Watch Rotation

on Wed Mar 15 2017, 14:46
I have found that recently I have been wearing the same watch for quite a while and some of my others are feeling slightly neglected . As a remedy to this I have decided to wear everyone of my watches for one day only

Starting today with my Citizen C480-S46934



I will add a little review each day with the pro and cons of each watch this will help me in the future should I decide to part with any .

Extremely light on the wrist and in my opinion rather different as it has both Analogue and Digital time on it

An excellent watch to wear for a formal occasion as I am sure a shirt sleeve will fit over it very easily ... Luckily though I do not wear shirts very often

Con's

The digital time is a little bit difficult to read

It's a good idea to wear them in rotation John. You can lose sight of how much you enjoy wearing certain watches when other, more current favourites, hog all the wrist time. Very Happy

That said hopefully there won't be too many of them ending up on a "condemned" list. Shocked

Nice big easy to read dial measuring in at 41mm and 43mm with crown I do like the addition of colour to the blue stopwatch hand

Con's

This is just a personal issue I am not a lover of Roman Numerals I dont know why but I just do not like them .

my main niggle is with the strap it is just not long enough I have managed to secure the strap on the second hole but that does not leave enough strap to fully go into the keeper ... yes this is a trivial issue that can be fixed with a new strap

i get your niggles, i think roman numerals should be on clocks and its amazing the amount of watches than come with short to medium length straps, all thats needed is an extra 15mm and they would fit most people IMO

I like the Roman numerals though they are quite big in proportion to the hands. I think it's quite smart though so could easily be a dress or casual watch which is great.

Its interesting what you say about the strap size. Knew a chap years back that only wore Seiko divers with rubber straps. Having rather thin wrists he hated seeing the end of the strap almost coming round to the top of the watch.

Solution, he chopped a section off with a pair of scissors. Shocked I have one of his watches and the flat rough end of the strap always reminds me of him. Very Happy

Sounds like the perfect solution to his troubles its a shame I can not just add that little bit more to this strap . Think this may just be one of them watches to be added to the " to go " list

I think that Daff62 will enjoy tomorrows watch as he enjoys the older selection

Today I am wearing a Hour Jump watch I believe I am correct in calling it that . Sperjna pronounced Sperina it is a lovely little watch I was lucky to be gifted this watch from another forum. Unfortunately quite a few cons rather than pros with this watch but I will write about them later

......and you are quite right John, that's a lovely watch.

They are called jump hour or can also be called digital watches. The concept wasn't new as there were jump hour wrist watches from roughly the 1920s onwards. The same design was also used in pocket watches and travel clocks.

Your one is quite nice with the small sub second hand instead of another revolving disc & window showing the seconds.

These watches can be temperamental, specially the older ones, so if this one is working well I think it's a nice watch to have in your collection. Will look forward to seeing your pros and cons for the watch later. Very Happy

Pro's

I really like the appearance of this watch as it is very unusual . very light on the wrist in fact a couple of times I did check to make sure it was still there and not fallen off . I agree with Daff62 that the sub second hand is a great looking feature .
I think that the strap I put on it really suits the watch but would also look good on a leather dress strap

Con's

Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick is all I can hear it is so loud Shocked
A rather annoying part is actually reading the time I guess it is not the watches fault but my own fault as this is proof that my eyes are deteriorating .
As you can see on this closer photo the dial has a slight discolouration is this a bad thing or does it add character to the watch.
I can not find out how to change the date the crown only seems to have the one pull out setting still not to worry as I can hardly read it anyway lol



In my original post I stated that there could be more con's than pro's but in actual fact I stand corrected on this as after wearing it for a full day I really like it .

That's great John & the watch has been saved from the "to go" list. cheers

With regards to the dial there has possibly been damp ingress at some point causing it to discolour & it could deteriorate further. It could be restored but you would have to be very keen on the watch to go to that trouble and expense. To my eye I could happily live with it as is.

It would be nice to replace the glass but given the shape I don't know whether that would be easy to do or not.

The date might have to be set by just advancing the time continuously. With some watches, when the date advances, you can then set the time back to nine o'clock then take it forward again & repeat the process till the correct date is reached.

The strap suits it well but a bracelet may give it a bit more substance on the wrist.

Hopefully it will get a bit more wrist time now and avoid any to go lists. Very Happy

A nice easy to read / wind watch and I also like the red sweep second hand. I imagine the lume will be quite strong too. Very Happy

i have to admit....i have 5 of them [ or 6 Smile ] and they are very well made, the movements are a Citizen design and bomb proof, i always assumed [ wrongly ] that they would have chrome plated cases, but they are stainless steel..........i suppose chrome over brass wouldn't do well in a hot sweaty climate. one things for sure there are certainly a lot of them about and most are now probably sporting re-painted dials and there is also a huge range of dial colours Very Happy
these are mine, i am 99% sure the dials are original as the finish is so good


sadly i dont wear them as i find them a bit small, but i do like them Wink
