(VALID IN CANADA, UNITED STATES, UNITED KINGDOM, IRELAND, CARIBBEAN, AND MEXICO)
Only valid for purchases made in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Caribbean, and Mexico (“Territory”) from retailers (including Duty Free shops and Military Exchanges) authorized by Citizen Watch Company of Canada, Ltd., Citizen Watch Company of America, Inc., Citizen Watch United Kingdom, Ltd., or Citizen de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. (“Citizen”, in their respective markets), as an Authorized Retailer.
Citizen warrants this watch (except the power cell, case and its components [including crystal, stem, crown], bracelet and its components [including clasp, links, pins, screws], strap and its components or any accessories) to be free of defects in material and workmanship and to meet the timekeeping accuracy specification in the instructions for a period of five (5) years from the date of original retail purchase in the Territory from an Authorized Retailer.
The Five Year Limited Warranty will be honoured only by Service Centres in the Territory. Service Centres located in other parts of the world will only provide warranty service under the one year International Warranty.
If the watch exhibits a defect through normal use, 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: (a) if in person to the nearest Authorized Service Centre (listed in the warranty booklet and/or the www.citizenwatch.com website) or (b) by insured mail or other insured carrier to the Canadian Service Headquarters at 380 Bentley Street, Unit 2, Markham, Ontario L3R 3L2, or U.S. Service Headquarters in Torrance, CA. Citizen recommends that for faster service and for highly technical watches, you submit your watch to the Canadian Service Headquarters in Markham if you are located in Canada or the U.S. Service Headquarters in Torrance if you are located in the United States, or Mexico Service Headquarters in Mexico City if you are located in Mexico.
All transportation costs (including, but not limited to, postage, insurance and packing materials) incurred in presenting or sending the watch to the Authorized Service Centre, Canadian Service Headquarters, or U.S. Service Headquarters, or Mexico Service Headquarters are the responsibility of the party presenting or sending the timepiece for service. If sending the watch, do not include any packaging you wish returned as all shipping materials are discarded upon receipt.
As a condition to any warranty service obligation, the Warranty Certificate with all the case and serial numbers as well as the date of purchase filled in by the Authorized Retailer from whom the watch was purchased must accompany the watch when presented for warranty service. Any photocopies or original warranty certificates that appear to have been altered will not be honoured.
WHAT THE FIVE YEAR WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER
(a) Damage, accidental or otherwise, to the watch while in the possession of a consumer not caused by a defect in material or workmanship.
(b) Damage caused by accident, misuse, tampering with, or failure to follow the care and special handling provisions in the Instructions.
(c) Damage and/or scratches to the finish of the case, crystal, bracelet, strap or other components caused by wear or accident.
(d) Moisture damage to a watch not marked ‘water resistant’ on the case back or damage from moisture in ‘water resistant’ models that is a result of opening the watch, broken, or damaged components.

(f) Damage caused by repairs, or alterations, of the watch by anyone other than one of the Authorized Service Centres listed in this booklet.
ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, ARE LIMITED TO THE FIVE (5) YEAR DURATION OF THIS EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY. CITIZEN DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES AND IN NO EVENT SHALL CITIZEN’S LIABILITY EXCEED THE RETAIL VALUE OF THE WATCH FOR BREACH OF ANY WRITTEN OR IMPLIED WARRANTY WITH RESPECT TO THIS WATCH.
Some Provinces or States do not allow (a) limitations on the duration of any implied warranty and/or (b) the exclusion of limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and/or exclusions may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from Province to Province or State to State.
