I had to ask this after the similar Seiko post :p

In my case it is probably my modded Exceed minute repeater 6760, but as a caliber the Avalon 6720 wold-time might be more uncommon ...

spectacular, Catalin! Have never seen those models before....Euro editions or JDM??
Thank you Thian ! :)

Both JDM ... generally I believe that both Exceed and Avalon were JDM marketing/brand experiments from Citizen, but Exceed seems to be now 'here to stay' while the last Avalon was more than 15 years ago ... very good starting point for Citizen history is of course http://citizen.jp/discovery/model/age/index.html (URL with Google translation is http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fcitizen.jp%2Fdiscovery%2Fmodel%2Fage%2Findex.html&sl=ja&tl=en ) and on that page there are also links sorted after collections and so on ...

As you still can find them in the bay, they might not be rare, but I might call my two Thermos at least unusual:

Bulova issued a similar model using the same Citizen movement in the 90s in their Millenia Grand Complication model:

Which one came first?
If you mean from caliber 6760 - this one below was actually the first:

http://citizen.jp/discovery/model/1990ft/avalon_superalarm.html

The caliber was also used (only) in limited editions from a number of other companies (other than Bulova which is today owned by Citizen most notably being Shellman, also Invicta and I believe Jaques Lemans, but still the manufacturer of the caliber in all cases was Citizen/Miyota) and a slight variation is used in the current Campanola Minute Repeater - that being the reason why I said that 6720 is a less common caliber :p
