    Had to pull the trigger on this nice non G Beater.... BM6400

    After seeing some of these on the forum for the longest time, I had mentioned in another thread, I was always a little nervous to pull the trigger on one of these because it looked smaller in photos. This past weekend I took a friend to a local jeweler, and I saw this sitting in the case. I tried it on and knew I had to have it. They gave me a decent price, but I wanted to check here to confirm....indeed it was.

    This is definitely NOS, this had to had been sitting in his case since it was originally released. They had Citizen watches there from the 90's, and the original tag showed $175, I haggled them down to a lot lower So needless to say, I just got back with a new watch on my wrist.

    I know details can be found in many locations, but I always like to throw in my reviews to add to the fun

    This is a great simple basic field watch. Nice black face, the numbers are large and easy to read, they are polished SS around the edges of the numbers, as well as the Citizen logo. The second hand hits the marks all the way around. I really like the screwdown crown, it has the rough finish to it and the back has a polished screwdown backcase.

    The cloth strap has a leather backing to it, the holes are reinforced with steel so no worries about ripping or stretching. It's got 2 keepers, a cloth and a Stainless Steel.

    I am finding it to be a very comfortable watch. It it is large and hefty enough to know it's there, yet very low key. It is a very casual watch, I thought T-Shirt and Jeans, and business casual. It could be worn with a suit, but I wasn't thinking suit when I got it.

    Here are the photos

    I was in the same boat "had to have it" syndrome from this forum. I finally won one on Ebay for around 70 bucks brand new in box and I have to say it was the best 70 I spent. If I feel like this look but think there is even an outside possibility it could get a ding or scratch I wear this one but if I think I will be able to be more careful I wear my PMT56-2731. Similar looks but the BM is actually a little larger. I'll post pics later.

    I definitely look forward to those photos, if you possibly might have some side to side comparisons, that would be great

    I may end up getting the black version of this as well

    I'm a bit puzzled. As far as I know, the watch above is a current model.

    This is the 'Ray Mears watch' that has been discontinued for some years and is pretty rare:


    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I don't need to see any more pictures of this watch! (I've been thinking about one of these for a little while, though I don't need and can't afford another watch at the moment)

    Have you tried any alternative straps? I'm not too keen on the standard strap; if a 22mm Rhino would fit through the 21mm lugs the watch would be perfect for me (for about ten minutes probably).

    Very nice! Don't they have a version of that model with a green canvas military looking strap? I had my eye on one some time ago, Great deal on these to, cool pickup.
    Experience is what you end up with when you didn't get what you wanted.

    I hope it was a whole lot lower; you can get these from jewelswarehouse.com for $102 with free shipping and no state sales tax.

    I have one and had the case glass bead blasted. A 22mm Nato fits fine, that's what I use.

    I wish I had taken you up on that one when you sold it Tribe

    When I mentioned NOS, I mean that it's been sitting for a loooooooong time. It's a current model that has been around for quite some time if I'm not mistaken?
