I really like the puffer fish on the case back. My kids would never let me keep it on my wrist

Dibs on the lume dial and agree the pufferfish is bomb. It’s really cool how the watches light up on the website when you touch them (easily amused here)

Love the whole design, and how many versions they are making. All of the different
combinations are great, and yeah, how about that case-back?! :excited: So neat !!!

Thanks a lot for the heads up, and news about them !

Cool beater. Does anyone have a potential source for these beyond the Singapore/Malaysia/Brunei-only ADs listed on Citizen's site?

I’d love one of these.

There is a couple listing on Ebay, and over at WUS, but all the stores I've found have been sold out.

I like everything about them, EXCEPT that left handed crown. Just can't do those.

Lume dial is cool.
I don't like that it is a LE of 1000 though, as it would be great as a lower cost beater rather than a premium priced novelty.
These are $500 if you can find them :tap:

Actually there is no XXX/XXX marking for the "regular" versions of these limited series... they just put "Asia" under that fish.
I think there are 2 more special editions that do have those markings, but the colours are rather confusing... IIRC one was some rosegold-ish case with green bezel

i think there is one guy on WUS offering his service @ 450.

After spending more time with this piece:
1. day/date window sucks.. fonts are too small/thin and with black background, it's almost not there
2. bezel clicks are precise, but a bit on the loose side
3. full lume is cool, but the hands are simply invisible say 5-6am
4. the rotor is loud and has a vibrating effect when spinning! how cool is that!
5. ticking sound is actually pretty minimum

Another sales lady actually called me last night on another 12X, but I am not sure if I will visit there before it's gone. :cheers:

Incoming NY0080-12E. Also will consider trade for 12X if you wish to try a Comsubin Model. ;)
