Really liking this homage from Citizen. I like the the look of the cream dial but I've seen it in other color combinations that look pretty good.

Aside from the integrated bracelet,awkwardly placed crowns, horrible date placement,large size, and the fact that it's just the same as a model released some years ago but flipped 90 degrees, it isn't bad.

Hands-On

"In March of 2018, Citizen revealed the Promaster Tsuno Chronograph Racer, a 1970s inspired bullhead chronograph developed to commemorate a century of the company’s operation. The watch was considered a quick success among pundits and enthusiasts after its announcement, and I’ve been looking forward to going hands-on with it ever since. About a month ago, I received word from Citizen that the watch was ready, and a week after that, it was strapped to my wrist for the better part of two weeks."

Not big on bullheads - I like super complicated quawrtz wartches, though, and I like the dial the more I look at it but the strap is a deal killer.

Citizen Tsuno Eco-Drive Chronograph Racer

Watchmaking has some apparent fundamental dichotomies across which no bridge (apparently) can be thrown: in-house vs. ébauche, date window vs. no date window, 38mm or smaller vs. everything. Probably the most basic, of course, is quartz vs. mechanical – if connoisseurship is defined to some degree by what it rejects, the first thing budding watch connoisseurs generally do is reject quartz watches out of hand (I sure did). However, as with the in-house movement debate, it turns out that the reality is considerably more nuanced, as well as much more interesting, and watches that have a foot in both worlds make up a small but significant part of modern watchmaking history.

Of course, such watches can be very polarizing – the Seiko Spring Drive watches, for example, had a very uphill battle to find acceptance among serious watch enthusiasts but with the passage of time, and the telling of their story in greater detail, Spring Drive has become more and more accepted as part of the modern, fine watchmaking landscape. Seiko is not the only company that has combined some aspects of quartz technology with mechanical technology – one of the most explored alternatives to a pure mechanical or pure quartz watch has been in the production of chronographs, with Jaeger-LeCoultre's so-called mecha-quartz (or méca-quartz) chronograph caliber 631, which was developed in 1987, one of the better known examples.

I do like Citizen - but it looks to me like they just took a 2100 and rotated the movement 90 degrees

Well I should have read a little deeper into the article because they actually state

"The new Tsuno chronograph's caliber E210 is basically the caliber 2100 with the movement rotated 90 degrees to the left, in keeping with the usual procedure for adapting a chronograph movement to a bullhead configuration."

At least they are being upfront about it.

Think of some nice car from the 1970s. Now imagine it being subjected to "countryside visual tuning" with a redundant body-kit and whatthefucknot, making it look like a vacuum cleaner. Well, that's more or less what Citizen did. They took a nice 1970s design and shamelessly fucked it up.

It has many fine steel gear handles. This should count for something, you fucking haterz.

There a lot of straps for this and others that are similar. I guess I am alone in liking this watch. :scratch:
