SOURCE: second does not reset to 12

You should be able to solve this by pulling out the Crown(the one with which you set your normal clock), Pull it out in the 2nd stand.
Then by pushing the 'start/stop' button --> you change the minutes.
By pushing the 'lap/reset' button --> you change the seconds

It worked for me, took me a few minutes to figure it out, i hope this saves others the time of doing that :p

SOURCE: Citizen Eco Drive second hand stoped working

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, or watch does not run okay? 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. As long as the watch keeps running I believe it should keep good time. It is quartz anyway. If this is not the case, and a good sunbath does not help, the mechanism could be running heavy, possibly due to overheating the watch; no help there...
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.

I had the same issue, and was able to reset it doing the following:

1. I let it recharge for at least a day in bright sunlight
2. I turned the selector to "CHR"
3. I pulled the crown all the way out.
4. I held both buttons down for 5 seconds (don't know if this was what did it.
5. I pushed the crown back in.

It did some funky hand movements stuff and then started off working.

Citizen eco drive watch is brand new, but the second hand doesn't move. Watch does keep time and date.


You should take the watch back to the dealer for exchange or refund since it would be under warranty, taking the watch apart will void your warranty leaving you unhappy with your purchase.

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.

The watch is dead i tried to charge it and it will not turn on ..how do you reset the citizen eco-drive skyhawk


DO NOT TRY TO CHANGE THE BATTERY! There is no battery! Eco drive watches have a capacitor that is charged by light! Put it in a sunny window for a day OR set it under a cool light. Check it often to see if it starts working, if after a few hours its still not running then take it to a local watch repair business. Its possible that the capacitor is bad. They are also very difficult to set so you will need your manual if you want to attempt it on your own!

You can find your model number on the case back! We use their site often at our watch repair business!

1 Answer

Citizen Eco-Drive


Could be that the watch inside and outside numbers do not match. If the dial says Eco Drive, that should be the first step. Next, find out about the 4 digit number that tells you which type we are looking at. You may want to open the back and look at the number on the watch internals. But be aware you may damage the water proof seal in doing so.
Really, you should write down all numbers you can see and send an email to citizen. They will help you.
