Citizen 8920

July 3, 2020

What you see here is possibly my favourite ana digi watch. Citizen 8920 module which is hard to find as they are only numbered on the module and not the caseback.  This is also the longest project I have had taking 5 months! 

I bought the watch as a non runner for £2.20 on eBay which was a steel I thought given the condition, I figured it would be a easy fix however on receipt of the watch I found that not to be the case.  Extensive battery acid damage had done its worst and ruined the module.   In all it took 3 donors to finally get it to work. 2 donors the coils were bad, the final donor was a complete working module!  finding the donors it what took forever. Saved eBay searches eventually came to my rescue.  

Beautiful dial and shape, so unusual and that is why I like it so much.  I had to relume the dots on the dial to complete the look.  Well worth the wait.
