Citizen to Become Official Timepiece of
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort


(September 25, 2018) - Citizen and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort (HKDL) today announced that Citizen will be the Official Timepiece of the resort.

With this new relationship, Citizen becomes a notable element in this world-class Disney vacation destination and the resort becomes associated with a globally recognized name in precision timekeeping.

As part of the long-term promotional alliance, the Citizen logo will be displayed on selected timepieces throughout HKDL. Additionally, Citizen will be featured as the presenting sponsor of the Times Guide, which shares the schedule of daily events and entertainment throughout HKDL.

“Hong Kong Disneyland is looking forward to an alliance with Citizen, a pioneer in watchmaking,” said Samuel Lau, Managing Director of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. “Citizen shares Disney’s passions for innovation and creativity, making it the perfect brand to share with our guests.”

This global expansion of the Citizen and Disney alliance follows a recent announcement where Citizen was named the Official Timepiece of Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California and Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. That agreement also provides Citizen with worldwide music licensing opportunities from Disney Music Group, sponsorship of the Disney On Classic concert series in Japan and for 2018, sponsorship of Marvel Minute and other digital content on Marvel.com that is in development at Marvel New Media’s Creative Space.

“Citizen and Disney are world renowned brands that each create magic through dedication to detail and quality,” said Toshio Tokura, President and Chief Executive Officer of Citizen Watch Co Ltd. “A global alliance between these two time-tested companies makes all the sense in the world.”
