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.

Do not buy this watch because of it good looks, do not buy it because it is very rugged, do not buy it because it works so well and is so accurate. But buy it for all of those things, plus never worry about changing a battery date or time again.

I have had my for 2 years now, and its worn each and every day and it still looks as new as the day it was brought. It is so very good.

I bought this watch after my old eco drive watch stopped working serving non stop for 9 years. I love this watch. The radio controlled timekeeping is amazing. works fine and looks gorgeous.

This watch fulfills all demands I had. It looks teriffic (the dark blue glance needs direct exposure to the sunlight, to really be effective), and all promised functions operate well. If there was only one thing to mention furthermore - pulling out the crown is often required to change or set a mode - and this fumbling around just seems a bit tricky while wearing the watch on the wrist. But that doesnt really affect my rating of 5 stars. Even more, this Blue Angels is imho the only Citizen Skyhawk with a well recognizable display, due to yellow (and not orange oder red) characters on its dark blue face. perfect...

Have had one of these for 3 months. The weight might come as a bit of a shock, but once on the wrist you don't seem to notice it. Time is very clear, but digital displays very small, so difficult to read. Small 24 clock is supurfluous. when I went to mainland Europe I expected it to change, but unless you study it & have a very good memory, you have to reset & need the instructions to know how to do this, which are on a CD. To summarise, the idea of a watch that is always dead accurate & never needs a battery is very special. My last Citizen was still running after 23 years & still is. I wore it swimming, steam room & sauna, 3 times a week, for most of that time, so this one should see me out, no problem!
