I’m offering one of my Cosmotron GX’s for sale – head only. This one, case number 4-370601, has a textured green dial with white chapter ring. The dial and crystal are in good condition, and it has a Kanji only day wheel :
Although the GX is a ‘Cosmotron’ it is in fact a tuning fork movement – a ‘hummer’ – rather than an electro-mechanical hybrid. These were not made for very long, and this one dates from October 1975:
The 11 jewel 3701B movement is Citizen’s own design (so, unlike the 3701A, is not marked ‘LIC. BULOVA’ ) although it is of course very similar to Bulova’s single coil 219. The watch is in good working order, keeping accurate time and the date and day set correctly. The day is not quick-set, so it’s advanced by turning past midnight when the crown is out one step, which also ‘hacks’ the movement. The date is advanced with the crown fully in, in the normal running position.
The movement stops properly when the crown is pulled right out, which switches it off and conserves battery power when not in regular use.
The case is in decent condition with some light scratches and marks, but no major dings. Case diameter is about 38mm, with 18mm lugs (despite the 20mm strap shown in some of my pics!) – here are more images of the watch from my ‘Featured Watches’ series of posts:
