I needed an inside man. I was determined to make it mine.
The time has come for me to put my money where my mouth was. I knew I was fighting in the big league, with the serious Japanese collectors, but I was prepared for this day. I made up my mind regarding my highest bid that I was willing to commit to, and I added a little more. Then I added just a little bit more.!
Needles to say that I checked the tracking at least twice a day. I opened the box and here it was in all it’s glory: THE GLORIOUS!(If you want to read about another great find, my Holly Grail Citizen, you can do it here, The Citizen Chrono Master 5.
I have never seen another Citizen case polished like this. Some say that Grand Seiko is the best when it comes to case polishing, but maybe, just maybe they didn’t see this. The buckle is signed with GC logo and marked stainless steel. No wonder that one buckle alone sold a few years ago with over 7. USD. The black strap was original too but I changed it with a Citizen brown one for the photo shooting because the black one was almost to fragile to handle all the fuss. It was placed for safe keeping along with the GC tag.

What can I say, I love the way it looks, with the gold medallion, like the Chrono Masters. This time we don’t have an eagle inlay but a GC one.
What else? I could talk a lot about it, the simple, elegant look, so understated beauty and power at the same time, so clean and perfect in every way? Is this the best vintage Citizen? It could be. The Glorious also came in a few other options. Here are a few pictures from the catalogue with some variants, a date only and a solid gold one. You cab see the price at the time 5. It also came in a slightly different case design and one with dark blue dial. Click the pictures to magnify them for better details.

Vintage Citizen Case Backs & Watch Production Date. Introduction: Over the years Citizen have changed their watch case back markings, whilst they have also used special backs on their high grade watches and certain specific models. This page attempts to show the basic types and how to interpret the information that case backs give – often crucial to determining the authenticity of the watch. I’ll cover special case backs on a separate page. After the very early models using the .

The late 1. 95. 0s also saw the introduction of serial numbers, which are very useful to us of course, because we can determine the date of production.
More on that later. Before covering the three basic designs, a word about the very early models. Little information is stamped on the back – typically it may relate only to the case back material: I’ll provide more information on the early case backs in a .
During that period Citizen’s watch production accelerated enormously, particularly with the success in the domestic Japanese market of the . An ever wider range of hand winding watches was produced, and in 1. Citizen launched their first automatic, soon followed by the . Not all watches had a serial number at this time, although sometimes they may be found stamped inside the case back. Typically the early watches use snap / press on case backs, and case type markings therefore make their appearance on the .

Some gold plated and especially gold filled watches specified the thickness of the gold, in microns. Gold filled watches were also marked to show the quality of the gold used, e. K’3) . This watch has a day window only, and is therefore known as a Homer .
Other models also use the Homer movement, so will carry their own model name, e. Model names on the case back are more common in the early models than later pieces. Model . 1. 2- 3. 45. Serial Number – by 1. This example has no indication of water resistance – watches were increasingly marked . First are two Center Second models from the 1.
