Eco-Drive: The Watch that Never Needs a Battery
Powered by Light
Eco-Drive is designed to convert both natural and artificial light into energy to power watches. This means that you do not require any battery replacement, charging or winding to maintain constant operation.
Easy to Charge
No matter the quality of the light, Eco-Drive watches can charge from any natural or artificial light-source. This means that even in dim light your watch will keep on charging, making Eco-Drive practical and easy to use.
Keeps Running in the Dark
Featuring a lithium-ion cell which stores energy converted from light within the watch. Complete with low energy warning and power save mode, when fully charged Eco-Drive watches can run for up to 7 years even in the dark.
Kind to the Planet
Eco-Drive watches never need a battery change, which can leach chemicals and pollute landfills. Since 1976, Citizen has kept an estimated over 75 million batteries out of landfill sites.

As another reviewer mentioned, the rose gold tone is very subtle, and not at all the heavy-handed copper tone you sometimes see. In the right light, it’s definitely rose, but a lot of the time, it strikes me as a well-executed yellow gold—perhaps the hint of rose works to take out the chintzy fluorescent glint so prevalent in yellow gold tone cases these days? Regardless, it works really well with my yellow gold wedding band, so if you’re wishing that Citizen made this in yellow gold, don’t let the rose gold description deter you from buying. While I’m on the subject, I think another review stated the hands were yellow gold. They’re not. They match the case and hour markers exactly.
The dial is very well done. Bravo, Citizen. They could have really screwed this up with a silver dial, and while white or grey would have worked, it would have been pretty unremarkable. I’ve been trying to think of how to describe this dial, and the best I can come up with is almond milk glass with the softest, most subtle pearlescent sun ray finish you can imagine. And at an angle, that beautiful raised crystal warps everything and throws light strings around—it’s very pretty.
Every watch collection needs a watch like this. It’s always tasteful. I’m enjoying mine.
*I referenced Patek and Vacheron earlier but that was only because it’s the high houses that have carried the flag for the traditional men’s dress watch, and I see influences from both in this watch. But I wouldn’t call this “a Patek for tens of thousands less!” That’s really not the angle here. This is the quintessential, working-man’s dress watch, scaled up for 21st century tastes.
As for its operation, I'm impressed with its accuracy. After I set my watch, I've noticed a change of only a few seconds, month to month.
Another reason I bought this watch is because of its Eco-Drive, powered by light; I bought a Citizen watch for my wife several years ago and it has never stopped working. I think I read somewhere in the literature I received from Citizen, that when fully charged, the watch would continue to operate for up to six months without light. I've figured that if I'm in an environment for six months without light, I probably won't need a watch.
All in all, I think this is by far, one of the better purchases I've made.
This is a simple, uncluttered yet elegant classic analog watch to wear as a dress watch or even as a casual one. I noticed that the three hands are yellow gold in contrast to the overall rose gold tone settings thereby making those hands easily distinguishable from the hour markers in dim lighting situations. In addition, I like the ivory color dial that evokes calm and pleasant feeling and that provides better background color for the hands/hour markers than the usual white dial. The curved edge of the mineral crystal sloping downward to meet the case adds extra charm to the watch. And it produces an interesting optical illusion that the lengths of the dial markers on the southern part appear much longer than that of the markers on the northern half while viewing the time. It is nice to know that the special energy storage cell of this watch does not require replacement and an overcharge prevention function is also featured. The degree of water resistance indicates that this watch withstands rain and splashes of water, but not showering or submission. The width of the brown leather strap band is about 27/32”. The watch caseback shows the serial numbers at 6 o’clock position and the movement caliber/case numbers at 8. The function setting instructions and recharging guide are readily available from their website, and they are easy to follow. I am a happy camper to own this attractive and dignified timepiece.
PS - I think the photo featured for sale is somewhat underexposed, and the actual watch, especially the dial, looks a lot different and better.
