Citizen Star Alarm Date
Right here’s one thing you don’t see day by day, a classic Citizen with field and papers…and an alarm watch as well! This classic circa late 1960’s / early 1970’s Citizen Alarm Date is a gem, in very good situation and full with unique bracelet and field and papers. The 37mm gold plate case has a basic fluted bezel and appears to be unpolished. The silver dial is ideal with no patina that I can see, with good utilized gold markers and gold palms. The outsized crowns look unique as does the bracelet, though there aren’t any pics of the buckle to see whether it is signed. The watch comes full with the unique plastic clamshell field and instruction booklet. Oh yeah, and did I point out it is a classic alarm watch? Man, this one has all of it….
Omega Seamaster ‘Bumper’
Classic “fats lug” Omega Seamasters are cool sufficient in their very own proper, however if you add in an unique black dial…now you’re speaking one thing particular. This 1954 (date by way of the serial quantity on the motion) Seamaster is has the basic metal fats lug case that measures 35mm, and appears to be unpolished, you possibly can nonetheless see the properly outlined chamfers on the fats lugs. The bumper automated caliber 344 is clear and runs effectively in response to the vendor. That’s all effectively and good, however the actual hero right here is the unique (IMHO) black sub-second dial. Most black dials you see on these classic Seamasters are redials, however there are some which can be legit, and it’s my opinion that this one is legit. The printing on the dial seems right, and there may be the anticipated quantity of patina on the dial. Good gold tone palms and hour markers full the look, together with the right clover leaf Omega signed crown.
