eccles I picked up a nice Record master a few years ago. I always think of them as a one button chrono but with two buttons!

akable Thanks for the nice write up Itau.

Here is my Rally Custom, as you can see I am also looking for a replacement crystal.



I see that your Rally Custom example seems to have the same strap that is on mine.



This is an 18mm Tropic rally strap with a stainless steel Citizen buckle.



I believe that this strap may be original to the watch but I have not seen definitive proof on this.

Does anyone know the original strap for this model?

mikaelfj Here's my Rally Custom - since the picture was taken I've been so unfortunate to chip the glass (not sure if it is the original).
If someone knows how to get hold of a replacement crystal - please let me know.

Sir Les Beautiful watch Itau -- classic, simple, elegant. Nice photos too -- but you forgot the obligatory wrist shot!

I have the Rally Custom version:

Sweet, I used to have one like that. It was my only RecordMaster. Like the Citizen divers, as much as I liked them, it was just too hard to find good examples, information, parts, etc.

John_D Beautiful watch. I'm very impressed by the quality of Citizen watches in the early 1970's .
I have a very nice Cosmotron from 1971 that my photographs do not do justice to

The Record Master by Citizen

I present the Master Record of Citizen , a watch little known and very rare that I was fascinated by its beauty . First, it took two years of research , comes from Bulgaria and is the first that I find in very good condition and all original .
The history of this timepiece is simple , Citizen has often been overshadowed by Seiko and sometimes was towed . As in this case , Seiko in 1964 had brought out for the Olympics and Asian Games its wonderful cronostop , a mono-pusher chronograph manual winding , Citizen needs some years to come out with its product, in 1967. But the wait was rewarded by a fantastic watch. Definitely like Seiko . Aesthetically, the classic line in a 36mm case , rather thin , makes a fine blend of sportiness and elegance , it is mechanically superior to Seiko because it presents the flyback function , which in a cronostop is definitely something useful and interesting .
Nice and classical dial with tachymeter scale in areas outside , the second hand can be gray or orange . There is also an even more rare variant with white dial .
Product until the early 70s , must give way to the emerging automatic .
For me in this reference everything went perfectly , line , measures , dimensions , color , harmony , balance , technique . Nothing to be sent to the Swiss , nothing .
Reference 63-0110 , year of production in 1971 .

Some photos and details.







Buttons Are Not Equal in the time trial , That of the flyback ( 4 hours ) and More robust Act to absorb the " barrel" of the flyback drive fast , interesting.



The crown is logoed , notice the case for a very flat time trial .



Nice the case back , with excellent written test .



Finally the movement , a gem and well finished , certainly lives up to rival the Japanese Seiko . Even in this perspective we see the button on the flyback more squat and sturdy.
