Precise. Comfortable and ecological. Not very light, certainly robust. Citizen is a technologically valuable watch, beautiful and eco.
What is Eco.Drive technology and how does it work?
It’s a mini power system that captures and accumulates light, giving the watch many months of autonomy. No more battery changes, therefore, with undoubted advantages. The dials of Eco-Drive watches are designed to let light through. The light energy is captured by a small photovoltaic panel of sufficient power to ensure a lasting power reserve.
On the market are models for men and women (EcoLady), chrono, with perpetual calendar and moon phases, several radio-controlled models attached to the atomic clock in Frankfurt, and even a line (Aqualand) with more sophisticated technical solutions dedicated to diving enthusiasts.
The advantages of wearing a Citizen Eco.Drive watch
Photovoltaic technology guarantees respect and defence of the environment. It is a symbol that works perpetually and is very comfortable to wear on the wrist.
It also enshrines the definitive abandonment of disposable batteries, which, although small and thinking of the millions of people who keep a watch on their wrist, can create damage to the environment.
