So after reading about the gamble that Bruce had in a recent purchase , I decided to take a gamble on a watch I was following, and the reason being it was different and listed as needing a battery what could possibly go wrong lol

Citizen  worldtimer chronograph approx 1980s and has a unique shutter movement or feature ? . it’s scratchy finish needs a polish and just ordered a battery it will be interesting to see how’s it works if it works

quite a rare and interesting watch
good luck i hope it works for you, i must admit though the old "needs a battery" confuses me scratch i dont get why the sellers dont just get one and try it ........weird:roll:

And the brucey gamble paid off a new battery and the shutter Chrono functions work , its basically like a camera shutter effect when you press the button the Chrono functions appear
