Citizen Vintage Sport

Post by Bahnstormer_vRS » Thu Mar 07, 2019 4:37 pm

Just picked this article up on WatchPro about the new for 2019 Citizen Vintage Sport (well, not exactly vintage but inspired by).

Perfect 43mm for me. :)

@neilj568 - mind you Neil, I do like the green and, from Citizen's website only £219.

Disappointing only 'head on' photo. Nothing to indicate the profile of the case etc.

Going into 'town' tomorrow. Might see if the local Ernest Jones have got them in yet.

Mind you, its about the same price as the Titanium Hamtun being discussed in the Kickstarter thread; but that's only 41mm (a tad small, wouldn't you agree?).

Guy - given your collection then 41mm is probably on the small side although the lowest I've gone is 40mm (Damasko DA43) but as ever the width dimension doesn't always correlate with the appearance on the wrist...!!!!

Much as the Damasko may be 40mm, the bezel is 42mm, which makes a difference but agreed, case width is not the be all and end all.

The gold indices on black dial version looks great
I miss all the great things that may never be.

My local H. Samuel has got a black dial, mesh strap version in their window. Looks, under the harsh shop window lighting, very much on the 'bling' side.

One thing that I noticed, maybe exacerbated by the lighting, is that the hour markers are very prominent when compared to the hands, which could do to be a bit wider and have more of a lume section.

Not rushing to buy one, but I feel that I'd like to investigate further.
