Some New Retro Looking Citizen Chronographs

I saw some cool retro looking chronographs while browsing through the Citizen European web sites.  These models feature the solar charged B612 caliber with a 210 day power reserve, a 60 minute chronograph, 1/5 second center post hand, and a 24 hour indicator subdial.  Manual is here.

Sure Citizen has lots of multi function models, but sometimes it is nice to have just a simple no nonsense chronograph.  Besides I think many would find the retro look of these models attractive.





I could not get any clarification if these models will ever be available in the US.  As it is now, they kinda remind me of the Seiko Italian Chronographs that were popular with collectors in the late 1990's.  For more info on the Italian Chronographs, read here.  What made these Italian models interesting was not only their unique design, but was also the exclusive nature of a limited market release.
