Citizen eco drive 8700

My watch has stopped. It is about 2 years old. I left it in a draw for the last 6-months (moved house). I have been wearing it today and exposing it to sunlight, but there is no life in it. Can you help please

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.
Don't forget to rate, please.

They can work only up to 6 month in the dark, maybe because of that it stops working.

Good Luck

How do you know witch setting to make on the leap year adjustment on the Citizen Calibre 8700 model. +1, +2, +3...?


On Leap Years, the function dial is to be set to '0'.
Add one for each year after...
So, for 2011, set the function dial to '3' since it has been 3 years since 2008, the last leap year. Next year it should move/be set to '0' again since 2012 is a leap year.

My watch stopped working. It's been in a jewelry box for a few months, no exposure to light. What do I do?


Eco-drive watch should work for 1 year out of light. Take it out of the drawer and place in light, and check that the pin on the side is pushed in all the way.

My Citizen caliber 8700 stopped after a long period of not wearing it. Now even under light it doesn't start. Should I keep it more under the light or it has been damaged and needs a service? Thank you in...


Since the battery in these watches relies on exposure to sunlight, then if left in the dark the battery will eventually be exhausted. This should take about 9 months but the maker says it will revive if left in sunlight

If it doesn't, then return it to the maker.

If you look at their web site http://www.citizenwatch.com/ and go to "technical support" and the "setting instructions", entering "E810" as per their example will allow you to download instructions for an ecodrive which explain the operation of charging etc.

Does the Citizen Calibre 2100 have a battery that i can change, its been in my top draw for over a year and has stopped working, i have left it in the daylight to charge but the eco drive needle is still...


Citizen EcoDrive does not have calibre 2100. This is ordinary quartz calibre and uses battery SR-626W. This battery will last for 2 - 3 years and is not rechargeable.

Restarting my Citizen Promaster Eco Divers 200 Watch


Since it's eco-drive you can just wear it for a few hours and it should self-wind. The problem is that when it sits still for more than a few days it winds down. It gets its power from the natural movement of your wrist as you walk around.

Once it starts ticking again you'll just have to set the time correctly.
