You need to expose this watch to sunlight for about 8 hours to let it recharge it's solar cell. Make sure that sunlight is shining directly on the face and not just "kind of" shining on the face. I put it in a window ledge where the sun beats down to make sure it gets the most sunlight possible.

Repeat this for a few days to make sure it's fully charged.

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, did you store 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.

The eco drive means that it charges the battery using artificial light or sunlight, there is no need to wind as the battery never runs out of charge providing you keep it in light.

I am desperate to find an owner's / instruction manual for the Promaster SST Citizen Eco Drive watch.Please TELL ME A PHONE NUMBER I CAN USE TO OBTAIN THIS.


To determine the exact model and specifications of your Citizen Eco-Drive, flip the watch to the reverse. On the case back will be extensive information about your timepiece. You're looking for the "movement caliber," a four-character combination of letters and numbers, separated from the seven-digit "case number" by a hyphen.
Next step, visit this links:

- citizenwatch.com/COA/English/settings.asp

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).
