Bimmerman, that is just a beautiful watch. Do you have any idea the model number or reference.

Hey there Vinodh, its a Citizen 8110 from the 1970s, nicknamed the "Bullhead" because of the crown and pusher arrangement resembling the horns on a bull's head.

Not only is it a looker but it also features a Flyback chronograph which is seldom seen even on expensive watches these days. With a Flyback you don't need to stop the chronograph in order to reset it. Just press reset while the chronograph seconds hand is running.

Locally it's also called the Mickey Mouse and again for obvious reasons. Its quite petite by today's standards at 38mm but back in the day I thought it looked massive on my grandfather's 7 inch wrist.

Latest movie appearance is when Brad Pitt wore his on a bund strap in "Once upon a time in Hollywood".

Thank you for all the details. I think the 38mm case size is perfect. (The bund strap is something I will work hard to forget, lol).

You, sir, have impeccable taste.

I bought it at Panerai boutique in Saudi Arabia for 33000 Riyal. It's about 8800 USD.  I got a nice discount

Nice simple vintage face. Looks like a 42mm or more?

38mm actually but wears larger than its measurements suggest. But then my wrists are also puny.  ;D

The Timex Midget pays homage to a WWI trench watch made by the Ingersoll Watch Co. called the Ingersoll Midget which was basically a pocket watch with wire lugs welded on to accomodate a strap for the wrist.  In 1922 the Ingersoll Watch Co. was acquired by the Waterbury Clock Co. which became Timex as we know today.

Wonderful history indeed! The reproduction is quite accurate too. Another great American watch company has to be Hamilton!
Regarding wrist sizes, mine is barely 6 inches and so I prefer 38-42mm case sizes. Also prefer not too thick cases and NATO straps :)
