Have this watch with me for sometime now.
Searched a while for info regarding this watch. Did'nt find any.
Its a 25j Citizen '7' 'Super King' Automatic with day and date.
I have no clue regarding the value of this watch, but i bought the watch because of the movement. Its kind of different one, will try to open the back and take pics of the movement.
Great watch, pretty heavy though.
Anyone got one like this?
How much is it worth?

That looks unusual. The date is below the 12, but what is that at the 3 positions ?

I can't quite make it out from your pic.

It`s the date, the `5` next to Fri indicates the fifth day of the week, a system I`ve personally only seen on some Japanese watches, can`t see the point really blink.gif

Nice watch, not sure but I`d suspect it might be circa 1960`s as to value,well whatever someone is willing to pay.

days of the week translated literally from japanese to english come out as oneday, twoday, threeday...
so i suppose if you dont read english then having the arabic number is close enough.
i never met anyone in japan who couldn't read arabic numerals, even though they have kanji numbers as you would expect.



am working from very suss memory though, so of course i could be very wrong laugh.gif
