Time began to be measured by Citizen in 1924, when the first pocket watch was made at the Shokosha Research Institute in Japan.
The mayor at that time of Tokyo, the city still today headquarters of the parent company Citizen Watch Co. Ltd., baptized this new Citizen watch, in the hope that this object, until then considered to be of great luxury and therefore only reserved for a minority, could become available to all citizens.
Since its founding, Citizen has fostered a multicultural mindset, source of excellence and creativity. From the beginning, they have assumed the responsibility to contribute to positive changes in society and to evolve through their art.
As true watchmakers,Citizen employs an integrated manufacturing process that ranges from the design of the individual components of each watch to final assembly. It is a craft approach based on expanding technological limits and using all your experience to explore new possibilities.
The following 84 years included innovations such as radio-controlled clocks and clocks with satellite time synchronization. Another exceptional creation was the revolutionary development of Eco-Drive technology. Citizen pioneered this technology in 1976, far ahead of other manufacturers. Using electricity generated from any light source, this extraordinary innovation forever changed the source of power for watches. Eco-Drive technology eliminated the need to replace batteries, an especially important advantage in many hard-to-obtain areas, and put the pleasure of owning a Citizen watch within the reach of many more people, making the experience even more memorable.
The Citizen Promastercollection was launched in 1989 with three ranges: Aqualand, Altichron and Promaster Sky.
TheCitizen Promaster Aqualand revolutionized the world of professional diving because, for the first time in diving history, a brand had achieved a true diver's wristwatch. It carried a digital depth gauge, powered by three lithium batteries and the rear case sealed with six screws.
Today,Citizen Promaster Aqualandwatches remain one of the highest rated watches in the diving world. They are watches with good finishes, very functional and with a quality / price that is very difficult to beat.
Super Titaniumsare the perfect solution to keep your watch scratch-free even with everyday use, thanks to Citizen's patented Duratect surface hardening technology. Super Titanium watches are also hypoallergenic, resistant to corrosion and salt water, and up to 40% lighter than those made of steel.
Another development that bears witness to Citizen's relentless search for improvement, gives Super Titanium an unusual luminosity through a platinum finishing process.
Light reflects off the platinum-treated surface, giving visual effects of extraordinary brilliance and liveliness, emphasizing the difference between glossy and satin surfaces, and the lines that characterize the case and bracelet design. The Super Titanium PTIC platinum finish makes it even more valuable, a material already equipped with exceptional virtues.
Citizen launched the world's first multi-channel radio controlled watch in 1993, and has continued to be a pioneer in the field ever since, achieving a margin of error of 1 second every 100,000 years. Citizen Radio Controlled watches receive the radio signal from an atomic clock to set the time correctly.

I am very happy with this purchase. I own several citizen eco-drive watches, but this is my absolute favorite. When set along side several of my other high end mechanical chronographs this watch looks to have the build quality to match them all. Citizen did a great job with this movement (the 1/5 second chronograph minute hand and snap back reset have the feel of a high end mechanical chronograph movement).
