Citizen 0201


The caliber 0201 was one of the standard movements of Citizen, which was used in many mens' watches. It’s traditional construction with the large gear plate with three jewels, its directly driven center second and -minute hands and the large Glucydur balance, which is secured by two inhouse Parashock protection systems are making this movement a true and reliable classic. Every details reminded of the traditional (swiss) watchmaking of the past decades.

On the dial side, there are no suprises, too. The winding system uses a well known and reliable yoke mechanism.

This movement was also licensed to the indian MNT (Hindustan Machine Tools Ltd.), which produced it as caliber HMT 020.
