Citizen’s Eco-Drive Watches Review

This Valentine’s Day, a new Eco-Drive watch from Citizen would make a great impression on your loved one. Powered by Citizen’s proprietary “Eco-Drive Technology”, this revolutionary signature collection of watches converts any source of light (both natural and artificial) into useable energy.

With a line of the highest quality, functional and stylish Eco-Drive watches for both men and women, Citizen’s has elevated the wrist watch to new levels. When my Eco-Drive watch is fully charged it will run continuously for up to six months and by properly maintaining it I won’t ever need another battery again.

Citizen Eco-Drive watches for men are a wonderful gift idea, especially the Eco-Drive Perpetual Chrono A-T ($575) which features atomic time and is radio controlled in five time zones! My husband has several atomic clocks in our home so he was thrilled to learn that Citizen has an atomic wrist watch available in the Eco-Drive collection. This watch also features a 1-second chronograph measuring up to 60 minutes, a perpetual calendar and it is water resistant up to 200 meters.

When purchasing a new Eco-Drive watch for your sweetie, why not treat yourself as well to the Ladies’ Citizen Eco-Drive Silhouette Crystal Bangle ($200). This watch is stunning as it features dazzling Swarovski® crystals in the bezel setting and it is feminine and sophisticated. I appreciate that it is water-resistant and the Eco-Drive technology makes this my favorite watch in my jewelry collection.

It was very easy to set the watch into working motion by using natural sunlight (you can also use an artificial light source). I wear my watch on a regular basis so any time it is exposed to a light source it automatically recharges itself.

The men’s Eco-Drive Perpetual Chrono A-T is available for purchase at Zales and the ladies’ Citizen Eco-Drive Silhouette Crystal Bangle can be purchased at Helzberg Diamonds.

You are invited to visit the Citizen’s website to learn more about all of the Eco-Drive watches and to find the perfect fit watch for you or a loved one this Valentine’s Day!
