Citizen Eco-Drive Watches at H.Samuel
The Citizen Eco-Drive system marks a revolutionary point in watch technology. Featuring the Citizen 5 Year Guarantee and a light powered system that can be charged continuously from any light source, the Eco-Drive system is not only a technological advance in watch making, but it is also friendly to the environment as it doesn't use batteries
Light Powered Technology
Citizen pioneered light-powered technology and now with advanced, award winning technology it is the top mid-priced watch brand in the UK. The Citizen Eco-Drive watch absorbs sunlight and artificial light through the dial and converts this into electrical energy in order to power the watch. With regular exposure to light, the Eco-Drive watches continuously recharge themselves for a lifetime of use. The Citizen Eco-Drive's revolutionary lithium-ion rechargeable cell stores enough energy to power the watch for up to an amazing 7 years (depending on the model). As a result, your Citizen Eco-Drive watch will never need to have a battery changed, simply put it on and wear it with confidence.
Citizen is a pioneer in Radio-Controlled Atomic Timekeeping. Atomic clocks use the vibrations of atoms for extreme precision. These clocks then send out radio waves which transmit the exact time to your watch.
Satellite Timekeeping System
Citizen's innovative Satellite Timekeeping System is the ultimate in accuracy. This advanced timekeeping system gathers information from the closest orbital satellite circling the earth, capturing day, date and time signals before beaming them directly back to your watch.
