Great explanations of the work you're doing, and cool shots too, 31j. How does a balance wheel get bent - is it most likely rough handling by a 'botch maker'?

Yes Stephen, The dial code on my 67-9151 is Japan 8110-901204 KA, and on the case back the Ref.No is 4-901118 Y, mine and yours have the same codes.Hi Wysanz,
I've been exchanging information with 31 Jewels about Citizen's vintage chronographs, including the 67-9151 he's restoring at the moment. I have one of these and the case number is 4-901118, whilst Brian's is 4-901142. Both of ours have dial codes of 901204, which I think is the same as yours. Would you be kind enough to confirm the numbers on yours? This would be helpful to Brian and for my blog, where I've done a page on the chronographs.
Can I ask as well for some info on the two 67-9178s you have? I have the black dialled version, but the dial code is missing - the dial must have had some issues in the past and has been painted round the edge, losing the second indices and the code. It would be helpful to know the dial codes for both models, so I can add them to the blog page so it's as complete as possible.
Sorry to trouble you, but I hope you can help,
All the best,
Stephen aka Morris Minor and Sweephand

Thank you friend!@Wysanz; I like your three musketeers!
You are welcome Stephen! I am glad that being able to help. Good day.Hi wysanz, thank you so much for your reply and superb pics! I'm sorry I'm late replying to this, I didn't get a notification about your post so missed it. The 67-9178 info is just what I needed to complete that entry on my blog page.
And you have 2 white dialled 67-91678s! Boy am I green with envy
All the best,
Thanks J. I have a 9119 here and i measured it. 30.50MM. I would have had to machine off alot more, but it would have worked. I appreciate the offer. Hey at least there will be more 8110 restorations. My problem was the single registers 8110's arent as thick of a movement as the double register 8110s. The movement sat too far away from the 67-9151's bezel. I realized only after i got the bull that it would have worked. Only still I would have had to machine off metal to get it to fit.Your work is amazing! Interestingly, if you required a metal movement holder for the 8110, I would've sent you one I had. It's from a 9119 and should fit.
