Citizen’s Jet Automatic Movement

I’ve added a new page focusing on what is a unique feature of Citizen’s vintage automatics from the early 1960s – the ‘Jet’ movement. With its circular geared rotor this was Citizen’s standard caliber for its automatics in the early to mid-1960s before moving over to the more familiar swinging weight type from around 1965.

The new page provides infomation and pics, as well as a little video – there’s also a summary of the movement numbers, production dates and model names. Hopefully it provides a useful addition to sit alongside the Movement Table.

Although the swinging weight rotor is efficient and reliable and is the standard method for automatic winding, the Jet rotor is more aesthetically rewarding in my opinion – i.e. it looks cool 🙂
