    BRIEF HISTORY OF CITIZEN WATCHES

    Citizen Holdings Co., Ltd. (シチズンホールディングス株式会社 Shichizun Hōrudingusu Kabushiki-gaisha) is the core company of a Japanese global corporate group based in Tokyo Japan. The company was originally founded as Shokosha Watch Research Institute in 1918 and is currently known as the manufacturer of CINCOM precision lathe machine tools as well as CITIZEN watches. The trade name originated from a pocket watch CITIZEN sold in 1924. It is one of the world's largest producers of watches. For almost eight decades, Citizen has been ahead of its time. Citizen brand has always stood for innovations and high precision that make life better for everyday people and now they are raising their sights to meet the needs of the new Millennium.
    In 1924, when Citizen's forerunner, the Shokosha Watch Research Watch Institute produced its first pocket watch the "CITIZEN". The then 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.
    Time and again Citizen has pioneered groundbreaking technologies and helped to make watches an indispensable part of modern life. 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 our 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.
    And in 2003, Citizen continues to evolve and be ahead of its time with the launch of Stiletto. This is the World's thinnest light powered watch - a watch so revolutionary it combines eco-drive technology with a refined, sleek and sophisticated case and bracelet from 4.4mm thick.
    Citizen is, however more diverse then simply watches. In fact watches only represent less than 40% of the company's business. Today Citizen is drawing on a heritage of proven quality and technologies as we develop the market for watches, clocks, jewellery, eyeglass frames and health care products.

    History of ZodiacWatches 
    Bowman said that Ariste Calame (1839-1917) first set up a workshop in 1864 in Cret-Vaillant The watch company was founded in 1882 by Ariste Calame. The original name of the company was Ariste Calame. It was a small workshop. A 1990 as said the began to specialize in sports watches. The name "Zodiac" was used early but was not registered until 1908. The founder’s son, Louis Ariste Calame, was sent to watchmaking school and then began to participate in the business in 1895. Under his direction the business Calame, took over the business that year. Members of the family given Bourdin are shown below.
    Bowman said that the company gave up being a subcontractor for FAVREPERRET and became an exporter. In 1908-1911 it made its own calibers and employed about 50.
    The company was listed in 1920 as Ariste Calame fils (the first Ariste Calame had died in 1917.) See ad below . In 1923 it was listed as Ariste Calame: Montres Zodiac, with wrist watches for men and pocket watches, plus an ad.
    ZODIAC was imported in 1924 by the Eisenstadt Mfg. CO., St. Louis, MO.
    Rene Calame, grandson of the founder joined the company and made commercial and technical changes. His father, the younger Ariste Calame, became one of the founder Presidents of the Federation Horlogere.
    Bowman said the Zodiac-Sport was introduced; it was a 10 ½ ligne hermetic watch, not a table clock, in a leather-covered case, that could be opened and closed with one hand.
    The company was listed in 1933-1935 in Le Locle and Geneva. The listings were accompanied by pictures of wrist watches labeled "unbreakable."
    The Grace model was listed in 1940 and 1966.
    The company exhibited at Basle in 1949 with the Datagraphic, a 12-ligne calendar with the moon phases, and the Autographic self-wind with visible power reserve indicator. A 1949 ad from the Zodiac Watch Agency, New York, for the Autographic called it a "new self-winding watch with a power reserve gauge." Fischer discussed this watch that year and so did SHJ in January, 1950. (See Up Down) The company exhibited again at Basle in 1950. An ad in 1950 was again for the self-winding. Autographic with up-and-down indicator.
    During the last year of his life the son, Ariste Calame, organized and set up a new factory building in Le Locle which was opened in 1951.
    The company was listed in 1951. Zodiac was listed by Quick Fit in 1952 as an American import using movements by ETA, A. SCHILD, LIENGME, and FONT.
    A 1953 ad was for the Autographic, "famous for Reserve Power Gauge, amazing rotor action, automatic."
    A 1955 ad from the ZODIAC WATCH AGENCY, New York ( a division of Edward Trauner Inc.) said " The world’s most modern watch," referring to the ZODIAC Autographic, which sold for 71.50 in a stainless case, 89.50 in a gold-filled case. It was a self-wind with a power reserve power gauge, 17 jewels, water and shock resistant, anti-magnetic, unbreakable crystal, radium dial, with a sweep seconds. It was the official watch of the Swiss Federal Railways.
    The second Ariste Calame died in 1955, aged 80. He was then president of the Board of Director of the company (JSH). (See A Death in the Family.)
    ZODIAC was imported to the UK in 1959 by E.A. Combs, London, and again in 1963 by E.A. Combos Clocks Ltd.
    A 1966 ad in the Los Angeles Times was for the Barrister wrist, Cal. 1305, in 14K gold, for $200.
    The company was listed in 1966 as ZODIAC SA.
    The company exhibited at Basle in 1972 with a wrist watch with a dial of the same gold texture as the bracelet.
    There was a two-page ad in Modern Jeweler, October 1972, for ZODIAC, illustrating the SST Astographic which had no hands; instead, two revolving satellites and a red moon indicated the time. SST meant "Split Second Timing. The watch was an automatic and calendar, shock and water-resist. The ad said "Americans best selling underwater watch…..Astographic introduced one year ago….no hands styling….talking display box." This watch was imported to the US in 1972 by Edward Trauner Inc. "largest importer of chronographs."
    There was an ad in 1973 for the SST Astographic.
    The company was listed in 1973 with a battery-operated watch and Tidy.
    In 1974 AH&J illustrated ZODIAC’s new diving watch, the Super Sea Wolf, pressurized to 2500 feet, with a bezel for elapsed time read-outs. In 1974 the company also introduced an LCD and new models, slim wrist watches in yellow gold, the man’s a self wind.
    The company was listed in 1975 with Rotomatic and six new calibers.
    In 1979 MONTRES ZODIAC SA was listed as part of the GROUPE DIXIMECHANIQUE .
    Fried said in 1984 that ZODIAC-CALAME CO. owned the Guardsman label making Time Recorders, and that movements for them were made by the RECTA WATCH CO.
    In 1990 the address of the ZODIAC-CALAME COMPANY was care of PAUL BUHRE in Le Locle but the ZODIAC WATCH COMPANY was still in New York. In the 1990’s ZODIAC watches were being produced by ZODIAC SA in Neuchatel.
    A watch was placed in the Arthur Collection at the NAWCC Museum marked "Ariste Calame."
    Erhardt & Planes showed six Clebar wrist watches, all from ca 1957: five chronographs with radium silvered dials, subsidiary seconds, 17 jewels, in round stainless steel cases, one with 30 minute and 12 hour recorded, two waterproof, two with outer tachometer ring, one a calendar with day and month windows and outer date ring, one a moonphase calendar with day and month windows with outer date ring; and an alarm waterproof with radium silvered dial, alarm hand, center seconds, 17 jewels, in a round case, steel or 10K gold-filled.

    BRIEF HISTORY OF BUCHERER WATCHES
    The Carl F. Bucherer brand stands for uncompromising quality as well as highly beautiful and stylish products. It combines the best in watch making craftsmanship with fine jewelry-making skills, yet the watches are created for unique and luxury people who value their time, for independent individuals, for those who make their life on their own.
    The Company's background does not refer to the small watch workshop and not to the reputation of the best watchmaker in the county. Carl F. Bucherer and his wife Luiza a priori considered trade of watches as the art work building and selling a luxury life to their customers. Unlike the majority of Swiss companies who would invite their customers to their factories and demonstrate the assembly of their products, Carl F. Bucherer had his customers in his shop where he exhibited the ready models of watches at the best angles to customers to adore and realize that the items were exclusively made for the sake of each of them. That time Carl F. Bucherer did not manufacture watches of his own, he was just able to trade with them perfectly.
    Bucherer watch story started in 1888 when a businessman in Flankenplatz, in the resort city Lucerne, at the Lake of Four Cantons in Switzerland, opened his first Watch And Jewelry Store along with his wife Luise. The place was not chosen out of the blue, since Lucerne was one of the most superb and fashionable places in Switzerland gathering the richest tourists in one place. In a while, Bucherer won Switzerland when he opened boutiques in several up-to-the-minute and popular resorts, like Lugano, St. Moritz and Interlaken. In 1915 Bucherer store was opened in Unter den Linden, the central street in Berlin where the luxury and stylish timepieces were in great demand.
    Almost in the same period Carl Eduard and Ernst, Bucherer's sons, joined the father. Apart from the real commercial intuition inherited from their father, Ernst was a perfect watchmaker and his talent was officially recognized when he was employed as the official watch maker to William II, Kaiser of Germany. And it was him who created the first timepiece Bucherer branded. Though it was not a watch but a fine and luxury item, this exact model won popularity thanks to women models styled Art Deco.
    Carl F. Bucherer brand growth is compared with that of Tiffany & Co., which grew to the reputed manufacturer from the small boutique, and in a while turned into the symbol of the American Jewelry Art. So Bucherer House is the national pride for Swiss people as well as Tiffany & Co. for Americans and Maubousin for the French nation. This company was in the top three companies next to Rolex and Omega which stayed required and reputed and continued manufacturing mechanical timepieces and magnificent watches during the crisis of mechanical watches. On the top of it, few people know about close relations between Ernst Bucherer and Hans Wilsdorf. And less know that the latter is the founder of Rolex, the watch industry. Though unlike Bucherer his name is not in the history tables.
    Currently the Bucherer Company is guided by Jörg Bucherer, the grandson of the legendary grandfather. The last achievement of the company is the exclusive model by Carl F. Bucherer to honor the grandfather which includes three collections differing in style and performance. One of them is Pathos, delicate and graceful women wear line. Another one Archimedes, solid and stylish at the same time. And the third one, Patravi, is one of the trendiest hits of the season that matched unique designer watches with multifunctional mechanisms. Each one is exclusive and creative but all of them are luxury, chic and superior. Leaving alone stylish round watches of 40 mm in diameter equipped with all possible functions from Patravi that were much liked by both men and no less confident women. According to Bucherer policy, everyone is worth success and luxury life.
