Citizen is one of the largest and most popular watchmakers in the world today. The company’s timekeeping origins date back to 1924 in Tokyo, Japan with the introduction of a pocket watch by the Shokosha Watch Research Institute. The pocket watch was given the name Citizen by the city’s mayor with hopes that a luxury item of this quality would become available to ordinary citizens and sold throughout the world by the Institute.
The Tokyo mayor’s statement would later prove to become a prophecy as the Institute changed their name to Citizen and introduced many revolutionary timepieces in the past ninety years, including the first Japanese shock-proof watch in 1956 named the Parashock, along with the first Japanese water-resistant timepiece in 1959 named the Parawater and the world’s thinnest wristwatch for men in 1962, named the Diamond Flake.
In 1975 the Citizen Watch Company of America was established, marking the brand’s complete distribution channel in the continent after a 15-year distribution agreement with Bulova Watches. Twenty-three years later in 2008, Citizen purchased Bulova, making the them the largest watchmaker in the world.
One the biggest milestones in Citizen’s watchmaking history came in 1995 with the introduction of the Eco-Drive wristwatches. These innovative, solar-powered quartz timepieces are powered by the rays of the sun or other light sources, and unlike other quartz watches do not require new batteries.
