I am looking for either a Seiko or a Citizen JUST like this one only w/o both day/date feature and at least 40mm in diameter.
Any ideas??
TIA

Almost forgot...... larger crown as well and NO crown guards!
Doesnt have to be new and can also be Vintage as well.

the very first thing that sprang to mind was Orient!
Then I started thinking along the lines of vintage Seikos. There are probably dozens that fill this description and I'm betting you can probably even choose a caliber; 6 series, 5 series or 7 series that will have what you seek. Bo doubt there are several in the GS series but I doubt you want to spend that kind of moolah

I'll start by looking through my collection then saved pics and post anything similar

It's a handwinder with the 66B caliber movement from the early 60's. I have a couple of watches wit this movement and they are excellent performers and obviously as robust as heck

... back in '67 I think my grandfather paid around $30.00 for it when he was in Tokyo It is an even 36 mm in dia. less crown. I'm sure you could find one from one of the other WIS's here or across the street. Sorry, mine's not for sale

You should not have to pay more than about $30 to $40 for a really well kept specimen.

All of mine were considerably less; the were Ramon treasures that didn't run but all of them responded to a good service and only one needed a new part!

Other calibers to look for are the 6300 and 7000. There are a plethora of other ones but I don't remember them all at the moment...those are all hand winders. If you look at autos then the field is wide open
