Following my last post on Citizen’s orange dialled export (‘waterproof’) 100m diver, Bert has kindly sent photos of his Parawater version of the 67-5776 model – but with a two-tone dial:
I have seen one or two other examples of this, with the same yellow raised chapter ring – I had wondered if the lighter colour is a result of UV fading since I didn’t have good images, but the colour appears solid, and Bert has looked at his close up and it looks very uniform:
So this one does appear to be an original variant – I’d be interested in other comments before I add it to the Diver reference page. Many thanks to Bert for his pics – he also has another orange version the slightly earlier 61-5773, so here they are side by side – note the different type of crowns used:
I think the right model is a 67-5776….?
Hi Marco – ah yes you are right. I hadn’t spotted that the dial code includes ’72’ which is the movement used in this model. So it is a 67-5776, rather than the 61-5773 which uses the 52 movement. Thank you for raising this, I’ll amend the reference article asap. Stephen
Just checked and the reference article is ok, so no need to amend it, although I could add the 72 two tone model to the 67-5776 section. I’ve now amended the post that incorrectly described it as a 61-5773. Stephen
