As most people do, you probably had one or two watches that you absolutely love, but the battery has run out sometime. What did you do with it? Did you forget to put it in the drawer? Or is it buried somewhere in the underground box? You may not have time to take it to a jewelry store to change the battery. The old watch may be just a relic of time. But what if you say there is a company that designs watches that never dry out? Is there a way to find a stunning watch that you will like and never have to worry about the cost and inconvenience of replacing the battery again? Is there a watch that doesn't need to be plugged in to charge? No, it is not a dream. This wonderful technology really exists! This is called Eco Drive and can only be used with products from the Citizen Eco Drive Watch Line.
Eco-driving is the process that Citizen watches use to make use of energy from all types of light sources, whether artificial or natural. Energy is stored in a rechargeable lithium-ion cell. Lithium-ion cells can be charged continuously and operate forever. Just imagine for a moment-a watch that really lasts a lifetime. According to Citizen Watch Co, the Citizen Eco Drive watch line has eliminated over 10 million batteries in North America alone. This is great news for the environment and a bold step towards reducing pollution.
Introduced to the world in 1996, these watches have made many technological advances compared to other solar watches available at the time. This state-of-the-art technology eliminates the need for large, conspicuous power cells and has selected a sophisticated and elegant design. The concept of these watches was the Eco-Drive caliber 7788 movement. This allowed the solar cell to be installed under the dial. It is sufficiently translucent that the light will pass through to power it and charge the battery. They can operate up to 180 days with secondary (stored) energy before they need to be recharged by exposure to light. If the light is deprived for a long time, some models go to sleep and the watch hands stop moving, but the internal quartz movement keeps track of the time accurately. When finally exposed to light, the hand moves to the correct position and resumes timing as normal. In other words, if you put the watch in the drawer and leave it for three months, take it out and expose it to light, the correct time will be displayed immediately.
According to Citizen Watches reports, experiments have shown that solar and secondary batteries used in Eco-Drive watches last up to 10 years. They further stated that the lubricants used in the assembly of these watches are made to help the life because the oil will not cure or evaporate for more than 20 years.
