Citizen Cosmotron

Guys, I need your help.

I recently acquired this Citizen Cosmotron, the last model of the movement before the quartz movements really took over.

Anyways, I have the bracelet for it, but I’m missing the endlinks for it. Does anyone on here happen to know where I could look for something similar?

The case where it meets the endlink is slightly curved, so any regular bracelet won’t fit.

I am also in need of a crystal, but I think I’ll be able to sort that out…

I hope someone know more about these than I do! As of now, I’ll have to use this one:

Cheers!

Holy smokes what a dial. I certainly hope I’ll be able to piece it together; lovely piece you’ve got!😍

I hope you are able to find the parts!

Unless the dial is cracked I would sand it down with 3000 grit sandpaper until it's frosty and then finish polish it with Polywatch. You will be amazed!

I would just put it on a strap until you find another bracelet. Is it 18mm or 19mm?

My watchmaker just sent me this X8 Cosmotron but I ended up putting it on a Vario bund strap

Sanding down would be ok, but polish a mineral crystal with an acrylic polish wouldn’t do much.. The bracelet I have on in the last picture is the only one I have that I feel fits. Any leather or nato feels weird, OEM bracelet is always better IMO- there’s a reason they get released that way

That bund strap really fit yours though! Do you have any ideas as to what type / colour strap could fit my rather radical dial colour?

ah didn't realize it was mineral, The case citizen used on a lot of these is very similar if not the same across several models. So you should be able to find a bracelet. Also they tended to glue in the crystals on a lot of these so be prepared for that. I'm waiting on a domed sapphire crystal for this one. the crystal is fine but the dial deserves better

That last picture could be my wallpaper😅 That’s really motivating! Do you happen to know the name / style of this case?

The crystal could be polished, but I imagine it being tideous and not as cheap as getting a new one, if I can find it.
