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.

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.

Can,t set timeon watch


OK try and follow these steps and it may help you set the time on your Watch. Once you understand the different function buttons on the edge of the case setting the time will be an easy task.

1-Note the 2 and 4 o'clock function buttons and the crown at 3 o'clock on the case edge of the Citizen Skyhawk Eco-Drive. These buttons set all functions of the watch.

2-Set the home city digital display function at 9 o'clock by pulling the crown to the first position. Rotate the crown until the mode hand in the subdial at 6 o'clock is aligned with TME. Press the 2 o'clock button until the nearest major city where you live appears. Press the 2 and 4 o'clock buttons at the same time to find the home city in the 3 o'clock digital display window. Once the city is selected, the time is automatically set by the automatic radio reception function.

3-Pull the crown out to the first position to manually set the time. Rotate the crown until the mode hand is aligned with the CAL, TME and RX-S position under the umbrella line. Push the crown flush with the case edge. Point the watch's 9 o'clock side in the direction of the radio transmitter. For example, if you live in Los Angeles, point the watch's 9 o'clock side east towards Ft. Collins, Colo., where the transmitter is located.

4-Hold down the 4 o'clock button for two seconds until the tone sounds and the second hand stops at the RX-S position. The second hand will then move to H, M or L found at the 2 o'clock subdial. Remain holding the watch in the same position. The second hand will move from the H, M or L position with the hour and minute hands to the correct time once the radio reception is completed.

5-Press the 2 o'clock button to start the chronograph's stopwatch. Press the button a second time to stop the timer. Press the 4 o'clock button to reset the timer.

6-Pull the crown all the way out and rotate it clockwise until the correct date is selected. Push the crown flush when finished.

IF you are still not able to set the time contact your dealer or the nearest Citizen showroom.

Describe your Citizen Skyhawk Eco-Drive JR306059F Wrist Watch Problem: How to correct 0 position of 24 four hour hand. I think its done in conjunction with hour hand but how?


Here is how to correct the 0 Position for your watch.

While your the crown of your watch is down in the starting position , turn the crown until the mode hand (this is the circle at the bottom of the face) reaches CHR

At this time now pull out the crown until it clicks two times, two the second setting of the crown.

This will bring the watch to the 0 position correction function.
you can turn the crown clock wise to correct the hour hand.

press the a button to switch hand to second, or press again to switch to minute. Then use crown again to correct 0 position.

The hour and the 24 hour hand is in conjunction with each other.

then push down the crown all the way in and you should be all set.

I had the same issue, and was able to reset it doing the following:

1. I let it recharge for at least a day in bright sunlight
2. I turned the selector to "CHR"
3. I pulled the crown all the way out.
4. I held both buttons down for 5 seconds (don't know if this was what did it.
5. I pushed the crown back in.

It did some funky hand movements stuff and then started off working.

Seconds ticker jumps,stops,jumps


It means that the reserve power is getting low and the energy cell needs to be fully recharged by exposing it to light for a period of time outlined in your owner's manual. This may also occur after fully recharging your watch after a complete discharge of the energy cell. If you have fully charged your watch and the second hand continues to move in two second intervals, you need to do an all reset of the watch. For simple analog models, pull the crown out to the time setting position for 30 seconds, then return the crown to the closed position next to the case, then set the time. For multi-function models, please refer to your owners manual.
