Imho you don't need lots of 'complications' for a watch to appeal - this 1967 Citizen Crystate floats my boat Simple dial with italic Arabic hour markers looks pretty elegant methinks. It's a hand winder, with hacking ('second setting'), using the movement that was tuned for the Chrono Master:

Pretty basic and simple but I just love movement shots. Thats a lovely little movement you got there.

Stephen, do you know what the caliber is?
I ask because I now have half a dozen of these hand winders with different calibers;0201, 0950, 1802, etc.... none have that font on the movement!

I love handwinders. I have a Cal. 66 Seiko handwind which is probably as close as I can get to your beauty.

I love handwinds and your Citizen fits the bill perfectly.

the 0911, fist produced in 1967 and until around 1971 it seems. When tuned / adjusted for the 1967 chronomaster and chrono master special it was designated as the 0920 and 0930 respectively.

The 0911 came in two flavours, 21 jewels as in mine, and 22 jewels in the Crystate Deluxe, both beating at 18,000bph.

this one doesn't even have a dial, so no clues there either.

I also got a couple of 1802 Homers; one will clean up nicely. All it needs is a new stem.

These manual winders are from the same era as the Seiko 66 and 6602 calibers but by comparison, they look much better made and finished.

The rest of the lot are all 8200 caliber. Two of them run and a third can be fixed up; two others are rust buckets.
