Default Grabbing the bullhead by the horns.

A very welcome release from Citizen, I owned a Citizen a while ago with a 2100 movement in, it is a great hybrid.

Some details below I found it quite interesting.

Love these Desk, and how they pay tribute to their past bullhead models,
but still are able to move beyond them, and be their own watches !
Just the finishing is flawless, and the whole design seems so far ahead
of time. ..Then the new touches with the sub-dials really kick things
into overdrive ! So cool Desk !!!

Thanks a lot for the link, along with news !!

Thanks for posting.

I would love to find out more information (where to purchase) about the orange-dial version. Have been on the hunt for some time now without any success.

I've had my eye on these, awaiting their release. $1200 Canadian + 13% tax.

Ouch!! Gonna have to think on this awhile longer.

Don't know how you feel about eBay Roarry (actually I think I do ), but I've been seeing them at much lower prices from some "decent sellers".

^^^ I was going by Citizen Canada website mrsp. I can do a bit better from my local guy (AD). I will have a look elsewhere.
Actually, my cousin is the national sales director for Citizen Canada. I have knocked on his door, at his insistance many times before, but don't want to wear out my welcome!

I've had my eye on the Tsuno since I saw them announced! Very sharp.

That's a nice release from Citizen who haven't done a bullhead chrono in a while. Vibrant colours and typical Citizen chrono detail.


Thanks Gary

Looks great except for that date placement. Makes you think they should have rotated it lower until you realize they just took the original movement and rotated to bullhead orientation.
