Citizen Watch Gets New York “Riding For Light”, Shows Off Solar Watch
Today, April 20th, Citizen Watch staged an event in New York City in front of the Flatiron building. The purpose of this event was both a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the company, as well as supporting Habitat for Humanity NYC.
At the event, attendees signed up for a cycle class that circled a globe that lit up as the class went on, symbolizing the help the event is bringing the world, as for every class completed Citizen donated $1,000 to Habitat for Humanity NYC.
Citizen released this statement on why they are staging this event with Habitat for Humanity:
“We’re proud to support their mission to brighten up lives by building energy-efficient, affordable homes for families in need. This non-profit developer builds, renovates and repairs homes across all five boroughs- and they contribute a portion of funds raised to support Habitat projects around the globe in countries like Haiti, Nicaragua, Cambodia and Nepal. Citizen will be donating to Habitat for Humanity NYC to support their mission to build homes around the area.”
Also at the show Citizen were showing off a new range of Men’s and Women’s solar powered watches. The watches are better for the environment, but are still classy and sleek. Something you wouldn’t feel bad wearing to the Farmer’s Market or to a Fashion Show.
