Simple


Two or three hands, with or without a date, maybe day too… simple calendar vintage Citizen watches or just a simple elegant design. Some of them important pieces of history, some of them nothing more but plain gorgeous.

Because most of the time… Less is more.

  3. Hoi Folks, maybe you can help me out here. I inherited my Father’s Watch and i just want to know a bit more about it. Like when was it build, maybe where it was build … that kind of stuff. In terms of money it’s worth nothing, that’s why it seems to be hard to find information.

    i know already it is this one http://www.vintagelcd.com/vul/item/citizen/

    But there is no real date or something else. She has the following numbers on the back:

    4-601190 Y (that number brought me here)
    50701729 (in smaller types)
    62-9154 (that was the number that brought me to the named site)

    i would appreciate all the Information i can get 🙂 I always loved the plain and simple look of the watch and it’s all i expect from a watch. a minute off now and theen does not matter to me and it’s my Fathers Watch which i will hold dear and on my wrist.

    thx in Advance, Michael

      • Hello! You can find out details about finding the manufacturing date by using the info here: https://vintagecitizenwatches.com/2014/02/23/dating-a-vintage-citizen-watch/ (it looks like April 1966 is right)
        If you can open it and post a pic of the movement I could give you more data. The movement is an important part in dating it and for other details. Unfortunately it is not a rarity and not a high value, no matter which of the two possibilities of the movement I have in mind is inside of it.

      • Hi, I found the following ‘Waterproof’, ‘M51301’, ‘anti-magnetic’, ‘unbreakable spring’ says it is an export model of the Autodater Seven ADS 51301 with a 25 jewel 410x movement. Export models usually have no model name on the dial. This is pretty rare in export form, is that it has the 410 movement inside. The watch was made in April 1966 and runs perfectly.

  5. A friend gave this watch to me this week and I’m wondering if it is a recent construction of NOS parts. The caseback doesn’t match the dial, or movement, but maybe that’s all that was replaced. I also can’t find much actual information yet about this particular dress/simple watch… although I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it for the last 3 days!

    Bottom of dial text: JAPAN0200 6-162-134 SMO
    Balance bridge marked: 0201

    Anything interesting I could find out about this piece in particular?
    Thank you!
