Imagine… A timepiece that never needs a battery change.
Citizen Eco-Drive technology converts natural and artificial light sources into energy.
It recharges continuously in any kind of light to run forever. Eco-Drive timepieces are ‘Unstoppable’.
How Citizen Eco-Drive Works
Natural and artificial lights are absorbed through the dial.
A special solar cell converts the light into energy.
Enough energy is stored to power the timepiece, even in the dark, from 135 days to 7 years depending on the model.
Eco Friendly Movement, Powered by Light
In concordance to such position is also the company’s breakthrough and success in constructing the cutting-edge Ecological Friendly timepieces, which they achieved with their Citizen Eco-Drive collection. Watches that are part of this collection are powered by both, natural and artificial sort of light. The Timepieces from Eco-Drive line of products by Citizen Watches therefore do not require batteries and are constantly fueled by light. All the models from this series are constructed in Japan, though some are assembled in China.
The Skyhawk A-T series represent yet another technological advance that Citizen Watches applied. These timepieces are able to synchronize with the extremely accurate atomic watches, situated in North America, Japan and Europe.
Citizen Watch Company is also well-known by its timepieces for the collectors. One of those series is a line of products made especially in colors and with the logo of the famous Blue Angels, the oldest flying aerobatic team in the world. These products are from the Citizen Skyhawk A-T series and they include both, Eco-Drive and Atomic Timekeeping, and the bezel with a slide rule which can be used to calculate time, speed, distance and the other needed conversions.
