¥3,575.74 CNY

ソード型の大振りな時針が特徴的なシチズンのヴィンテージダイバーです。

「クリストロン」は1970年代のシチズンのクォーツ時計に付けられた名称で、様々なモデルが販売されていました。この時計はクリストロンの150m防水仕様の本格的なダイバーウォッチとして生産されました。

セイコーダイバーの人気から、シチズンのダイバーウォッチも徐々に注目され始めています。特に自動巻きの「チャレンジダイバー」はこういった逸話があり、特に人気があります。

『1983年、オーストラリアのロングリーフビーチで発見された、CITIZENの自動巻きダイバーズウォッチ「チャレンジダイバー」。海底で発見されたときにはフジツボで覆われながらも、なんと波の揺れでゼンマイが巻かれ、時を刻み続けていました。』

自動巻きのものは中々のお値段がしますが、クォーツはまだそこまでには至っておらず手が出しやすいレンジです。この時計の大きな特徴は大きなソード型の時針では無いでしょうか。ベンツ針や矢印の形状が多い中で、この形はインパクトがあります。

ケースサイズは42mmですが、リューズガードまで計測した際の値ですので実際にはベゼル径の40mmぐらいのサイズ感です。同じ42mmのセイコーの7548ダイバーより小さく感じます。

ガラスにスレこそあるものの、全体的なコンディションも非常に良く、ヴィンテージダイバーの1本目として非常におすすめの時計です。

オーバーホール済み。オーバーホール時に電池交換済み、各部のパッキン交換済みです。6ヶ月保証となります。

【Description】

The name “Crystolon” was given to Citizen’s quartz watches in the 1970s, and various models.

This watch was produced as a professional diver’s watch that was water resistant to 150 meters.

Due to the popularity of Seiko Diver, Citizen’s diver watches are gradually beginning to attract attention.

The self-winding “Challenge Diver” is especially popular because of this anecdote.

“In 1983, CITIZEN’s automatic diver’s watch “Challenge Diver” was discovered at Long Reef Beach in Australia.
It was covered with barnacles when it was found at the bottom of the ocean, but to my surprise, the spring was wound by the waves and kept ticking.”

The automatic ones are moderately priced, but the quartz ones are not quite there yet and are in an affordable range.

The big feature of this watch is probably the large sword-shaped hour hand. While most of the hands are in the shape of mercedes or arrows, this shape has a great impact.

The case size is 42mm, but this is the value when measured up to the crown guard, so the actual size is about 40mm in bezel diameter.

It feels smaller than Seiko’s 7548 Diver, which is also 42mm.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
