Question about Watches

I cannot figure out how to set up my new Citizen Eco Drive 9000 calibre Minute Repeater Perpetual watch. It is fully charged, but I can't figure out using the manual why it is not going to the 0-Set position, etc. Thank you, Dennis

Seconds Correction Function (0-SET)

1. Procedure for Setting to the
"Seconds" of a Standard Clock

(1) Press button (C - Bottom Left Button) until the date & mode hand moves to
the "0-SET" seconds correction function.
· The sub watch hour hand and sub watch
minute hand indicate the current time.
(2) Press button (B - Top Right Button) in synchronization with
a standard clock or other time signal.

* The movement of the hands differs
according to the position of the second
hand on the watch.

When second hand is between 0 and 29 seconds (watch is running fast relative to the standard clock) :

· Second hand:
Waits at the same position for the amount of time (seconds) the watch is running fast.

(For example, if the watch is running fast by 3 seconds, the second hand waits at the same position for 3 seconds.)

· Date & mode hand:
Moves backward to the location of the date corresponding to the same number of seconds by which the watch is running fast, and then begins to count down from that position. (For example, if the watch is running fast by 3 seconds, the date & mode hand moves backward to the 3 position of the date.)

When the second hand is between 30 and 59 seconds (watch is running slow relative
to the standard clock):
· Second hand: Returns to the 0 seconds position and begins to move.
· Date & mode hand: Waits at the 0-SET position.
Countdown Operation
· The date & mode hand informs you of the amount of time until the second hand begins to move in the case the second hand is between 0 and 29 seconds when button (B) has been pressed during correction.

· The watch automatically returns to the time display if none of the buttons are pressed
for about 2 minutes.

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.

I have an Citizen Eco Drive Perpetual wrist watch / calibre 8700. I can't adjust to the right date/month. please help.

This will likely require you taking the back off, removing the battery, reinserting, and then shorting the battery and AC. You will also need to look up the manuel online from Citizen's website, or go to a jeweler to have them reset your perpetual calender.
