Jewels,

I have a Citizen 8110 (67-9119) that needs some work. Along with the two push buttons and centered crown, it has the crown at 10 o'clock just like what Quang posted in #50. I'd like to send it to you for an estimate if possible. Please let me know what you think!

Bob, a sharpi works great. You might see it with the eye if your looking for it. The chipping part is where the jurys still out.
An interesting thing i've learned with these watches, and the other 8110a models ive worked on, is some have metal movement holders and some have plastic.
The metal ones work way better and are actually held in by screws and clamps where the plastic one just snaps on.
The plastic ones don't hold the movement in the case nearly as securely as the metal ones, and as a result the dial will move and the inner bezel will rub the paint off of it. 31
Screws and clamps? Mines got a metal movement holder, but its only put into place. Theres nothing holding it in, and the movement is quite loose inside it.

And PM sent about a service for mine.

If you've got a suction cup, its possible to suck of the glass. Or remove the movement and you can push out the crystal.

It sounds like that hand wasn't placed at 12 o'clock at neutral. Remove it, then set the watch to neutral. Then place the hand back at 12 o'clock. If that doesn't work, then your hand is loose.

Hi 31 jewels how do you remove the glass from citizen 8110 and my watchs secound hand is lose every time I use flyback it never goes back to zero.
Are your referring to the Bull Head? To answer your other question is remove the flyback lever, and then check the hand tube and see thats its not cracked. If its ok, then re set and re index the hand, and you should be good. Hope that helps. 31

Sorry to resurrect a very old thread but I had a question. I just picked up a Citizen bullhead chrono that's running extremely well except the hour sub-dial hand doesn't seem to be working. The minutes work fine and the seconds also works well and flies back. The watch is also keeping excellent time. Is this something that can possibly be fixed easily or would it have to be repaired professionally?

I love the watch. The movement is original as well as the case, pushers and, supposedly the crystal. I know the dial and hands are after-market.

Great threa 31 jewels. Just like the previous poster I've bought one of these. On mine I dont seem to be able to change the day? It auto changes but I cant change it manually. Is that an easy fix? Thanks!
Thank you for the props. Almost 20,000 views. I couldnt be more thrilled.
Have you tried to pull the crown out (1) click, and then push the reset pusher?
If that does not work than something is broken or missing in the movement.

Hope that helps......

Hi 31J,

First of all: great project followed with pictures! Big up!
I have a few questions for you.
Could you tell me what is the lug size please?
What happened with the 67-9054 caseback idea? Didn't fit? I would love to see this movement in action but don't want to remove the caseback every time :)
Mine is under delivery, just grabbed one at ebay - so that is why I don't know the lug size :)

Hi. Thank you for the props. Lug width is 18mm.

Forum members have been asking me to make clear case backs for a long time.
I just never got around to making them.......untill now.
I have decided to start production. I'll start a thread for it, so stay tuned.

View attachment 701438 This is V's dial after repair of the dials outer edge. What i like about his dial is the sub dials have faded to a almost chocolate color. Short of the edge and lume repair on the 2 and the 4 hour markers, its pristine and ready for the movement and hands.
Hi 31!

I know it an old thread, but maybe you still following:) May I ask what equipment did you use to restore the outer black edge of the dial?

Many thanks, Looking forward:

Balint.

View attachment 692096 This is the calendar side of my 8110a. I noticed on the first inspection that the calendar was sticking from 28-5. This pic captures the reason. If you look on the outer edge you will see grease there. I didnt shoot a pic after i removed it but there was thick green oil completely under the whole calendar wheel that looked the same as the above movement pics. No wonder it wouldnt turn right and change the date correctly. Next stop, the ultrasonic cleaner 31
Does the calendar dial always have Kanji and English for the days? I just bought one and it's in the mail. However, it indicated Kanji.

Also is one able to put sapphire crystal on? Thx

Hi. The calendar wheels come in many different languages. If you have a kanji wheel then you should have English also.

Sapphire crystals are so expensive most people opt out. I have not tried fitting one to a Bull. If yours has the OE Citizen gasket it will make things much easier to spec one. Is yours stainless or nickel?
