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!

Does this watch have an eco drive? or just a regular battery. It doesn't seem to work. EK2794-56H Citizen women's two-tone bracelet watch.


I coouldn't find your watch on their web site but all the "eco" watches I saw had "eco drive" on the face. If could be that if it is an eco drive, that the battery has run down and needs re-charging.

If you go to "citizen.com" and on the upper right there is a menu. Click on "technical
support" and then "recharge guides" you will see what you need to do to fully recharge the watch (basically it needs to be left out in the sun for a few hours0.

My watch stopped working. It's been in a jewelry box for a few months, no exposure to light. What do I do?


Eco-drive watch should work for 1 year out of light. Take it out of the drawer and place in light, and check that the pin on the side is pushed in all the way.

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.

My eco drive watch just stopped working... oddly enough it was a day after a day in the sun? It was fine and then I changed the time 1 hour foward and the next day nothing.


Perhaps it got too hot. The operating range for watches seems to be zero to sixty degree centigrade.

If left in a very sunny position it could have exceeded the higher temperature. If it doesn't recover by itself, then try a new battery.

It might be instructive to talk to the maker (address at Citizen.com) to confirm my suggestion before replacing the battery.

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.

Can't get new eco drive watch to start!


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 the watch does not run? 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.
