With Citizen Eco-Drive watches the terms light and lightweight are mutually exclusive. The brand is currently celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Eco-Drive Watch technology, which was developed in the 1970’s and formally introduced into timepiece collections for the general public in the mid 1990’s.
Citizen Eco-Drive watches have a built-in solar chip and are powered by the sun or any other light source. The solar chip converts this light into energy that is stored in a power cell inside the watch and features a power reserve that lasts approximately six months or more, even if stored in a dark environment.
Citizen Eco-Drive watches are also ecologically friendly, since the batteries inside do not have to be replaced and later discarded into the environment. What’s more, many Eco-Drive men’s and women’s watches have exceptionally thin cases measuring 13mm or less in thickness, making them considerably lighter in weight in comparison to other watch styles.
