Our 2018 event wouldn't have been the same without our incredible sponsors.

Citizen Watches

CITIZEN return as our sponsors for the 2018 Three Minute Thesis competition.

Citizen's beginnings go back to 1924, when its forerunner, the Shokosha Watch Research Watch Institute produced its first pocket watch the CITIZEN. The then Mayor of Tokyo, Mr Shimpei Goto, named the watch CITIZEN with the hope that the watch, a luxury item of those times, would become widely available to ordinary citizens and be sold throughout the world.
