"Independent" is a JDM subsidiary owned by Citizen. The reference number of my watch is the BA7-018-51. This watch was released sometime in 2018 and has sold out some time after.
The crown and push buttons for chronograph have the unusual placement at 11-12-1 o'clock. This design makes it resemble a stopwatch.
The watch attempts to look pretty minimalist for being a chronograph. The dial and case are symmetrical to a good extent, too. The crown is cubic in shape.
The dial and chapter ring maintain a theme of white color contrasting against black, so the watch is very legible. Note that the watch does not have any lume on the dial or hands.Case: The bezel diameter is 38mm. The case size from 3-9 o'clock is 42mm. The smaller bezel and dial make it wear slightly smaller than 22mm. The lug width is 20mm, and the bracelet is removable.
Although the bracelet clasp has no microadjustments, the watch came with one link that is half the size of the others. This allows for half-size adjustments. The links and endlinks are all solidDial:
The dial is black in color. Under most light conditions the dial is glossy. But the sunburst effect is clearly visible in some occasions.
The right subdial is for the watch's second hand.
Chronograph: The center second hand is for the chronograph. The left subdial is for the minute markers. The Bottom-Center subdial is the hour marker for the chronograph. Basically, the chronograph is basically a 12-hour stopwatch. The left pusher starts and stops the chronograph, whereas the right one resets it to the 0 position.Watch condition: The watch is in a good condition. Mostly light scratches on the mineral crystal. There is a chip in the crystal at 6 o'clock position. I have removed the crystal and verified that the chip does not continue all the way to the other side, so the water resistance is still maintained.
The case and bezel have marks from wear and tear, but the most significant is at the 7 o'clock position on the bezel. Price: I am asking for 70$ for the watch shipped worldwide. Offers accepted, just send me a PM.
