Citizen’s manufacturing excellenceBeing a Citizen Photo product, users can be assured of market-leading levels of technological and engineering excellence.With 100 years of manufacturing heritage as of 2018, Citizen has a rich history in precision engineering across a variety of markets. Once such market, and perhaps the most familiar in the consumer market, is the watch division. What is less familiar to those working in the photo sector is that the same precision engineering approach that is adopted for watch design and manufacture, is also applied to the mechanics of the internal systems in Citizen Photo printers. Something that sets the brand apart from the competition with regards to reliability and quality.
