diver:
Great thread.
I was a Seiko and Bulova Freek (still am to a lesser degree)
But now I'm a Citizen True Believer. I have 6 Citizens. From
the Eco Zilla to the Citizen Primo Chrono. And a 1410 Field
watch.

They've even acquired Bulova in 2009. Citizen CS is above
SUPERB (if that's possible)

EcoDrive. I luv yew.

Simply amazing Desk !!!

See this is just one of the countless things that makes this
hobby so awesome sir.

Never actually knew how Citizen got their name. So that right
there was terrific ! But then hearing about their long history,
and how they have really perfected watch making was really
phenomenal ! The way they mix tradition with cutting edge
technology is outstanding.

Wow, and how about the Meisters, and Super Meisters, and
how much experience they have?!

Thought it was so neat also learning a little more about their
Campagnola division too. We never see enough of those stunners
when you really think about it.

Loved this Desk ! Thanks very much for finding it !

Incredible shot of your super Citizens as well Bevo !

I've always thought Citizen is very much underrated. Citizen offers tremendous value IMHO.

Yeah, think you are right Bevo ! ..It's strange right?!

Because they make something for everyone from the affordable,
to the out of this world extraordinary, and each watch is always
the best it can be quality wise it seems.

Honestly, think maybe people take them for granted a little
who maybe aren't watch people, fans, or Freeks.

Bevo:
Ever view World of Watches short duration TV show?
One of their sales ploys was "watch BUNDLES" so if
you bought a bundle of watches. they'd be sold at a
discounted price point.
If your posted pic isn't a bundle I don't know what is.

Notta one would be thrown under the wheels of a RR
locomotive I used to operate.
Call me a traitor to Seiko or Bulova if you like. Im now
the new and improved Citizen Nutt.

Each one bought separately over the course a few years, used ones mostly from Ebay.
