Product Description

Keep track of everything from the hour to the current month--and all that comes in between--with the smartly constructed Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Calibre 8700 Stainless Steel Sport Watch. This solar-powered Eco-Drive watch never needs a battery and remains charged for months at a time, even in the dark. The distinguished brown tones of this watch begin with the round dial, adorned with three chronograph subdials, two of which are uniquely shaped--one in a crescent shape, the other like a paper-fan. These subdials overlay a unique textured background and are surrounded by a border of silver-tone Roman hour indexes. The outermost dial is two-tiered with a frame of second markers, marked in Arabic numerals in five-second increments, then continuing with another frame marked with the 12 months. The intricate dial is held by a durable stainless steel case and bezel, which connect to a wide stainless steel dial that features both matte and polished finishes and a handy double-locking, fold-over clasp. Boasting a durable mineral window and the reliability of Japanese-quartz movement, this classy contemporary timepiece is water resistant to 330 feet (100 M).

Summary of Features:

  • Retrograde perpetual calendar
  • Alarm
  • Dual time
  • Non-reflective mineral crystal

Since its foundation in 1930, CITIZEN has promoted a multi-cultural mindset that fosters excellence and creativity. The very name of the brand conveys a deep respect toward craftsmanship and considered as familiar by citizens the world-over. So as a “citizen” of the world, we bear the responsibility to help cultivate a culture of positive change and on-going evolution through our craft. We take that mission seriously and steadfastly welcome what the future may bring.

As a true manufacture d’horlogerie, CITIZEN integrates a comprehensive manufacturing process from creating individual components to a watch’s final assembly. It’s an artisan’s approach to watch making based on pushing forward the boundaries of technology and leveraging our experience toward exploring new possibilities.

One pivotal technological breakthrough was the development of a light-driven watch. CITIZEN pioneered this engineering innovation well ahead of other watch manufacturers as early as 1976, which led to the launch of the highly acclaimed Eco-Drive in 1995. Utilizing electrical power converted from virtually any light source, this extraordinary innovation changed forever the way watches could be powered. Eco-Drive eliminated the need to ever replace batteries, which made it especially beneficial to areas where such specialist batteries were not obtainable. This leveled the field for citizens of virtually every country to be able to experience unrestricted joy of wearing and using a CITIZEN watch.

The product development policy, “The Fusion of Technology and Beauty,” remains a constant motivation for us to merge cutting-edge technology with perfection of design beauty, which as a consequence inspires people to strive to be their best at any time.

CITIZEN launches a new campaign in collaboration with Wieden+Kennedy, Better Starts Now. This is the simple belief that no matter who you are or what you do, it is always possible to make something better — and now is the time to start doing it. We believe that better and now are both infinite, and that there is always a next ‘better’ and a new ‘now’ in which you can start pursuing it. It was clear from the onset of this project that we are dedicated to this ideal…not to the past but to the present, and all the way we can improve it. To help communicate this belief to the world we have created a new global CITIZEN brand movie, brand identity and brand website that represents out Better Starts Now philosophy.

    I bought this for my husband as a Christmas present and he fell in love! The size, weight, and overall beauty of this watch was more than I expected. If he ever wants another watch it will DEFINATELY be a Citizen and Amazon offered the best price, so I will buy on line again.

    Hello. I was searching around amazon and randomly saw this watch and saw that while it had great reviews from everyone, none really went into detail or were giving this watch as a present. I rarely give my own reviews but for this I knew I just had to.

    I received this watch as a graduation present from my parents over four years ago as I always need to know the time and this is still by far the best watch I have ever owned or even seen. I worked on machines in a factory for a while so I was pretty rough on my poor watch and I was surprised to find that after so long the only damage to it is a grand total of two very small but noticeable scratches on the crystal and instead of the two different patterns on the band, the whole thing is polished to an admittedly scratchy shine.
    5) My watch came free with a lifetime fix-it plan, no questions asked, should anything go wrong or be damaged so hopefully when I'm a rich old man living life to its fullest, this watch will be there by my side... literally.

    Pros: 1) No changing of batteries! that is perhaps the best part about it as if you ever get even the slightest twinge of thinking that its low on power (as I usually work in dark places only to go home and sleep in a dark room) then you just set it on the windowsill for a couple of hours and voila, no need to worry.
    2) The crystal is as scratch resistant as I have ever found in a watch. While the surrounding metal is very scratched up from years of abuse, the crystal only has two noticeable scratches that can only be seen if looking for them.
    3) The only calendar I use anymore.

    A really good watch!

    Very smart watch that stops the second hand when in dark. Don't get me wrong, the watch will still keep correct time. The moment you shine light on it, the second hand will sweep around to get to the right position and start its quartz movement!! I seriously want to be that inventor who thought about not wasting battery power by moving the second hand when there is no light! No wonder this thing can run 6yrs with no light!

    It keeps Time Calendar (Month!), Alarm and Local Time. Local Time for a second time from another time zone. The only complaint I have is the world time keeper (Local Time) adjustment only advances by 1 hour. The time adjustment is electronic, I click of the adjustment knob moves the hands by one hour. So if you want to keep time for a country that has got say +0:30 or +0:45, not going to happen! The option is to use time to track world time and use local time to track time. Just make sure you leave the setting at Local Time.
