The point I was making was that being discontinued would not make it worth less.
Firstly I hope your post gets decent heat, it’s a nice watch and a respectable price for this model. I am a bit of a Citizen collector and have 10 radio controlled models and 5 straight Eco Drives all of which I fortunately bought at good knock down prices. With respect though you can’t refer to this (or any discontinued model) as being more exclusive. The term implies rarity which in this case is only the lack of availability from the retail outlets, not the 1000’s that will have been sold to consumers worldwide in the preceding years before the production end. The same will apply to any one of my watches a couple of which were discontinued limited editions.
Just bought another citizen last week. Like this one, it was out of stock everywhere but then beaverbrooks had one showing in stock for 319. Citizen website and everywhere is showing 499, albeit out s stock. So i agree, bein discontinued kind of makes it even more exclusive. Heat added, good find OP. Love Citizens.
This watch is very high spec with many lower spec Citizens a lot more expensive, The fact that its discontinued just makes it more exclusive. The fact that it was cheaper in December has no relevance to todays prices .
Its relevant because when this became discontinued the average selling price was £160-£180 as all the shops dumped their stock meaning this watch is no longer worth £250 let alone £350. But then it could be argued that an item is worth what your willing to pay so if £250 is a deal to you so be it.
