Actually it is quite amazing when you think about it. These two were side-by-side in the factory then departed for who knows where in the world for decades and for a brief moment their paths crossed again, if only virtually.
stuff like this is cool. thanks for sharing ...

|carl3989||Wow that's cool. I'd be tempted to buy if I were you. Great conversation piece for sure. It even comes with a manual, try to get that with a new Citizen watch.|

|Chronomaster||"Of all the gin joints in all the world", what are the chances of that happening ? Consecutive serials yet different colors, what a very cool discovery for sure! Thanks for sharing that this can be a truly small world we live in.|

Consecutive serial numbers
Well how about that. I was browsing through some images of the 8620 Citizen Crystron Solar to get a good pic of the original rechargeable cell that came with them, and saw this piece which was sold on Ebay in July. No big deal I thought, nice piece and with box and papers too. I knew mine was early, so when was this one made? OK. It has the serial one digit prior to (one of) mine. I think that that is pretty remarkable. I bought mine from YJ in a non-operating condition, and then this one crops up. These watches are not that uncommon.
The one that was sold on Ebay (seller's pic);
With its serial.
And then mine;
And my serial;
This is the first time I've come across a serial number that is adjacent to that of one of my watches.
