SOURCE: set date on a citizen
One must adjust for the correct month to sink the perpetual function. thI am looking for.is is done by pulling the stop half way out then holding in the top button and turning the knob clock-wise. This will move the dial on the chronograph. Depending on month you set it to 1,2, or 3. Sorry I do not remember which is which, which is what

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 watch does not run okay? 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. As long as the watch keeps running I believe it should keep good time. It is quartz anyway. If this is not the case, and a good sunbath does not help, the mechanism could be running heavy, possibly due to overheating the watch; no help there...
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.

Hope this will helped you fixing the time of your Citezen divers watch. Just foolow the instruction below.
Change your Citizen watch's time zone without actually moving the clock hands. On the digital display, change the city that displays on the watch, which sets the time to the different time zone. The Citizen also has a calendar, timer, chronograph and LED lights. Since it is an Eco Drive watch, it is solar powered so you never have to replace the batteries unless its backup power source dies.
Difficulty: Easy Instructions
Pull the setting knob (crown) out one "tick" for setting mode.
Set the mode hand to "WT-S."
Pull the crown out one more "tick."
Press the top button on the right side of the watch for the city setting mode.
Press the lower button on the right side to "SET" the city.
Turn the crown to select a different city, which changes the time zone.
Push the crown all the way back in to finish setting the time.
Thank you for using Fixya.
