Whether navigating a business deal or the rough ocean waves in your kayak, make a bold statement with the Citizen Corso BM8080-59M stainless steel men's watch. This large, round watch measures 1.5 inches in diameter and sits prominantly on your wrist. It's 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.
It features a polished stainless steel bezel with scalloped highlights, textured blue dial background, silver dial markers, luminous stick hands (with second hand), and day/date feature at 3 o'clock. The round case is fully integrated into the rounded link bracelet band, which is joined by a push-button, fold-over clasp. Other features include Japanese quartz movement, water resistance to 100 meters (330 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.
