    Re: New Citizen Chronomaster paper dials on a strap

    Kind of curious that they go black gator with the white dial, but brown with the black dial. Like...brown shoes with black suit. :)

    Nice looking either way. Listed as 5 SPY, too, and web site's showing 10 year warranty. Price isn't bad, either, given the paper dial and titanium.

    Hm. Not right now...but if the caliber 0100 doesn't appeal when it's released (price or appearance), this will have to be considered.

    And yeah, AFAIK these are the first A060-based models on strap. There've been A010s before, but not A060s that I can recall.

    Re: New Citizen Chronomaster paper dials on a strap

    Hypothetical for ya.

    Say you wanted one of these; I daresay that's not much of a stretch for many of us. Now, say that there's 4 SKUs, not 2...both dials can be ordered with black or brown strap. Which would you pick...white with black strap, white with brown strap, black with black strap, black with brown strap?

    OR, option 5: you don't care about the strap as you'll put it on something else anyway. Come to think, this is probably my vote, simply because Citizen, AFAIK, doesn't offer multiple strap lengths.

    BUT, on the chance I'd want to keep it, I most likely would prefer black on black #1, then white on brown #2.

    Does anyone know of end-user photos of the black dial? So far all I have seen have been low resolution stock photos.

    It's been a while since I owned a The Citizen, but isn't the ten-year warranty applicable only to Japanese residents (or those who are willing to use certain, well-known Japanese intermediaries)? For those who live overseas, the deal is typically just one year of coverage.

    I remember tracking the rate of mine very closely every day (whilst worn on the opposite wrist to my GS, bought at about the same time and being tested concurrently for the sake of the science) and once I had tracked it past 6 SPY, I sent it back - just within the warranty period.

    I just ordered the black dial model highlighted by the OP (only plus a titanium bracelet) from Higuchi & yes, to take advantage of the full 10-year warranty I know I can send it to Higuchi as my intermediary. I don't see that as a major problem since it's not much more trouble sending something to Japan than to 1 of Citizen USA's service centers (& I think there's a significant probability that they would have to forward a JDM model to Japan anyway).

    I'm uncertain as to whether I would be able to double-dip & use a US service center for the 1st year & still be able to send it back to Japan for another 9 years. I've also read that the Citizen USA service centers will honor the Japanese 10-year warranty for JDM models, but haven't confirmed that with Citizen USA.

    Non-hypothetically, I went w/your option 5 & ordered the AQ4020-03E w/an additional titanium bracelet. I already have plenty of leather straps, anyway!

    Re: New Citizen Chronomaster paper dials on a strap

    A black dial & brown strap is a strange combination. Personally speaking, I'm not understanding that mix.
    Loving the white dial and black strap, though.
    I could stop buying watches, but I'm no quitter.

    Rolex Submariner Ceramic ND 114060. Grand Seiko SBGN001G GMT. Omega Aqua Terra 8500. Omega Planet Ocean 8800. Omega Speedmaster 1863.

    Casio MRG-8100B-1AJF. Casio MRG-7600-1AJF. Casio MRG-7700-1AJF. Casio GMW-B5000-1ER. Casio GMW-B5000TB-1ER. Casio GW-5000-1AJF.
