I have this seiko solar chronograph watch for one year and stop working, I tried to charge it with sun light with no success, any idea ?


Replace the battery, the solar part doesn't mean it charges from the sun it has to do with the movement of the arms (I'm not %100 what that means) I just know it doesn't charge by the sun or any other light source.

I have an eco drive watch for 8 years now and while it charge normally in the sun, it loses the charge (hands and graduations stop glowing) after about only 1 hour whereas before it would stay charged for...


yes , though the battery is charged by solar cell it does need to be replaced after awhile. So you can get the battery replaced, if it is the battery .

If its not the battery than the solar cell capacitor can also be replaced.

This should be checked out by a professional watch maker they can test the battery and the charger for you for free.

Wath stopped


Eco-Drive powered watches can be finicky. They need a LOT of sun to initially charge the power cell, and then some strong light each day to maintain them charged. Put the watch in the window for a few days to see if it comes to life, if it does not the power cell may need replacement. Some of the earlier Eco-Drives used a capacitor that does not like to be run down from not being exposed to enough light, and will fail sooner than the newer power cells.

It means that the reserve power is getting low and the energy cell needs to be fully recharged by exposing it to light for a period of time outlined in your owner's manual. This may also occur after fully recharging your watch after a complete discharge of the energy cell. If you have fully charged your watch and the second hand continues to move in two second intervals, you need to do an all reset of the watch. For simple analog models, pull the crown out to the time setting position for 30 seconds, then return the crown to the closed position next to the case, then set the time. For multi-function models, please refer to your owners manual.

Left my decade eco watch in draw and forgot how to recharge in sun and cant find my manual


Your watch should recharge by itself just sitting in the sun(4 hours) or near a lamp(12 hours). Don't place it so close to the lamp or on the dash of your car as the heat can damage your watch. Once charged it should run for weeks to months depending on which model watch you have. If it doesn't keep a charge for long it may need a new capacitor which runs $50 to $75. That is rare however. Charge it up and set it. Good luck, Michael

Can't get new eco drive watch to start!


The Citizen Eco Drive watches use special recharchable batteries.
I started collecting a couple of watches and I noticed sometimes a jeweler replaces them with an ordinary battery. The watch will work and at the same time it will try to recharge this one until it explodes! In newer models they made it harder to use the non-rechargable ones by adding a special connector or clip to the rechargable battery types.
Okay, if you say your battery goes bad, or the watch does not run? It may have lost the charge over time. First thing to try is to leave it on the window sill so the dial is in the sun. It will start ticking, but please leave it out there for 3 days to a week. The seconds hand will tick irregularly in steps of one and two seconds, to show you it wants you to readjust the time, as it knows it has lost time. Adjust the time and it should run smoothly.
The seconds hand should run in single second steps, if it takes steps regularly, but every 3 seconds or so, it tries to tell you that its power level is going down. It will be able to continue for one or two days, but you should get it into the sun more often.
Charging the battery under a lamp is possible, however this heats up the watch and this may reduce battery life.
If you need to know more about the Eco Drive, look for detail tech manuals for all types here: http://www.citizenwatch.com/downloads/tech/tech.htm
Those are great watches as long as you remember it needs light to charge.

A "non" fully charged watch will sometimes "jump" seconds rather than indicate one second intervals. Charging these small solar panel watches takes forever, in BRIGHT sun. Have you tried leaving it outside, in the sunlight, for at least 12 hours?
