Having one heck of a time finding any info on this watch . Serial # starts with 807 so my best guess is 1988 ? Does anyone know what Base Metal CNG means ? Also the # 6100 is on the back so I am right in assuming that is the movement # . First Post Thanks In advance Indy

You're right that the movement number is 6100. Not sure when this was produced, since the area I'm most familiar with is the older mechanical movements. I would think that 1988 fits, although it could be 1998.

Here's a link to a tech manual (not dated I'm afraid): http://www.citizenwatch.com/downloads/techguides/6100.pdf

Not seen the case material code 'CNG' before - my best guess is Citizen Nickel Gold (plating).

That's very true Indy. It's also true that there is not much collecting interest in quartz watches, unless they are high end and /or very early examples. It's very difficult to find info on them as a result, and many hundreds of models were made. I can't provide any more info than in my first reply I'm afraid, other than saying that the code 'GN-4-S' relates to the water resistant case type. I do wish Citizen had dated their technical manuals!

Sweephand , I understand what you are saying and you have actually educated me on a few things I wasn't aware of . I knew it would be long shot but I thought maybe just maybe someone knew something ? I wonder if there are any others out there like me whom have spent a small fortune buying ,selling and trading high end watches only to find themselves messing around and still getting excited about vintage automatic/quartz Seiko/ Citizen Divers ? Best Indy
