The comapny was founded in 1924. The founding fathers selected the name Citizen so it would be "Close to the Hearts of People Everywhere" and soon after adopted the company´s formal name, Citizen Watch Company.
During the last 75 years Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and has acheived recognition as a major global brand. The past 25 year period has seen the company acheive a dramatic rise to its current position as the worlds largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held every year since 1986.
More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in ecologically friendly timekeeping with it's eco drive collection of light powered watches. With models ranging from dress models to sport models to professional dive watches, Citizen Eco Drive runs continuously in any kind of natural or artificial light for a lifetime of use. Fueled by light, it never needs a battery.
Ward and Sibley are proud to be an authorised retailer of the Citizen brand and have a range of Citizen watches on display - from stylish ladies wrist watches to their flagship, and conceivably most advanced dive watches in the world.
