The Origin of Citizen Is Reinterpreted to Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the First Citizen Watch

(PRESS RELEASE) In 2024, CITIZEN Watch is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the first-ever CITIZEN-branded watch – a hand-wound caliber 16 pocket watch. Every watch created by CITIZEN since 1924 has inherited the same DNA, along with the hope that all CITIZEN watches will be worn and loved by their owners throughout their lives. CITIZEN is now looking toward the next 100 years and the endless possibilities that will facilitate the creation of even better watches. As a symbol of this new beginning, CITIZEN is launching a special hand-wound pocket watch model in Autumn /Winter 2024.

*Price, launch date, and number of pieces may be subject to change.

In 1924, six years after the company was established, CITIZEN launched its first pocket watch into the world. The dial was finished with the brand name CITIZEN, reflecting the hope that CITIZEN watches would be worn and loved by citizens all over the world for many years. Since then, CITIZEN has utilized countless technological innovations to create watches that serve as close companions in the daily lives of people everywhere.

This new 2024 pocket watch is designed to reflect CITIZEN’s path forward for the next 100 years – it pays homage to the classic beauty of the original while also incorporating modern advancements including high accuracy and a lightweight titanium alloy case.

A free-sprung balance wheel is the heart of the watch, delivering high accuracy of -3 to +5 seconds a day. The design of the movement incorporates numerous gentle curves. The bridges have diamond-cut edges and the movement features the gentle waves of the Côtes de Genève finish. The advanced movement is contained inside a lightweight titanium alloy case. The watch is both a pleasure to hold and a pleasure to look at – lightweight luxury with a balance that gleams as it rhythmically marks the passage of time.

Since its foundation, CITIZEN has believed that it is always possible to make something better – and now is the time to start doing it. The company prides itself on constantly moving forward in the never-ending pursuit of the essence of the watch. This same dedication and determination was behind the creation of this new pocket watch – a watch that will serve as a close companion to its owner through all of life’s journeys.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
