Citizen Watch, the company was founded in Japan in 1918 by Japanese Jeweller Kamekichi Yamazaki with the name of Shokosha Watch. In 1925 launched a trendy pocket watch, which was called Citizen, after that the company adopted the new name.

Citizen Watches Australia is today one of the largest watch manufacturers, the world leader in technology and number one in movement sales. In 1995, it revolutionised watchmaking with the ECO-DRIVE system, a solar clock in which photovoltaic cells were located in the lower part of the sphere and receive the light through a translucent panel, in this way the area does not limit the designs.

Brand Overview

The Citizen Watch brand already has a history of almost a century. Founded in 1918 under the name of Shokosha Watch Research Institute, it was not until 1924 that Citizen offered for sale a pocket watch under the name of Citizen. Due to its great success, the same year the company changed its name to Citizen Watch, a name officially registered in 1930.

Another contribution of Citizen to watchmaking and diving was the launch of the AQUALAND JP-2000 in 1985, still used today by many professional divers for its excellent reliability. Special mention should make of the Citizen-Miyota movements they incorporate prestigious brands to their movements.

Although the Citizen brand specialises in all types of watches, & its models are mainly characterised by the fact that they designed for sports enthusiasts.

Citizen Eco-Drive

It helps to detect the time, including universal time, in its most precise form. For professionals, a whole range is available that works in all circumstances, such as in air, deep, or undersea.

For those who want the same class of excellence at a reduced cost, there are the brand's simple quartz-battery watches, as well as mechanical watches, which are becoming scarce in recent times.
