This^^ Plus it's been sub £70 not long ago...no time machine bs please!
Too big, again!
Quality watch for really good price
I really do like Citizen watches and I’ve collected ten Eco Drives over recent years including the basic eco models as well as radio controlled variants. Since the definitive Citizen selling point is the Eco Drive movement I am really struggling to see the point of having a Citizen without this feature, bearing in mind the price point on this is (more or less) within the the eco drive range. I’d also have to say that this particular model is typical of the Citizen’s made and sold exclusively for Argos (with the odd retailer exception). If it’s non eco then it’s Chinese made. Citizen Eco Drive movements are only made in Japan.

I would agree that a non eco-drive is pointless. I would also go into Argos and ask to see it in person as even the occasional eco-drive model that I have looked at previously have been light and cheap feeling (relatively), especially the bracelet. However, similar, but more expensive models in jewellers felt better.
Another vote for Eco Drive (though I prefer Seiko solar to Citizen). Presumably, though, there's a rechargeable battery in there somewhere for both these watches that will need replacing at some point.
Every christmas they aslways have an eco drive for just under £100 at argos.
Eco-drive watches - yes they do have a rechargeable battery (I think some sort of capacitor) and despite Citizen's claim that they 'never need a battery' these power units do fail. My best Citizen eco-drive watch (I have five) stopped charging a few months ago. Sent it back to Citizen's UK repair centre to be fixed only to be told they do not stock the part. So that watch is effectively now an expensive bracelet! I will not be buying Citizen again.

That’s bad, how old was it
All these apparently battery-free watches involve a capacitor and/or rechargeable battery which inevitably fail and need replacing after a while. And when that happens it's pretty expensive - unless you do it yourself. The battery's around the £20 mark but a jeweller would probably charge around £50 all-in.

It does make you wonder whether there's much point to kinetic and solar!
Voted hot as it does look like a handsome watch!

I had the same problem a few years ago. My eco-drive stopped working after 6 years and should work forever. Went to shop for repair and had quote worth 80% of watch value. Today I grabbed this one from Argos. Look really good, nice weigh and size so can really recommend for his price.

That's the problem with all kinetic and solar watches - people think they'll last forever, but they don't. They need replacement rechargeable batteries or capacitors, and they're considerably more than a new battery
