Re: watch face is foggy
Go and see watchmaker as soon as possible or you will have to bin your watch very soon. That foggyness (condensate) in watch will soon disappear, but the movement of the watch is affected anyway and the rust works amazingly quick. Rush in to your nearest watch repair shop and ask to dry out your watch. Unfortunately you can't do it yourself as the specific skills are needed.

If you wear it and do not see condensation on the crystal then it is likely OK. Many watches are at least water resistant which may keep water out for shallow immersion. You should not attempt to open these watches yourself as they are a bit trick from what I can find.
Do not even try to clean. Any physical touch will destroy original colours and laquer. I'd advise to go to your nearest watch repair shop and do the estimate first. Then you will know what the each piece is worth. Only after estimate you can decide witch is the right one to clean. If the estimate is lower than $10 - you can put it in to your washing machine and just laugh about the struggle. Hope the rest of your watches have some value. :))) Rate me, plz.
These water proof watches are only water proof if the knob for setting the time is pushed all the way in. Try to call your Citizen dealer, if you read them the numbers on the back yhey can see if there is warranty to check the problem for free.

DONT try to change a watch battery yourself unless you have crystal press to close it and thats if the case back pops off...if it screws on then you need a case wrench to open and close it! Better to seek out a local watch repair business and avoid Walmart! :-P They arent trained to repair watches...Ive fixed a lot of their mistakes!
Take a small thin piece of cloth or paper towel, fold it and use to cover the watch face. Put one quarter (coin) on top and one quarter (coin) on the bottom. Place the sandwich in a pair of pliers, center thhe pliers and press, when you hear the snap, the back is on. Do not use on a watch with a domed crystal, or at least use a lot more padding over the face. Takes 10 seconds.
