Not sure where to post this but here goes.
I have a Citizen big date eco-drive watch that I like very much. It has stopped running (lots of light: hasn't run in months). Before I send it to Citizen for repair is there a repair source among the folks that frequent this forum?
I don't think it is a mechanical problem as the watch has not been mishandled in any way. Power source??
Number on back of case E310-S045282
Thanks in advance for your help.

Looks like it's dead.

Thanks very much for the suggestions. I did a zero reset, no reaction whatsoever. I think the capacitor or whatever power source this watch employs has gone on to its reward.
Any suggestions regarding a repair facility, or is Citizen the most logical?
Thanks again

For Citizen in Torrance, CA, battery (not capacitor) changes, pressure test and new back gasket in Aqualands cost me ~$50 including all shipping and I've had good luck with them. I would recommend calling Citizen Customer Service in Torrance, they may be able to provide a rough estimate. I've also heard good things of Hurley Roberts in Georgia, but have no experience with them. Let us know how it goes.
