Friday watch


Recommended Posts

Haven't had this out for a while, as the circuit died and I didn't like the cost of getting it professionally fixed. Fortunately I found a donor and managed to do the swap without breaking the replacement movement, or mangling the hands, or destroying the dial. So my fettling skills are improving. :) It's a Citizen Crystron 4-851331 TA cal 8550, serial number dates it to Sept 1977.

That's very nice, and the price isn't out of order either. :thumbsup:

I was lucky enough to try on a few at an event this morning. I didn't ask the price,  but I think it is beyond me!

Sorry if I'm being dim, but what is the white spot window at 7 o'clock opposite the date window?

Just as well, Scott.

Doesn't comply with my definition of "tasteful". :(

At £202k I would have bought two. Who the hell can afford watches in this price range?  I guess it's our football celebs, TV celebs and dare I say it a few MPs nono.gif.dca32c6211babeff3cadfe0f716b6854.gif.c3a8fcb782b121c105b382442f8baf68.gif
