I just received this one and I absolutely love it. From the first time I saw this model I knew that some day I would have one. What I like most about it, besides the E210 movement, is the white "corrugated" dial and the asymmetrical case. Here's a picture...

that's a nice model. I've been close several times and like you I will probably wind up with it someday. You need to see it in person to capture the detailing of the stripes on the white section and see that flyback function. I remember the first time I played with it I thought I broke something. :D and for a quartz it has a lot of heft to it.

It is an animal of a complex movement. Mostly assembled by hand :-*


For $300 BNIB, the Calibre 2100 is one of the best kept secrets in horology.

I agree. It has to be one of the best values for the money out there. It's hard to believe they could turn
any kind of a profit on it.

I am sure Citizen has fully recoup the original development and tooling costs associated with the Calibre 2100 by now. The E210 watches were first introduced in 2004. The Calibre 2100 was a strong hit in export markets were it is still being produced. In the Japan Domestic Market, the 2100 was discontinued circa 2006. It was a short lived watch in Japan. Not sure why.

For a brief period of time I tried to get my hands on one of these, very hard to find, 2004 limited edition E210 bull head chronographs....

If Citizen ever re-releases these E210 Bull head chronographs, I would buy one in a heart beat without any hesitation. These were made in very low numbers (I believe in 2 batches of 500 pieces each) for the Japan market so your odds of finding one in the used sales forum are next to none.

The Calibre 2100 is, in many ways, a spiritual successor to the Citizen 8110 automatic chronographs of the 1970s:



Note that the 2004 E210 Limited Editon bullhead chronographs were a homage to the old 8110 mechanical chronographs that preceded them.

Yup that Citizen E210 Bullhead is a beauty. Too bad they are hard to find and priced to match :'(

Congrats! Had the black version and loved the size, heft and feel of the watch and bracelet. The complications were too complicated for me ;) (pun intended). But i was too afraid of scratching the wide xtal and sold it off :'(
Maybe i will get another :)
