Check these links:

1. http://www.citizen.com.hk/watch-line...product_id=869

Click on the link given under "Instruction Manual Download"

2 .Instruction Manuals for Citizen Watches

Search and click on "510".

FYI: 0510 is the caliber number of your watch.

But still not able to reset it. The manual says press of button B should reset hour & min hand of chrono to Zero, but that is not happening. Looks like there could be some problem with the watch.

Another thing I noticed is that Caliber of my watch is 051C, and that doesnt seems to be available in the Manual. But I guess it should all the be same.

One more Tissot to the ramp fellows. This one is a Michael Owen Limited Edition that I got myself for my wedding. And I managed to get it at a killer price at that. I recently bought myself a Tommy Hilfiger which is rather cute in my opinion. Here it is.

Cheers

Ok, I figured it out, there is nothing wrong with the watch, thats how these semi circular chronos are desinged, there are 2 needles, both in diff colours.

I kept the chrono running for over an hour and I could see the other needle, otherwise hidden come out and point at the right number.

Excellent. Looks like lot of our members are gifted or gifting themselves lovely watches this season.

However, a humble request. Please post the price and where you brought from when you post the details. It would help others to include or exclude them from their "want" list

Hi Fellas, as requested by mobike008, I am posting the price of my watches. I bought the Tissot PRS200 Michael Owen Limited Edition at a discounted price of Dhs.1500 which on the purchased date would carry a value of Rs.18,750. The actual rate was Dhs.2400. A total of 4999 pieces were manufactured out of which mine is the 2731st piece. I got the watch from Rivoli Store out here in Dubai.

The Tommy Hilfiger was bought 3 months back for Dhs.490, which is Rs.6125 at the Hour Choice outlet here in Dubai. The actual price read Dhs.650. I didn't get a big discount, but I liked this watch. Incidentally, this watch was on display boards back in Chennai when I visited in November last year and is well appreciated.

I also have a Christian Bernard which was gifted by Dada. I am not sure if this brand is famous back in India (it isn't quite famous out here in the first place) but this is a fashion brand centered around jewellery making. Its quite rich to look at and does cost quite a bit as well. Its got a Mother of Pearl dial and is gold plated, albeit I am not sure about the carat. Here is the watch. The stones that cover it are Zircons. Dada got this for Dhs.3300 (which reads Rs.41,250) at the Rivoli Boutique here in Dubai.

Cheers

I bought this for 10.7K. Lifestyle was running a sale and got myself a 10% discount on the MRP which came to the above mentioned price. But like I said before it feels a little delicate compared to my other watches (RW, Tissot and Festina)

Latheesh
The watch might be a lil thick for someone's liking but i was sold for it long long ago. I read a lot about the fake Chinese PRCs selling that at one point I was wondering if PRC stood for People's republic of China.

I always read a lot on the reviews (you get loads of them on Amazon) and especially one which are low rated.

Members would be surprised to know that many companies do not honor warranty on watches sold over internet. And lot of PRC200 reviews on amazon suggested that it wasnt the best place to buy it.

Looks really good and the chain is similar to the PRC one. Good choice Champ!!

Until and unless you get a steep discount abroad, I have seen lower prices in India. In fact most of the high end watches are available in Delhi with 20-25% discount on the MRP. When I got my Rolex GMT-II the MRP was 2.25L but I got it for 1.75L, similarly for my Tissot PR100, mechanical I got a 22% discount. The added advantage of buying here is that you get full warranty for repairs in India.

Just got one more watch organizer box which can hold upto 25 watches, this time I got another Rs.250 discount. I could now manage many more watches into my shelf. The new watch organizer was equipped with a thick leather between the top and bottom portions to avoid any scratches from the watches placed on the box cover part. After seeing that I had cut a soft leather from my camera bag to the yesterday's watch box and kept similar leather cloth to cover the watches.

Here are the pictures of my both watch organiser boxes kept next to each other, ofcourse with my watch collection already taking place in the box.
