If 5 is good then 7 is better right? Well at least that is what Ricoh must have done when they decided to follow Citizen and put a 7 on their dial. I actually went to see a guy about a Citizen V2 and when I asked him if he had any other watches he pulled this out. The camera is usually very hard on camera but to the naked eye it looks ok. I was drawn to the colour and bezel design... similar to a Rolex Air-king. In the picture below you can see the tall crystal.. don't know if this style was original? Another detail is the day-wheel which is higher that the date wheel. Similar to early Seikos but Seiko fixed it in later models, Ricoh didn't and you will see this in early and late Ricoh watches. Caseback is pretty normal.. notice the notches in the bracelet for releasing the springbars are only on one side.. they did make the bigger though. Folded link bracelet looks original but feels cheaper than contemporary Seiko or Citizen bracelets. No other makings other than on the clasp. Inside we have your basic Ricoh automatic with hand-wind and pushbutton date set. Some dirt is present but it looks like it'll clean up well. rgds Anilv
