As a true manufacture d’horlogerie, Citizen integrates a comprehensive manufacturing process from creating individual components to a watch’s final assembly. It’s an artisan’s approach to watchmaking based on pushing forward the boundaries of technology and leveraging its experience toward exploring new possibilities.
One pivotal technological breakthrough was the development of a light-driven watch. Citizen pioneered this engineering innovation well ahead of other watch manufacturers as early as 1976, which led to the launch of the highly acclaimed Eco-Drive in 1995.
