Citizen Trans Continents 6350 Lunar Module

Today's watch is my second Lunar Module watch from the Citizen Trans Continents range, and looks like it might be a sequel.

This model is based around the Citizen 6350 module, and has some differences from the 6300 Lunar module I'd blogged about a while ago. Time is shown using a 3 hand dial design, and there are two dials at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions for day (left) and month (right). Instead of the date being in another small dial, it is shown with an extra hand on the main dial, with the date around the edge of the dial.

The moon phase display takes up the bottom section of the dial and has a rotating moon design which does 1 complete revolution every 56 days (and so covers 2 moon cycles). Compared to the other model, this dial moon phase dial has windows at the top and bottom, so you can see a faint outline of the moon picture which is 'hiding' while the earlier model just has a single window.

The Citizen Trans Continents range is a collaboration between Citizen and the fashion brand Trans Continents. The designs tend to have a retro sci-fi style and often look like they should be in a 1960s sci-fi movie.

This model has a model number of 6350-S018111. Assuming I was right about the 6300 being from 2003, and this being a later model, then this watch was made in 2007.
