Citizen Crystron 8600

Post by domecurb on Mon Oct 10 2016, 14:40

This rare watch dated to aroung 1974 ish ! and features a 7 jewel movement which was basically a movement you could set accurately using the red led at 12.......
You use the setting button at 8 o'clock. During normal use the LED at 12 blinks every minute. If you press the setting button and the seconds are between 1-30, the second hand stops and the LED blinks every second. If the seconds are 31-59, the second hand resets to zero and the LED continues blinking. The second hand will then start at the next press of the setting button.
this watch is in superb almost NOS condition with a few storage marks, needless to say it is running perfectly








note the red LED at 12.

That is really something special, what a great watch.

No wonder you were delighted to find it amongst your recent job lot of watches & in such good condition. I've not seen one before or was aware of this use of technology presumably in the 1970s.

Definitely one to enjoy & appreciate hopefully with some wrist time. Very Happy
