With Eco-Drive technology, Citizen's original photovoltaic technology that does not require periodic battery replacement, the watch is moved by converting sunlight and a small amount of light in the room into electricity, and the surplus electricity is stored in the secondary battery. Once fully charged, it will continue to move for long periods of time even in the absence of light.
In addition, neither battery replacement nor time adjustment is required. The error is received on a standard radio wave based on an atomic clock that is said to be 1 second in 100,000 years, and the time and calendar are automatically corrected. Advanced technology that catches the exact time while eco-driving.
With the Citizen Collection family, the watch wearer can go straight to the world in 2 steps. Pull the crown around the world multi-station world time function to select a city. With just these two steps, the hands and discs move and the world city time and calendar display starts instantly. You can enjoy the advanced functions that Citizen is proud of, along with the operational feeling that you would expect from an analog watch.
What’s more, as magnetism and shock are the main causes of incorrect operation of the watch, the Collection family uses Perfex which an advanced technology that reduces these effects. By integrating the three functions of “JIS class 1 magnetic resistance,” “impact detection function,” and “automatic hand correction function," it is possible to display the time more accurately.
