Being an Eco drive watch it needs light to make it work. Place under a light source for a few hours an see if this works. If not it will need a new power cell, which is like a rechargeable battery for them. It will need to be purchased from citizen or suitable watch maker

I put a new battery in a citizen navihawk thunderbird watch. How do i progam it now?


an Eco-drive does not have a battery, it has a rechargeable power cell that is charged by light through the face of the watch. If you have replaced this cell you may have damaged the watch. If the cell was not soldered in, replace it and put it under a fluorescent light for a little while (several hours) and it should start working.

Does this watch have an eco drive? or just a regular battery. It doesn't seem to work. EK2794-56H Citizen women's two-tone bracelet watch.


I coouldn't find your watch on their web site but all the "eco" watches I saw had "eco drive" on the face. If could be that if it is an eco drive, that the battery has run down and needs re-charging.

If you go to "citizen.com" and on the upper right there is a menu. Click on "technical
support" and then "recharge guides" you will see what you need to do to fully recharge the watch (basically it needs to be left out in the sun for a few hours0.

Citizen Eco Drive


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,you stored your watch in a drawer as many people do? 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. Be sure to ask the watch repair man if he knows the eco drive uses special battery, if not sure, find another watch repair man before he kills your watch ;)
