    Got this and got it going and working great.

    Aloha ,
    I got this last week of the Bay and want to see what it was. well according to all my investigation and reliable blogs I found out it is a Genuine Citizens Watch from
    about ...1930 when Citizens first started. It was all molded up and frozen with it so I took it all apart and got it cleaned up and it went together and when I wound it up it fired up
    and started to work good and still is.
    I went to a couple websites and until I found one it stated I had a Original one. I very lightly rubbed the case with some light polish and it came out nice. No buffing at all and it
    looks like new. When Citizens first started I was told they used pocket watch movements for their first wrist watch's and they were like this one. I used a old Bracelet to check it out.
    This is a .... " Pocket Watch Movement .....Size 10 F ".

    If anyone wants to read up on it there is a posting on a very knowledgeable website call ......
    (THIS) >> https://sweep-hand.org/2013/05/07/ci...atch-movement/ and it explains about it.

    The Watch Mentioned : I know this is a lot of pictures but I wanted everyone to see just what they were like from the beginning in the old days.

    This is absolutely wonderful to see! Can I ask how much you paid for it? Your post has inspired me - I count myself as a Citizen fan, but your post has made me realise that I can't really consider myself one until I own a piece of their history. I need to get something like this into my collection. Can you show us more pictures of it all cleaned up and perhaps on a period-appropriate strap? Do you have any idea of its provenance or previous ownership? All of that would be fascinating

    Aloha ,
    Well these are the Picture's I took of it. I did not want to leave it all apart separated for too long because I did not want anything to get wrecked. The owner I don't know about
    because I just got the watch ..... ( It came of eBay ). NOTE : ( I paid .....$8.00 + $3.50 USD for it and it came from the ....CONUS USA ... East Coast. )
    I was looking as I always do for old watch's like this and it popped up on a sellers store page so I said I want that and Hit The Button. I like old ones like this but never find them
    then I got this by a ..... Miracle. I don't know about a Strap of origin for it because I could not find a website that speaks about it. If I can find a website for information to all
    these old ones then it be fine. I would really like to find another Movement for it too so as to have a spare but it is a .... ( SWISS F Pocket Watch Movement 0 and also known as a .....
    ( Size 10 ). If any one knows where another movement can be sorted I would like to find one.
    But that website talks about it and should be read a lot about all the different models there are to get.
