Hello Guys
i am new to the forums but i have been collection Seiko and a few Citizens for a while now.

i recently came across this is Gem in a watch lot on the Bay.
i thought it looked really interesting and had to have it,

it is a Citizen Moon dater which has been branded "Commando"
Could Anyone tell me anything about the Commando sub brand or name?
is it just a re branding to sell in specific countries?

i am really interested in finding out, as for me this is going to get a lot of wrist time.

thanks in advance
steven

Hi.. Don't know about commando, but moon is japanese for month, so I imagine it's right translation should be month dater.. very nice watch...

Hello thank you for your reply, yes apparently it was a translation error and all along it was supposed to be called "Month Dater"

shame there is no Light on the Commando thing.

That's the first time I've seen 'commando' on a vintage Citizen. Everything else looks correct, and the dial doesn't look like it's been re-done. I have seen this model with a 'KYOTO' applied logo instead of Citizen. Looks like a very limited edition, but otherwise a mystery!
