Has scratches on the crystal, but I really love it nonetheless.

The thing I like most about the Citizen Crystron 50-3053 is that it was introduced slightly before the Seiko 0624, and carries a similar quality and appearance, yet they are bother very different at the same time. If you look at the build quality, they are both all SS with nice elegant designs, and with a colored LCD polorizer (0624, is yellow, and the Citizen 50-3053 is more green). Also, they have almost the exact same features Hour, Min, Seconds, with a "light" feature. Adam has a great example of the Citizen Crystron 50-3053 on his website:

I actually do not know which watch is more rarer as far as the manufacturing numbers, but I would venture to guess that the Citizen Crystron 50-3053 is slightly rare? I say this because I hardly ever see them show up on eBay, but I could be wrong. If anyone know more about this watch, let me know, I would like to know more about it.

Sorry everyone, I got the date wrong on the Citizen Crystron 50-3053 watch as it was produced 2 years later in 1976. I thought the Seiko 06245 was manufactured in 1976, but I guess I was wrong. Again, I apologize.
