Citizen established its roots in 1918, then went on to be known as ‘Citizen’ in 1930 when the Citizen watch company began producing its world-famous timepieces. Over the following decades, Citizen applied the precision miniaturization and precision production technologies developed through watch manufacturing to provide a wide range of electronic components and products.
Citizen has a holding structure and four major product lines: Watches, Machine Tools, Devices & Components, and Electronic Products. Our Code of Conduct ensures that standards such as product safety, fair and transparent business transactions, and a proactive engagement in environmental issues are maintained throughout these four businesses.
It has been over one hundred years since Citizen was founded. As we push through the next 100 years, Citizen will continue to strive to use our technical expertise and moral compass to deliver solutions our customers want and need.
