The Citizen Promaster has quickly become one of the most coveted dive watches in the world. Since the launch of the original model back in 1997, this iconic watch has been one of Citizen's most reliable performers. In fact, the original model was so popular that Citizen was forced to make an upgrade after consumers became frustrated with the poor quality of the watches that came after the original release. This new version was engineered to be more reliable and waterproof while also being lighter and feature-rich than the original model. All told, this watch is about as reliable as it gets, making it a particularly great choice for men and women on the go.
Like many of Citizen's high-quality chronograph watches, the Citizen Promaster is designed with an unbroken, fully-functioning mechanical link bracelet. Instead of relying on plastic or some other material to construct the links, the engineers instead made use of stainless steel. This ensures that the Watch is as durable as you can get, while also allowing for a sleeker design that goes well with corporate attire. Unlike some other watches, the Citizen Promaster utilizes a push-piece in order to chronograph the seconds, instead of relying on a traditional push-piece that allows for more resistance when pressing against the face. Because of this, the movement of the watch is smoother, which means that there is less friction and a more accurate reading of your time.
The stainless steel case of the Citizen Promaster is surrounded by a deep blue dial that features a soft blue hour marker. Purple luminous hands provide light to the dial and are surrounded by a striking red inner ring. Beneath these two features is the officially licensed Swarovski Logo that provides an extra layer of insight into what makes this timepiece so special. While this logo is clear on the dial and the case, the Super Titanium, a hard material that weighs 2.2 ounces and is eighteen times stronger than steel, makes up the Super Promaster's body.
Speaking of body, the Citizen Promaster comes packaged in a beautiful blue leather bag. The bag itself houses the timepiece, in a way that is both functional and fashionable. It includes a buckle strap with a hook, a carry case, a coin pocket, and a complementary brown leather strap that are comfortable for wearing. In addition to this, the bag has blue angels embossed upon its exterior, ensuring that collectors and fans of this watch will be able to spot the genuine article wherever it goes.
At the bottom of the Promaster, on the back is a very attractive stainless steel back plate that contains a neat rectangular shape. The face of this watch is simply a single round dial that is decorated with a faint blue star field. While some people may not find the Star Wars mark to be particularly interesting, many others will be charmed by the overall look and feel of this stainless steel watch. The Citizen Promaster also features a date function, which is located on the opposite side of the dial, on the stainless steel back plate.
The overall look and feel of the Citizen Promaster warrants that this watch be considered a serious investment. If you are going to be wearing your Citizen Promaster on a daily basis, you will not want to sacrifice quality for anything less. With its affordable price tag and the fact that it is fully water resistant under all conditions, you can rest assured that you are getting an excellent deal when you invest in one of these beauties. As a final thought, if you are planning on purchasing one of these watches for yourself as well, you can rest assured that you are making a smart decision. The Citizen Promaster line of watches is known for being very durable and versatile, and this watch definitely fits into that category.
