Citizen AQ4100-65W LE

Post by jason_recliner » May 14th 2024, 6:40pm

LE release from late last year:

38mm Super Titanium, Platinum Duratect coating, double-domed sapphire, Tosa washi paper dial. Is Citizen now making the finest dials in the (real) world?

If it had the retro 'Chronomaster' text as well as the eagle I'd be extremely tempted (watches with both are very rare).

Purdy, then I saw the price.

That's a lot for a sole-lass Quarts.
You're paying for the case, bracelet, hands, dial... movements only cost a few hundy, max. But yeah, still crazy money.

You can pick up one of these aq4000 models for <1200 USD new and shipped. It is The Citizen, chronomaster, eagle is in back,steel case with duratec, this is the amish version, no text/eagle on dial, no crown guards or washi paper dial but same level of finishing. There is a black dial and blue fume versions as well.

I love the 4050 but I'm leaving towards Super Titanium for this one. There may also be CITES issues importing the strap and I'd hate to have it confiscated by customs. It's one I'll be looking for when I go to Malaysia and Singapore later this year.
