1970s Vintage Citizen Alarm Date 3102 "Fashion"

Citizen Alarm Date 3102 "Fashion"
Circa 1970s

For those who saw my Seikomatic Weekdater post and wanted in on something unapologetically handsome, here's an offer that you might not want to miss out on.

A polished black dial, with patina hour markers and nice shiny dauphine hands and a short arrow alarm hand. And this one doesn't come with the boring lugs of the Seiko either.

Alarm watches are a very nice novelty to own and operate. For those who own Seiko Bell-Matics, you'll be glad to know that the Citizen mechanical alarm movement sounds a whole lot louder, comparable to the legendary Vulcains. 

Unlike vintage Vulcains however, the Citizen Alarm Date is more suited to today's watch sizes, and wouldn't look out of place on a modern wrist. 

Two large crowns wind the barrels that power the movement and the 20 second alarm manually, and with something that large it's really easy to wind up on the go without having to take your watch off the wrist (not really recommended, but worth noting nonetheless).

Add in the cyclops date glass, and you've got yourself something serious enough to be fun at the same time.
