Sparkling with style and 24 diamonds, the Citizen EW0480-50A women's stainless steel watch is distinctly elegant and feminine. It's also powered by Citizen's unique Eco-Drive, which absorbs sunlight and any artifical light through the crystal and dial to recharge the watch continuously. With regular exposure to light, the Eco-Drive continuously recharges itself for a lifetime of use. The round silver stainless steel watch case measures less than an inch wide and sits demurely on your wrist. It is highlighted by 24 tiny diamonds encrusted in the bezel. The case smoothly tapers down to join the brushed stainless steel link bracelet, which is joined by push-button butterfly clasp. The shimmery white dial includes a mix of square dial markers and Roman numerals, thin silver hands (with second hand), and a date function at 3 o'clock. Other features include Japanese quartz movement, water resistance to 30 meters (100 feet), and Citizen's 5-year warranty.
Eco-Drive Frequently Asked Questions How can you tell if the Eco-Drive watch is getting enough light? In normal use, the watch displays the time and the sweep-second hand moves in one second intervals. A very important feature of Eco-Drive is the Low Charge Warning Mode which as a result of low battery voltage, causes the second hand to jump two seconds at a time (while still keeping correct time).
How long will an Eco-Drive watch run after it is fully charged? If your watch is put away where no light is available to it while in a fully charged state, depending on the model, it will run for from 45 days to 5 years.
How can the Eco-Drive watch be recharged? Besides sunlight, it can be safely charged by exposing it to a fluorescent desk lamp, with the dial (face) up and within about 8 inches or an incandescent lamp (regular light bulb) no closer than 20 inches. Never use a halogen lamp since the heat generated by it can cause damage to your watch. The most efficient and the quickest is in direct bright sunlight (not windowsill) and never on the dashboard of a car.
