The company was founded in 1924. The company's founders chose the name CITIZEN to be "...close to the hearts of people all over the world...", which soon became a popular shorthand for the company's full name, Citizen Watch Company.
Throughout its long history, CITIZEN has tirelessly expanded its business, establishing itself among the well-known watch brands. Since 1986, CITIZEN has firmly held the position of the largest watch manufacturer in the world.
In addition to business size, CITIZEN is also known as a global leader in innovative technology. From the world's thinnest LCD watch, to the world's first watch with voice recognition, and the world's first diver's watch with an electronic depth sensor, the company's list of accomplishments, characterized by the words "world's first" or "most", does not unparalleled.
Recently, Citizen has firmly established itself as a leader in solar-powered eco-friendly watches with the introduction of the Eco-Drive series to the global market. This series includes watches of various designs - classic suit, pronounced sports and diving models. All these watches have one thing in common - the use of the energy of natural or artificial light to ensure the operation of the mechanism. Receiving energy from outside, using it to recharge the battery, this watch can last almost forever.
With the introduction of the Skyhawk A-T, a radio-controlled aviation chronograph, Citizen has reaffirmed its title as the world leader in watch technology.
