Many of Citizen's mainstream models are now Eco-Drive. So yes it is a quartz, eco-drive uses a solar panel under the dial to charge a capacitor (similar to a battery, but you don't have to replace it, hypothetically). Some models have longer power reserves than others, some being over a year if memory serves me correctly. I believe the Stiletto, when fully charged can hold 180 days of energy.

Well yes it is quartz but Eco-Drive powered instead of a conventional battery. It will run about 180 days in no light at all

Cheers
