Question about Citizen Eco-Drive Calibre 5700 AT1070-54L Wrist Watch

Open Question

Hello, I have a citizen watch H570 and I have the following problem. The chronograph second hand is stuck at 5 seconds and it would not move. When I try to start or reset the chronograph it does not do anything. I tried the reseting chronograph procedure from my manual but it did not work. Other than that the watch is working normally and it is fully charged. What could be the problem? Thank you for your answer

A "non" fully charged watch will sometimes "jump" seconds rather than indicate one second intervals. Charging these small solar panel watches takes forever, in BRIGHT sun. Have you tried leaving it outside, in the sunlight, for at least 12 hours?

SOURCE: the second hand is not moving

I have the same problem with my watch. The second hand
tends to stop even if it's not dim. Leave the watch outside
in bright sun for several hours. I've found that this will charge the watch so that afterwards,
the second hand will work even inside (well, not all the time,
but if it's fairly bright).

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.

Large second sweep hand on citizen ca0258-03e


On your particular model the seconds hand is the small dial at 6 o'clock and if you look at this you should see this moving around constantly. The larger hand you may think is the second hand is actually your Chrono hand and will only go around when using the stopwatch etc.

Swatch diaphane second hand stuck


Hello, a week ago the small second hand (not long chrono second hand) got stucked and my irony swatch just stop moving. Although the chronometer could be running if started... The small hand just didn't move.
I tried different tricks, like removing battery, pull out main wheel and use chrono buttons to reset arms. Etc.
Today I noticed that when turning the wheel backwards a couple of times (one or two hours back) the little hand moved one second back... Pushing wheel back to On possition made the small hand move forward one second and get stucked again.
Then I did this procedure a couple of times, at some point I turned the wheel back for a while (may be 5 full turns) and noticed the small hand moved more than one second (5, 10, 15 seconds backward)... when I noticed it was moving freely I pushed wheel to on position and noticed the small second hand was running normal.. I hope it works for some of you. Greettings from Canada

The second hand doesn't move . i tried pushing the buttons in the chronograph mode, the time mode and nothing. i have a citizen eco-drive BL5260.


I assume that you do not have any instructions for this watch.
If you enter "www.citizen-signature.com/#/settings/" you should arrive at the page for your watch.

You can download the manual or look at sections.

Citizen Chronograph watch - Button A and B not responding


You would probably have $50 or more in repairs at a Jeweler, but it maybe worth it to you to have that done.

Second hand seconds out


This definetely is NOT a fault as all modern watches are fully adjustable unless damaged.
All resetting functions should be in your watch manual. Just follow step by step and the problem should be solved.
In case you've lowst your manual:
Go to www.citizenwatch.com find technical support and your exact watch or by caliber number.

Good luck

The second hand is not moving


Got the same problem guys. i have one of the new electronic diving eco drives.
First time i managed to get it going again, by forcing all the hands to the top for diving mode, then back to normal, this action ´nudged´the minute hand back into motion, but a little later it stuck again at the same spot.
I guess mines going back to the factory, and i´m gonna b watchless for a few weeks :(
