Citizen Watch Co., Ltd., was founded in 1930 as the Shokosha Watch Research Institute by Japanese jeweler Kamekichi Yamazaki. The company was later renamed Citizen in 1937.
Here we have a beautiful and immaculately preserved March 1965 Citizen Lady Daisy Date. Its silvery-white dial, date window, 3D-styled silvery baton indices and dauphine hands have undergone a deep cleaning to reveal minimal signs of aging.
Its rectangular shaped silver case was also cleaned and buffed as best as possible without compromising its shape and lines albeit a few minor scratches that are barely noticeable to the naked eye. The acrylic crystal with date magnifier is original was given a good rub to remove all age marks and scratches albeit a few miniscule scratches do remain.
The crown is located at the traditional 3H position and is easily accessible.
The movement was carefully stripped and underwent a good clean-up, servicing and general calibration on 9 September 2023. Its timekeeping is excellent i.e. ± 1 minute every 24 hours, and should be able to operate unhindered for the next 5 to 10 years thereby providing the owner peace of mind.
The case width and height are approximately 20mm (without crown) and 33mm respectively. The lug width is 17mm; and the multi-coloured suede fabric strap can accommodate wrists up to 18.0cm.
Due to its age, this timepiece has not been water-resistant tested.
The pictures provided show the watch is in very good condition. It has also been demagnetised to improve parts reliability, minimise wear & tear, and improve accuracy. The only drawback is the lack of documentation and original box. An aftermarket box or purposeful carrying case will be provided instead.
Bear in mind that this watch has seen many of the previous owners’ ups and downs in life, and should be cherished and preserved for the next generation to savour such engineering beauty.
This particular Citizen Daisy Date is very rare and not easily found online, and the ones that are online are in horrible condition.
Do also bear in mind that it will cost between S$ 120.00 to S$ 150.00 for a general servicing, an estimated S$ 40.00 for basic calibration, and S$ 40.00 to clean and buff the watch case - these costs do not apply when purchasing this timepiece. So, if anyone was to sell such a timepiece at a low price yet claim that it has been serviced, one has to ask what kind of servicing was conducted, if any.
This is an eye-catching collectible timepiece that would make a beautiful present for that special someone born in March 1965!
This is a must-have for the Citizen die-hard fan, and in fact, any serious watch collector for that matter!
