Innovative Citizen Crystron 1975 with LED Flashing TIME SET

Post19 Dec 2017, 03:40

Together with a bunch of quite rare watches, I have received the following one WITH A QUITE INNOVATIVE LED APPROACH FOR EARLY QUARTZ WATCHES + A SETTING button existent previously only in the Citizen Cosmotron 7803A Movement – the Special Version
https://sweep-hand.org/2013/11/28/cosmo ... l-version/

But the Quartz Crystron 1974/1975 with LED Flashing and with a PUSH button at 8 HOUR - basically the Citizen 8600 movement, had some NEW/INNOVATIVE approaches, like:
- to flash THE LED when the second hand reach 12 Hours indicator! :grin1:
but even more:
1) if an Hour Signal was provided by a Radio Station and the second hand is between 31-59 seconds...the 8 HOUR BUTTON will simply RESET the second hand to the correct time!
2) if an Hour Signal was provided by a Radio Station and the second hand is between 01-30 seconds...a push on the 8 HOUR BUTTON will frozen the second hand + the LED indicator will flash EXACTLY the number of seconds remaining until the CORRECT TIME!!! After that moment the second hand will start to move again!! :grin1:


One can see it at work, in an Youtube movie (NOT my watch!) below:

and now, some pictures of my recently arrived watch, sporting now another Roberto Cavalli genuine Python strap: :grin1:

PS. I already know that was already available a Seiko Cal. 3922/3923 in 1972-1974 with a pulsating power indicator light (LED), but those watches HAVE NOT a QUICK TIME SETTING button/approach! :grin1:

Every watch should have its own story...consequently, a watch collector has to be a good storyteller :)
