Battery arrived, so today is a Citizen day. I'm not sure if this 3801 calibre is from November 1985 or 1995, my gut feeling is 1985, but I'm sure someone with a little more knowledge will put me right.
(Ignore the arm hair shadows on the glass)
The rather obvious "double ding" in the glass shows up rather well either side of the second hand in this picture. There are one or two other battle scars consistent with age. It may be no great looker, but considering it only cost £0.99p plus postage (the battery cost more than the watch), I think its not too bad.
I guess that is more of an indictment of our throwaway society than any failing of the watch.
Thank you all for this warm welcoming!
I´m sure there are lots of wisdom in this forum when help is needed and maybe even I can help out with something.
Meanwhile I will read through the older posts and maybe even post an odd picture or two from my quirky collection of watches I wear on a random... nearly daily basis.
