Citizen watch brand overview

Citizen is recognised as one of the world leaders in watchmaking, and is one of the key Japanese watch brands available in the UK. Known for its innovation in both technology and design, Citizen is the proud owner of Eco-drive technology, featured in most Citizen watches. Founded in 1924, Citizen is the worlds largest manufacturer of quality watches and watch movements. In 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008, Citizen was voted watch brand of the year.


What does Eco-drive mean'

Eco-drive technology is the term used for the movement fitted into most modern Citizen watches. It means your watch is powered by light, rather than a traditional quartz battery. In terms of real world use, it means that your watch never needs a new battery change. Also, it doesn't require regular light exposure. A fully charged Citizen Ecodrive watch, even if left in a drawer, will continue to operate for up to 6 months using its stored energy. Furthermore, it doesn't need sunlight to recharge - it charges in any form of light, natural or artificial.


How does this work'

Inside your Citizen watch is a rechargeable battery. This light is charged by light which penetrates through the dial of the watch. You can view a video of how citizen Ecodrive works with the following link : Citizen Ecodrive video.


Citizen quartz watches

Although most customers opt for the Ecodrive models, for the budget conscious customer we also offer Citizen quartz watches. These watches are powered by regular batteries which need changing every few years and offer great value for money.

I have been looking for a bracelet watch a long time. This watch is stunning and not over bling. I have a very slim wrist and the size is just perfect. The blue dial and diamond inserts adds elegance to the watch. This watch however does make a quiet ticking noise with the secondhand. Watchshop was able to price match, has free delivery and no quibble return and free bracelet adjustment. Delivery was super fast and the whole experience has been top notch. They are much cheaper than any high street retailers and the range are a lot more extensive. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

I bought this watch for myself as it would compliment a suit if you were going to a interview and it also goes well with a short sleeved shirt, the other thing i like about this watch is the diamonds on the black face which sparkle beautifully also the gold hands stand out, and the gold bezel blends in beautifully on the stainless steel case, the bracelet is another stand out feature were you have brushed stainless steel with polished gold plate in the middle a lovely touch, i would highly recommend this watch. Watch Shop brilliant as usual.

Lovely watch, delivered on time. Strap too big, probably my fault, voucher to adjust it for £5 no use as no stores round here. Would have been nice if watch was set to correct date and time
Very good

This is the first time I have found a watch that fits me comfortably. I have tiny wrists and usually I have to buy childrens watches or make unsightly holes in the strap. When I have had watches made smaller they do not sit well. This watch, whilst catering for normal wrists, also suits us with slimmer wrists without a long bit of strap showing. The numbers are clearly visible. The next watch I want is one with the mother of pearl face for the occasional evening out.

Wanted an everyday watch that had enough sparkle for a going out watch too. Love the mother of pearl face and diamonds around the face edge. Its the perfect size, not too big or chunky like a lots of watches I saw. Reduced the bracelet size, but needed more removing on collection from goldsmiths free of charge arrived very quick, excellent service.
