We cannot tell you from the serial number what the model watch you bought is . But you can call Citizen watch 800 321 1023 extension 4234 and give them the serial and they will be able to tell you the model and year the watch was produced.

I have a citizen elegance water resistant watch with serial number 891188. I need 2 links added onto it for it to fit me.


My watch is an Elegance that is thirty years old with sentimental value. I don't know how old your watch is or how much you want to put into it. I would contact Citizen to see if they could fix you up with something if you haven't done so already. They should have these watches cataloged. You may have to send it back to them.

I have a Bulova Watch that was given to a Clark Candy employee with a Serial Number of 523791. Looking for what year it was made and is it worth anything


The value of your watch depends greatly on the model / style, age, and case composition. It goes without saying, but watches (of any mechanical quality) that have real gold cases right now are worth quite a bit more than watches with gold plated, gold filled, gold-tone, or stainless steel cases. Presentation watches like those given to employees upon retirement were often gold or gold-filled--but there's a world of difference in value between those two types of watches.

In terms of age, it's much easier to date vintage Bulova watches by their "year code" than by their serial number. If you look carefully, usually above or below the serial number, you'll see a little alphanumeric code, like L5, N3, or P6. These can be translated as follows:


Lx = 195x Mx = 196x Nx = 197x Px = 198x Tx = 199x


Pre-1947 Bulova watches used little symbols to show the year of manufacture. A picture of those codes can be found here, as well as elsewhere on the Internet:

I bought a CITIZEN watch from Dubai, UAE. The model number is EZ 6918-56. It has a steel finish bracelet and white dial. As there are many 'CITIZEN -FAKES' in the market, i just want to clear my...


Most counterfeit watches are designed to fool the casual observer, and as a result, the manufacturers focus on making the outside of the watch look as much like the original as possible. However, to save money, the inside of the watch (i.e., the movement) is usually quite different from what's in the original watch.

One relatively reliable way to check whether your watch is genuine is to remove the back and see what's inside. Is the inside of the case back stamped "Citizen"? Is there a Citizen brand on the movement (note: not all Citizen movements may be branded with a Citizen logo). For greatest reliability, I would take your watch to a jeweler who sells Citizen watches and pay them a few dollars to pop open the back and examine the movement. They will be able to recognize whether you have a genuine Citizen movement in the watch, and the peace of mind you receive may be well worth the $5 or so I expect they'd charge you for this service.

In addition to the movement, counterfeit watches with steel bracelets often have cheaper quality links than the watch they are copying. However, this is not always the case; as it's become cheaper to manufacture good quality watch bracelets, some counterfeits have watch bands that are just about as good as the real thing, and it takes an expert to find the differences.

One other note.


The COSC number generally refers to the movement number not the case number.


Inspect the hang tags that came with the watch.. the movement number may be referred to on one of them... or to the COSC certificate.


Otherwise the only way the movement number can be viewed is to remove the back.


Watches have several numbers.. reference and serial.

A - Stainless Steel

13 - Caliber

3 - Certified

40 - Model (Super Ocean)


The case will have a number the movement and the bracelet.. the crystal etc etc.


When you have the watch serviced.. have them write the movement number down for you.. for comparison.


Good luck!

I dont exactly understand what your problem is with your watch, but if you just do a GOOGLE image search using RICOH WATCH in the search., it will pull up a ton of images and you can find your watch that way.

I bought this watch citizen BL5334-04E year ago,


Mechanically operated date changes occur at 12 O'clock. If your watch thinks it is midnight when it is noon then it will change date.

The solution is to wind your watch on 12 hours.

Where can I get a stainless steel replacement watch band that will fit a Citizen Diver Ny0040-17L ? Citizen only make a rubber strap for this watch and don't offer a metal alternative or replacement....


You are right in that a stainless steel alternative is not typically thought of for this style of watch. The trick here will be finding someone who will customize head pieces that will fit the watch. There are a lot of talented craftsmen out there that can do this depending on where you are. I would start with the repair center for Precision Time. You can go to there website at PrecisionTimeCo.Com. Other than that I would call around to the local repair shops. You can also contact watch retailers to see if they have someone they recommend.
