Today’s Watch – Citizen Automatic Chronograph 67-9011 (#2), 23 Jewels

Staying with the ‘bullhead’ design today, and this is a nice alternative to the more usual 67-9011 that I featured on May 29th. This has a black dial and printed rather than applied Citizen logo. The white lumed main hands and hour markers, a multi-coloured minutes register and orange chronograph hands give it a sharp and very clear appearance, whilst the black day and date wheels blend in nicely. The nickel alloy case and black bezel are the same as the more common version. The movement is the 8110A of course, with hand winding, quick-set day and date and fly-back functionality.

My example is from August 1976 – interestingly the dial number (901051) isn’t in Citizen’s casing parts catalogue from 1977, so maybe this version had only a short production run. This would explain the relatively low number seen for sale these days:
