Getting Started with Eco-Drive
(Does not apply to conventional battery operated models)
Your new Eco-Drive timepiece is specially powered by proprietary ECO-DRIVE TECHNOLOGY,
which converts any source of light (natural and articial) into usable energy. The harnessed energy
is then stored in a special power reserve to keep your timepiece charged and running properly.
When fully charged, your Eco-Drive will continue running - even in total darkness- for at least six
(6) months. Properly maintained, it will never need another battery.
If you wear your new Citizen Eco-Drive timepiece on a regular basis, recharging will be virtually
automatic as regular exposure to light will keep your power reserve unending.
Recharge times will vary based on your timepiece and the type of light utilized. Direct sunlight is
the fastest, most efcient light source for recharging. Recharging information for your basic analog
timepiece can be found on page 4 of this booklet. For other models, please refer to your specic
instruction booklet or the technical support section of our web site at
If you plan to store your Citizen Eco-Drive in the dark, you should do this for no more than six (6)
months. After this extended period of time, you should ensure that your timepiece is exposed to
bright light for the full recharge period as outlined in the recharge guide on page 4 in order to return
your timepiece to a full charge.
Recharging your basic analog Eco-Drive timepiece.
Your Eco-Drive timepiece thrives with regular exposure to light sufcient for charging.
Some circumstances however may prevent your Eco-Drive timepiece from receiving
regular exposure to light sufcient for charging. In these circumstances, you may need
to provide supplemental exposure to light. The chart below outlines general recharging
requirements for your basic analog Eco-Drive timepiece.
After your basic analog Eco-Drive timepiece is fully charged, it will run for a minimum
of six (6) months without further charging.
Overcharge Protection Feature
Your Eco-Drive timepiece features an overcharge prevention system. When the recharge-
able cell is fully charged, special circuits engage to prevent it from becoming over-
charged. There is no need to worry about exposing your timepiece to “too much” light.

Low Charge Warning
Your basic analog timepiece may feature a low charge warning function to provide a
visual indication that power is running low. If your timepiece features Eco-Drive technol-
ogy, be sure to immediately recharge it to prevent complete loss of power. If your time-
piece is operated by a conventional battery, have the battery replaced by an Authorized
Service Center immediately.

but has not yet been set. This irregular movement will continue until the time is set, even
if the timepiece has been fully charged after a complete discharge.

Special Handling Instructions
1. Conventional Power Cell Replacements (does not apply to Eco-Drive)
Have the battery replaced regularly by an Authorized Citizen Service Center or dealer who will
properly recycle or safely dispose of the expired battery. Expired batteries may leak and cause
damage to the movement of your timepiece. If the battery expires while in your timepiece, have
it replaced immediately.
2. Avoid Temperature Extremes
Exposing your timepiece to high or low temperatures may adversely affect timekeeping and po-
tentially damage sensitive components. You should never place your timepiece on the dashboard
of your vehicle or wear in a sauna or hot tub. Leaving your timepiece in extreme cold tempera-
tures may cause irregular operation until the timepiece returns to normal operating temperature.
3. Avoid Strong Shocks
Your timepiece will withstand normal shock experienced during normal wear. Take care how-
ever not to drop or sharply knock your timepiece against objects.
4. Avoid strong magnetic elds and/or electronics that may emit static electricity.
Items such as magnetic bracelets, magnetic coin trays, cell phone speakers, portable speakers,
microwave ovens, televisions and some computer monitors may cause erratic timekeeping.
5. Avoid chemicals and gases
Avoid wearing this timepiece in the presence of chemicals and gases such as some household
cleaners, adhesives, paint, gasoline, benzine, nail polish remover, spray cosmetics including per-
fumes, or the like as these may cause discoloration, and deterioration of the case and band.
