Citizen eco drive Mickey Mouse watches are keepsake wristwatches that are as popular as men's and ladies' watches as they are for children. Both Citizen with its eco drive and Mickey Mouse watches have a long history and sterling reputations.
The Citizen Watch Company began in Tokyo in 1918 as the Shokosha Watch Research Institute. Its name was changed to Citizen Watch Company in 1930. Mickey Mouse watches became part of its standard repertoire some time in the 1960's and the eco-drive that Citizens made famous was introduced in April of 1966. Citizen eco-drive wrist watches require no battery and are simply powered by light, and thus ecologically friendly.
Though discontinued, Citizen eco drive Mickey Mouse watches, whether men's or ladies, are keepsakes and collector's items and as such are available online.
