I was given a skyhawk eco drive watch from my late fatherinlaw,its brand new but it has been in its case(box)in dark for a long time and doesn't work...how do I get it going???


An Eco drive citizen is powered by the sun. You should take the watch out in the sunlight or put under a lamp to charge it for at least 12 hours. Once it is running you need to wear it to keep it running, you should be able to take it off at night and it will continue to run once it is fully charged. if it does not hold a charge over night after being fully exposed to light for 24-48 hours you may need to send it to Citizen for service on the capacitor. thank you!

Citizen Eco-drive Tip


Hello Citizen Eco-drive owners.

There may come a time when your watch batery discharges to a point that the watch halts operation. Do not worry this problem can be easily fixed if you place your watch in sunlight for an extended period of time. Just remember that the watch must not get too hot.

Take care.

Works fine when under the light but stops when I wear it.


Your capacitor will needs to be replaced. This usually has to be done about every 5-8 years.

Your watch capacitor is unable to recharge to the needed voltage. Try to put in on window sill in sunlight or under the bright lamp and leave it for a few days.
If it will not restart after doing thet, you will need to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for capacitor replacement.
Don't forget to rate, please.

What is the proper battery placement or orientation for eco-drive


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. If you look into the place where the battery goes, you will see a shiny spot where the metal clip needs to touch. If not sure, find the link to tech docs below.
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.

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.

Restarting my Citizen Promaster Eco Divers 200 Watch


Since it's eco-drive you can just wear it for a few hours and it should self-wind. The problem is that when it sits still for more than a few days it winds down. It gets its power from the natural movement of your wrist as you walk around.

Once it starts ticking again you'll just have to set the time correctly.
