Citizen will choose one officer each month and honor them with a customized Thin Blue Line timepiece. These special edition watches feature the iconic thin blue line on the watch face which represents the sacrifice law enforcement officers make every day. The case back will be engraved with a personal message and the rank, name and badge of the officer. In addition, a gold card will accompany the watch with the rank, name and badge number.

The Thin Blue Line watch is a stainless steel Nighthawk Chronograph featuring a 200 meter water resistance and tachymeter scale. Powered by Eco-Drive technology the watch is light-powered and never requires a battery charge.

To thank all the brave law enforcement officers and pay tribute to their service, Citizen offers exclusive pricing to officers only. The men’s watch retails for $550 but officers are able to purchase this watch at $295 and the ladies watch which retails at $475 is available to officers at $275.
