Citizen 7-Star Parawater 21-jewel dive watch, October 1968, APSS 2812-Y

1,200.00

My lovely & neat JDM Citizen Seven Star Parawater. I love this thing but sadly just don’t wear it that often. But goodness it’s cool. This watch lived a quiet life in Japan from 1968 until I bought it.

I did a Yesterday’s Watch Review, Today! episode about this watch, here: https://youtu.be/re2TW9Ug7WE
