I have a very similar one that's been in a drawer for a couple of years (thanks HUKD). The hands have stopped, how do I get it going again?

Is it true that even eco drive needs their battery replaced every 10 year or so? also it costs huge £££ to get it done?

24 hours light exposure should get it ticking, if not, new battery as suggested

Should be like replacing a normal watch battery. Authorized dealer might charge a bit. No pun intended.
I got this one 4 years ago. amazon.co.uk/dp/…NSM for £67

This one looks like cut down version.

The one I got is still going strong. Don't let the battery run down to nothing. place it out in light (artificial will work too ) every 3-6months for a few days.

I find the battery capacity and conservation much less than the £150 citizen watches.

However, I really like this watch. Face is very clear. Luminance hands don't stay bright for long in the dark. Keeps time fairly good.

Think battery lasts about 3 days without light before going into conservation mode.

If it's an EcoDrive, Citizen recommend pulling out the crown and leaving it in direct sunlight for a long time to fully recharge before restarting the watch. Charging times can be surprisingly long, but this time of year there's plenty of direct sunlight.

Could try just leaving it by the window for a few days, if after that it hasn't started ticking, then plan B for a new Capacitor.

When the battery dies, the second hand usually stutters/sticks. You could try putting on window ledge. After a few hours it should start ticking again. If not, then the battery will need replacing.
I know I'm being a bit random, but this watch reminds me of this Seiko SRP713 K1 Automatic

Apart from looks, they're different beasts, of course34348883-5E2GC.jpgI've had a (Ladies') Eco-Drive for around eight years, and it's still truckin'....

when low power it moves two spots but still in time
I have a Citizen Eco Drive and never knew I had to put it on the window ledge to charge up! Mind you the battery is fine but will now give it a charge I think!

I bought that too... I've hardly ever worn it.

4 times maximum...
Got mine from Amazon a few years ago. Great watch and time keeping but the strap brought me out in a rash so was changed to a steel one.

Lol. I don't really wear watches anymore - even for work.

I generally wear this one for holidays. When I need to keep an eye on the time. Catch a plane, etc.

Over the years I think I've worn this particular watch alittle more than you, about 15-20 times.
