    Hmm. I'll stick with my Sarb033 for less than half the price. That's a nice watch though

    If I'm going to spend nearly US$1,000 for a Citizen, I want one that is made in Japan.

    Slap a diver's bezel on that and increase the WR to 200m and I would be on that like a fat kid on a Smartie! Even now, it's a nice elegant watch!

    Finally I saw Citizen Automatic timepieces! I remember that eagle symbol on older Citizen Auto dials and loved them. I hope Citizen will continue manufacturing some (New) Automatics, and also some Auto divers.

    Thanks a lot for sharing, Sodiac . . .

    How do you know it's not made in Japan? It says "Japan" on it, I'm assuming it is made there?

    It says Japan Mov't on the dial, and Japan on the movement. Case could still be from somewhere else.

    I don't know much about Citizen automatics, but I do know that an automatic from Citizen were something that watch fanatics in Japan were waiting in vain for, for a long time (info from a few years ago). I have not seen one in real life, but from what I can gather from other websites, say the finish, especially the"zaratsu" polish, is actually better than the Grand Seiko (Note: still under investigation why...will try to update). Appreciate any info on why that might be so. Here's a borrowed pic which I fell in love with.

    I don't see the "NB004058E" on the Japanese version website. I have also done a search, but no luck. The movement seems to be the same 0910, but everything else, especially the case size, seems to be different. For instance, the Japanese autos are 37mm, where as the NB004058E is 42mm.

    Just some info I have at the moment.

    As Citizen V pointed out, when the dial says "Japan Mov't" it means the movement is indeed made in Japan, but it is cased (put together) somewhere else with other parts (e.g. case, dial, hands) sourced outside Japan.
