Citizen J-League C180 - Tokyo Verdy

Today's watch is one with a brittle strap which was a promotional item for the Japanese J-League.

Judging by the watches I've seen, Citizen watches have produced many watches for the Japanese football (soccer) league.  This model is one that is designed for one of the J-League teams, and I guess would be part of a range from the 2000s.

This model is for the team Tokyo Verdy. The team was founded in 1969 and was at its peak in the early 90s when it was the J-League champions. The watch comes in the teams colours, and the face has a picture of the team mascot Verdy Kun.

The watch itself is an ana-digi model with a C180 movement. It has a 3 hand dial, with a curved LCD running around the bottom of the dial. The dial is an electronic model which is set by the buttons rather than a crown. The digital part is where the modes lie. The modes are alarm, chronograph, and timer (but I can't confirm that as it is currently not working), and I'd guess it has dual time too.
