What does your warranty include?

If the watch exhibits a defect in workmanship or material that is not a major failure, Citizen will, at its option, either regulate, adjust, repair, or replace the movement, as necessary within a reasonable time after the watch is returned during the warranty period.
We recommend a Citizen Watch in need of service be taken to a CITIZEN authorised service centre. Any damage caused by repairs or alterations by unauthorised technicians may void your warranty.

Non-warranty repairs

For watches sent in outside of the warranty period, Citizen will provide a written quotation for the repair job. Upon acceptance of the final quotation, Citizen will commence the repair process with the aim of completing the repair as soon as possible, but is contingent on parts availability.
