Celebrating 100 years, CITIZEN, a pioneer in watchmaking and innovative technology, promotes excellence and creativity with a deep-rooted respect for craftsmanship. CITIZEN advocates “Better Starts Now,” searching for and accomplishing goals that better our lives. In this respect, CITIZEN aligns with organizations and personalities that reflect the values of the brand including the Citizen Naismith Trophy, National Merit Scholarship and Good360.
As a “citizen of the world” we bear the responsibility to help cultivate positive change and on-going evolution to our craft. For over 40 years, CITIZEN’s Eco-Drive technology has served as the prime example of how the brand is dedicated to making the world and its environment a better place. A simple yet revolutionary concept, Eco-Drive harnesses the power of light from any natural or artificial light source and converts it into energy. Using a renewable natural resource instead of filling our landfills with discarded watch batteries.
Our name speaks to our belief of inclusion with a multi-cultural mindset to create timepieces that can be enjoyed by citizens all over the world.
This year CITIZEN solidified an alliance partnership with Disney, another powerhouse brand with similar values and ideologies. With a long-term partnership in place, CITIZEN and Disney plan to align on activations surrounding the Disney Parks, Marvel, Star Wars and more! CITIZEN will be the Official Timepiece of both Walt Disney World and Disneyland with branded clocks in both theme parks along with other partnership appearances throughout the U.S. In addition, CITIZEN was prominently displayed within the Marvel booth at this year’s New York Comic Con, showcasing the first collection of Marvel x Citizen watch collection due out Spring 2019.
Sharing a concern for man’s impact on the environment, Citizen is proud to sponsor Eric Larsen, a polar adventurer, with expeditions to the North and South Poles in 2018. Larsen, also a guide and educator, has spent the past 20 years traveling in some of the most remote and extreme environments on the planet. Larsen plans to utilize Citizen Promaster Altichron and Tough on his upcoming 2018 adventures, keeping any outdoor adventurer on track and on time, which is critical to their survival.
