I learned how to read time when I was in Grade 2, the same year I got my first watch. On my eighth birthday, my mother bought me a Citizen analogue watch with a black leather strap. The dial was in Hindu-Arabic numerals which made it easier for me to read. Over the years, I've had quite a few watches, most of them gifts from friends and relatives, but I still keep my very first watch which is still in good working condition. My mother made a very wise choice when she bought me the watch. She must know that citizen watches are one of the best in the industry. After all these years, it remains a trusted and leading name in watches.
