Does my Citizen Watch have a capacitor?

I took my Echo Drive Citizen Watch for a battery replacement. When I got to the store, the guy told me that my watch didn't use a battery, I was told it uses a capacitor instead. By the way, it costs $65. Does anybody know if this is true or am I getting ripped off?

Thanks

The Citizen Eco drive watch has a capacitor in it to store energy from a solar cell. The solar cell charges the capacitor to run the watch. The capacitor will run the watch for up to 6 months without light. The link below shows a short clip on the Eco Drive and how it works.
