How do you make seven hands less noticeable on a dial? Put a 30mm copper antenna in the middle of the dial. [Here’s a video of the watch in action.]( https://www.instagram.com/p/C166OppKwBv/) **Model**: 7400-c70007, Citizen Radio Control **Year**: 1993 **Features**: * *7400 movement*. The world’s first radio-controlled analogue watch, sporting a 12/24 hour sub-dial, a preset/pseudo-GMT selector, and a pusher based day and month indicator. It may not be to everyone’s taste, but you can’t pretend it isn’t incredibly interesting to look at! * *Location Selection*. The sub-dial in the bottom left allows you to choose between central Europe, the UK, and Japanese time at the click of a pusher. L-1 and L-2 are two programmable times that can be set by the user, giving the watch pseudo “GMT” functionality. The main dial on the right-hand side of the watch is typically controlled by radio signals, but it can be overridden to display anytime you desire. * *Radio Waves*. I replaced the battery a couple of weeks ago and have since tested all of the functionality. Everything works as intended, and I have been able to receive radio signal (in the UK). According to the manual it is capable of receiving a signal from up to 800km away, but thanks to modern technology you can use your phone to spoof radio signals if you don’t live close enough to a radio transmitter. I’ve not tried it myself, but according to the various videos on YouTube it definitely works! You can also manually set the time yourself without needing to use any form of radio signal. * *Unique Design*. When Citizen were working on building the first ever radio-controlled analogue watch, they had a serious problem to overcome that their digital competitors didn’t have; an abundance of metal parts that kept blocking the radio signal. The solution? Put the antenna front and centre, above all of the other metal parts. It might look like it’s above the crystal but it’s actually inside it, giving it a real unique shape. * *Two Tone Bracelet*. The original bracelet, able to accommodate an 8-inch (20cm) wrist. **Condition**: The crystal, dial, bezel, general front of the watch are in great condition. The case back is the only element with obvious signs of wear. **Scope**: It comes with the original manual booklet, but I don’t have the original box so I will ship it in a Provenance Watches leather case. **Movement**: 7400 quartz, with a new battery **Case Width**: 41mm **Lug to lug:** 44mm **Case Thickness**: 13.2mm **Bracelet width:** 20mm **Bracelet length:** 200mm (fits wrist up to 8”) **Price**: Offered at a negotiable **$1400** plus shipping (sent from London, UK; costs $5-$55 depending on where you are in the world). I accept Wise, Paypal and Bank Transfer, depending on your transaction history. **Of note**: If anyone is interested in a great read about this watch, Fratello has you covered: https://www.fratellowatches.com/timetravel-3-radio-controlled-citizen-7400-multizone/ [Album](https://imgur.com/a/4Bdxixl) [Proof](https://imgur.com/a/ocneHFG)
