1978 Citizen Military Dive Watch (Ref. 52-0110)

Founded in 1918 in Japan, Citizen is one of the most integrated manufactures in the watch world. They make all of their watch components in-house and do not have any manufacturing facilities outside the brand's home country. With a history of cutting edge technology, Citizen is known for their incredibly accurate and rugged time pieces. The history of Citizen divers from the 1960s-1980s is rather elusive. However, what we do know is that the company was very well know for producing dependable divers in this time period as well as highly regarded pressure-rated quartz divers. 

This particular military dive watch is in excellent condition for its age, and is a rather striking example of just how strongly such sought-after, yet affordable Citizen military watches can hold up over time.
