An Old Citizen Diver

CITIZEN Automatic Diver
Caliber 8200A Twenty-one jewels
Water Resist 150m

I picked up this well worn diver from ttsugar from Taiwan. A large case diver at 44mm; large relative to the newer Citizen divers you see in the shops now. The movement is clean and robust. It is a pity the glass is no longer in production (as this watch was from the 80s) else I would be able to admire the beautiful patina-ed dial!

Hi Koh YM,

Great pick up! I saw it at the seller's store as well.

Yours appears to be in very good condition. I have one just like it but the bezel is shot! Movement is bulletproof, very similar to Seiko's at the time.

It's my first time leaving a comment at your blog and want to let you know that you've got a very informative site and even better watch collection!

Keep up the good work!

Best regards,

The Flying Scotsman
