Help Identifing a watch Citizen

Question

I am trying to find information on this watch. on back of cast: Citizen 25 Jewels  4-760182TA BLG-K GN-1-S  and Japan imprinted on bridge. On the front Citizen Automatic.

This one was fixed in the past and the gentleman removed the second hand and the post that it runs on. I am wondering if he changed out the cannon pinion. If someone knows where I can find parts or and old movement I could strip down to replace what is missing that would be a big help.

Client said this came from an uncle that owned a watch repair shop in the 60's. He told him that this watch was a  Dealer example to show the customers how the watch worked. I would really like to find and replace the original second hand if I could.

Thanks, Charlie of OldManTique

That is a Citizen Skeleton . I had one of those . Dropped the clutch wheel when servicing it . I search almost everywhere for a replacement.  I ended up selling it as donor watch. 

Maybe it's easier to find one today? Think the movement is 7290 ?

    • Some updates, I measured the  mainspring barrel of a 6498 and it's 16mm. I also tried loading a 10mm mainspring on an undersized winder, it did not load fully. So I answered my own question hehe. thanks.
    • Thanks. A small correction to my earlier post,  it is a Poljot 2614.2H, not a Vostok. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&Poljot_2614_2H
    • I've been thinking about getting a Russian watch myself. Nice piece Andy.
    • This is the progress so far. The first image is the ebay seller's pic and the description was "Does not start, maybe battery but unable to confirm". In reality, it wouldn't wind, wouldn't set and the scratched up crystal looked even worse in real life (and the second hand had fallen off in the post), but I figured it had to be the twin of the one I already had, and therefore was well worth the 0.99p I bid.
    • Thanks for the correction regarding the movement. You are spot on  with the fiddly calendar works, the first one I looked at, I launched those two springs more times than I care to mention, however forewarned is forearmed, so this one came as no surprise, and I even remembered which way round everything went without having to dig out my pictures of the first teardown.  If you are aware of the issues and take care to do things very gently, the calendar works go back together reasonably easily. I did mange to gocha myself with the keyless works by pulling the crown out with the stem in the wrong position, but I knew I had been an idiot the moment I did it, so I only managed to indulge in that one screwup. The watch is running well, but I haven't attempted to adjust it yet. Beat error is around .1 to .3ms and it kept up a good pace, within 20 seconds or so over the course of the day even without me tinkering with it. I'll let the lubrication settle and do a bit more with it tomorrow. The amplitude is still a little low at around 240 fully wound, so there is scope for a little improvement in that too. The other one runs around 270, so there is no reason to think this wont. I have an almost complete spare movement, including a mainspring, etc.so if I need parts I have them.   That red and gold Poljot on your "About me" page is a cracker, as are the others in your collection.
