If your watch is light powered, it does not have battery. However, there is a capacitor which needs replacement. New capacitor usually revokes light powered watches and makes them work as new. Rate me,plz.

My Citizen echo drive does not hold a charge.It is 9-Months Old .


Place the watch in direct sunlight of sunrise or sunset for a few weeks and also bright light but not hot light. Wear as usual in direct sunlight as the occasion allows. Once these kind of batteries are discharged, they need quite some time to recharge. Wearing a new solar watch most of the time indoors with bright light only, is normally not enough but once the battery reaches full charge, the extra bright light conditions can be relaxed.

Just purchased the men's Citizen's Eco Drive Nighthawk (Black) ca0295-58e and the second hand on the watch is not ticking. I previously set the date and the hour and minute hands have moved, but not much....


Put the watch in any form of light for some time. Sun is best but not necessary. When the second hand stops running, it is a sign that the capacitor is low. The eco drive is a solar powered watch. When exposed to light, it converts the energy from the light and stores it in an internal capacitor which is really a battery that will last about 20 years.

I can't get my watch to turn on. Do these need batteries?


You have three sources of energy.
Solar/Light energy: expose the watch to direct sunlight.
Battery: replace a spent battery with a fresh one.
Kinetic or Automatic: the watch gets its energy from the movements of the arm on which it is worn. . It must not be put in some drawer and forgotten.

Watch has stopped purchased in 2011...how do I recharge...thanks!


Old watches have a spring which you must wind. Other watches have a battery which must be changed when depleted. The AUTOMATIC watches have to be worn because the mechanism acquires energy by the motion of the hand. Solar watches must be exposed to direct sunlight to recharge a battery inside the watch. While worn they must see the light occasionaly. If the watch is a solar one and you are not wearing it, do not store it in an opaque box, but in a place where it can receive light (from the sun or a light bulb.

Hello I've had my citizen Eco drive skyhawk watch for at least ten years now. I remember reading in my manual years ago that a battery needed to be replaced even though it's solar powered. My watch went...


There could be other issues beside the battery. My best solution would be to take back to where you bought the watch, or any other authorized Citizen watch retailer for repair.

How do change the date on my citizen divers watch


Hi,


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

  1. Pull the setting knob (crown) out one "tick" for setting mode.

  2. Set the mode hand to "WT-S."

  3. Pull the crown out one more "tick."

  4. Press the top button on the right side of the watch for the city setting mode.

  5. Press the lower button on the right side to "SET" the city.

  6. Turn the crown to select a different city, which changes the time zone.

  7. Push the crown all the way back in to finish setting the time.


Thank you for using Fixya.

yes , though the battery is charged by solar cell it does need to be replaced after awhile. So you can get the battery replaced, if it is the battery .

If its not the battery than the solar cell capacitor can also be replaced.

This should be checked out by a professional watch maker they can test the battery and the charger for you for free.

who set set it these have a 5yr guarantee so send it back to citizen ,it may need a new capacitor this is like a battery but it stores the power from solar panel on the face of your watch these always need replacing at sometime within the 5yrs. because it can cause the functions of the watch to malfunction. if you not got the guarantee try a good repairer they may be cheaper then sending bk without guarantee

Watch stopped operating. does it need a battery?


If it is a quartz watch more than likely it just needs a battery. If it is a citizen eco-drive it may need sunlight as it is solar powered.

A "non" fully charged watch will sometimes "jump" seconds rather than indicate one second intervals. Charging these small solar panel watches takes forever, in BRIGHT sun. Have you tried leaving it outside, in the sunlight, for at least 12 hours?
