The Citizen Watch Guide

Citizen is a Japanese watch company that’s known for being well-built, using solid materials, stunningly good quality assurance, and being astoundingly affordable. 

On top of all those things, they’re also renowned for their innovations in watchmaking. In some ways, Citizen watches are right up there with their fellow Japanese brand Seiko in driving the art forward with their experiments and breakthroughs. 

For instance, the Citizen Chronomaster line is, unofficially at least, the most accurate quartz-crystal watch of all time. They’re within 5 seconds of accuracy over the course of an entire year of operation, which is almost unbelievable. 

Additionally, in 1959 they launched a dive watch called the Parawater, which was Japan’s first fully-waterproof watch. They followed that a few decades later with the 1300m Professional Diver’s watch, the most pressure-resistant watch in the world at the time. 

However, it’s the Eco-Drive that’s garnered the most attention, and it continues to, er, drive Citizen’s success and admiration amongst today’s most fervent luxury watch collectors. 

The Eco-Drive is essentially a solar power mechanism that lives just under the dial and turns light into power. This is then used to keep the watches running, well, indefinitely. As long as there’s available light to keep a charge, that is. 

It’s an innovation that’s both sustainable and convenient, using a readily available natural resource to power a watch without the wearer ever having to worry about keeping it wound or changing batteries. 

The truly astonishing part about innovations like the Eco-Drive is how Citizen has managed to produce and sell these inventive and high-quality watches for such affordable prices. It’s very rare that you’ll find one that costs more than $1000, and they can often be had for much less than that. 

Of course when you factor in the savings you get by purchasing through WatchMaxx, the prices on these wonderful pieces truly can’t be beat. 

Let’s take a look at some Citizen watches that we have in stock and ready to ship.
