Hello ARM,
HMT Sona (even if its white dial hand wound) can't be 50 years old,
for sure HMT Sona white dial was launched at 1972 only,.so it can be maximum 38 years old this is for your kind information

@powertwin: The HMT Roman and Citizen Automatic aren't skeleton watches. They just have clear case-backs.

The Titan Tandem that bhpian karankapoor owns is a skeleton.

BTW, I just love that Citizen automatic. Is it still available or sourceable? And do you know if there are any other current Seikos or Citizens with jubilee bracelets available?

Awesome shot!. What's the dial size? looks like 42-45 range

My 2 year old Citizen Eco-Drive started giving some problem. Most likely power storage issue.

It stops if I dont wear it for a day, and indoor it does 2 seconds at a time instead of 1 but time is correct.

Under the sunlight it gets back to normal. The problem is I wear it only once a week to give other watches some wrist time.

Any suggestions?

Just keep it outside open and not in any dark covered place. EcoDrive needs just light and not only sunlight. Main storage battery is not getting charge properly perhaps.

My first EcoDrive is working perfect even after 11 years.

Powertwin these watches are not called skeleton they just have a transparent back cover, Watches in which you can see the whole machinery are called skeleton watches.

Try and keep your watch in a place where it gets some light and see if this helps.

Yes Ji, you are right...Sorry I couldn't get that word>"clear case-backs" yesterday while posting.

Will check the availability status of this type of Citizen automatics with my source!~!!
