Watches News by Citizen Watch Company of America, Inc. : To celebrate Citizen's 25th Anniversary as the Official Timekeeper of the US Open as well as their latest partnership with tennis icon, Billie Jean King, the brand is pleased to announce two commemorative timepieces.

Citizen's partnership with King, announced earlier this month, comes as a natural one, as Citizen looks to highlight its longstanding relationship with the US Open as well as their strong passion for engaging generations to become more involved in the movement towards an equal and more motivated society. The two Special Edition timepieces utilize the brand's patented Eco-Drive technology, reinforcing the dedication to environmentally friendly timepieces with light-powered capabilities.

The Citizen PRT 25th Anniversary US Open Commemorative Edition Watch features a dark navy blue dial with stainless steel case and bracelet, complete with the official US Open logo. Limited to 1,100 pieces globally, the timepiece will retail for $250.

Designed with the active woman in mind, the Special Edition Billie Jean King Commemorative watch is skillfully crafted to be the perfect fit for any lifestyle and those who share the drive behind Citizen and Billie Jean King's shared initiatives. The watch features a 36 mm stainless steel case on a charming white vegan leather strap. With an elegant mother of pearl dial the novelty is finished with the signature of Billie Jean King displayed on the caseback. Available for $225, the retail purchase of this timepiece will directly support the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative.

"We are honored to mark 25 years as the Official Timekeeper of the US Open and excited for our latest partnership with tennis icon and social activist, Billie Jean King," says Ellen Seckler, EVP Marketing, Citizen Watch Company. "These commemorative timepieces not only celebrate the special relationship Citizen has with both partners, but through the use of our Eco-Drive technology, showcase our continued efforts to encourage a more socially conscious population to better the environment."

Both watches will be sold at the US Open grounds in the official USTA onsite stores, the Citizen onsite booth,, and in the Citizen Times Square Boutique.
