  • *1. Eco-Drive is CITIZEN’s proprietary technology that powers watches using any natural or artificial light source, eliminating the need to replace batteries. Certified as an Eco Mark product for the first time in the watch industry.
  • *2. As of February 2018. Surveyed by CITIZEN.
  • *3. Duratect is surface hardening technology exclusively developed by CITIZEN to maintain the luster and beautiful finish of watches. Treating materials such as titanium and stainless steel with this technology improves the hardness of the material’ s surface, making watch cases and bands resistant to scratches.
    Duratect DLC achieves Vickers hardness of 1,000-1,400 by coating an amorphous carbon hard film—mainly composed of carbon and hydrogen—on the surface of the material.
  • *4. Light Level Indicator shows how much power the watch is generating through CITIZEN’s proprietary Eco-Drive technology. Cal. W770 detects the volume of light the dial is receiving and shows how much power the watch is generating on a daily, weekly or monthly basis as a graph on the linked smartphone.
  • *5. Power reserve indicator displays the remaining power of the secondary battery used for Eco-Drive.
