1969 Citizen Chronomaster 500m ultra rare Holly Grail Vintage Japanese Diver
For sale this exceptional watch. This is THE holly grail of Citizen collectors!
This is one of the most sought after vintage watches! A huge 44mm one piece stainless steel case (uni body case the movement comes out through the frontal part of the watch, after removing the crystal and the bezel of course), thick slightly domed mineral crystal, unidirectional 60 clicks bezel, screw in crown, original rubber strap. Perfect movement as the one in the Chronomaster line (but Chronometer grade Citizen 5440).Everything works as it should. In all the years of hunting these watches I saw only 15 pieces, in private collections or online. I had three of them. Putting together all the serials and details the conclusion so far is. 9 of them are made in April 1969, 3 are made in January 1969 (901006xx) (I cant see the serial of the other three in order to date them). There are two dial variations: CHRONOMETER & Chronometer Why? The Chronometer variant has an aging yellow lume. The other remains more green. The serials range is from about 90400420 up to about 90401130 (except the January 69 pieces, the first one being is 90100xx) How do the last 5 digits of the Citizen serial actually work? The finishing of the case all brushing should be longitudinal. Read more about Citizen on my blog: vintagecitizenwatches.
