Promaster Altichron is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it but not perfect I really love this watch but there should be small improvements. The outer bezel with cardinal directions (N,S,E,W) and degrees is too loose! It needs to click to stay in place. It moves too easily so when orienteering, it's likely to move after setting your bearing. The compass works really good but the altimeter is rarely correct, even after calibration it changes frequently. I understand that a change in temperature and weather can affect the sensor, but it doesn't seem extremely useful. The eco-drive system is fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gave Citizen a try & I’m happy What an interesting watch. My first citizen, I’ve only had it for a couple weeks and it continues to impress me. The altimeter function is accurate, the dance that it does when you activate it is always fun to watch. It is a barometric altimeter so it varies with changes in weather, this does help with understanding approaching high or low pressure weather events. The altimeter use very useful for my outdoor activities and I use it more than I thought I would. The compass is a nice addition & always has been accurate. The features, and quality of feel keeps me hopeful that this timepiece will be part of my everyday for years to come

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great watch! Just got it yesterday. Awesome watch, easy to use functions. Great looking! No doubt in my mind that it will be typical excellent Citizen quality. Only reason for the 4 stars versus 5, crown is not a screw down. Seems really strange for this watch. Additionally, the crown is absent any shoulders for protection. Also strange.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the watch, hated the band ! First and foremost: Great utility watch. Altimeter and compass simple to use . Bezel spins freely but bearable. The liquid rubber strap I ditched for a Zulu nato strap which works brilliantly. The size is 46mm and wears like a 46mm so it is a pretty big watch. I like big watches . The lume on this particular watch does last glowing a blue hue for maybe 3hrs . I strongly recommend it .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I own six other Eco-Drive watches and love them! Bought this for what I know; Accuracy, Altimeter, Durability, Functionality, Quality, and Style. I know there is an earlier comment about the crown not being protected, but technically it is. If you look at other Eco-Drives with a crown placed at 3 o'clock, it is protected with bump guards and a lockdown crown. This watch has it at the 4 o'clock position and much less likely to suffer abuse. I've had my watch for a month now and no issues with the crown popping out or coming loose and no leaks during swimming or downpouring rain when out hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Timepiece! I absolutely love my Citizen Promaster Altichron watch. It feels amazingly comfortable and even comforting when you have it strapped on. It’s easy to read in low light, does not fatigue your wrist, is always fully charged, and never really needs and special charging or maintenance. Keeps time like a chronometer and is as sturdy as a tank. I never leave home without my spectacular Promaster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Citizen Pro Master Altichron is works Great ! Well first off the first time I saw a Citizen watch was in 1991 when I had finished Marine Corps Boot Camp and I saw a Cool Aqua land Series watch JP2004-07E it was Silver & Gold and had the depth gauge on the side of it . I though I was the bomb and had to have one so every since then it has been all those styles of watches by Citizen. One drawback then was every time my battery went dead you had to send your Pride and Joy away and you always had that good old "white mark around your wrist" until it got back but with this New style that is Old School stuff and long gone. This is my First Altichron watch and I was a little worried about buying one but I really love this thing and it looks Great and it is easy to use and everybody comments about it every time I go out to in it. I am a tech guy and I am spoiled by my smart watches etc, and my wife was surprised that I bought this for Christmas but after I put this on in the store I was hooked from that point :) I really think the Style of the rubber band and the entire Watch face etc looks really Good to me. I say go try one on and if you have ever owned a Citizen in the past you know what your getting into. I hope this review helps you guys out. Semper Fi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye catching watch...! I've been wearing this watch for over 2 months now and get more compliments on this watch then any other watch I wear. I'll admit, I don't use many of the altimeter functions as of yet... but I love the way the watch looks and feels. I have a small wrist and the watch is NOT too big for me.

Is this watch shock resistant?

Asked by: Roger from the beach
Yes. In fact it has a special function which disconnects the hands in a few milliseconds when a shock is detected. This is to avoid knocking the hands out of alignment.

I'm a Citizen fan and I really like the looks of this watch.  But I'm worried that the glass of an "adventure" watch like this was built with mineral and not sapphire crystal.  Is there no option to have an upgraded glass?

Asked by: BJJforever
The model watch mentioned does not have the option to change the crystal to a Sapphire crystal.
