Mention 36000bph Japanese vintage watch and you will get collectors directing you to a 5740 Lord Marvel, 45 King/Grand Seiko or the 61 Grand Seiko but only a handful think of what Citizen offers.
36000bph calibre were offered by Citizen under the Highness and Leopard line in numerous case shape and dial.
The example offered here features a sharp faceted case that might remind many of the Grammer of deign case of the chronometer 44GS or 45KS.
Apart from the case the watch dial also has a similar clean silver sunburst dial and a similar dauphine hands. The added texture around the signed crown is definitely a great touch to the otherwise simple design of the watch.
