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.

What a stunning watch, great quality as usual for citizen. The white is proper white while the accent isnt as bright as the pictures suggest, pink yes but not to over the top. Leather strap very comfortable.

My watch arrived as promised and matched up to all my expectations, I absolutely love it. This will be my third citizen quartz eco drive watch and two of them purchased from watch shop. I actually think the watch is even better than the pictures or video portray it. Looks sparkly and expensive . I had the watch adjusted to fit my wrist and that was a good job too.

A timeless piece delivered on time with instructions fulfilled. The watch was a late birthday present for my father who loved it. The fact that I was able to specify the size of his wrist and they were able to adjust the strap beforehand was so useful.

Ladies Citizen Bracelet Gift Set Watch EW1909-64A
Reviewed on 20th October 2016
Reviewed by Mike
The watch is not overbearing. The rose gold banding blends well with the sliver and the watchface is lifted by the crystal surround without being overpowered. The face itself is well proportioned and clear to read. The date window is a little on the small side and makes it difficult to see the date at an angle. The watch comes with a matching bracelet made from the same materials as the watch strap. It has three small lozenges set with crystals which is a nice additional touch to the piece. The packaging is fairly standard - a circular case inside a cardboard box. Inside the case the watch and bracelet are not fixed and will move freely about. If you are buying this as a gift you will want to remove the silica and lay the bracelet out as mine had tangled. Overall a very nice watch and bracelet set but the packaging could be improved.
