Citizen Watches South Africa

Citizen is considered as the most upscale brand on the Japanese watch market today. With a heavily americanised style of promotion and a great customer base in the United States, one could consider Citizen more of an American than a Japanese watch brand but all Citizen watches represent the excellence of Japanese precision and attention to detail. Let’s see what makes Citizen Watches so special and where we can find Citizen Watch stores and authorised dealers of Citizen Watches in South Africa.

The brand is overly popular in the United States to where it mainly targets its releases and its ambassadors are world famous sportsmen and women who help with the promotion of the brands newest collections.

Most Citizen watches feature a special deployment clasp which comes with a push button, also called DCP that is basically a built-in system for its metal and leather bracelet bands and ensures the total hold and comfort of its wearer at all times.

Citizen’s primary watch is the Eco-Drive that comes in around 100 different collections all featuring the same eco-system, that dramatically extends the lifetime of each Citizen watch. The main system of Eco-Drive includes a built in solar panel that is attached to the battery and feeds it whenever there is direct light on the watch. Citizen’s Eco Drive watches are also available for women with diamond and Mother of Pearl inclusions to make the models all the more exclusive. Citizen watches come in three families: the Citizen Eco Drive, the Citizen Signature and Drive from Citizen Eco-Drive.
