Introducing the 1961 Citizen "Deluxe".

The Deluxe was released in 1958 as Citizen's first authentic thin men's three-hand watch.

Although it is a thin watch, it is equipped with the latest technology at the time, such as ``Profux'' which improves oil retention in the bearings, ``Parashock'' earthquake protection device, and ``Finox'' spring that does not break, making it extremely durable. is a model that has been recognized by the Swiss Watch Inspection Institute as ``particularly excellent'' and has excellent performance.

It is one of Citizen's most representative models, with a record of selling 1 million units in a single model.


The Citizen "Deluxe" we are introducing this time is a later model with 23 jewels.

The dial has a clean white dial, gold-colored upright bar indexes, and dolphin hands, making it a simple vintage Citizen watch.
The sun mark at the 12 o'clock position and the pet name in blue letters are a nice accent, giving the watch a gorgeous look.

The case is made of 14K gold-plated material, which changes to a mature gold color over time.
Therefore, it blends very well with your skin when you wear it, and you won't feel any unpleasantness that is characteristic of gold.
The case and indexes are the same color, creating a sense of unity and creating a classy and well-organized look.

The "Deluxe" allows you to fully enjoy the elegance unique to vintage watches.

The movement is equipped with a hand-wound Cal.117 with 23 jewels.

It incorporates the latest technology at the time, such as the earthquake-resistant device "Parashock," "Profix," which improves oil retention, and the unbreakable mainspring, "Finox," and has a highly durable structure that is designed for everyday use. .
It is a highly complete movement with excellent accuracy.


Size: Height: 44.2mm , Width: 38.6mm , Thickness: 7.7mm , Weight: 32g .

It's an amazing 7.7mm thin, considering it was a thin watch at the time, so it won't get caught on your sleeve.
The classy gold color goes well with formal outfits such as jackets, but replacing it with a suede pull-through belt gives it a casual feel, so it's fun to pair it with dark-colored outfits like denim jackets.


In terms of condition, the case has only minor scratches and no peeling or noticeable scratches.
The dial has some dirt on the edge around the 9 o'clock position, but there is no problem with visibility.
The movement is in good condition and works without problems.
