    I really dig those hex dials. It's like the chronograph...OF THE FUTURE!!!
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    "New"?!! Get off this forum!!!

    .....

    Oh - I see. Well, if that's the picture of it, we'll accept it. One of the slightly more restrained 1970s watches. Good find.

    Hi 3ps, I mainly collect Citizen Automatic Chronographs. To see if this is original, the model number in the case-back should be 67-9151. This is one of the hard-to-find models, the octagon-shaped chronograph. They also come out with dominant blue and white dials. I have this one also but in blue. The white is the hardest to find.

    There is also an octagon shaped bullhead-type chronograph that is easier to find (67-9356). They come out in black and white dials originally. Despite having the same shape, the casing of your watch is smaller than the octagon bullhead. Citizen didn't just pattern their casings' sizes after each other.

    Its movement is the 8110. It came out in 1970 as the fourth earliest automatic chronograph movement. It has a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour (bph), nearly chronometer grade and just second to Zenith's El Primero with 30,000 bph. This was the first automatic chronograph in January 1969 and became the standard of automatic chronographs of years to come. The 8110 has a sister movement, the single sub-dial 8100. According to my watchmaker, these two movements are easier to service. We're also in Seiko-Citizen country so we got a lot of spare parts for these 8110 and 8100 models. Citizen unfortunately stopped making watches with 8110 and 8100 in 1980.

    What I like about Citizen Automatic Chronographs is their movements (8110 and 8100), their designs and their value-for-money. I also collect the cool different bracelets that held them in their time.

    wow, that's wild...I keep feeling more respect for Citizen, plugging along with excellent customer service while other companies would rather shoot themselves in the foot.
