The new $7500 Citizen

Well, damn. Double the cost of the Citizen Chronomaster Washi dial LEs.

Bit of a Grand Seiko vibe?
Zaratsu and all. The Chronomaster Washi (paper dials) were a Japan LE and run close to $4K are all sold out. Have looked at several Chronomasters as they seem to be Citizen's answer to GS. Unfortunately the prices continue to skyrocket.

That is really nice. I love the rotor. But expensive. I find it interesting that Citizen hasn't set this line apart more clearly than just putting the eagle on the dial. At least you know GS and Seiko are two very distinct lines. Maybe being in the know of what The Citizen is does it.
