    Flea market find: 1960s Citizen Newmaster

    I came across this Citizen Newmaster from the 1960s at a flea market yesterday (Tuesday):





    It has the original crystal (which sadly needs replacing as it has been whacked into a sharp object, which has caused a dent and a crack at the 3 o'clock position), and the original signed "CTZ" crown. The strap wasn't original and it has been removed. The dial is more or less pristine (the red spot at 11 is a mark on the inside of the crystal).



    Not a bad buy for the price.

    The case is in very good condition too. I'm sure there's a precise way of dating Citizens from the numbers on the back - someone will know.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    I have proved a similar age Citizen in daily use 1968 to 1980+. Longest continous use for me of any. Never serviced. Instant runner when moved a little yet today. Sapphire shattered when dropped on concrete. I replaced with glass. Still accurate.

    Cool.
    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    G-Shock MTG930DA-8V, G-Shock GW-5600J-1. G-Shock Riseman GW9200-1, G-Shock GW6900-1

    That's lovely. There's a really nice retro vibe to it.

    found an NOS piece of CNM22. A silver dial with a brownish glow. Paired with a nylon strap to have the retro feel. Loving it. More pics later.
