Citizen 0153


Not very familiar in Europe is the Citizen caliber 0153, a small ladies' watch movement. It was probably made in the end of the sixties.

The “Parashock 3” shock protection system is remarkable and was only used in Citizen movements.

This movement was also available in a version with 21 jewels.
