Want An Original Citizen Bullhead? – A Quick Buying Guide

I’ve added a page about buying a vintage Citizen ‘bullhead’, correctly called the Challenge Timer.

I’ve seen a lot of Challenge Timers on auction sites – well, on eBay – which have been re-furbished and often have after market dials. So to provide a bit of advice and information to help potential buyers, the new page provides key information as a guide to buying, especially if originality is what you’re after.

      Hi Tom,
      thanks for your comments. I’m afraid sourcing parts for vintage Citizens is difficult, so it’s usually a matter of finding a donor movement. I don’t know where else you might find the movement ring – I need one myself for a different 8110 model!
