It's not a Tag Heuer.

It's not a Seiko Presage.

It's not a Longines.

It's not an Omega.

It's not a Certina.

It's not a Hamilton.

It's pretty freakin radical if you ask me. And I've put in a lot of thought into this watch. And I've done hours of research deciding this watch is the one.

Dressy, yet sporty. Would look good with a suit or jeans and a tee. In fact this watch was my least favorite of the few different versions.

But as days went on I studied every picture I could.. (while I should have been working at times) and think for what I can acquire for the money I'm willing to withdrawal from my collection, that this is the most watch for the money.

What is it? You'll have to wait and see.

I'll stop bothering you guys with my "which wartch should i purchase that has a brown strap and has one of those no battery thing", WUSesqe style horseshit and go drink this fine Vodka here after working overtime everyday and coming in on Saturdays for a little while. First Saturday off early in months.....




.... oh and scooped this old Citizen for the price of a pack of Pall Mall's in NYC.

Actually, for most people, WIS or not ("not" defined as almost everybody in the world, particularly cute 21-year-old girls with large, firm breasts), this is the perfect everyday watch.

What? Huh? Where? Inquiring minds and all that. I mean, Pall Malls are 'spensive around here, but do tell.

Conj gets it, but no that's not the watch I'm purchasing. That's a "ah fuck it, it's $15" spur of the moment beater watch.

If it was made by a Swiss Maid I know Conj would be all over her it. John even has references below.

The watch I'll be purchasing is as Swiss as an Invicta.

And I am 99% sure no one here owns one from this brand, yet it is highly regarded.

Wait a tick - I still wanna know how a keen Citizen auto was procured for $15. Cripes, I live in NYC and you can't get the time of day here for $15.

No to all of those.

The Citizen was found on eBay. I'm wary of buying vintage on eBay but there were tons of pics including some of the movement and the seller has a good reputation.

If it's redone or fake, it's only $15. But if it's all good then I have a nice little watch to wear around the house.

I thought it had a little Citizen Signature collection vibe going on...

Apparantly you can if you're wearing a Citizen auto...

Tag is a solid brand, often underrated in the watch worlds. This example is handsome. But I suspect you can find it at a lower price.
