Citizen Watch Company proudly celebrates its 24th year as the Official Timekeeper of the US Open Tennis Championships. Each year, the US Open Tennis Championships mark the season-ending Grand Slam event in men’s and women’s professional tennis—the highest profile tennis tournament of the year. And with courtside clocks and stadium scoreboards tracking time and displaying match results, CITIZEN plays in integral role at the US Open. CITIZEN time displays have recorded some of the longest Grand Slam matches in history.
In addition to its longstanding sponsorship of the US Open, CITIZEN is the official sponsor of Arthur Ashe Kid’s Day, as well as the Exclusive Timekeeper and Official Sponsor of the Emirates Airlines US Open Series—including Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati, the Connecticut Open at Yale and the Winston-Salem Open. CITIZEN will have courtside presence at all of these US-based series tournaments, along with its iconic clock on the façade of Arthur Ashe Stadium for the US Open Tennis Championships, and double-sided clocks throughout the Club and Promenade levels.
A leader in the watch industry and true manufacture d’horlogerie, Citizen pushes the boundaries of timekeeping technology. It starts with a simple, yet revolutionary, concept: a watch that never needs a battery. This year, Citizen celebrates its 40th year of Eco-Drive®, the technology that harnesses the power of light—from any natural or artificial light source—and converts it to energy which is stored in a permanently rechargeable lithium-ion cell. Citizen’s Eco-Drive® watches recharge continuously in any kind of light to run forever.
