    SPORTY Chronomasters next week!

    These got posted over in the Citizen forum.

    39mm, stainless cases. Caseback shows 100m WR. The black DLC is strongly tempting me; the dial's more intriguing. Not that the sunray blue is bad, by any means.

    Slight quibble: full-stitch gator isn't my first choice for strap material here, especially on the DLC with that vertical-striped dial.

    The DLC one is nice, but do not need it(or could afford it)

    You got an 0100, so...yeah. I don't need it either, but that rarely stops me... :)

    I'm leaning to this even more than the washi dials.

    Maybe this is what is the future of the 5 s/y movements, more LEs?

    I suppose, but wouldn't it make more sense to make the more exotic, higher end model the LEs? And I'm not in the mood to check, but it sure seems like they've actually been focused on limited versions...to the point where 'limited' is largely meaningless, unless these are selling MUCH faster than I'd suspect.

    My earlier thought was that these were something of a trial run for sport/GADA models, rather than more strictly dress, and in the slightly larger case than most of the A060's. Or maybe that these will have a Western market orientation...size, DLC, sporty?

    But honestly, Citizen's marketing strategy has always seemed disorganized.

    The watch face has a more sporty look, but leather straps are anything but sporty IMO. Put these on a decent looking bracelet and you may have something, but as is they look somewhat disjointed somewhere between dress and sport.

    Sporty and dressy are determined by Japanese standards not Western?

    Odd...strikes me that they're trying to push out spare cases and don't have enough bracelets to go with them. Maybe clearing parts inventory for regular production 0100?
