COMING AT YOU IS A SUPER SLICK 1981 CITIZEN AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH RUNNING ON A HI BEAT 8100 FLYBACK MOVEMENT. 

 

  • CASE: TONNEAU SHAPED CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THIS ONE MEASURES A NICE 38mm NOT INCLUDING PUSHERS OR ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWNS BY 44mm LUG TO LUG. 

 

  • DIAL:  THIS ONE JUST SEEMS LIKE IT WAS MADE FOR SOME SPECIAL-OPS BUSINESS. REALLY GREAT FINISHING AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL WITH THE GLOSSY SUNKEN SUBDIALS SET AGAINST THE MATTE BLACKGROUND. NICE POPS OF COLOR WITH THE ORANGE ON THE SUBDIAL AND CHRONO SWEEP HAND. THOSE WHITE HOUR MINUTE/HANDS ALLOW FOR SOME SOLID LEGIBILTIY AND GIVE THIS ONE A MILITARY AVIATOR FEEL. THE SLOPING ROTATING INNER BEZEL(CONTROLLED BY THE SIGNED CROWN AT 10) IS A COOL FUNCTIONAL ADDITION .

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS  BRUTE IS POWERED BY THE IN-HOUSE 23 JEWEL CITIZEN 8100A HI BEAT 28880 MOVEMENT WHICH FEATURES A NIFTY FLYBACK FUNCTION.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME. THIS ONE HAS BEEN SERVICED WITHIN THE LAST YEAR.

 

  • THIS CHRONO COMES MOUNTED ON ITS ORIGINAL CITIZEN BRACELET WHICH REALLY TIES THE WHOLE LOOK TOGETHER PERFECTLY.  BRACELET CAN ACCOMMODATE UP TO A 7.75” WRIST. THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITES OF THESE 8110 CITIZEN CHRONOGRAPHS. IT DEFINITELY HAS THAT TOOL WATCH FEEL TO IT AND IS JUST A SOLID AND WELL ENGINEERED DAILY PIECE.
