1964 CITIZEN AutoDater 7.

Cal: 4101 'Jet Ring Rotor', 25 jewel.




I was between the Seiko 5 and the Citizen 'Super Jet' for my latest 1964 watch, and now wondering if there is some direct manufacturer's competition here between the '5' and the '7' presented in their respective shields.

I'm wearing my Grandad's Villard today - which I have really fallen in love with.  I was going to be pottering about outside today and thought maybe I shouldn't wear it, then thought about how many hundreds of hours it probably already spent outside, tending his beautiful roses (I didn't inherit that particular skill), so figured it would be just fine - it's probably how it got most of its scratches.  I'm going to invest in a custom strap for it at some time (and get it serviced), to fit the lugs better and be a bit shorter, so that I don't get the pointy tail showing from the front.  Now I know that I'll wear it regularly.  Might even have a go at making my own, I'm an experienced sewer and have some leather pieces.

And whilst yesterday I said I had some standards - in respect of the correct date - they're not high enough to endure the blister I would gain trying to move this forward 18 days!  I need some Rodico on that crown too - I didn't get it as clean as I thought that I did.
