Regular price $465.00 Sale

FEAST YOUR EYES ON THIS SUPER SEXY 1963 CITIZEN AUTO DATER ROOKIE WITH COOL JET-ROTOR MOVEMENT IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH ORIGINAL TAG. 

  • CASE: CLASSY ALL-STEEL ROUND CASE IN EXCELLENT AND UNPOLISHED CONDITION.  THIS BEAUTY MEASURES A NICE 36mm NOT INCLUDING CROWN  I LOVE THOSE EDGY FACETED LUGS WITH REALLY SHARP CHAMFERS WHICH GIVE THIS ONE SOME INTRIGUE. THIS THING WEARS LIKE A MODERN WATCH WITH THAT RELATIVELY LARGE CASE, THIN BEZEL, AND WIDE DIAL.
  • DIAL: SO SIMPLE AND CLASSY. THE BEAUTIFUL SUNBURST SILVER DIAL IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. I LOVE THE OLD SCHOOL CITIZEN CURSIVE FONT WITH THE JAZZY JET LOGO. CHECK OUT THOSE CRAZY LONG DAUPHINE HANDS AND SWEEP SECONDS HAND. JUST WOW!! DATE CAN BE VIEWED THROUGH THE  INTERNAL CYCLOPS ON THAT ORIGINAL CRYSTAL. 
  • MOVEMENT: THIS GUY RUNS ON ONE OF THE FAMOUS CITIZEN JET ROTOR AUTOMATICS WHICH WAS A VERY INNOVATIVE AND WELL CRAFTED MOVEMENT FOR ITS TIME. WITH THE ROTOR MOUNTED ON THE PERIPHERY VERSUS CENTRALLY, THIS ONE IS A COOL DEVIATION FROM THE STANDARD AUTOMATIC. THIS ONE IS THE 17JEWEL VARIANT AND IS IN AMAZING CONDITION AND RUNNING GREAT. STRONG RUNNER AND KEEPING GREAT TIME. MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THIS WAS SERVICED EARLIER THIS YEAR. 

THIS BEAUTY COMES MOUNTED ON A PERIOD APPRORIATE VINTAGE LEATHER STRAP WHICH MAY ACTUALLY BE THE ORIGINAL FOR THIS PIECE. THIS ONE IS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST TO WEAR. THE JET ROTOR MOVEMENTS HAVE A SWOOSH FEEL ON THE WRIST DUE TO THOSE PERIPHERAL MOUNTED ROTOR WEIGHTS. THIS ONE COMES WITH ITS ORIGINAL CITIZEN JET HANG-TAG IN JAPANESE WHICH IS A NICE PERK. THESE ARE SOME OF THE BEST KEPT SECRETS IN VINTAGE WATCH COLLECTING, AND THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING EXAMPLE
