Default Eco drive charge/cell question

Hi all got a package from Raymond today - arrived at work so I opened it up - one was a eco drive dress watch that I was not really interested in ...but I gave it a quick wipe over and popped the back on
It came without a cell
well its 2 second ticking - thought I was seeing things- would this lead one to suspect that with a new cell its should be ok??

My understanding of the Eco drive is, the cell is a secondary power supply, the primary power supply is the solar panel which runs the movement and at the same time charges the cell, in the absence of light the movement runs off of the cell.
