My Most Accurate Timepiece…..

…….is this wall clock, made in the late 1960s I believe:

SONY DSC

The Rhythm company became affiliated to Citizen in the mid 1950s, and clocks and some watches continued to be made using that name. This 30 day pendulum clock requires very little adjustment, typically about 30 seconds when being wound so only 1 second or so per day, which isn’t bad for a 50 year old piece.  The day date feature is great, as is the power reserve indicator which scrolls from right to left until it is completely red to indicate that winding in required. It also strikes on the hour and half hour, but the bell is pleasantly soft so it can be running all the time without disturbing the whole house!

    Hello Its a long time I have this old Citizen watch and can not find any information about him. Would you be so kind as to send me some details about the watch (photos added), model?, manufacture date?, original band? and any other relevant information. Thank you in advance. Daniel P.N. The watch works perfectly.

      Hi Daniel – thanks for visiting my blog. I’m afraid that visitors can’t post photos here – you can post a link if you can upload them somewhere like Photobucket. Or let me know if you want me to email you so you can send them to me. Stephen

      Hi Sean – this was the style of these wall clocks at that time, so Seiko, Rhythm and Citizen and one or two other smaller makers made this style. Stephen
