This vintage curiosity, the CITIZEN Autodater Seven, is loaded with unique features.

A slick black jet is painted over an elliptical day window; logo, emblem & specifics follow in column.

It tells the day in Japanese, date in Arabic & water resistance depth in Spanish/English.

Best of all, it runs on the innovative & beautifully designed shark's tooth jet rotor movement, where a ring-rotor is linked to a gear.

This allows little delay in motion transfer from the rotor to other parts of the movement.
