Citizen is one of the largest manufacturers of watches world wide. For years they have set the standards of the trade. With their brands CITIZEN and VAGARY, citizen has managed again and again to develop new, ground breaking technologies, that use natural energy resources and have proven themselves to be very ecologically efficient.
This innovative drive system uses solar energy, and is used in mandy Citizen watches. Through the use of highly sensitive photocells, even the light of a single candle can be converted into enough electric energy, to power a Citzen watch! Because unused energy is saved in a small battery, these Citzen watches still work, even after months of being stored in a dark place. With a light-free reserve for up to three years of darkness, these Citizen Eco-Drive watches are absolutely unique. You never have to change another battery, with these solar watches! And this proves very handy on divers watches, because a battery change often is the cause for leakages in water proof watches.
Besides incorporating the most innovative technologies, Citizen watches are known for their excellent build quality, and the use of high-end materials (such as Titanium), and a very attractive design. Titanium is a material which is becoming increasingly important in watch production, because it is extremely light, scratch resistant and hard. This is why Citizen has devoted an entire product-line to titanium.
Citizen radio-controlled watches
Beside Junghans, Cititzen ist he second most important manufacturer of radio controlled watches, world wide. These are never off more than a millisecond – just as the atomic clock. The watches receive a radio signal which resets the watch continuously to the correct time. Of course these watches automatically set themselves to daylight savings time.
