Win one of two Citizen Eco-Drive timepieces worth R4 499 each

Date:22 April 2016

Since its foundation in 1930, CITIZEN spearheaded a revolution of innovation in watchmaking. Among their prominent achievements is Eco-Drive, an original light-driven technological breakthrough.

Citizen’s progressive Eco-Drive technology harnesses the power of light – from any natural or artificial light source and converts it into energy. This means it recharges continuously, so you’ll never have to replace a battery. Fewer batteries in the waste stream mean that you will be making a positive contribution towards saving our environment and creating a sustainable future

As an innovation that has changed the way watches are powered today, Eco-Drive has no equal and inspires great potential of state-of-the-art technologies and exquisite design.

Under the new brand statement ‘ BETTER STARTS NOW”, Citizen has rapidly expanded its lineup of Eco-Drive watches with cutting edge technologies. Look out for, amongst others, the advanced satellite synchronised watches and Radio Controlled watches. And don’t forget about Citizen’s range of stunning ladies pieces, offering unique styles ranging from classic to fashion forward.
