Thanks for viewing my listing! I have been a net collector of vintage watches over the years and now I've reached to point where I would like others to enjoy my watches/accessories or finish off projects I don't have time for.
Description: Two Vintage Citizen AD51507081 Super Jet Auto Dater 39 Jewels for Parts/Repair. Condition: Pre-owned - Very Good Cosmetic Condition; Not Working - Will Required Service/Repair. 37mm wide excluding crown; 45mm lug-lug; 18mm lug width.Citizen launched it's unique in-house Jet ring rotor "03" movement in 1961, quite a departure from the traditional central mount oscillating rotor first seen in the Auto Phynox in 1958. The highest end of the Jet series was the Super Jet Auto Dater. This particular watches dates to September and December 1963 and includes a "03" family Cal. 1160 39 jewel movement that beats at 18000 bph and includes manual wind and 45h power reserve. There is no quickset date. Acrylic crystals are both in great shape with no major cracks and a few light scratches. Case is 100 micron gold plate and in very good shape with some non-visible staining just under the 14K gold filled caseback; the December 1963 caseback does show some damage and prior repair. The silver-golden dials is near pristine on the September 1963 but on the December 1963 there is some patina due to age; still very presentable for a vintage. Hands and hour markers are in great shape and the unsigned crown winds smoothly along with manual date change on both watches. Movements both show some aging but there's not rusting/significant water ingress; to the untrained eye these watches look salvagable but I can't make any guarantees as currently both watches do not run but all functions work and they appear to manually wind up. On the wrist shot, we can see that the watch wears big for a vintage and had a luxurious feel. These were some of the highest end watches from Citizen at the time with a near record 39 jewel count (a few less less than the later production Crystal Seven 43J). These are relatively rare Citizen vintage watches and have been sitting on my service queue so long that it's time to let them go - it's a worthwhile project for some of you out there - with two watches the odds of a successful restoration go up.
