Here is some information about the Citizen Company’s History:
For almost eight decades, Citizen has been ahead of its time. Our brand has always stood for innovations and high precision that make life better for everyday people and now we are raising our sights to meet the needs of the new Millennium.
The company was established in 1918. The founding fathers selected the name Citizen so it would be “Close to the Hearts of People Everywhere” and soon after adopted the company’s formal name, Citizen Watch Company.
During the last ninety-three years Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and has achieved recognition as a global brand. The past 30 year period has coincided with the company’s dramatic rise in its current position as the world’s largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held every year since 1986.
Beyond sheer size, Citizen is also recognized as a worldwide leader in advanced technology. From the world’s slimmest LCD watch to the first voice recognition watch and the world’s first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor, Citizen’s record of “world firsts” is unmatched.
More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in Ecologically Friendly timekeeping with its Eco-Drive collection of light powered watches. With models ranging from dress to sport to professional dive watches, Citizen Eco-Drive runs continuously in any kind of natural or artificial light for a lifetime of use. In 2007, Citizen introduced radio controlled atomic-timekeeping to the Eco-Drive collection, thus developing the most accurate watches in the world. With the presentation of the Eco-Drive Satellite Wave at Baselworld 2011, Citizen has re-affirmed its position as a worldwide leader in timekeeping technology.
What is the Eco-Drive technology and how does it work? ~ Natural and artificial lights are absorbed through the dial of the watch. A special solar cell converts the light into energy. Enough energy is stored to power the timepiece, even in the dark, from 135 days to 7 years depending on the model. You never need to change a battery! A timepiece that never needs a battery change and will run forever. Citizen Eco-Drive technology converts natural and artificial light sources into energy. It recharges continuously in any kind of light to run forever. Eco-Drive timepieces are ‘Unstoppable’.
