The watch has a "battery" and claims that it does not need to be replaced but perhaps it needs re-charging. If you go to their web site (click on the link below), there is a full explanation of re-charging requirements :-

I put a new battery in a citizen navihawk thunderbird watch. How do i progam it now?


an Eco-drive does not have a battery, it has a rechargeable power cell that is charged by light through the face of the watch. If you have replaced this cell you may have damaged the watch. If the cell was not soldered in, replace it and put it under a fluorescent light for a little while (several hours) and it should start working.

Hello I've had my citizen Eco drive skyhawk watch for at least ten years now. I remember reading in my manual years ago that a battery needed to be replaced even though it's solar powered. My watch went...


There could be other issues beside the battery. My best solution would be to take back to where you bought the watch, or any other authorized Citizen watch retailer for repair.

CITIZEN ECO-DRIVE SKYHAWK WATCH not working


If this watch is several year old, it could be that the power cell is defective, and won't hold a charge. I have been also told by a Citizen Tech, that they will sometimes "hangup" or lock up, and may just need a quick jolt. This doesn't happen often, but Citizen has the equipment to test and supply this jolt to sort of kick start the movement again. They would also replace the battery while it was open. You can sometimes place it into direct sunlight for 15-30 minutes, but no longer...unless you want to melt the insides...lol.

Most Geniune Citizens have a five year warranty. Keep that mind too. Thanks.

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!

Hi. Just purchased a Citizen Eco-Drive JR3 in black. Placed it under a lamp overnight, but the solar charge bars still haven't appeared. Is this normal? Thanks!


Try placing it in sunlight or daylight for a day and see if that makes a difference. If it is more than a 4 years only the capacitor/battery may be old and needs to be replaced. A low wattage lamp may be slow at recharging the cell.
