How do you open this watch. I been looking for the right anwer all over the place and without luck. The stem is broken and I may have parts, but I need to open it first. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
If you can't see a buckle on the outside, you may have a invisible double lock clasp. Look in the inside of the watch, if there is bar, find the center of the bar and place one thumb on either side of the two links in the center of the bar. Press outward, away from the watch the two links will open an expand to reveal a "butterfly" expansion.

Some of these eco-drive watches use a swinging weight self winding mechanism (albeit through a generator) or a solar cell under the dial, some use both. Either way the capacitor is the thing that holds the charge and once that fails it will need replacing. Sometimes not as straight forward as replacing a battery as you nay have to remove the auto weight and sometimes usually on the solar ones its just a case of popping it out and a new one in. They are quite difficult to identify and get hold of but they do differ from normal batteries as they come with 1 of the contacts attached to them to prevent fitting an ordinary battery by mistake
First, be sure that the stem is fully pressed in. Pulling out the stem to set the watch stops the action.
The Eco-Drive is still a battery watch. It just has a solar/light powered recharge system built in. The battery will run down after a year of no light. Place the Eco-Drive in bright sunlight for a couple of days in order to recharge the built-in battery. You may recharge the watch in fluorescent light as well, it just takes longer.
If you haven't got instructions you can get them from you can get instructions from the Citizen web site.
Go to "citizen.com" and on the upper right there is a menu. Click on "technical support" and then on "setting instructions"
Fill in the information required from the back of your watch and then click on "get setting instructions"
If this does not help I suggest that you contact them and discuss your problem. The web site indicates that there a 5 year warranty on their watches. If this applies to your watch, then they should repair it free of charge.
