Question about Citizen Eco-Drive Silhouette EW869452D Wrist Watch

1 Answer

My Eco-Drive watch is 8 minutes fast.

The Eco-Drive Skyhawk WR100 watch is suddenly 8 minutes fast. I have owned the watch for 7 years and have had flawless performance. The digital readout on the watch shows the correct time but the hands of the watch do not. I have put the watch in a dark place for 3 days, took it out, and let it re-set itself, but still the watch is fast. Is there something I can do myself, or should I take it to my Citizen dealer?

Take it to your citizen dealer. There is probably a problem with the actual movement of the watch and unless you know how to take the watch apart and diagnose the movement then you would not be able to figure it out.

Hello I've had my citizen Eco drive skyhawk watch for at least ten years now. I remember reading in my manual years ago that a battery needed to be replaced even though it's solar powered. My watch went...


There could be other issues beside the battery. My best solution would be to take back to where you bought the watch, or any other authorized Citizen watch retailer for repair.

Watch has stopped running. Citizen eco drive B020-H21408. Can't seem to recharge.


If you have followed the manufacturers instructions on recharging, I suggest you return it to Citizen. They will get it running in no time for you.

I have a Citizen Skyhawk and this is what I did to get my watch going after I tried all the recharging instructions they provided. Go to their website and tell them what you want to do and they will give you instructions. Go here: http://www.citizenwatch.com/ Pick your country and language - select technical support (make sure you did all they told you to do first) - eventually you will find a contact link.

The trouble with mine is I have a cell telephone ... who needs a watch these days??? My wife has a eco drive - she wears it 24/7 and has not had a problem with it in more than 10 years.

I really love my Titanium Skyhawk ... It is fun to play with and beautiful to look at. I just never wear it.

I hope this helps and thanks for your visit today.

CITIZEN ECO-DRIVE SKYHAWK WATCH not working


If this watch is several year old, it could be that the power cell is defective, and won't hold a charge. I have been also told by a Citizen Tech, that they will sometimes "hangup" or lock up, and may just need a quick jolt. This doesn't happen often, but Citizen has the equipment to test and supply this jolt to sort of kick start the movement again. They would also replace the battery while it was open. You can sometimes place it into direct sunlight for 15-30 minutes, but no longer...unless you want to melt the insides...lol.

Most Geniune Citizens have a five year warranty. Keep that mind too. Thanks.

Day and date don't match


Make sure the year is correct. If the year says 2016 instead of 2010, your watch is affected with a know software issue and the watch needs to be updated. See the link below fore more info:

The watch is dead i tried to charge it and it will not turn on ..how do you reset the citizen eco-drive skyhawk


DO NOT TRY TO CHANGE THE BATTERY! There is no battery! Eco drive watches have a capacitor that is charged by light! Put it in a sunny window for a day OR set it under a cool light. Check it often to see if it starts working, if after a few hours its still not running then take it to a local watch repair business. Its possible that the capacitor is bad. They are also very difficult to set so you will need your manual if you want to attempt it on your own!

You can find your model number on the case back! We use their site often at our watch repair business!
