Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

A great gift for your favorite globetrotter, the silver-tone Citizen Men's Eco-Drive 180 World Timer stainless steel watch enables the wearer to keep track of a second time zone or GMT world time via the 24-hour time hand. This large, silver watch case is topped by a thin bezel, which provides a large black dial face. It includes a full Arabic numeral display, luminous-tipped skeleton hands (with seconds hand in addition to red 24-hour hand), and a date window at 3 o'clock.

This watch is powered by Citizen's unique Eco-Drive, which absorbs sunlight and any artificial light through the crystal and dial to recharge the watch continuously. With regular exposure to light, the Eco-Drive continuously recharges itself for a lifetime of use. This watch's Eco-Drive provides a 180-day power reserve. It's completed by a comfortable canvas strap, and also features a scratch resistant mineral crystal and water resistance to 100 metres (330 feet)--suitable for water-related activities and sports such as swimming and snorkeling.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great watch! 13 Sep 2010
Simple and lovely timepiece, superb CITIZEN quality and best of all: no batteries or winding required! Why doesn't every manufacturer use the Eco-Drive system? Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars World timer watch 27 Jun 2010
I've had this watch for about 10 weeks now and I like it a lot. The description of a"world timer watch"is not strictly accurate in my opinion as the watch gives you the opportunity to read the time in 2 time zones only as the watch effectivly comes with 2 hour hands as well as the usual minute & second hand.Normally such watches come with a rotating bezel and this watch does not.
The watch took a long time to charge and after following the instructions on charging it was still not working correctly 8 days after I started to use it. I phoned the Citizen advice line and they gave me further instructions (which were not in the manual)and since then it has worked very well.
The watch is accurate, clear to read (even with 4 hands)and not to big a diameter (a common problem with watches today). Although my family live overseas, I did not buy it for the 2nd time zone (although that is useful), I bought it because I liked the look of the watch,I wanted a canvas strap and this one is very good,and for the price of 91 with a 5 year guarantee and no batteries to change or springs to wind, I thought it good value for money. So far I have not been dissapointed!
If I knew 10 weeks ago what I know now, would I still buy the watch for 91? My answer would be yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very nice 12/24 hour watch 21 Jun 2010
A nice and simple 12/24 hour watch or dual timezone if one prefer that, a clean watch without tachymeter and other functions one rarely if ever use. The product image does not do the watch justice as it is a good looking watch. In bright light the dial face show its 2 "gray" rings, in normal indoor lighting the dial face is black and white.

The big 24 hour hand is a rare find, other watches I've looked that had a 24 hour hand were small and hard to read.

I don't like the nylon band but that is easy replaced with a better band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Watch! 16 Mar 2011
Very clear, easy to read, dial.

Accuracy is excellent. Mine gains just 2 or 3 seconds a month.
The second hand lines up with the markers all around the dial.

The orange GMT hand can be just used as a 24 hour indicator.
The hour hand can be set independently of the GMT hand, if you so desire, without stopping the watch... This is great for crossing time-zones when travelling, as your watch will then show local-time on the main hands and your home-time on the GMT hand.
If you are out in the wilderness the GMT hand can also be used as a basic compass. Point the hour hand to the sun, and the GMT hand points North.

The lugs on this watch are a standard 20mm, so replacing the stock strap with a leather, Nato, or steel bracelet, is quick and simple.

It has the other usual Citizen features.
Eco-Drive (solar powered)... so no more batteries.
Flat, scratch resistant, anti-reflective crystal.
Water resistance to 100m
Screw-on back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Citizen of the World 14 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
I wanted a watch that was waterproof, relatively inexpensive, and have the facility to monitor two time zones in an easily readable dial.

This watch fitted the bill admirably on all counts. It can by no means be described as a dress watch, but it is functional and fit for purpose.

The timekeeping is good, but the luminosity of the dial is not all that great - but if you want to check the time during the hours of darkness - it would be wise to get a torch!

The only fly in the ointment is the small window for the date function - this apart I'm pleased with the watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice watch 10 Mar 2011
I've had this watch for four months now and it is my day to day watch. I bought it because I like the ability to reset the time zone without changing the time. I really like it's uncluttered lines and looks. Took a while to get full charge as the weather was dull and raining but since then is not an issue. It was left in a drawer for 10 days and was still working at full charge. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Citizen Rule 7 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
I've owned several Citizen watches and have never had any problems with any of them. This watch does exactly what I bought it for and lets me monitor 2 different time zones. My first eco drive watch but certainly not my last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful bit of kit 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
This watch caught my eye for a couple of reasons: one, I favour either automatic or solar powered watches (and as far as I can figure it out the much vaunted eco-drive is essentially solar anyway) to avoid the issue of having to replace batteries and lose the factory seal. And two: my work involves a lot of travel and crossing of time zones, so the GMT/24hr clock function is an extremely useful reference point.

Out of the box, the watch had at least some charge in it so there was no concern about leaving it under a light to charge up. I've worn it almost all the time since getting it and I guess it's been charging all the time it's exposed to sunlight/artificial light. The instructions - although there are very few actual functions! - were not terribly clear, but it's simple enough to work out: crown out to the first stop, turn clockwise to move the hour hand and anti-clockwise for the date. Crown out all the way to change the 24hr pointer. It took a few goes to make sure the date was not changing at midday, but all's well now!

The look of the watch is very eye-catching. A simple dial with that added interest of the inner 24hr dial. The date window is small, but readable and in keeping with the overall design of the watch the hands are quite spartan suiting the overall simple, no nonsense layout.

On the downside: on the watch I received the second hand is very slightly offset from the markings from the thirty second to sixty second side. Not enough to bother me really - I wouldn't be using the watch for anything more precision timed than a boiled egg anyway.
