About Citizen Watches
Citizen is one of the world’s biggest watch brands and has been a leader in the watchmaking sphere for over 100 years. The brand is renowned for its state-of-the-art technology and innovations which consistently break boundaries in the world of horology. Pioneers in the field, Citizen was first to create quartz and titanium watches, as well as paving the way in sustainable timekeeping, with the introduction of the award-winning Citizen Eco-Drive watches, which are completely solar-powered.
Influenced by its Japanese heritage, Citizen has put the notion that society’s needs come before our own at the heart of the brand. It continues to strive towards progressive thinking, social responsibility and maintaining an inclusive view of the world, with a passion for self-development and belief that “Better Starts Now”, motivating the brand to embrace opportunity and growth.
Excellence and creativity with an ingrained respect for great craftmanship are what make Citizen watches a favourite among luxury watchmakers across the globe. Paying homage to its origin as a pure manufacture d’horlogerie, Citizen’s manufacturing process is carefully managed to ensure every timepiece meets strict production and quality standards. Every step of the process is monitored, from building the individual facets of the watches to the finishing touches, ensuring neither quality nor style is compromised.

History of Citizen Watches
Citizen was founded in Tokyo, Japan in 1918. It was behind some of the biggest innovations in horology, including Japan’s first shock-resistant watch in 1956 followed by the country’s first water-resistant watch in 1959. Citizen was also an early adapter of sustainable watchmaking, launching the world’s first solar-powered watches with the trademarked Citizen Eco-Drive technology in 1976.
Over the years, Citizen has continued to pave the way in watchmaking innovations and eco-friendly horology, making a name for itself that quickly became known across the globe. In 2018 the brand was present at various Disney Parks & Resorts worldwide. This along with several co-branded watch collections for Disney, Marvel and Star Wars was part of a collaboration with the entertainment giant and further raised Citizen’s broad appeal in countries around the world. Today, Citizen’s mission is simple. It strives for better and for making every minute count. “If time never stops, why should we?”
Why Buy a Citizen Watch?
No matter whether you’re seeking a sustainable alternative to your current timepiece, or you simply want the best of modern watchmaking technology, Citizen’s watches are sure to satisfy your needs. While best known for its functionality, the brand refuses to compromise on style, so rest assured you’ll always look polished when flaunting a Citizen watch.
Renowned for precision and advanced innovations, Citizen watches are always ahead of their time. Their award-winning Citizen Eco-Drive technology led to the creation of the very first solar-powered watches, in which any light source including artificial, natural and even dim light can be used to power Citizen’s Eco-Drive pieces instead of batteries.
If you’re seeking an exceptional timepiece with the latest in modern technology, you’re in the right place. Here at Goldsmiths, we have a range of Citizen watches for men and women offering a range of different looks, so no matter what your style, you’re sure to find a watch to match.
We offer a number of collections of Citizen watches for men and women, so no matter whether you favour a modern, technical aesthetic or a classic-looking watch, you’re guaranteed to find the right timepiece for you.
The Citizen Red Arrows collection was inspired by the prowess and calibre of the British Royal Air Force’s aerobatics display team of the same name. Each piece captures the essence of Japanese engineering, crafted from the highest quality material and designed for optimal performance. This limited-edition collection also features Citizen Eco-Drive technology to support solar power and a chronograph complication.
Citizen’s Atomic Timekeeping watches for men are revered for their superior accuracy and can synchronise to an atomic clock with a margin of error of only one second in 100,000 years. Featuring the famed Citizen Eco-Drive solar technology, each piece is designed with the planet in mind, and the bold design and sporty aesthetic make it the ideal watch for everyday wear.
