Product Description

Product Description

Citizen Gents watch with Eco-drive technology, black dial, stainless steel case, black leather strap, mineral crystal glass, water resistant. This watch has a 180 day power reserve, charges in sunlight/indoors and will show a low charge indicator.

Manufacturer's Description

This men's Eco-Drive timepiece is powered by light, so it never needs a battery. The sleek, black timepiece will surely catch your eye with its' simple design. Features include a stainless steel case with a black leather strap.

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 seventy-five years Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and has achieved recognition as the global brand. The past twenty-five year period has coincided with the company’s dramatic rise to its current position as the world’s largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held every year since 1986.

Beyond sheer size, Citizen is also recognized as a worldwide leader in advanced technology. From the world’s 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.

I bought this watch for its looks and unobtrusive size, with the bonus of the eco-drive technology. It excels in all of these departments and has drawn several compliments despite its understated design.

This watch is simple, stylish and very classy. People keep complementing my watch. What more can i ask for? It doesn't use a battery, just the rays of the sun or any form of light keeps it working.

I bought this watch when I was in the USA in 2004, I have a slim wrist and the design of this model suited well. Since then it has performed brilliantly, keeps great time and has never stopped even though sometimes it lives in a drawer for a month. The only part that did not last was the strap (hence 4 instead of 5 stars). Mine got so wrinkled after 7 years that in the end I could not undo it easily so had to change it.

I bought this watch because it is an EcoDrive. It is light weight. It is not a scientific instrument made to operate at depths of a 1000 ft for that rare afternoon dip in the Marianna Trench. It would not jam up my shirt sleeve every time I change clothes and it would not stick out like an unseemly growth on my wrist, and it is relatively inexpensive. In other words: it is a watch ..... for telling the time. I would have preferred it in brown, but this must be Citizen's tribute to Ford Model-T. You can have any colour, as long as it is black. It arrived in record time. No complaint.

I was attracted to this watch by the fact that, not only does it look good, it has no mechanics and no replaceable battery, being powered solely by light (any light, not just sunlight). My wife loved the look of it, describing it as, "classy and beautifully elegant".

My only disappointment was to find that, in reality, the 'five minute' markers, which are clearly visible in the marketing photos, are virtually impossible to see in any light, not just dim light.

Bought for dad's birthday as he wanted a slim lightweight watch that wasn't flashy. Nice quality, simple design with the bonus that ecodrive solar cell face means dad won't have the fuss of needing to replace a battery. Good quality leather strap that looks like it will weather well. There are line marks at each hour but, apart from the quarters, they are very subtle so that, combined with small face size means may not be suitable if you struggle without reading glasses.

Bought this for a friend and he was delighted. The strap is a perfect length even though he is a big person/ Looks like ten times the cost, and it is one of the nicest eco-drives I have ever seen. Delivery was swift and packed beautifully. Needless to say I am now thinking of an eco-drive for myself too. Had bought one for my daughter a little while ago and that was wonderful, cannot recommend them enough
