Promaster Tough is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tripple Threat I was so happy with the green Promaster Tough, that I purchased the other two variations in order to mix and match. Warning: The stainless steel bracelet uses a different spring bar than the ballistic fabric strap. You can purchase both the stainless bracelet and specific spring bars directly from Citizen, if you want to dress up the versions with the fabric strap. The middle part of the spring bar is about 1mm shorter, in order to install the stainless bracelet with the shoulders, onto the lugs. I'm really happy with the design aesthetic and the finish quality and toughness of these watches. The sapphire crystal on my older Citizen has been scratch free for almost a decade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough! Bought another citizen watch a few weeks earlier but it didn’t have the sapphire cover and it/the chrome scratches really easily. This was a great price at Macy’s so I bought it and love it. I have a 7” wrist and I wear it on the 4th to last band hole which fits perfectly and there’s room to move when temps get warm and skin expands. Lume is very bright for several minutes and and just a second in the sun lights the lume up during the day and you can see the markers pop with color. I wanted something that looked clean and didn’t have a cluttered face. Great finish, easy to work the crown and hope to have this for years!

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 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 4 out of 5 by from Three out of Four is not Bad I have an old Blue Angle eco drive and love it. I wanted something 1) really tough 2) eco drive 3) not too big 4) visible in the dark. The reviews were correct forget seeing the dial at night. My guess is that there are patents for the self illumination that the swiss company has. But at least my battery won't die at the wrong time and it is not stupid big. Considering what my Blue Angle has been through over the past 12 years I am sure it will hold up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daily wear, nightlife ready Bought this in February and after getting used to the fact it was not a leather or rubber style band, i am in love with this watch. I wear all the time including pools, golf, showers, weddings, work- it wears great and does not lose shape or scratch. Possibly one of the best things i have ever purchased.

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.

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
