And... What do you have to do after the 6, 7 or 10 years?
Well the are powered by light so nothing but keep it in the light from time to time.
Ok. Thanks CatsTide... I've thinking on getting an Eco Drive ... Eventually... Saving money...
They start out at around 100 bucks.
Well, that's good to know. Unfortunately I like other models too, which cost beyond that... Which is sad...
I'll save money to get one and, one of these days I'll post a pic in this "Watcha Wearing: Part II !!" thread.
I know it's only a homage. But god I love this thing.

Just got this back from the repair centre, something with the movement went wrong. It's nice to have it back after 4 weeks away.

Sorry, but that's not true. Average lifespan of a Citizen Eco-Drive tends to be around 10 or 12 years. Though some have mentioned having to replace the rechargeable battery as soon as 5 years. Plus, the battery losses its ability to hold a charge compared to when it was brand new. Doesn't lose it completely, but can't hold the charge from a light source for as long as it used to.
Replacement batteries can be bought off eBay. Or the watch can be mailed back to Citizen (in Japan) for a battery replacement. It's been about 4 years and my Eco-Drive BM7080-03E model is going strong for daily wear that entire time.

Correct for any solar powered watch I believe, I can confirm on my Casio anyway. (Just not the part about mailing it to Citizen )
This will be most noticeable a few years into the watches life if you live in a cold climate that forces you to wear heavy coats. The watch suddenly starts to lose its charge since it isn't getting the sun exposure it was getting through the summer.
That reminds me to start looking for a new watch My 12(?) year old casio was a bit of a pain to keep charged last winter and will only be worse this time around. It looks its age and I'm in the mood for something new and shiny
