"The caliber 0950 automatic movement (in the 870 and 830 series) is said to be highly magnetic-resistant (important these days) and is the slightly better-performing of the new calibers. It features a 4Hz operating frequency, as well as 50 hours of power reserve. Citizen claims -5/+10 second per day of accuracy, but usually, the watches (and this applies only to Japanese calibers) perform better than this advertised number, to be honest."
"The Citizen caliber 0951 (in the 831 series) is also new and shares the same roughly 4mm-thick architecture of the 0950. It differs in performance and operates at 4Hz with a 42-hour power reserve and claimed accuracy of -10/+20 seconds per day. This is meant to be a slightly more affordable movement and will likely be in watches priced several hundred dollars less than those with the caliber 0950 automatic movement."
Really do like a couple of these. Great to see Citizen utilising some new automatic movements, but damn at the prices.
Guess Citizen is taking their cues from Seiko. Can't blame them for trying to see if the market will bear it.
I will be waiting for grey market to see if they are reasonable.
