I recently bought, for a bargain price, what looks like a vintage Citizen Seven Star 24J Automatic Day-Date from Japan. Just want to know more about this watch.
Nice watch! It is not very rare or valued but nevertheless a nice one! Congratularion! Is there any particular info that you are looking for?
Was looking to get started with vintage watches but not sure if the watch is genuine.
Would you be able to assist with photos provided?
Hi! Welcome to the group! 🙂 Post some pictures, dial, movement if you can… I will try to help, if possible.
Thanks so much! Attached photos of 2 watches.

I replied via my email with some pics but not sure if you received them.
Sorry, I see no pictures. Just add them to the message here. Upload them to http://www.tinypic.com (or similar) and add the links here if you can.
Uploaded 4 photos as below for yr kind help:
I would say they look original, not really rare or collectable, but I am happy you like them. Enjoy them in good health!
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 Michael and welcome to VCW!
Here is how you can find out when a Citizen watch was made: https://vintagecitizenwatches.com/2014/02/23/dating-a-vintage-citizen-watch/
So without having more details I would say it is safe enough to conclude that it made in July 1975.
Keep it in good health and always cherish it. The value (to you) it is a lot more than the money price you can get for it.
I Boug a vintage Nos Citizen Automatic Day-Date…the front show Japan. Want to know more about this watch.
Stamp on the back
Congratulation! Could you add some pictures? It would be great help. (face, case-back and movement if possible).
I just bought it doesn’t received yet but I have the pictures of the ads.?will post original soon when received…It’s my first vintage I don’t know if there is a historic value but I like the look and the Nos condition of it.
Here the picture
Beautiful watch and indeed looks NOS. Here is how you can see when it was made:
So it was made in 73 September.
Hello I have found this clock in an antique shop. I hope you can tell me something about this. Movement – old – a rarity – value.
Citizen Day Date 25 Jewels Automatic Waterproof M51301 / 60401098
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.
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?
Hello Brad! The watch is a common Citizen. Nothing really special but it is nice. Enjoy it! Unfortunately there is no way in knowing if it was made out of parts or not. Maybe other readers of the site could give you more info.
Thanks for the reply. Any overall timeframe when these were being produced? Just for my own curiosity.
It’s keeping excellent time and has already been a great introduction into vintage (and smaller) watches.
Here is how to date a Vintage Citizen Watch: https://vintagecitizenwatches.com/2014/02/23/dating-a-vintage-citizen-watch/
Based on the fact that yours is a 0200 calibre and has no serial number and on the case and dial design I would date yours at about 1965-1970.

What kind of help are you looking for?
Can you break this down for me, by chance? So very confusing. 6031- S 30946ZSMS watch front says movt Japan dial taiwan thanks in advance for help, i need it. 🙂

Do you know perhaps where can i find info about a 1971 CITIZEN Seven Star V2 26J Cal.7790? I`m trying to find the history, what the watch offer at that time.
Thanks in advance.
No special details about it.
I upload 4 photo’s. Just curious about it, worth, and no idea of the numbers scratched on the back outer ring. I know my dad bought in Okinawa back in the 60’s. Any info would be greatly appreciated. https://imgur.com/a/4X1HDUW
Hi! Sorry, I don’t make evaluations. You can read more about this model on my site.
I picked up a Citizen watch from an antique fair and would like to know more about it, I got it as it reminds me of my grandfathers watch. I worked out that the date of manufacture was November 1970/1980 but please could you confirm this. The serial number on the back is 01100314. Also, would you know how I could go about fixing the strap, there is brown staining, could polish get this off or if I was looking to replace the strap would you know where I could find a genuine replacement? Its a fish scale gold band. I have looked online but couldn’t find anything. Thanks!
Sorry I think the links I left aren’t working, I’ll retry https://photos.app.goo.gl/xssoNR7tJN3Jvgy88
Ok, I see them now. 🙂 It is a quartz, I am only into mechanical ones, sorry.
I cant see the pics, sorry. Try again, please.
Hi Ed, do you still have the watch? It works? I own your identical watch, inherited from my mother, not working. For me it has a lot of emotional value. Would you like to sell it to me? I hope in your answer.
Can you help identify a watch I found that belonged to my father. Quartz water resistant base metal YP 6100-S14528 SMT 0985776 GN-4W-S any info would be appreciated
Hello! I am only into mechanical ones, so I cant help you, sorry.
