* Citizen Watch is known for pioneering radio synchronized, super accurate watches
* Vintage style meets space-age tech
* A variety of bands and watch face designs
As technologies go, the watch goes back a surprisingly long way. The first portable watches cropped up around the early 1500s. To put that time in perspective, this means it’s possible people were checking the time on watches not so different from the analog watches you can buy today, prior to putting on suits of armor and actually going to besiege a castle. That’s not to say there haven’t been some improvements since then the olden days. The Citizen Watch Company, for example, introduced some of the world’s mot accurate and functional wrist watches, including models that are synchronized to atomic clocks and accurate to within one second per hundred thousand years. Here are five of the best Citizen watches you can get today on Amazon.
