    Congratulations Jose, I'm glad you finally got one, it looks to be a fine example. I do believe these movements represent the zenith of Citizen's mechanical watchmaking. My 8050 remains one of my most accurate watches, it doesn't have the external regulating feature but so far luckily I haven't needed it. Looking forward to some more photos and opinions once it arrives.
    Thanks Tim.

    Something different, made in December 1976.

    Fascinating. I can imagine that regulating the watch via the crown could be addicting, or dangerous.
    Has anyone tried it?
    I recall some sort of Bulova from the past decade which allowed adjustment of regulation...I cannot recall how it was effected.

    Did anybody see it, it sold for $800.00.
    In this movement you can regulate the timing by the crown.
    Beautiful watch from 1974.
    Tim I recall your thread with the caliber 8050.

    Here is a blog on it, very interesting.
