    Thrift store Eco-Drive

    With mostly junk quartz watches anymore at the trift stores with drained batteries, I saw this one was running and priced at $12.95. I thought it was a bargain at that price and I feel like I could maybe get as much as fifty bucks out of it if I ever get around to selling stuff again. Ain't nothing like JD's been hauling in, but one I just couldn't pass up and I thought it was a nice looker also. I've never owned a Citizen Eco-Drive before, so I guess I'll see if it keeps running on sun or artificial light as they claim.

    Thatís a great find at a great price. These watches donít have batteries but rechargeable capacitors. Some are solar and others have a rotor .

    This ones kinda slim, so its probably solar. Pretty unique practical design these Eco Drives are. Heck I always thought they had a backup battery.
