that is a fair bit of crud 31j! Mind you it's amazing how much dirt there can be on a watch which looks reasonably clean on the wrist.
This Citizen 67-9054 was by far the worst watch that ever landed on my bench. The mud and dirt were literally falling out of it. The crystal was so scoured that you could barely see the dial. I left the dial, hour and minute hands original. This watch is the proto type for matching the correct Citizen orange hand color. There is actually an image of this watch unrestored on the internet. I couldn't repost it because the file is to big. 31that is a fair bit of crud 31j! Mind you it's amazing how much dirt there can be on a watch which looks reasonably clean on the wrist.
Oh yea, its a big chunk of stainless. I agree on the dial, and am really happy with the outcome. I wore this watch for months, and only Rioone's Speedy and a few others timed out really superb. Within 6 seconds a day positional. These are hard to come by, and I've been working on a solution for the bezels. 31Kind of nice how the "TV Dial's" dial aged. I also have that model with the outer tachymeter bezel faded away. Its size is bigger than the other 8110s
Hi Alex - do you mean the 67-9551?Hi Stephen, that explains how thin one of my 8100s is. It's probably the thinnest 8100 and 8110. I always wondered why Citizen didn't come out with an 8110 as thin as her. The 8100 I am referring to is the thin and wide PVD one
Hi Stephen, yes it's the 67-9551 with the 8100 movement (black dial below). It was the thinnest I've across with in collecting 8110s and 8100s. I measured it when I read your post. It's 10mm in thickness. The thinnest 8110 I've across were the Monaco types below. They're 13mm. The 67-9551 and the green "Monaco" still needs work. Their PVD cases have aged and need black re-painting on certain parts. The yellow's all right, and a friend's providing an original strap for it as a gift. 'will show that when it arrives.Hi Alex - do you mean the 67-9551?
