Hi all, this is my first post so I hope it’s in the right place and someone can help me.

I am simply wondering if this caseback matches the rest of my watch. I have heard of bullheads being mis-matched and hope someone can shed some light on this. Any information on the watch would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you all in advance.

No. The model number on the back, 67-0286, is from a custom v2 "blackie", not a chronograph. I've got one in my desk that I just checked and its near identical to the case back that you have.

I have a similar question. The back doesn't match the blue dial (but seems to match the case material and finish). Also, overall, I haven't found any reference to blue (and I also saw green dials). Does it mean that blue and green dials are fake?

The dials on both these watches are after market - the case back for the silver dial is incorrect, as 'fixer29' has explained. There were no original blue, green or yellow dials - those colours are all aftermarket. Although silver (sometimes referred to as 'white') is an original colour, aftermarket silver ones are not of the same quality - the deeper groves on the sub-dials are a good indication of a non-original one. Here's a link to my guide to buying an original 'bullhead': https://sweep-hand.org/want-an-original-citizen-bullhead-a-quick-buying-guide/

And here is my blog page on all Citizen's automatic chronographs: https://sweep-hand.org/citizens-vintage-chronographs/ for info on the whole range.

Hi guys!

I have two Citizen Bullhead watches and they look a bit different. Don´t know if they are different age or if something is wrong with them.

Do you see anything strang in the pictures? I have read somewhere that the dials in yellow are probably aftermarket but I have no clue if anything else is crazy.
