Promaster Tough is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solar Alternative to The Victorinox Inox Unlike the Inox I own, the Citizen case is extremely scratch resistant and the second hand hits the markers with precision. The Ballistic Cordura strap feels much more durable than the Victorinox rubber strap. The Promaster wears better because of it's thin profile. Sometimes the Inox won't fit under a shirt cuff. The biggest and best difference is Citizen's Eco-Drive technology. I highly recommend the Promaster Tough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and finishing of big Swiss names I collect big watch brands with mechanical or manual movement and I was curious about this black mat finish. I wear this watch every day with my others watches. The watch is very confortable due to its mono block case: - Tri dimension dial adds a lot to depth - Numbers and wording add ( not too plain, not too busy) - Screw crown is easy to handle when adjusting the date/ hour - Shape of case/ faceted lugs / bezel / DLC (?) coating / shape of hands and indexes make this watch unique. - the proportions are great with a 22mm lugs. However again as mentioned in previous reviews, the strap is definitely too stiff but lugs size made it easier to source! The spring bars are very thick and slightly scratched the lugs when mounting outsourced rubber strap. The dial is amazingly finished ( index glows like a torch with blue and green super luminova ) . PS: About the date, I seen may complain about the small size but to me, it’s a cool watch/ tough and a larger would have unbalanced the dial so its a plus for me... And we can still read the date without any issue. - It’s a keeper! Unique and timeless!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and clean lines I like this watch from the moment I saw it. U tried it on and the band was rigid but I thought it would break-in and wear nicely. Then I tried on the metal band Promaster Tough and it was perfect. So I purchased both, I have yet to take the ballistic Cordura strap watch off. It has nestled onto my wrist and I get baby compliments too. At some point I will utilize the stainless Promaster Tough but it has spent its 3 weeks with me in its box.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great but the strap is a deal breaker I love how this watch looks, it is my favorite Citizen that I have seen in a while. I liked it so much that I bought it. After taking it home and wearing it for a bit I realized the strap is terribly uncomfortable. The rubber is extremely thick on the strap which causes a few problems: it is stiff and doesn’t conform to my wrist, and the strap retainers and are irritating. Also the clasp is sharp and digs into my wrist when I wiggle the watch. I LOVE how this watch looks but the ergonomics of the strap are so bad that I will be returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite watch to date This watch was a gift from my wife and is true to form. It took a few days to break in the band but since that, I have rarely taken it off. The quality is amazing and its simple and clean features really appeal to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great watch at a great price. I was really pleased with the whole process of ordering my Promaster tough.The item came in a few days and I am impressed with the quality of the watch. It feels and looks solid. If this watch performs like my other Citizen ECO drives, I should have it for several years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good and Bad Watch was nice. Band was too rigid and the date was difficult to read. Returned it in one day. Customer service was fantastic.

I would like to fit a rubber strap. What is the watch lug width for this model.  

Asked by: IBE65
At the advice of "IBE65" above, I replaced the stiff OEM strap with the Marathon WW005015 and couldn't be happier. It's the perfect strap for this watch!! Thanks for the tip!!

Will this model ever have a bezel like a divers watch? 

Asked by: Joeo
It is possible that, in the future, the Pro Master could have a bezel. A raised bezel helps to protect the watch crystal, which would definitely add functionality to this watch considering it is meant to be a rugged, durable watch. While I do not know of any plans to add a bezel to the Pro Master design, I would not be surprised to see one added. However, there is no way to know for sure until Citizen reveals its next Pro Master in the series.

Is the black color on the watch case anodized steel or "super titanium"? I lightly bumped the case on a metal (and round) staircase railing and some of the color rubbed off.

Asked by: ssmsu
Update: I was wrong. This watch is durable as heck. The color was the metal I had chipped off the railing, not my watch, which eventually fell away after a couple of days.

Is the Promaster Touch, Super LumiNova hands and markers green and blue? (Minute hand in Blue, markers in Green) The illustration I have seen shows that the Super LumiNova hands and markers are not your original white color in the dark.

Asked by: hack2er
You are correct green and blue minute hand
