SUPERSONIC~1962 CITZEN JET PARA AUTOMATIC

Regular price $450.00 Sale

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY IS A SUPER SEXY 1962 CITIZEN JET AUTOMATIC WITH COOL JET-ROTOR MOVEMENT IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.

  • CASE: SUBSTANTIAL ALL-STEEL ROUND CASE IN NEAR MINT CONDITION.  THIS BEAUTY MEASURES A LARGE 37mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 44mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS CASE IS IN SHARP AND UNPOLISHED ORIGINAL CONDITION. I LOVE THOSE EDGY FACETED LUGS WITH REALLY SHARP CHAMFERS WHICH GIVE THIS ONE SOME INTRIGUE. THE DRILLED LUG-HOLES MAKE THIS ONE A TOTAL STRAP QUEEN.
  • DIAL: SO SIMPLE AND CLASSY. THE BEAUTIFUL SUNBURST SILVER DIAL IS IN GREAT SHAPE WITH REALLY NO SIGNS OF WEAR. 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!!
  • 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 A 21 JEWEL VARIANT AND IS IN AMAZING CONDITION AND RUNNING GREAT. STRONG RUNNER AND KEEPING GREAT TIME BUT SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN.

THIS BEAUTY COMES MOUNTED ON WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE THE ORIGINAL CITIZEN SIGNED HEAVY DUTY STEEL BRACELET. BRACELET SHOULD BE ABLE TO ACCOMODATE UP TO A 7.75" WRIST. THIS ONE IS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST TO WEAR. THE JET ROTOR MOVEMENTS HAVE A SWOOSHY FEEL ON THE WRIST DUE TO THOSE PERIPHERAL MOUNTED ROTOR WEIGHTS. AND, AS MENTIONED, THIS DUDE IS BIG AND HAS SOME SOLID WRIST PRESENCE. THESE ARE SOME OF THE BEST KEPT SECRETS IN VINTAGE WATCH COLLECTING.
