Review of Citizen Eco-Drive Alarm Perpetual Calendar Watch BL8050-56E BL8050

The perpetual calendar watches are some of the most amazing time pieces that the world has ever seen. They have a memory in the watch of 1,461 days. That is four years including a leap year. This is incredible, and most of the nice watches will not have to be reset, till 2100, only because the Gregorian Calendar stipulates that there will be no leap year in 2100. There are many faces of perpetual calendar watches. These make great looking watches.

The other really cool style for perpetual calendar watches are the retrograde systems. They are very appealing to the eye, and some even have the old classic jump hour feature as well. Some watches like the A. Lange & Sohne Perpetual Calendar watch have the time on side and the day of the week on the other side.

This Citizen Eco-Drive Alarm Perpetual Calendar watch is a solar-powered watch that contains a solar cell in its face that drives the watch by converting light energy into electrical energy. It is also equipped with numerous functions including a perpetual calendar that changes the date automatically (changes the number of years from the most recent leap year, month, date and day automatically until February 28, 2100 including leap years), a daily alarm that can be set based on a 24 hour clock, and a local time function that enables setting of time differences in one hour units. A secondary battery is used in this watch to store electrical energy. This secondary battery is a clean energy battery that does not contain mercury or other toxic substances. Once fully charged, the watch will continue to run for about 1.5 years without additional charging.

This watch has a power save feature. When power generation stops as a result of light not shining on the solar cell during the time (TME) or local time (L-TM) mode, the power save feature is activated and the second hand stops at the 0 seconds position to save power. This watch is equipped with four modes consisting of a time, calendar, alarm and local time mode.
