Hi there,

Well, I made the plunge and purchased an Citizen EcoZilla....titanium of course! :) It might take some time getting used to enormous size, but we shall see. I think it is much better looking than the Citizen "Orca" that I bought and returned.

The question I have deals with charging the watch. The manual states that direct natural sunlight is the best method and being that I am in Michigan - the sun will not shine till Spring! :)

So what is the next best way to get the system fully charged? Right now I have the watch sitting about 20 inches (per manual) from a 60W bulb - might take a few days huh? Any advice on a better method?

Thanks!

It doesn't take alot to charge it.
It's probably good to go now and just wearing it in various light will keep it going.
Congrats!

Hello,

It is the 300m Citizen Ti Eco-Zilla not the 1000m Ti Auto-Zilla version. The minute hand skips every other sec, so I know it needs charging.

Thanks

Just wear it Brother and in no time it will be a full power workhorse, whatever you do though whilst on full charge , under no circumstance EVER must you feed it after midnight OR play any piano's, apart from that your good to go:-!.

Just wear it and next time you do get a break of Sun, let it bask for a couple of hours.

I have a 8 year old Citizen Largo EcoDrive, I rarely wear it, and it has run continuously since I got it.

I set the solars by the window on occassion to "feed" them, but that's more me being anal than anything else.

Hope you enjoy. Solar is super low maint.

I live in dark and dreary Washington near Seattle where it rains like 9 months of the year and I never have any problems with my "solar" powered watches. My Casio Pro Trek instructions say it takes as little as 5 minutes of direct sunlight and if you live in the office it takes like 6-8 hours of fluorescent lighting to fully charge the puppy. I think you'll be safe even if you are from Michigan (I'm originally from NW Ohio, sorry about the OSU and UofM game). :-!

Seed!! it is indeed a bad omen, you really should have not bought it , so maybe you send it to me as I laugh in the face of omens, thus taking away YOUR bad one:-d:-d

Hey there!

I think it is an omen that I should get the heck out of Michigan and go somewhere warmer with more Sun :)

Besides.....I cannot give the watch away yet....I need to find out how the Zilla affects my golf swing!

Maybe it will help :)
