Daily Deals on Citizen watches from Shnoop.com. Citizen was established in 1918 and its name was selected so it would be "Close to the Hearts of People Everywhere". The past 25 year period has coincided with the company's dramatic rise to its current position as the world's largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held every year since 1986. It has since released the world’s first multi-band atomic timekeeping watch in 1993, and has remained a pioneer of this field. The Citizen light powered Eco-Drive technology is precise time powered by any light source, a true breakthrough in the modern watch craft.
