    Does Eco-Drive work well?

    Thinking about getting a nice, knock around sports watch. Saw a nice Eco-drive. Is that a good system?

    I have 2 eco-drives. One is about 12 years old, a 36mm diver, the other maybe 7, a casual chrono. The older one is back on action after being worn and beat on for 5 years, then shoved in a drawer for the next 7 or so. It's running +1second a month. The newer one, the chrono, runs about 10 seconds per day slow, but it's seen 6 years of daily use where it never skipped a beat. I would say they're great watches.

    They're the best quartzes for the money. Some of the higher end ones are just the best quartzes in general. And now that they have an eco-drive A660 version coming out, it'll probably be the best quartz ever made.

    Here's my favorite one:

    The Eco Drive is a great system. I have their AT0200 field chrono and I have put it through quite a lot with no problems whatsoever.

    I have four Eco-Drives. Two of them are chronographs. They all work flawlessly and are very accurate. They are also four of the nicest looking watches I own. I highly recommend them. You cannot go wrong. They are also priced right.

    If you are searching for just about the most bullet proof system there is, then the eco drive is the one for you. They just keep going, and going, and going......

    It is an excellent system for recharging the watch battery. Very reliable and all it needs is light. Citizen has been particularly successful at masking the solar cell and the dials look like those found on a non-solar watch. Go for it and post a picture.
