THE WATCH THAT NEVER STOPS, WHEREVER YOU ARE.
Inventing technology to ensure that a watch never stops anywhere in the world was one of the challenges for CITIZEN. In 1976, we invented the world’s revolutionary light-powered analog quartz watch that uses only light as a power source. This technology, now known as “Eco-Drive”, can generate power from any light source, artificial, natural and even dim light to keep watches running without ever replacing batteries. As a pioneer of the field, we set new challenges for ourselves to bring forth the full potential of power generation using light.
What is Eco-Drive?
Eco-Drive is designed to convert both natural and artificial light into energy to power watches. Watches with Eco-Drive do not require any battery replacement, charging or winding to maintain constant operation.
CITIZEN’s proprietary light-powered technology Eco-Drive is an exceptional technological achievement that also reflects our concern for the natural surroundings. The name and logo display our commitment to building a brand for people all over the world.
CITIZEN’s Eco-Drive technology has won acclaim in Japan for its contribution. Eco-Drive watch was nominated as the first watch to qualify for the Eco Mark,
How it Works
Natural and artificial lights are absorbed through the crystal and dial
A special solar cell converts the natural and artificial lights into electrical energy
Enough energy is stored to power the watch, even in the dark, for approximately 6 months or longer
No need for regular battery replacement
Once upon a time, everyone accepted that quartz watches had to have their batteries replaced at regular intervals. But the advent of Eco-Drive overturned the conventional thinking. Eco-Drive is a light-powered technology that drives watches by capturing light and converting it into energy using an inbuilt solar cell. Suddenly the hassle of replacing batteries was a thing of the past.
Runs even in dim light
Eco-Drive is designed to charge from ordinary everyday light sources like indoor fluorescent lighting and desk lights. You can go about your everyday life confident that your watch will never stop.
* To get the most out of your watch, set aside about five or six hours per month to charge it in sunlight.
Runs for over six months even in darkness
Do you need light to generate power for your watch all the time? Not with Eco-Drive. A single full charge is enough to keep Eco-Drive working for over six months in total darkness. Indeed, some models equipped with power save function can run for as long as seven years.
* Some models run for less than six months.
