Product Description

Catch the light of the moon with the mixed silver and gold tones of the Citizen Eco-Drive Calibre 8651 men's stainless steel watch with link bracelet band. It features a delightfully illustrated lunar phase indicator that will keeps track of the moon as it waxes and wanes through its 29-1/2 day cycle around the earth. The watch case smoothly integrates into the stainless steel bracelet band, which combines square links in brushed silver and polished gold-tone finishes.

It has a round, silver stainless steel case that's topped by a flattened gold-tone bezel that frames a white dial background. The dial face also offers two subdials (for day of the week and month), stick markers in gold-tone, and Dauphine luminous hands (with seconds hand) featuring a gold outline. It also has a special month indicator hand that points to a silvery gray exterior dial with monthly 31-day notation. Other features include a screw-back case, screw-down crown, scratch resistant mineral crystal with anti-reflective coating, and water resistance to 100 meters (330 feet).

This watch is powered by Citizen's unique Eco-Drive, which absorbs sunlight and any artificial 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. This watch's Eco-Drive provides a 180-day power reserve, and it can be recharged with just 4 hours of exposure to light.

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.

Warranty
It's backed by Citizen's 5-year warranty (from original date of purchase).

About Citizen
One of the world's largest watch makers, the Citizen Watch Company was founded in 1924 in Japan from its beginnings as the Shokosha Watch Research Institute. The first watch released by the company was named "CITIZEN" and its name was selected so that it would be "close to the hearts of people everywhere." Today, Citizen is recognized as a worldwide leader in advanced timepiece technology, from the world's slimmest LCD watch to the first voice recognition watch to the world's first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor. Citizen was also the first to sell watches made with titanium in the world, which is not only light and durable but also non-allergenic (as stainless steel can be to some wearers). Most recently, Citizen has released watches powered by its Eco-Drive, which runs continuously in any kind of natural light or artificial light for a lifetime of use without changing a battery.

The company was established in 1924. The founding fathers selected the name Citizen so it would be ""Close to the Hearts of People Everywhere"" and soon after adopted the company’s formal name, Citizen Watch Company.

During the last seventy-five years Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and has achieved recognition as the global brand. The past twenty-five year period has coincided with the company’s dramatic rise to its current position as the world’s largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held every year since 1986.

Beyond sheer size, Citizen is also recognized as a worldwide leader in advanced technology. From the world’s slimmest LCD watch to the first voice recognition watch and the world’s first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor, Citizen’s record of ""world’s firsts"" is unmatched.

More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in timekeeping with its Eco-Drives watches that are light powered. With models ranging from dress models to sports models to professional dive watches, Citizen Eco-Drive runs continuously in any kind of natural or artificial light for a lifetime of use. Fueled by light, it never needs a battery.

    This new calibre from Citizen is available in at least six variations, "Classic" case (straight lugs) or "Contemporary" case (curved lugs) in stainless, two-tone, or goldtone. This review applies to the "Contemporary" two-tone. For a production watch fit and finish are excellent. The bracelet has five cross links with solid end links providing a comfortable tracking of your wrist shape. The clasp is single deployment fold-over with a dual button release (no accidental deployment possible). The case is of contemporary curved lug shape with a one step bezel. The bezel and sides are high polish while the lugs are brush finish. The bezel is gold in the two-tone. The mineral crystal is flat and merges cleanly with the main bezel. The two crowns are of conventional size. Both crowns are gold in the two-tone.

    The three o'clock crown is a "screw down" and acts as a lockable sleeve for the month adjustment pusher. The four o'clock crown pulls out in the conventional manner. In position one, the moon phase is set via clockwise rotation and the day-of-month is set via counter-clockwise rotation. In the second position the time of day and day of week are simultaneously set by clockwise rotation. See instruction manual for correct sync of day, date, and time functions.

    The dial is a translucent "ivory" tone to my eye. The inner dial has an attractive scalloped sunray texture. The outer chapter ring contains the day of month register (1 to 31) in black font on a satin silver-gray background. The next innermost chapter ring has applied bold ouline stick markers with luminova (or equivalent) fill at the hour positions (gold outline in two-tone) and normal black stick markers at the minute positions.

    The day of week register at 9 o'clock has a black stick hand which is easily read.

    I have added pictures of this watch as the one placed by amazon comes no where close to demonstrating the beauty of this time piece.

    I checked this out at several local places and I found the discounted street price to be right at $400. Great buy here on amazon.

    As I noticed a very good and well written review already published I will point out a few things I do not believe were mentioned. First, Citizen gives you a full 5 years of warranty on this watch. Second, I have four other moon phase watches and none have the ease of setting this piece has. In that light I would also mention along with your manual you receive a DVD that can be run in a player or computer that will have you setting all functions and wearing your watch in about 10 minutes.

    Lastly, If you view the pictures I have posted you will find the calendar functions very much different than you find on other watches. This will make your time piece distinctively different than others.

    At $300 or less this watch is a bargain. At the today's stated price of $225 it is a best buy! I rate this time piece at fully 5 stars and I highly recommend it!

    I am also very fond of moonphase watches, and have several, but this one, AP1024-56P from Citizen is magnificient.
    Accurate, easy to view, light, no need for batteries (Eco-Drive).
    It has also day, date, and month arms. Especially the date, encircled with a red crescent, is very easy to read. What else you expect ?
    This is a grand-complication watch, which you pay at least 6,000 USD
    for the mechanical equivalents (and they don't go accurate).
    This watch, can also be more easily seen in dark, as the hour marks are also luminous, apart from the hour & minute hands.
    I wish it would be Perpetual Calendar for few bucks more ...
    Do not hesitate a second. There is no equivalent to it. Excellent value for money. - Enjoy! - Ergun Talu

    This Eco-Drive Watch is practial and professional. The moon phase
    set is tricky, however once set it's a real assist to the watch
    face. I believe a 5 score is modist, however well deserved.

    I have owned several Citizen watches. They have all been accurate, reliable, and attractive. The EcoDrive is a high-tech wonder. The watch never needs a battery. The EcoDrive is charged with light.

    This watch is easy to read. I just love it. I'm not sure how much my wife paid for it. Hopefully, not retail.

    I higly recommend this watch for anyone looking for a high quality analog watch.
