Founded during 1918, the Citizen Holdings Co., LTD is mostly stationed in Tokyo, Japan. CINCOM precision tools are currently manufactured by this company. The trade name of Citizen came from a pocket watch in 1924. The Citizen Holdings Co., LTD is a large producer of timepieces. Therefore, citizen watches are some of the most popular timepieces in the world.

The most well known Citizen products in the United States are the Eco-Drive timepieces. Special miniature solar panels are behind each face of Eco-Drive product and provide energy to the battery. However, unfortunately, the Eco-Drive Duo line, even with their unique solar power technology, were discontinued and have been very rare ever since.

However, the Eco-Drive Thermo watches are available and also possess unique technology. These devices use the temperature of the surrounding climate and the heat from the wearer to provide energy to the battery.

The official Citizen Watch website offers information about how their Eco-Drive technology is exclusively dependent on light in order to provide energy to their batteries. The Eco-Drive and Tough Solar technologies are very similar. All of the Eco-Drive watches are fashioned in Japan and then completed in China.

The Citizen Watch Company also produces the Skyhawk A-T line. It is a popular timepiece collection that has Atomic Timekeeping. Radio-controlled signals are used for Atomic Timekeeping. This feature allows the technology to connect with atomic clicks all over the globe. North America, Japan and Europe are the main synchronization destinations. Depending on the home and world time zones, the watch will automatically adjust to fit the correct frequency.

The world and home time zones are the two that the Skyhawk A-T watches can synchronize to. The watch wearer can easily manipulate the device to match whichever time zone needed. A wearer can be on a different continent yet their timepiece will synchronize with the correct time signals. Other times will also be maintained. The watch will automatically set the date, the day and Daylight Savings Time settings when it is synchronized. The Skyhawk A-T timepieces are similar to the Casino Wave Ceptor atomic clock synchronization.

Special collector watches are also produced by the Citizen Holdings Company. On some devices, the colors of the Blue Angels, blue and gold, are clearly displayed. Along with the noticeable colors, the Citizen Eco-Drive technology is installed into the watch. Since the timepiece is part of the Skyhawk A-T line, Atomic Timekeeping features are also included. Time, distance and speed calculations can be made using the slide ruled bezel.

The DCP clasp, which stands for the Deployment Clasp with a Push button, has been fitting into many of the popular Citizen wrist-bands. These clasps can be used with leather bands and, when fastened, appear similar to the usual eye-hold and link pin leather watchbands. The Calibre 8700 is an example of such.

The Citizen Holdings Company does not restrict themselves to mens watch production. This company also makes compact electronic organizers as well as calculators. Miniature, handheld televisions and computer printers are items that are manufactured by Citizen.

The Compaq Computer Company contacted Citizen in the mid-1990s and, since then, the two organizations have been making notebook computers. The computers are constructed in Japan and Far Eastern markets. The Compaq title is on all the computers.
