1974 Citizen Blackie auto day date watch

This Citizen Blackie (not a nickname – the real model name!) is a watch that stands out.  With a 21 jewel, 6501 movement.  Model number 61-0780


From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in November 1974.


The watch case is made from steel that is coated with brown and gold, and on the whole this is in good order.  The brown is worn through at the rear, but that is not visible while the watch is being worn.  The acrylic crystal has no chips or cracks, and has been polished to remove any light surface scratches.  The original signed crown is a little tarnished.  We have used a brown leather strap, as was originally used by Citizen looking at the black and white adverts, and a gold bracelet to show two distinct looks that this watch can have.  The light green dial is very clean, and still has all the lume plots in place and glowing.

Please see the HD video below for more detail.


Approximately 41.9 mm wide including the signed crown, 11.7 mm thick.  Takes an 18 mm strap.
