the watch database!! It's a "composite" watch, but made with authentic Citizen components of the "right" period. Code #s are:
Citizen calibre 8100
Yes, it's a chronograph! Like the Seiko calibre 7018, it is 23j, has a 30Min accumulator + chrono seconds hand, and has Flyback functionality. Unlike the Seiko, it is a hi-beat [28,800bph]!
Have a look:
OK, so have you spotted what's "wrong" with this one??? Here's a closer look that may give a hint:
OK, now it should be more evident; there's a tach bezel AND a tach track on the dial. Why have both??? That's easy - the bezel should have been a thin, plain bezel, but what is there is a tach bezel from a different model Citizen !!
At any rate, I got this one from Singapore years ago knowing it was "composite" & convinced the seller of this fact [got a discount from ask price too!]. It was overall, quite clean & that tach bezel is not easy to find in relatively clean condition. It came on the rubber strap you see. With the strap and the tach bezel, the watch has the look of a rather unusual model Diver, don't you think???
Even better, I also have the 8110 that correctly uses the bezel. It also came from Singapore [another seller] and is in near mint condition. I'll put it up in the database section when I have chance.
Thanks for looking & let me know if it's just me or does it really look "diver-like" to you too???

the 'Spaceman' chrono used either a black or white dial (mine's black as you can see!!) with the rather groovy hexagonal sub-dials. Great movement, I have three watches with it and it is very accurate in all of them.
