We founded the Telstar watch brand in 1975, originally selling LED electronic watches on the Irish market. With technological changes over the years since then, the product range has grown to include quartz watches of all descriptions- children's watches, digitals, ladies & gents' classic and fashion analogue models, and matching watch and jewellery sets. One thing which has not changed is our focus on quality and value, as evidenced by our 5-year guarantee.
Telstar watches are sold online and through an extensive network of retail jewellers in Ireland.
Telstar is also available in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, where the brand has built up a strong reputation since the early 1990s. For information on the product range in these countries, please see hodinkytelstar.cz and hodinkytelstar.sk.
Solatrex has been the distributor of Citizen watches in Ireland since 1984. Today, Citizen enjoys prominence as the leading mid-price watch brand in the country. Citizen is available for sale at leading jewellers around Ireland, where our window displays hold prime position.
Citizen's proprietary Eco-Drive technology has enabled the company to establish dominance of the light-powered watch market. Celebrating 40 years in 2016, Eco-Drive watches are powered by any light and never need a battery change. The vast majority of Citizen watches sold in Ireland today feature this technology.
Extensive multi-platform marketing campaigns are focussed on sell-through and have established strong consumer brand identification for Citizen, in keeping with the global image of the world's largest watchmaker.
