Got this in the mail today, a 1977 Citizen Challenge Timer. Just a lovely little watch in great condition. The gold dial is a challenge to photograph so excuse my quick cell phone shots. I'll take some proper shots soon.

My only issue is I couldn't figure out how to properly size the bracelet, so I put it on a black strap for now. Any help with the bracelet?

only if it was a little bigger, I would have wore mine more often.
Yeah, I'm amazed at how compact this thing is. I don't mind the size since I have smaller wrists anyway, and often wear vintage watches. But, yeah, that was somewhat of a surprise.

Nice! I like that one.

As I learn more about these, I'm seeing where mine has been changed. Seems the case was originally gold plated, but was refinished to a brush base metal finish, which to me looks better anyway.

I love playing with this thing. The flyback mechanism is really cool. It's amazing how much watch you can get for so little money.
