  1. Hi, I recently obtained a Citizen watch and am very curious about its vintage and worth.
    The numbers on the back are:
    1800
    4-18055ISM
    40600873
    63-1230
    The dial is olive green. It has three hands and a date window. It is very clean – has no scratches on the crystal.
    The writing is “Citizen” at nine o’clock and “water resistant” and “21 jewels” below at 3 o’clock.
    Please can you ell me anything about it.

    • Hello and welcome to my blog! Your watch was made in June 1974. It is a nice watch but not one of the best watches for collectors so the value is not very high. I don’t make evaluations so I can not help you with this matter. The movement is manual winding, stainless steel case with acrylic crystal. I hope my information were useful and I will answer any time you ask a question. 🙂

      • Hi, Thank you for your prompt reply. That is very useful info. I am in South Africa and have set it going and it has kept very good time. I bought it from a second hand store where it had been marked down by half. South Africans love those flashy electronic watches and do not value old fashioned watches. I, personally, love them and buy them whenever I can.

  2. Hello! I found a Citizen Watch but the markings on the back are not visible anymore, thought it has something written inside the back which is :
    Japan Citizen Twenty-one 21 jewels
    8200 Water resistant 100 and there are japanese symbols for the day (example monday)

  3. Hello,
    I have just re-commissioned my Citizen Ana Digi (legends on back…4-08234 TA 41-8510….GN-4W-U) and the analogue part works as does the digital time. Pressing the top button illuminates the digital display but date, chime, alarm, stop watch and timer don’t work. The digital display on the seconds function is partial. Please can you tell me if I can get the watch repaired and where? Thanks in advance.

    • Hello Robin! I have no idea if you can get the watch repaired because I don’t know what is the problem. You should try finding a good watchmaker with experience in quartz watches and take it to him for an inspection. Only after inspecting the watch the problem could be evaluated and a solution, if any, found.
