Recharging your basic analog Eco-Drive timepiece 8826 Movement.
Getting Started with Eco-Drive
(Does not apply to conventional battery operated models)
Your new Eco-Drive timepiece is specially powered by proprietary ECO-DRIVE TECHNOLOGY,
which converts any source of light (natural and artificial) into usable energy. The harnessed energy
is then stored in a special power reserve to keep your timepiece charged and running properly.
When fully charged, your Eco-Drive will continue running - even in total darkness- for at least six
(6) months. Properly maintained, it will never need another battery.
If you wear your new Citizen Eco-Drive timepiece on a regular basis, recharging will be virtually
automatic as regular exposure to light will keep your power reserve unending.
Recharge times will vary based on your timepiece and the type of light utilized. Direct sunlight is
the fastest, most efficient light source for recharging. Recharging information for your basic analog
timepiece can be found on page 4 of this booklet. For other models, please refer to your specific
instruction booklet or the technical support section of our web site at
If you plan to store your Citizen Eco-Drive in the dark, you should do this for no more than six (6)
months. After this extended period of time, you should ensure that your timepiece is exposed to
bright light for the full recharge period as outlined in the recharge guide on page 4 in order to return
your timepiece to a full charge.
Your Eco-Drive timepiece thrives with regular exposure to light sufficient for charging.
Some circumstances however may prevent your Eco-Drive timepiece from receiving
regular exposure to light sufficient for charging. In these circumstances, you may need
to provide supplemental exposure to light. The chart below outlines general recharging
requirements for your basic analog Eco-Drive timepiece.

After your basic analog Eco-Drive timepiece is fully charged, it will run for a minimum
of six (6) months without further charging.
Overcharge Protection Feature
Your Eco-Drive timepiece features an overcharge prevention system. When the rechargeable cell is fully charged, special circuits engage to prevent it from becoming overcharged. There is no need to worry about exposing your timepiece to “too much” light.
Water Resistance
The water resistant quality of your timepiece is ranked from A to E as outlined in the chart below. Compare the
ranking of your timepiece against the chart to ensure use befitting its water resistant characteristics.

Low Charge Warning
Your basic analog timepiece may feature a low charge warning function to provide a
visual indication that power is running low. If your timepiece features Eco-Drive technology, be sure to immediately recharge it to prevent complete loss of power. If your timepiece is operated by a conventional battery, have the battery replaced by an Authorized
Service Center immediately.

Time Setting Warning (Eco Drive only)
Your basic analog timepiece may feature a time setting warning function. This feature lets
you know the timepiece has commenced operation after a complete discharge of energy
but has not yet been set. This irregular movement will continue until the time is set, even
if the timepiece has been fully charged after a complete discharge.
Special Handling Instructions
1. Conventional Power Cell Replacements (does not apply to Eco-Drive)
Have the battery replaced regularly by an Authorized Citizen Service Center or dealer who will
properly recycle or safely dispose of the expired battery. Expired batteries may leak and cause
damage to the movement of your timepiece. If the battery expires while in your timepiece, have
it replaced immediately.
2. Avoid Temperature Extremes
Three hand models
(hour, minute and second)
The second hand will quickly
advance 2 seconds, then another
2 seconds in a single jump.
Exposing your timepiece to high or low temperatures may adversely affect timekeeping and potentially damage sensitive components. You should never place your timepiece on the dashboard
of your vehicle or wear in a sauna or hot tub. Leaving your timepiece in extreme cold temperatures may cause irregular operation until the timepiece returns to normal operating temperature.
3. Avoid Strong Shocks
Your timepiece will withstand normal shock experienced during normal wear. Take care however not to drop or sharply knock your timepiece against objects.
4. Avoid strong magnetic fields and/or electronics that may emit static electricity.
Two hand models
(hour and minute)
The minute hand quickly advances
three steps rather than in
one-minute increments.
Items such as magnetic bracelets, magnetic coin trays, cell phone speakers, portable speakers,
microwave ovens, televisions and some computer monitors may cause erratic timekeeping.
5. Avoid chemicals and gases
Avoid wearing this timepiece in the presence of chemicals and gases such as some household
cleaners, adhesives, paint, gasoline, benzine, nail polish remover, spray cosmetics including perfumes, or the like as these may cause discoloration, and deterioration of the case and band.

Special Handling Instructions (continued)
6. Keep your timepiece clean
Dry any water and clean any dirt that may adhere to the case, crystal, bracelet and other components with a soft cloth. As a timepiece is worn next to the skin, the band may collect foreign
matter from day to day wear that needs periodic cleaning. If foreign matter is allowed to
accumulate, the case and band may discolor or rust. If your timepiece is exposed to salt water be
sure to rinse it with fresh water otherwise rust may occur. It is particularly important to keep a
mesh type band clean in order to maintain flexibility.
8. Be sure to keep the power cell away from infants or small children. Should accidental
ingestion occur, consult a doctor immediately. Power cells should be properly recycled or
disposed of safely. For additional information, please visit: web site.
Perchlorate material - specially handling may apply. Please refer to
hasardouswaste/perchlorate web site for additional information.
Type: Basic analog timepiece (may be solar powered or conventional battery operated)
It may be necessary to periodically clean the bracelet using a soft brush and a solution of mild
soap and water. Be sure to rinse the bracelet with fresh water after cleaning and then dry with a
soft cloth. Take care to not expose the case of your timepiece to water if your timepiece is not
water resistant.
Timekeeping accuracy: +/- 20 seconds per month when used under normal operating conditions and temperatures (+5oC to +35oC / 41oF to 95oF)
Operating temperature limits: -10oC to 60oC / 14oF to 140oF
7. Periodic Inspection
In order to maintain optimal performance, we recommend periodic inspection of the gaskets,
crown and any push-button on your timepiece every 18 months to two years. This is especially
important for a water resistant model. You may need more frequent checking of the gaskets if
you use your timepiece frequently in salt water or harsh environments.
Average conventional operated model battery life: 2 years
Eco Drive Fully charged to fully discharged power reserve: minimum 6 months. For more
specific information as to your movement caliber, please visit the technical support section of our
web site at:
Should you notice any damage to your timepiece such as a chipped or broken crystal, we recommend sending it immediately to your nearest Authorized Service center for inspection and repair.
This will minimize any consequential damage to other components.
Conventional battery or rechargeable cell: 1 piece
All specifications subject to change without notice.
