Today’s Watch – Citizen Junior, 9 Jewels

Back to a nice simple watch for this Hand Wind Weekend. And today it’s the Junior – this was the penultimate in the line of ‘Center Second’ watches Citizen made for many years. It came with 9, 11, 15 & 17 jewels, and although mine is an example of the 9 jewel one, with no anti-shock system, it is still nicely finished and has aged pretty well. These were launched in 1958 and the most sought after are those with fancy dials. There’s no serial number on this, so I can’t be sure of the exact production date, but it will be close to 1958:
