Usually this happens if the watch capacitor (same like battery with the only difference to store energy converted from light) is faulty and can't recharge itself to the needed voltage.
I would not recommend to try to do anything to the watch without aproppriate knowledge as Eco-Drive watches are quite complicated.
The best solution-- Find out your nearest watch repair shop and ask for a new capacitor replacement. Do not panic yet as this is no big deal and can be done quite quickly.
Of course, there can be something else wrong with the watch, but I hope this is capacitor as this usually is the most common with new Eco-Drives.

Hello there.

As you can see in the picture, it takes some time to charge the watch up 100%. If you are charging the watch indoors, then it will take 126 hours. The best thing to do would be leave it in sunlight for up to 6hours and the charge should come back fine.

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!

Your watch capacitor is unable to recharge to the needed voltage. Try to put in on window sill in sunlight or under the bright lamp and leave it for a few days.
If it will not restart after doing thet, you will need to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for capacitor replacement.

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.
