Citizens Eco Drive watches are very affordable and very easy to maintain, as they are solar powered and do not require battery changes for a more extended period of time. Additionally, as they are quartz movements, they will usually remain incredibly accurate.
Do Citizen Eco Drive watches need servicing?
Despite not having a battery, weve learned that whether it is by running out of charge, the movement needing replacing, or the solar cell finally timing out, Eco-Drive watches will need occasional servicing to ensure that the “lifelong watch” really lives up to its reputation.
Why is my Citizen Eco Drive watch losing time?
Most commonly, if an Eco Drive is stopping it is more indicative of a low charge. If it is running slow, it may indicate it is time to have the movement serviced. 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.
Can citizen Eco-Drive watches be repaired?
No job is too big or too small and we can do any repair on any watch. Our repairs can be as simple as a capacitor change, pin replacement, or band replacement, and can be as complicated as a dial refinish, a band/case polish, movement clean and overhaul and even a complete restoration.
Why did my Citizen Eco Drive watch stop?
It is highly unusual for these cells to fail. Most commonly, if an Eco Drive is stopping it is more indicative of a low charge. It means that the reserve power is getting low and the energy cell needs to be fully recharged by expos- ing it to light for a period of time outlined in your owners manual.
Is Citizen Swiss made?
Citizen is one of the most vertically integrated manufactures in the world. They make all the components in-house in Japan. The only exception is the movements used in some Campagnola watches are made by La Joux Perret, a company which Citizen owns, and which manufactures out of Switzerland.
