If the watch has a crown on the side to set it you should be able to pull it out & turn it to set the hands. It the watch is not running it may need to have the capacitor replaced. Which would have to be taken to a watch repair person.

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.

Eco-drive watches do not need winding or batteries, so if you are winding it to make it work, then it is not a true Eco-drive watch.

Bad capacitor (Titanium Ion Battery)... probably a $30 or so repair on a fine watch.

On my Citizen Eco Drive, although I pulled it out to the second stop, I have to pull just a bit harder to get the hands to engage. You may want to take it to a jeweler and ask them about it. They may be able to fix it on the spot at no cost. Who knows and there is no charge for asking.

Being an Eco drive watch it needs light to make it work. Place under a light source for a few hours an see if this works. If not it will need a new power cell, which is like a rechargeable battery for them. It will need to be purchased from citizen or suitable watch maker

Eco-drives need to be exposed to light every day. To learn how to recharge your watch, you truly need to go to the following Citizen link:
