Citizen is one of the best watch companies to come out of Japan, and is one of the most popular watch companies in the world. From the Eco-Drive to the Promaster, these watches have been iconic adornments on the wrists of many for decades. But after so long putting out great timepieces, there are a lot to choose from. Of course, like we always do, we have put together a list of the best Citizen watches you can pick up right now.

Why is Citizen the right choice?

There are dozens of watch brands in the world, and even in Japan. But if you are looking for the perfect combination between luxury and affordability, few can do it as well as Citizen. From their iconic models in mechanical selections, to the newest and best smartwatch, Citizen doesn't just hit a home run with their best brands, but they rarely miss.

When you have been around as long as Citizen has, you tend to land a few icons a long the way. One of those icons in the 1973 Bullhead. If you are doing the calculations, you have worked out that this is the 50th anniversary of this watch and the folks over at Citizen are not ones to let a good milestone go uncelebrated. This 50th anniversary special edition is perfect for a sleek vintage look and feel with an updated functionality.

One extra selling point is that the original watch this one is based on added to Brad Pitt's cool factor in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Citizen Promaster Aqualand

Once upon a time, dive watches were for, well, diving. But over the years, their robust builds and precision movements migrated from the water onto land, and guys like Tom Selleck in Magnum, P.I. up to the current President of the United States, Joe Biden, all wore them far from the beach. And so, for the refined gentleman, there are few better gifts than the Citizen Promaster Aqualand dive watch.

In addition to reaching down as far as 200 meters, its steel case and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protect a chronograph movement, depth display to 50 meters, auto start dive mode, and maximum depth memory. It's lashed to the wrist via a wet-or-dry polyurethane. Oh, and one other thing: Since it runs on light — literally any light — you'll never need to replace its battery. That's as brilliant an idea as its illuminated hands.

Tsuyosa Automatic Collection

This watch is about classic style and basic, minimalistic looks. But it also offers a bit of self expression by being made available in five different colors, blue, yellow, green, turquoise, and black. It shot to stardom last year and the striking colors are perfect for the man who only ever dresses one way.

If you're a guy who can't keep your foot off the gas, your watch should be one of the classic racing variety. While many watches include a chronograph function, few execute this classic style better than the Citizen Promaster MX. Designers began with the look of a racing glove, sourcing a perforated leather folded over and double-stitched for its band to give it a feeling of the race track.

The tachymeter scale around its bezel is both cool-looking and accurate to the archetype, assisting its chronograph function, which measures 99.9 records for sprints and up to 59 minutes for endurance events. To the naked eye, this may look like a faithful execution of a classic, but Citizen snuck in a few modern features you're sure to enjoy, including a dual time function and an alarm. You can almost smell the burning rubber from this one.

Smart watches may not have killed the old technology the way smartphones did, but they are becoming more and more prominent in the industry. Citizen's CZ Sport watch is one of the best smart watches on the market, so good that it landed Tony Hawk as its spokesman.

HEYDUDE shoes are super comfortable
Comfort is a core part of the HEYDUDE ethos, and all their shoes are focused on providing plenty of support and comfort, no matter how far you’re walking or how hot it is. Features like mesh uppers and foam insoles all add to the experience, so you get plenty of comfort, along with breathability. After all, a comfy foot isn’t comfortable when it’s hot and sweaty, so it’s a smart move by HEYDUDE to prioritize comfort, no matter what the conditions.
HEYDUDE has the best collabs
One of the interesting things that HEYDUDE offers is their limited edition collaborations with various brands and specialty artists. One fan favorite is the Mossy Oak Country DNA collection, which combines Mossy Oak’s legendary camo print with HEYDUDE comfort for the whole family. With boots for those braving the great outdoors or slip-on styles for everyday wear around town, there’s a comfortable, foot-hugging style for all. Another exciting callout is their recently introduced Collegiate Collection, launching September 19th. Now, you can show off your school spirit in the best of ways with a head-to-toe look featuring a pair of specialty HEYDUDE shoes. While these unique collections aren’t eligible for promotions, they’re worth the splurge, especially if you want to rep your favorite school or blend in with the foliage.
Because you hate complicated lacing systems
No one likes to spend ages lacing up shoes. It’s inconvenient, takes a while, and can even fray the laces themselves (or your hands!). We won’t delve into how much of your life could involve lacing up shoes. Instead, we’re delighted to see that HEYDUDE shoes get rid of those issues. Their shoes have an easy-on lace system, so you can simply pull them onto your feet without any hassle. It’s so much easier than lacing, and it looks pretty good too.
They’re affordable
Usually, ultra-comfy shoes that look great tend to cost a small fortune, but that’s not the case with HEYDUDE. The company offers tremendous value, even when there isn’t a sale taking place. With styles available starting at $40 and many pairs only costing just $65, this is an impressive value for shoes that are built to last. Even the most expensive shoes at HEYDUDE are affordable - their Branson Boot Craft Leather boot is made from leather and still offers everyone’s favorite easy slip-on/off system at an amazing price. Boots that can be worn at work or on the town for just under $100? You can’t beat HEYDUDE’s value.
There are so many styles to choose from
There are a lot of different styles at HEYDUDE. For instance, the Wally Patriotic offers an American flag design that could look perfect for the 4th of July, Labor Day, or American celebrations. There’s also the off-white patriotic design, which is a bit more subtle. Away from that, there’s the Wally Stretch range, which suits every outfit, or you could always go for a camouflage design if it matches your aesthetic. That’s even before delving into the many boot designs or the Sirocco range, which closely resembles a pair of sneakers.
Your feet are going to love you for it
You’ve only got one pair of feet, and they need to last you a long lifetime. That means it’s vital you have the right footwear to facilitate that and avoid joint issues or simple aches and pains. Alongside that, what you wear on your feet can affect your hips and knees, and who wants to need surgery for any of those joints, right? The level of comfort that HEYDUDE brings is sure to give you a fighting chance. While none of us are guaranteed to be ache-free in our old age, it’s still a smart move to do what you can to keep you a little safer. On a basic level, life is way more fun when you can walk around without your shoes rubbing or hurting your feet. That’s the biggest reason of all why HEYDUDE is so irresistible, with its range of different shoes crafted for wherever your feet may take you.
