CITIZEN DIGITAL WATCHES: 70s- 2000 History of Ana-digi temp, Calculators, Promaster , Independent

New video up on my channel -> 
https://youtu.be/6awwNqC7DJA

Citizen watches have an excellent history , but I would bet that you probably haven't looked into its digital watch catalog too much beyond perhaps the ana-digi temp.. This video provides an overview of the origins of Citizen Watch Co , its first forays into electronic watches and quartz, with the primary focus being on its digital watch offerings.

This overview moves through from the original crystron LC , to their first alarm and multi alarm models , the amazing Citizen crystron calcaultor watches, as well as their 80s sports watch and multi function models.  Of particular note is the P130 casio g-shock clone - very cool.  Into the 90s we cover the Promaster range , with a favourite being the hyper aqualand and the super fun Citizen independent series which had a whole array of bonkers watches.

Good video! I have been on the fence about adding a particular Citizen watch to my collection. It is the Citizen Star Wars Rebel Pilot JG2108-52W. I had been debating whether I wanted to add another quartz watch to my collection, as I am not a fan of changing batteries at all and detest both doing it and taking a watch to have the battery changed. I do have a few quartz watches in my collection besides budget Casio and Timex watches, but I am always hesitant about adding another, and there are other Citizen watches with digital displays and eco-drive technology. However, watching your video has made me rethink the Rebel Pilot and I might just edit my 2022 list yet again. 🤣
