Citizen Watches Eco Drive

Citizen watches was founded in in 1930, and ever since the brand has “promoted a multi-cultural mind-set that fosters excellence and creativity”. This brand really does say it in their name when they mean that they create watches that convey craftsmanship for watch enthusiasts globally.

Citizen’s artisan’s approach to watch making pushes forward the limits of technology and creates a new experience toward exploring new possibilities. One innovative breakthrough which has boosted this brands popularity is their development with light-driven watch technology.

Citizen are pioneering in this sector and are well ahead of some of their competitors.  Citizen began looking into eco power from 1976, they continued to and launched the highly acclaimed Eco-Drive in 1995.

Citizen watches can utilize electrical power converted from virtually any light source. Eco watch design is now extremely popular and Citizen helped shape the demand for this type of technology.

The Eco-Drive system eliminated the need to ever replace batteries in that type of watch which makes it a great time piece for those who live or work in areas where it may be difficult to source watch batteries instantaneously.

At the start of the millennium Citizen continued to evolve and race ahead of its competitors with the launch of Stiletto. This was the World’s thinnest light powered watch. This watch was revolutionary in its time for combining eco-drive technology with a refined, sleek and sophisticated case.

Citizen Watch Strap Replacement

If you own a citizen watch with a rubber strap periodic cleaning may be required. It is recommended that you use a soft toothbrush with a mild dish detergent and gentle water. With this mix, you will be able to efficiently clean the inside and outside of your rubber strap.

Once you have completed this step rinse the entirety of the soap residue off of the watch thoroughly dry the strap.

If your watch strap is exposed to salt water, it is advised that you rinse it with clear water as soon as possible. If you are looking to keep your watch strap in best condition, Citizen recommend customers to use a rubber protectant. The drier the strap is kept, the longer it will last.

At Repairs by post, we offer a  Citizen watch strap replacement service, this is recommended to Citizen watch users that wear their time piece daily.

Temperature

Try to avoid your watch being exposed to extreme changes in temperature. Both extreme hot and cold temperatures can damage the functionality of your watch. Your Citizen timepiece may need to be sent away for a watch service if damaged. This may occur is your watch is exposed to temperatures above 60 degrees.

Watch Shocks and Vibrations

Don’t wear your watch during events where it could receive bumps or knocks. This could affect the inner workings of the mechanism and bracelet. Remove your Citizen watch and keep it in a safe place before undertaking any sporting activities or heavy physical work.

Avoid Water and Dust Damage

If you want your watch to stand the test of time it is recommended that you always ensure that the crown, which is used to change the hands/date, is properly pushed in and/or screwed at all times.

If water or dust does manage to infiltrate the inside of your watch it may lead to internal damage.
