Here is the link to Citizen Authorized service centers, I am sure they can open the watch. Sometimes it is just a matter of having the right tool. I have several Citizen watches that are not supposed to be opened by anyone other than citizen. Good luck and I hope that helps.,

How to submit questions about watches


To submit correct question about any watch here on FixYa you have to give as much details of particular watch as possible. There are hundreds of people asking for help, but it makes no sense if the question, for example, is: How can I adjust my Citizen stainless steel watch? Citizen, as any other watch manufacturer produces thousands of watch models and every year few hundreds of new models are added. This makes impossible to recognize any watch by the brand name given only.
So, to make sure that you will receive proper help with your watch, please always submit:
1. Brand name;
2. Model name;
3.Type of display ( Analog or digital or both);
4.Type of movement (Mechanical, quartz, kinetic, solar e.t.c.);
5.Number of the watch (Usually written on watch's case back);
6.All the writings you can find on watch's case back.
If you are not sure what type of movement your watch has, here is a tip how to find it out: Observe watch's seconds hand. If it is moving in jumping action second after second - your watch has a quartz movement which is battery driven. If the seconds hand is moving in sweeping action - most likely your watch has mechanical movement which is driven by spring.
The more information you will submit, the better.

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.

Have fitted a new battery but no joy, any tips I can try?


mcdevito75 here, Some quartz watches and I believe Citizen is on of which need the exact factory number battery installed / replaced. if you did use the exact battery number and the new battery is not working, remove the battery and carefully clean the battery contacts with a Q-tip and rubbibg alchohol do not soak the battery contacts just clean them. Also your new battery could be dead, who knows how long it was on the store shelf. Alaso wipe off any oil from your fingers on the new battery before you install it in the watch, make sure the battery is seated correctly in the watch, the back cover may also have to be installed back onto the watch to complete the battery circut for the watch to work. If all this fails you can try to contact Citizen online, Contact CitizenWatch.com and get their recommended battery size for your watch, OR, look for a small watch repair shop in your area. One Last thing, Your Citizen watches Quartz mechanism could also have gone bad, in this case you"ll need a new watch.

Changed battery(capasitor) in citizen E811m. Watch and still does not work. Does battery have to be charged first and if so HOW?


I take it this is an Eco-Drive. You must ensure you have the correct replacement cell (cap) and it will need charging. See your instruction manual for details on charging. You can download instrustions from citizens website if you've lost them.
