On the hard to find original bracelet, this Citizen Spyder got its nickname due the lume plots looking like spiders legs.  Model reference 67-9119.


From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in July 1981.  This makes it one of the last ones produced.


You can find a nice independent write up on the Spyder model from Fifth Wrist here.

So this example has the original bracelet,  That scarce bracelet has been shortened in the past, and it is also possible that the black infill has been repainted at some point.  But it is far better to have the bracelet than not to, and a universal bracelet extender should make it fit most wrists.  The movement is Citizen’s 8110A.  This is a column wheel, vertical clutch, high beat chronograph movement with handwinding, quickset day and date and fly-back capability – meaning you can simply depress the top pusher to instantly restart the stopwatch.  It’s competitor from Seiko, the 7139, may have been launched first but can not be handwound, doesn’t have flyback and runs at a slower beat.  The base metal case has a few marks as we haven’t had the watch polished, but these shouldn’t be bad enough to put anyone off the watch.  The internal bezel, adjusted using the crown at 10, works smoothly.  In fact all functions work well, including the day wheel quick set (it can be in English or French) which to operate you pull the crown out to position one, and press the bottom chrono pusher.  Overall this is a nice example.
