Embrace the effortless style that comes with a Citizen Eco-Drive watch. Imaging never having to worry about winding a watch or making sure it has a functional battery.

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.

Top Customer Reviews
Again,Citizen Men's BL5405-59E Eco-Drive Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Watch I am very happy with the watch and would reccomend it as a reasonable priced watch that looks like it cost a lot more.
It's a very solid watch with a quality feel and smooth operation. It is nice and weighty, being stainless steel, but not overly heavy in my opinion. It is also large, but having the E6B (slide rule) ring behind the crystal makes it look smaller than other Citizen models (Skyhawk etc) with an outer rotating bezel, with the added advantage of protecting the numbers from wear.
I find the character of the watch totally changes depending on ambient light. In full light all functions are fully visible, often to the point of making the hour and minute hands harder to pick out at a glance, whereas in lower light we focus on the core timekeeping function as the hands and hour markings pop out much more, continuing into total darkness thanks to the luminous markings.
I didn't have any problems with setting it up, unlike some other reviewers who found it overly complicated. I've also seen some people complain that the adjustment knob for the E6B (at the 8 o'clock position) is hard to use right-handed, but I find that merely running my finger along the front edge of the knob works perfectly, so no issue there either. Using the crown to change functions without taking off the watch is a bit trickier, I agree.
There are a few things to bear in mind, however; not necessarily negatives, but things that are not apparent from seeing the watch online only. First, the date is hard to read, between the choice of font and the fact that the date window is not only small but also recessed rather deeply, so that under many lighting conditions the date is shadowed and illegible. Secondly, the contours of the 3 subdials have a mirror-like finish which glints in the light, both making this less-subdued than one would expect from a black model and distracting the eye when taking a quick peek at the watch for the time.
