Finding Citizen Eco Drive Watch

There’s always something to do and things to see in my daily activities.

First thing to do in my todo list is going to the gym and work out for an hour.

After that I went back home and sat down to put my focus on my next plan.

After shower I spent two hours of working then I decided to head out to run some errands.

Winco was on my first list followed by the Oriental store as some of the vegetables that I am looking for can’t find found on a regular supermarket.

Since I had a big bag of donation that I need to drop at Savers thrift store I went ahead and dropped it.

When I looked at the time it still kind of early and since Rebel is taking a nap so I decided to browse through the aisles.

All of a sudden, I remembered two night ago I saw two watches.  One is Fossil and one is a pocket watch.

However, due to not really conscious of what I did the other night I forgot to buy them.

Hoping it will still be here today I headed to the jewerly section.

Luckily, I still found hte Fossil watch but the pocket watch was gone.

I took sometimes to look at their watches and when I was about to head to another aisle there is this watch that is sitting in the corner so I asked the cashier to gice it to me.

The first thing that I noticed was it was kind of heavy and when I put it in my arm there’s this magnetic feel.

It feels like it blend into my skin.

It was a citizen watch but I did put much thought into it.

When I look at the price of $5.99 I told myself I am just gonna go ahead and figure it out later if it needs a batery or not.

This is not an impulse buy.  It is more of listening to my intuition.

As soon as I got home my curiosity kicks in so I googled the watch.

I was speechless when I disovered this watch worth $300.

What make this Citizen watch expensive?

Apparently, this type of a watch is Eco Drive.

According to…In 1976, they invented the world’s first light-powered analog quartz watch that runs using only light as a power source. This technology, now known as “ECO-DRIVE,” can generate power from any light source — artificial, natural, and even dim light — to keep watches running without ever replacing batteries.

It is a bit loose so my next step is to take it to a jewelry store and let them adjust the wrist.

Talking about surprised treasure hunt which is becoming a part of my thrifting experience .
