The brand

Citizen is the second most important japanese manufacturer. The brand has often been in the shadow of its huge competitor Seiko but often offered something more than Seiko for an equivalent price. As a result, Citizen produced some very interesting models, technically very advanced and with sometimes unusual desgins.
