Citizen Independent G300 with retrograde 24-hr dial

The retrograde watch movement is an interesting concept. Instead of using a continuous dial, the hand moves to the end of the scale, and jumps back to the start.

This watch has a normal 3-hand dial for the time, but also includes a second 24-hr indicator with the jump-back / retrograde action. There is also a date marker above the 12 position in the same font as the hour markers.

All of this is run from a G300 module, and the watch was made in 2008.

The full model number is G300-002783-02, and is part of the Citizen Independent range released in the late 2000s as a line of trendy fashion watches.
