Here is one of those very classy Citizen Campanola watches that I would love to own. This is a model number AG6210-03E, sporting a curvy tonneau case, and a full perpetual calendar laid out in avant garde Campanola fashion. Like all excellent Citizen Campanola watches, this represents the best Japanese watch company Citizen has to offer in these hand decorated and handmade watches. I’ve discussed these watches at length, and you can read my many thoughts on them in these articles.
Aside from the meticulously polished case and attractive face, the features in this Campanola are useful. This version focuses on the calendar providing the month, year, date, and date of the week. Further, the calendar is perpetual, meaning it takes into consideration leap years and the different amount of days months have. Lastly, the watch has synchronized 24 hour hand built into the the seconds subdial. Citizen is able to lay out this information in a way with lovely intrigue.
I really love the hands on this watch. With triangular geometric precision they travel around the face’s rounded and squared shapes. Interaction with the roman numerals is good, and legibility is clear despite the intense level of information.
Right now on eBay, a fine example of the Citizen Campanola AG6210-03E is available offered with some nice extras. One thing this watch comes with is a metal bracelet that I’ve never seen offered with this style Campanola. I’d love to see how this looks on the watch. Further, the watch also comes with two other lizard skin straps that are one of the best compliments a Campanola can have, as well a black calf strap. So you’d get 3 straps and 1 metal bracelet. The auction opens at $699, which is an excellent deal for the number of items, the watch, and the condition. I know it will find a good owner.
