Great looking Citizen Automatic Cal. 8200 21
Jewels with 13 to 24 hour markings on outer bezel. Nicely recessed dial and
inner bezel with 10, 20 ... minute markings.
This is a watch that can be compared to a Seiko 5 of the lower tier, but the case and bracelet are of a much better quality for the same price. And the Miyota (Citizen's ETA) Cal. 8200 is a similarly durable workhorse as the 7S26. But the good news is, it can be handwound! The Miyota Caliber 82xx do not incorporate a hacking mechanism, but they contain a handwinding mechanism. The Seiko 7S26 needs to be "swayed" (do not shake automatic watches!) in circle of about 8 inch diameter (imagine you hold a glass of good Cognac) for about 30 seconds to be wound enough to be worn. The Miyota takes only a couple of turns of the crown and it will be sufficiently wound to be worn.
If you are looking for an inexpensive beater with an astonishing quality and finish, then this is probably the one to go for.
Case diameter (excl. crown): 36.5 mm
Height: 11 mm
Lug to Lug: 41 mm
Bracelet tapered 22 mm to 16 mm
