Why did you pick Citizen? – Citizen watches are not only “Unstoppable,” they have superior quality and a variety of styles. They are also automatically timed and updated everyday.
How long will a battery last in my Citizen watch? – Conventional battery life (not Eco Drive) is dependent on a variety of things including features of your watch such as alarms, age of your watch and how the watch is used. The average life of a conventional battery in a new watch is two years.
The Energy Cells featured in our Eco Drive product have a life of 40 years. Even after 20 years it will still maintain 80% of its original charge capacity. It is highly unusual for one of these special cells to fail.
If your watch battery is no longer working, bring it into any Jewelry Warehouse store for a replacement.
What does Eco-Drive mean? – Citizen Eco-Drive watches use the simplest, yet most technically advanced power generating and storage system in the Watch Manufacturing Industry. A Solar conversion panel and energy cell are the power provider for these Quartz Watches. Eco-Drive’s ability to use light from any source to generate electrical power means that the supply is limitless and free. The absence of any added complex power generating machinery that would require additional upkeep is another big advantage. They can even be charged by a candle! Pretty amazing!
