Manufacturer's Description

About Citizen

The company was established in 1924. The founding fathers selected the name Citizen so it would be "Close to the Hearts of People Everywhere" and soon after adopted the company’s formal name, Citizen Watch Company.

During the last 75 years Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and has achieved recognition as the global brand. The past 25 year period has coincided with the company’s dramatic rise to its current position as one of the largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held every year since 1986.

Beyond sheer size, Citizen is also recognised as a worldwide leader in enhanced technology. From one of the slimmest LCD watch to the first voice recognition watch and the world’s first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor, Citizen’s record of "world’s firsts" is unmatched.

More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in Ecologically Friendly timekeeping with its Eco-Drives watches that are light powered. With models ranging from dress models to sports models to professional dive watches, Citizen Eco-Drive runs continuously in any kind of natural or artificial light for a lifetime of use. Fueled by light, it never needs a battery.

Eco-Drive Frequently Asked Questions (See the full Citizen Eco-Drive FAQ here)

How can you tell if the Eco-Drive watch is getting enough light?
In normal use, the watch displays the time and the sweep-second hand moves in one second intervals. A very important feature of Eco-Drive is the Low Charge Warning Mode which as a result of low battery voltage, causes the second hand to jump two seconds at a time (while still keeping correct time).

How long will an Eco-Drive watch run after it is fully charged?
If your watch is put away where no light is available to it while in a fully charged state, depending on the model, it will run for from 45 days to 5 years.

How can the Eco-Drive watch be recharged?
Besides sunlight, it can be safely charged by exposing it to a fluorescent desk lamp, with the dial (face) up and within about 8 inches or an incandescent lamp (regular light bulb) no closer than 20 inches. Never use a halogen lamp since the heat generated by it can cause damage to your watch. The most efficient and the quickest is in direct bright sunlight (not windowsill) and never on the dashboard of a car.

Very happy with my purchase. It looks just as it does in the pictures and looks great on the wrist.

I also own a Tissot PRC200 which is completely opposite. That is a chronograph and very bling in comparison with its shiny stainless bracelet.
For that reason I really wanted something more understated but it still had to look different and be stylish. This watch completely fits the bill.
The face is slightly larger than the average watch and with the orange numerals it really stands out and looks nice.
At the same time the PVD coated stainless steel watch casing looks lovely being matt as opposed to being shiny black.
The orange numerals are the same colour as on the Amazon picture. Don't expect bright garish looking orange, it's more a subtle orange which I think I actually prefer.

The strap is better than I thought it would be having read a lot of reviews.
It's 5mm at the case tapering to 3mm at the ends. It's a nice looking strap and the colour suits the watch perfectly.
When you first take it out the box it is stiff however running your thumb over it and flexing it a little soon softens it up so with some wear it should become nice and supple quickly.
I had read on a review somewhere that the buckle is plastic. This is not true. The black buckle is actually PVD coated steel like the watch case.

This is my first eco-drive but comes highly recommended. Someone in my family also owns one and it is still working great after daily wear for a few years.
Overall I'm very happy, a nice looking watch which is stylish enough to wear with a nice shirt but looks just as good with something more casual.

Had this watch for a while now and im pleased with it,many friends have said how cool it looks.Holds perfect time,i leave it on the coffee table one day a week to keep charge full.I own two Citizen watches and im very happy with them.In my veiw Eco-Drive and Kinetic watches are the future,why pay for new batteries that also harm the planet and can mess up the water resistant seal,Automatics need constant winding and good ones cost hundreds.

Just received my new Citizen BM8475-26E this afternoon, just three days from order from Amazon. This is my first Citizen watch and I am most impressed, generally the watch is as the description and the photographs and looks and feels great on the wrist. As stated in other reviews the strap is certainly not for large wrists, fortunately fits me just fine. I am a watch collector and now have my 33rd watch, and yes I do wear them all, though not at once.

Great looking watch, well made. Illumination when charged works well, which is green. Hands do glow brighter than the numbers which is a very good feature. Strap is VERY cheap and will be replaced very soon 'watchworx' which why 4 stars. Amazon delivery better than what I paid for.

A beautiful time piece equally modern with colours and style but something classic about just having a watch that tell the time and date and nothing else to it.

The eco drive works well and I just leave it near the window when I'm at home or leave it under the lamp when I'm working.

The watch is big but that is a personal choice. The price is great and the delivery was quick.

Other reviews have said the strap is stiff, true but I am sure it will soften after time. The strap is decent and I do not think it looks cheap.

Highly recommended!

We bought this for our Son's 18th & he loves it.
He'd had his eye on my Citizen Eco-drive for years so we knew it was a good choice.
I've had my divers Citizen Eco-drive for over 6 years now & it's still dropping no more than a second between GMT & BST time changes.
Solar is the only way forward as a professional battery change that guarantees the water-proof seal costs over £50. Factor this in when buying a quality watch & I'm sure you'll buy a solar powered watch too - I'll certainly never buy a traditional battery powered watch again.

I bought this watch and I tell you every time I wear it with anything smart, casual or sports cloth it match. also people keep asking me where did you bought this watch it looks cool and sexy I strongly recommended it.

AFTER 5 MONTH. been using it now more than 5month and I tell you the fram, the watch mirror every thing looks so good and clean the only thing is am a bad user the leather strap kinda get dirts around it. It easy can be changed and replaced by new strap so far so good the watch is really reliable.

the dark glowing is not that bright as the seiko kinetic movements watches but if you leave it in the sun for 30min-1hour the watch glow so high in the dark so yeah over all its really cool watch I love it.
