Today’s Watch – Citizen Crystate Deluxe, 22 Jewels

No surprise, given yesterday’s featured watch, that today’s weekend hand winder is the Crystate Deluxe. With one more jewel in the 0911 hacking movement than the standard Crystate, the dial adds ‘Deluxe’ to the name and a single applied star to differentiate it. This one has a separate chapter ring, and has the older style case/model number of HOOS3003. The crystals on these are mineral glass, so I guess this where the unusual name of Crystate is derived from – both of this weekend’s watches are on original solid link bracelets:

Here’s more on the Crystate Deluxe, featuring a different model, case number 4-020308:
