You need to expose this watch to sunlight for about 8 hours to let it recharge it's solar cell. Make sure that sunlight is shining directly on the face and not just "kind of" shining on the face. I put it in a window ledge where the sun beats down to make sure it gets the most sunlight possible.

Repeat this for a few days to make sure it's fully charged.

I was given a skyhawk eco drive watch from my late fatherinlaw,its brand new but it has been in its case(box)in dark for a long time and doesn't work...how do I get it going???


An Eco drive citizen is powered by the sun. You should take the watch out in the sunlight or put under a lamp to charge it for at least 12 hours. Once it is running you need to wear it to keep it running, you should be able to take it off at night and it will continue to run once it is fully charged. if it does not hold a charge over night after being fully exposed to light for 24-48 hours you may need to send it to Citizen for service on the capacitor. thank you!

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.

How to set the time for citizen eco drive skyhawk.


Hi, This watch is Calibre C651, same as Model #JR3090-58M (Promaster Air Collection - Blue Angels Skyhawk). C651 is not available on Citizen website, but you can use Calibre C650 instructions. Download PDF manual and follow instructions on page 3. They are pretty detailed, so take your time, and you should be successful. If you don't have the manual, Try this link:
http://www.citizenwatches.com.au/instruction-manuals

Take the four-digit Calibre number (C651 or C650 in this case) from the back of the watch, enter it, and download a PDF of your watch setting-instructions/manual.
I hope this helps you. Thanks, Bill

Hi. Just purchased a Citizen Eco-Drive JR3 in black. Placed it under a lamp overnight, but the solar charge bars still haven't appeared. Is this normal? Thanks!


Try placing it in sunlight or daylight for a day and see if that makes a difference. If it is more than a 4 years only the capacitor/battery may be old and needs to be replaced. A low wattage lamp may be slow at recharging the cell.

I can't get the clock hands to correspond with the digital time.


You must set the "Zero" position for your watch. Follow the instructions at this address and your problem should be corrected.
