Citizen Watch Repair and Service
Citizen’s beginnings go back to 1924, when Citizen’s forerunner, the Shokosha Watch Research Watch Institute produced its first pocket watch the “CITIZEN”. The Mayor of Tokyo, Mr. Shimpei Goto, named the watch “CITIZEN” with the hope that the watch, a luxury item of those times, would become widely available to ordinary citizens and be sold throughout the world. Introduced in 1956, Parashock was the first shock resistant watch made by a Japanese manufacturer. And three years later, Parawater was hailed as the country’s first water resistant watch.
One of the latest milestones is the Eco-Drive system. Bringing new thinking to the art of watchmaking, this is a light powered solution that eliminates the need to change batteries – a revolution that made it the first watch technology to receive the Japan Environment Association’s Eco Mark for environmentally friendly products. Citizen is one of the leading premium watch brands that I repair and service.

About the Chrysler Building, Midtown, New York City, NY
Originally planned as an office project and designed by architect William Van Alen for former New York State senator turned real estate developer William H. Reynolds, the seventy-seven-story (1,046 feet) structure was to be topped by a glass dome, lighted from within, to give the effect of a giant glowing diamond in the New York evening sky.
