Question about Citizen Eco-Drive BL006056H Wrist Watch
I am having a citizen EcoDrive wrist watch for several years now. Since last year the internal buffer byttery (Gold Cap?) runs out of power very fast. I remember it should be good for about 180 days but in winter I have to lay it directly onto a lamp every day. Placing it for several hours in a sunny window would help for 2 to 3 days. Nowadays I feel like a 'light-junkie', I am always looking for energy for my watch.
Is this normal behaviour? Could this be repaired?
Battery in your watch is called ''CAPACITOR'' and it gets charged by light. The best source, of course, is sunlight and the worst is ordinary lamp.
By placing your watch for a few hours in a sunny window should keep your watch going for about 5 - 7 days.
As this is not happening, you need to replace capacitor. After doing that your watch will keep working and charging as brand new.
Capacitor replacement is not complicated job and any decent watchmaker can do it for you.
Do not forget to rate, please.
