Warning about charging a Citizen Eco Drive watch

The Citizen Eco Drive watches charge from exposure to light.
Daylight exposure can charge an Eco Drive in mere hours.
But many people have damaged an Eco Drive watch by trying to charge
it indoors, and put the watch too close to the light source, for example a desk
The Eco Drive watches are very sensitive to heat, and they should never be
placed close to a light source.
If you cannot wear it on your wrist on a gorgeous sunny day, then set it face up on the windowsill.

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.

Your watch runs on light, you need to leave the watch under a light source for at least 18 hours, then as long as your wearing it, it should keep running if you are exposing it to light. At nighttime for a couple nights leave it under a light, so it has a good charge and keeps running. If this does not work then you need to call Citizen Watch repair at 1-800-321-1023.

To determine the exact model and specifications of your Citizen Eco-Drive, flip the watch to the reverse. On the case back will be extensive information about your timepiece. You're looking for the "movement caliber," a four-character combination of letters and numbers, separated from the seven-digit "case number" by a hyphen.
Next step, visit this links:

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).
