Citizen 40-4080

July 4, 2020

This is a lovely gold coloured Citizen 40-4080 digital watch. It was a great find too at the UK watch fair. Bought this for £10.00!  okay it was not working right but it has hardly any wear to it.  Usually with these vintage gold watches most of the colour is faded off especially on the clasp. This one though has fared very well over the years.  I’d guess at early 80s for its date.  They have an interesting module which when in stop watch the bar at the bottom flashes across the screen.  very interesting graphic for the time so I could imagine playing with this in wonder as a teenager back then.   To fix it just needed a very good clean in the ultrasonic in alcohol.  Took a few attempts but eventually I won the battle.
