Style Essentials: Matching CITIZEN Watches with Your Wardrobe

Since our establishment in 1918, we have consistently fulfilled our commitment to providing watch enthusiasts worldwide with top-notch quality and exceptional value. Our innovative technologies, such as Eco-Drive, which utilises light-to-power watches, and Satellite Wave GPS for unmatched timekeeping accuracy, have earned us international recognition.

With that said, our timepieces have evolved to represent more than just eye candy. They now symbolise strength, dependability and a refined design that solidified our position as a leader in the watchmaking industry.

Understanding Your Personal Style

Discovering your own unique sense of style is essential in putting together a wardrobe that not only looks great on you but also boosts your confidence in any setting. To achieve this, it is best to try on a variety of looks, take note of how each one makes you feel, and pay attention to patterns, colours and cuts that speak to you.

How to Assess Your Wardrobe and Fashion Choices

Before selecting your next timepiece, it’s crucial to thoroughly evaluate your wardrobe and fashion preferences. Think about the colours, patterns and styles you frequently wear, as well as the occasions for which your outfits are typically intended—be it formal business settings, casual outings or sports activities.

By understanding these factors, you can select a statement timepiece that not only complements your capsule wardrobe but also takes your personal style to new levels.

How to Match Watches With Outfits

Incorporating watch coordination into your attire can transform your style from every day to exceptional. Whether you choose to harmonise its colour patterns with your shirt or any other element of your ensemble, the impact is noteworthy. To make the most of your timepiece collection, let’s explore different fashion inspirations below.

Dressing for Formal Occasions:

For occasions that call for a traditional suit and tie, go for a timepiece from our Dress Collection. This collection is full of stylish, beautiful watches, so you don't have to worry about not being able to find one that goes well with your formal wear.

Alternatively, the Series 8 Collection, renowned for its bold yet minimalist aesthetic, makes a strong statement without overshadowing your ensemble. The sleek and polished appearance of these watches aligns perfectly with formal attire, infusing your look with an added dash of sophistication.

Casual and Everyday Wear:

Wondering how to elevate your casual wear? The answer is simple: style it with watches. Opt for timepieces that subtly enhance your outfit rather than dominating it. For instance, our Perpetual Calendar Collection offers an array of functions and styles, perfect for any lifestyle or occasion.

Consider trying our timeless gold-tone stainless steel case and bracelet watch, complete with a black dial. This piece effortlessly adds a touch of sophistication to your laid-back attire, be it chinos or a knitted sweater. For an understated hint of class, our watch featuring a sleek white dial, a rose gold-plated case and a leather strap, strikes the perfect balance without being overly extravagant.

(Sporty) and Active Looks:

Our sports watches are built to last and look great whether you're beating the treadmill, hitting the pavement, or exploring the great outdoors. Choose a timepiece from our Promaster or Super Titanium series, all of which have contemporary, sporty designs and advanced functionality.

When looking for a watch for a busy lifestyle, there are a few important things to keep in mind. First, it's important that the watch lasts a long time. Look for watches made of high-quality materials like titanium or stainless steel and with surfaces that won't get scratched, like sapphire crystal.

Water and shock resistance are also valuable features, particularly for those involved in water sports or high-intensity activities. Search for watches with clear, legible dials and luminous indicators for easy readability. Finally, choose timepieces with additional features such as chronographs, timers or altimeters to suit your specific needs.

Accessorising with CITIZEN Watches

Our watches are a versatile accessory that can be worn with any outfit. When layering accessories with your watch, the focus should be harmony and balance. If you own the 831 model from Series 8, with its striking octagonal case, it's best to pair it with understated accessories so the watch can stand out. To effortlessly rock the modern timepieces from our Dress range, like the one with a sleek silver/white dial and stainless steel bracelet, ensure a harmonious and neat appearance by coordinating the metal of your watch with other accessories.

Tips for creating a balanced and stylish look

One of the most important aspects of looking fashionable is matching your watch to the event and place. For formal settings, opt for a tasteful selection of fewer, yet elegantly designed accessories. On the other hand, when it comes to casual occasions, let your creativity shine by embracing more whimsical and playful watch combinations.

Colour and Material Coordination

Choosing a watch colour that pairs well with your wardrobe is a key step in refining your style. Neutral tones such as black, silver or gold are versatile and complement most outfits, making watches from our Super Titanium or Perpetual Calendar collections excellent choices. For those who prefer a vibrant twist, a colourful watch can add a striking contrast to a minimalist or monochrome wardrobe.

The material of your watch strap also plays a substantial role in shaping your overall look. Leather straps, like those found in the Dress collection, exude timeless designs, perfect for formal or business settings. Metal straps, as seen in the Series 8 and Chronograph collections, provide a more versatile aesthetic, suitable for both casual and formal situations. For a more sporty appeal, straps made of fabric or silicone, such as those in the Promaster collection, are the ideal pick.

Seasonal Style Transitions

Adapting your watch choice to the changing seasons is a great way to keep your style fresh and in sync with the times.

During the summer months, we often lean towards lighter and brighter shades, making the sleek and modern designs from our Super Titanium Collection a superb match for the season. They are not only visually cooling but also durable for outdoor summer adventures.

In winter, you might want to go for the timepieces from our Dress or Series 8 Collections. Their warm and elegant appeal effortlessly complements heavier, layered winter outfits. Watches with a splash of colour, like those in the Perpetual Calendar Collection, are a great way to celebrate spring's arrival. As for autumn, opt for watches with earth tones or gold accents, such as those in the Chronograph collection, to go well with the fall palette.

Bold and Statement Pieces

With our watches being known for their unique designs and innovative features, we offer an incredible way to make a statement with your timepiece. A watch from the Promaster Collection can be a bold statement about your adventurous spirit, while a piece from the Dress Collection can signal refined elegance.

You might also like the minimalistic elegance of Series 8 watches or the intriguing complexity of an analogue-digital piece from the Chronograph Collection, distinguished by its gold-tone stainless steel rectangular case. Then, there's the Perpetual Calendar Collection, renowned for its watches boasting sleek white dials and rose gold plated cases protected by sapphire glass, allowing you to radiate sophistication effortlessly.

By carefully selecting a Citizen watch that aligns with your personality and style, you can turn your timepiece into a powerful statement of who you are.

Care and Maintenance of CITIZEN Watches

Keeping your Citizen watch in top condition requires attentive care and regular maintenance. To ensure the longevity of your timepiece, it is recommended to clean it gently with a soft cloth to remove any dirt or sweat, especially after exposure to harsh environments.

Avoid using chemical cleaners as they can harm the watch's materials. When it comes to storage, always place your watch in a cool, dry place, away from any magnetic fields which could interfere with its functionality. If your watch is not being used for an extended period, store it in its original case or a watch box to prevent accidental damage or scratches.
