Citizen founded the Shokosha Watch Research Institute in 1918. The name originates from a pocket watch it produced in 1924. The Mayor of Tokyo, Mr. Shimpei Goto, named the watch "CITIZEN", in the hopes the watch would become a worldwide success.
Here we have a stainless steel Citizen Eagle 7 with its 36mm "Oyster-style" case tapered for a comfortable fit on your wrist. A fluted bezel, reminiscent of a Datejust, holds a flat mineral crystal. The dial has an outer minute track with lume pips. Steel applied baton indexes to mark the hours. At 3 o’clock, a framed day/date window. Slim pencil hands have lume infill—Applied “Citizen” at 12 o’clock and the “Eagle 7” at 6 o’clock. On the reverse a screw-down case back. Inside an Automatic Miyota Cal. 8200A, 21 Jewels, 21,600 beats per hour. The movement is a real workhorse and has a quick set date and can be hand-wound. Fitted on a 20mm Citizen Jubilee bracelet with a signed folding clasp.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original box or paperwork. The watch comes paired on its original Citizen bracelet with signed folding clasp, all links included. The watch is from Circa. 1981 and is in worn, vintage condition, but overall very good as you can see. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
The watch that started it all for me, my first ever automatic watch was a Citizen Eagle 7 and I still own it today! Such a great watch for the money and its gone before it even had a chance of making it to the website!
