Promaster Tsuno Chronograph Racer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most compelling watches to own! The Tsuno is a re-imagined 70's design with 21 century technology that makes it one of the most compelling watches to own. Putting it simply with the Citizen's Tsuno your getting a watch with solar panels that charges a capacitor that runs both a quartz and mechanical movement, that will keep a charge for 8 months, which is accurate within a few minutes a year, housed in a beautifully designed unique case with a domed sapphire crystal and a leather band that rivals a Coach handbag, that is not only functional but a joy to look at because of the quality of the materials, design and craftsmanship...making this an amazing watch to own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best One Yet I have been collecting Citizen Watches since 2000, in Aruba Little Europe. I have a few Limited Editions too. I have Radio and Satellite Wave models also. The Eco Drive has sold me as No Batteries or Motion to keep them running. This model with the with the Ivory face makes it really stands out. The crystal magnifies the face so it's so easy to read and with the stem and other buttons on top really make it comfortable to wear. The leather band with the clasp with buttons is so easy to adjust to the wearer's comfort. As you can see in the photo it is also the only light face one in my collection which makes it stand out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful watch with a great color combination So I was expecting the watch face to be the color off-white paper and the same texture, it ended up being more gold in color than what you see in photos, as well as being metallic. That. Being. Said. Jesus this is a gorgeous watch. The chronograph is insanely satisfying to use from a visual and tactile sense. It's definitely a thick watch but it isn't hard to wear. Glad I sprung for this classy color scheme especially due to it being limited edition. Great classy watch to contrast my daily PCAT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern Design nod to a Classic Look - Great Tech Fan of Citizen since buying my first 21 yrs ago. Another awesome timepiece in this LE Tsuno. CASE: Good heft to the SS case - you know you're wearing this watch. Bezel is polised but the next two tiers are brushed creating a nice contrast. The edges of the "faux" lugs are polished as well. Pushers have a satisfying click reminiscent of mechanical chronos and the primary crown (signed with the Promaster logo) & alarm crown are easy to pull into setting position with a fingernail. Crystal has a subtle dome adding to the nostalgic feel of the watch. DIAL: Although busy, the dial is very well executed. Hour indices are easy to see for both the time & chrono subdials. The hashes on the running seconds, chrono minutes and hour registers are crisp and easy to read the elapsed time. The chrono second hand has a beautiful sweeping motion and flies back to zero in a flash. The tip is thin and all hands touch the full-second/minute/hour hashes. The date window is deeply recessed casting a shadow on the date but still legible. The black tachymeter scale perfectly matches the subdial color. The main dial is a beautiful champagne color with horizontal cotes de Geneve lines while the minutes chapter ring has concentric grooves. There is green luminescent paint on the hours, minutes and alarm (tip) hands as well as the hour indices. My only criticism is that it's a little weak. OPERATION: Easy to set the alarm and turn on & off with push of the lower crow. Stop watch works flawlessly...did I mention the sweeping motion? The alarm is substantially louder than other Citizen watches I've owned with alarms. STRAP: Genuine brown leather is pretty stiff...this will take a good break in period but the contrast stitching is exquisite. No frayed thread. Push button double deployant clasp has circular perlage adding to luxurious appeal. I am very pleased with this watch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegance at its Best I am a very picky watch collector, which means I have only a few because at times it will take 7-8 years before I find a new one. That was the case with this watch. In 2011 I picked up a Grand Complication and nothing I have seen has made me want a watch until I found this watch. It is nothing short of beautiful. I love the contrast colors and the leather strap mechanics make it very easy to size accordingly. I have never questioned Citizens craftsmanship or quality and both are on display here. Its work buying if you find one of the 1973 that were made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Bullhead Chrono design! I'm coming up 4 months of ownership with my Champagne Dial Tsuno racer. What can i say the watch executes all functions with precision accuracy & crispness and still looks incredible. I swapped the strap out for the blue dial Tsuno bracelet, OMG its stunning(also own a Blue Dial Tsuno). This watch has the quality & precision of a watch costing much much more. One of my most satisfying watch purchases ever, no regrets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product; bad price The product is excellent. After ordering however, I realized how much more expensive Citizen's online shop is than most online shops, and even more than local retailers (I'm not even going to mention Amazon). I'm considering returning the item to Citizen and purchasing the same item elsewhere.

Beautiful watch, are you able to buy these watch bands separately? I like the exclusive (all black metal Racer) version of this, but would love to get the brown and/or black leather straps as well... Thanks in advance.

Asked by: Bobby L
Yes, bands can be purchased, however they cannot be interchanged from one model to the next. Our bands are not made to be interchangeable as the case holes are drilled differently.
