COMING AT YOU IS THIS ULTRA SUAVE1965 21 JEWEL CITIZEN ALARM WATCH WITH STUNNING MERLOT DIAL. 

 

  • CASE: HEFTY SOLID STEEL CLASSIC IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.   THIS BEAUTY MEASURES A FORMIDABLE 38mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL DOUBLE CROWNS BY 46mm LUG TO LUG. THIS IS THE MORE RARE FLAT BEZEL VERSION WHICH I THINK HAS A VERY SOPHISTICATED LOOK WITH THOSE BOMBE LUGS. CASE IS IN EXCELLENT UNPOLISHED ORIGINAL CONDITION WITH SOME MINOR HAIRLINES AND SOME LIGHT DINGS ON THE UPPER RIGHT LUG. OVERALL, THIS THING IS IN SUPER SHARP CONDITION. THIS CLASSIC REALLY WEARS NICE AND LARGE WITH THOSE BIG PROPORTIONS AND THAT THIN BEZEL/WIDE DIAL.

 

  • DIAL: THIS SILVER MATTE DIAL IS A TOTAL LOOKER.  CHECK OUT THOSE STRIKING APPLIED FACETED STEEL MARKERS.  DIAL IS IN GREAT CONDITION WITH SOME MILD TONING AROUND THE PERIPHERY WHICH GIVES THIS ONE A VINTAGE APPEAL. CHECK OUT THOSE BOLD STEEL DAUPHINE HANDS WHICH ARE JUST PERFECTLY PROPORTIONED FOR THIS DIAL. MY FAVORITE ASPECT OF THIS FACE IS THE OLD-SCHOOL CITIZEN CURSIVE FONT. I LOVE THAT MASSIVE CYCLOPS OVER THE DATE WINDOW ON THAT ORIGINAL CRYSTAL. THIS WAS ONE OF CITIZEN'S BEST DESIGNS, IN MY OPINION.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS BUZZ PACKING JAPANESE MODEL IS POWERED BY A CITIZEN 21 JEWEL MANUAL WIND ALARM MOVEMENT.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME. ALARM FUNCTIONS GREAT. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT WATCH HAS BEEN BEHAVING AMAZINGLY FOR WEEKS OF ON/OFF WRIST OBSERVATION. 

 

  • THIS CITIZEN IS MOUNTED ON A HANDSOME RUST COLORED SUEDE STRAP WHICH LOOKS EXTRA SPORTY ON THIS ONE.  THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST LOOKING CITIZENS I'VE RUN ACROSS. THE WORD ON THESE MODELS HAS STARTED TO SPREAD OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS, AND THESE ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY MORE COLLECTIBLE AND SOUGHT AFTER. THIS IS A SUPERB SPECIMEN. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING WITH VINTAGE CHARM THAT WEARS NICE AND BEEFY, THIS IS A GREAT OPTION.
