Clever it is, found this,

How does eco drive work:

The secret of citizen eco drive watches is the way that light is absorbed, stored and then released by the citizen eco drive to power the watch.

Dials - The dial on eco drive watches is made from ceramic or a special plastic. This allows the light sensitive panel that is hidden in eco drive watches to absorb enough light to power the watch.

Light sensitive panel - In eco drive watches there is a light sensitive photo electric cell hidden right underneath the dial. This panel converts light into electrical energy even in low light. A few minutes of winters dayligh provides enough energy to run a eco drive watch for a day.

Secondary Battery - The energy that is produced is stored in a lithium battery and then released as necessary to run the eco drive watch. This battery will allow the eco drive watch to run for up to 6 months in complete darkness before it will stop working.

Nice watch,might treat myself :>)

A good endorsement, cheers moob:thumbsup:

I'll second that - I've had one for about 4 years, and my wife has 3 - excellent technology that just seems to work ...

Not as good as waveceptor solar watches though - you won't get the same level of accuracy from this (if that's important to you)

Nice watch. I'm very tempted. Heat addded. :thumbsup:
