Citizen Independent Automatic, Calibre 8227

Another posh watch day today, and yet another Citizen Independent.

This is another of the updated Citizen Independent line in the late 2000s. It is an automatic mechanical movement which is an 8227 calibre. The design of the watch is such that the face has a cut-away section showing the flywheel (like a partial skeleton), and the back is also open showing the mechanism. The watch is a 2-hand dial, with a separate second hand dial between the 4 and 5 o'clock positions. It also has a 24-hour dial at the 9 o'clock position. There is a mixture of dashes (odd hours) and roman numerals (even hours), but the 4-o'clock marker shows IIII instead of the normal IV.

The full model number is 8227-003070-02
