Eco-Drive: The Watch that Never Needs a Battery
Powered by Light
Eco-Drive is designed to convert both natural and artificial light into energy to power watches. This means that you do not require any battery replacement, charging or winding to maintain constant operation.
Easy to Charge
No matter the quality of the light, Eco-Drive watches can charge from any natural or artificial light-source. This means that even in dim light your watch will keep on charging, making Eco-Drive practical and easy to use.
Keeps Running in the Dark
Featuring a lithium-ion cell which stores energy converted from light within the watch. Complete with low energy warning and power save mode, when fully charged Eco-Drive watches can run for up to 7 years even in the dark.
Kind to the Planet
Eco-Drive watches never need a battery change, which can leach chemicals and pollute landfills. Since 1976, Citizen has kept an estimated over 75 million batteries out of landfill sites. Over 96% of Citizen’s range has our award winning Eco-Drive technology.

This is a fine watch - elegant appearance, apparently well made, keeps perfect time and is excellent value for money. The most serious negative reviews appear to be due to either not reading, or not understanding, the instructions, which are not very good. Surely Citizen could get a watchmaker, an artist and an English graduate to sit down for an hour together and prepare a clearly understandable, accurate description of how to set the watch. Or put a video on youtube (oh, I may be an old fart, but I'm with it !!)
He who complained about the days being in "Spanish" apparently did not notice that as the crown wheel is rotated to set the days, as instructed, they appear in English, German and French, in fixed sequence. Therefore if you first set it in English, subsequent automatic changes are always in English. (I managed to get it wrong however - I set it on Mon, assuming Monday, but in fact it was Montag! Somewhat puzzled when days in German subsequently appeared, but soon figured out and reset correctly).
He who complained of a fiddly crown wheel would also have been better served by clear instructions. Holding the watch between thumb and forefinger of both hands, face up, with the crown wheel on the right, the crown wheel can be easily pulled out to first or second "click", under full control, by slipping the side of the nail of the index finger just between the crown wheel and the case. I don't think using teeth on it is a good idea, neither for the watch nor for one's teeth!
The strap is certainly not cheap. It is thick real leather, the parts very solidly put together, but it is rather stiff. Frankly, not to my taste - I prefer a smooth leather - but that is only personal preference and I shall soon be changing mine
for a soft black suede strap.
I'm well pleased with the watch. It looks fine, works perfectly, keeps time to the second over more than a week and I am looking forward to many years of batteryless, non-winding, accurate timekeeping. I have an idea it will see me out.
P.S. Nearly a year later and everything is still working as it should. There are some better instructions on the internet - I would recommend you observe the instructions about when to set or re-set the time/date. I get compliments on how well it looks. The only negative experience is that the time/date is difficult to read in sunshine - the top of the aperture casts a deep shadow over the letters/digits which are deep set under the dial. I doubt I will ever buy another watch!
This watch looks ok but the strap is dreadful. It looks and feels like cheap stiff plastic. It's a real shame that Citizen supply a nice watch with such an inferior strap. I did give it a go but the look and feel of the strap is just so bad. Yes I could have bought a better strap to put on it but I really shouldn't have to do that with what is supposed to be a quality watch.
Returned for a refund - I never thought I'd say that with regard to a Citizen watch.
