Citizen Vagary Shiny Brown 1A36 Watch

Last time I blogged a watch from the Citizen Vagary line, it was different than the normal metal watch with colourful dials. Today's watch is another which fits with that style.

The watch is an entirely plastic design, with a colour matched plastic case and strap, and even a plastic back panel (but that is held on with metal screws). The front screen is also a raised plastic design with a ribbed pattern around the edges. The back doesn't hold all of the information, which is unusual, only having the Vagary name and logo, statements that it is 5 bar water resistant and has a Japanese movement, and that it is made of plastic.

In order to find out the information about the watch, you have to read the extremely small print at the bottom of the dial. This writing reveals that the watch contains a 1A36 module, and has a full model number of 1A36-S086677. The watch is a 3 hand dial design with a simple face of only white hour and minute markers on the brown face (except for the Vagary name and logo at the 3 o'clock position).

I've not spotted this shiny brown version online so far, but have found this design in blue (also with a 1A36-S0866xx model number). I think it is a modern model, so I'm guessing early 2010s (as there is no serial number for identification), but it could be late 2000s too.
