Reflex Remarkable for sure and a nice looking Citizen you have there.

mwadner 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 ...

I think that it sold in July. Asking big money, but I don’t know what it actually sold for.

Hi, they are actually identical in colour. The angle of my photo shows the solar cells reflecting the sky. It looks a little different at each small change in angle.

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.
Regards

Ross
