The Citizen Story
The organization was established in 1924. The founding fathers chosen the name Citizen so it would be "Close to the Hearts of Individuals Everywhere" and soon following adopted the company’s formal name, Citizen Watch Company.

Through the last seventy-five years Citizen has expanded its business all through the world and has accomplished recognition as the global brand. The past twenty-five year period has coincided with the company’s dramatic rise to its current position as the world’s largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held each and every year because 1986.
Beyond sheer size, Citizen is also recognized as a worldwide leader in advanced technology. From the world’s slimmest LCD watch to the initially voice recognition watch and the world’s initial specialist dive watch with an electronic depth sensor, Citizen’s record of "world’s firsts" is unmatched.
A great deal more lately, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in timekeeping with its Eco-Drives watches that are light powered. With models ranging from dress models to sports models to expert dive watches, Citizen Eco-Drive runs continuously in any kind of all-natural or artificial light for a lifetime of use. Fueled by light, it never ever needs a battery.

Customer Critiques

-Lightweight titanium.
-Sapphire face.
-Solar-powered Eco-Drive. Hopefully servicing won't be needed for a variety of years.
-Subdued look for a chronograph from two feet away the subdials fade into the background of the face and does not interfere with reading of the time. You only notice the dials when you want to notice them. Rather thin chrono second hand. All this = an highly readable watch.
-Chrono second hand = five beats per second. It's no Bulova Precisionist, but it really is a nice sweep for a quartz.
Chronograph cons:
-Restricted to 60 minutes no hour totalizer.
-Hands of minute subdial does not stop precisely on every single minute. "Is that 22 or 23 minutes?"
-Quit/begin only no split time function.
-Face has this weird searching plastic film that reflects like a CD in vivid light in some angles. Not apparent indoors. Could be semi-transparent for eco-drive functionality?
-Subdials: 12o'clock = chrono minute totalizer, 6o'clock = seconds counter, 9'oclock = 24 hour clock indicator (Excellent I guess if you're stuck in a cave and can not tell day from night.. but it's also valuable for when you're setting your watch so that your date doesn't shift over at noon. Other than that, I wish it doubled as a chrono hour totalizer).
-Case and bracelet = uniform, brushed titanium finish. Minute accents of polish on the edges of the lugs and on the chronograph buttons and stem.
-Single fold, Side push-button disengagement of clasp.
-Subdials are sunken into the face, but there's a rim around every single dial, comparable to a crater. Reminds me of when the liquid metal T1000 gets shot in Terminator 2.

This watch has a lot of features for the price, Eco-Drive, Titanium, Sapphire Crystal, Water Resistant to 100m.
Also, the on-line images do not do the watch justice. It has a similiar appearance to the Omega Seamaster (watch worn by James Bond in the most current films) with the black dial face and titanium band, except this watch also has the chronograph and for a lot less cash. It has a classy look and can be worn to work, dinner, sporting events, etc. As noted in other reviews, the date window is slightly recessed but does not detract from the general look of the watch. Rather satisfied with the purchase of this watch.
