Looking for a great gift for the special lady in your life? A Citizen watch makes a wonderful present for a variety of different occasions, thanks to sleek, stylish designs that are at once trendy and classic. Citizen, which is a Japanese company based in Tokyo, was originally founded in 1918 as the Shokosha Watch Research Institute – so you know the company knows their stuff, having been around for almost a century. The name Citizen came later, and originated from a pocket watch that the company sold in 1924. Citizen is known for a variety of different timepiece types, such as their Eco-Drive watches and their Atomic Timekeeping line. Eco-Drive watches are sustainable and earth-friendly, and are powered by a battery that is recharged by a solar panel hidden under the watch face. That means wearing your watch out and about is the easiest way to recharge it – no extra batteries needed. When these watches were initially produced, the solar power in the timepiece was supplemented by an automatic quartz power source. These days, the watch is one hundred percent solar-powered, depending on light and light only to recharge. This system has often been compared to a similar battery manufactured by Casio. The Tough Solar battery, which appears in Casio’s G-Shock line, is also powered by the sun.
Another popular line of watches from Citizen is the Atomic Timekeeping line. These incredible watches manage to track two time zones – one called “home” and the other called “world” – but the watches naturally synchronize to the home time zone. Great for business travelers who spend lots of time switching in and out of different time zones, Atomic Timekeeping watches enable wearers to see what time it is at home, but also, what time it is in the rest of the world. Do a lot of traveling, or know someone who does? An Atomic Timekeeping watch will enable you to get proper time signal reception on any continent – no matter where you are. These watches don’t just tell the time, however – the day, date, and Daylight Savings Time are also automatically set as soon as the watch is synchronized with a new time zone.
