Hi,

It has been about a year when I started the process of downsizing my collection. Most of the watches I was selling were mainly Seiko. But along the way, I added the new Seiko Turtle SRPC49J and then to compensate for the Seiko 7548 I let go more Made in Japan came in...

*Seiko 7002 7001 and SKX007 :

I can not post for sale yet in SCWF since I didn't reach 50 posts yet ( was collecting mostly Swiss Vintage until now ). Meanwhile I post for sales elsewhere and have many references.

You can PM me if you have any request.

Citizen Super Jet and 62-6198 Divers.

Now for the serious vintage part of Citizen and since I am more into Diving Watches, the following two represent well what Vintage Citizen Divers are :
*Super Jet 150m Parawater with the 1150 movement (39 jewels) and the 62-6198 Waterresistant which is prefer over the 52-0110 ( with plastic movement holder ).

So the contender for Seiko is of course Citizen ( Orient being under Seiko since early 2000 ). Most of us enjoy Citizen mainly for it Eco Drive technology. So I am starting with those two divers before going into the vintage part of the brand.
*BN0150 and BN0100 "Excalibur" :

I just got the BNO151 with the blue dial and band and I love it. Lots of watch for not a whole lot of money. Can't beat them.

Vega 100m Quartz Diver and Orient Quartz Diver

Moving forward in time, it was the Quartz Era. Citizen had several Sub Brands such as VEGA and OXY. I found this rare VEGA DIVER Orange Dial with the famous Paddle Hands taken from the Citizen Quartz Divers. About the same time, I also found this rare Orient Quartz Diver. They both have Golden Hands :

* VEGA 100m Quartz Diver and Orient Quartz Diver.

Citizen Kamen V3 Limited Edition and Citizen Titanium Diver NY0054

To finish the Citizen Diving Part, I selected those two modern divers...The Citizen Kamen V3 Limited Edition ( 500 pieces ) and the discontinued Citizen Titanium 200m Diver NY0054. The Citizen Kamen bring me a lot of memories especially my childhood with the Kamen V3 series in the early 70s and it is this same NY0040 model that was the Marina Militare choice around year 2000. Also I love the Green Bezel that remind me of the 50th Rolex Submariner ( that I stupidly sold many years ago LOL ). For the Citizen Titanium 200m Diver, it is a special model that many didn't really pay attention, but personally it is one of the nicest Dive Watch that Citizen ever made, especially with the Blue Dial that contrasts well with the Grey Titanium Case.

Citizen Auto Dater 40m

Now for the interesting part of the Vintage Citizen is beside of their divers but still in the Parawater Era (60s-early 70s), there are some magnificent Classic / Sport Watches. Their size are between 40-36mm.

Following to the Super Jet pre-diver, the Auto Dater is Citizen one of the most classiest and nicest vintage watch using its 41xx movement with a size of 43mm including crown.

Vintage Citizen Seven

Continuing with the classic size ( 38mm-36mm ), I am amazed with the diversity of the models, designs and technicalities under the Citizen Seven Era. The V2 at is more like a Racing watch ( especially if worn with a Tropic Strap ) while the Seven Star Deluxe is more like a Diver with the lumed hands ( Lollipop second hand ) and markers.
