Hands-On with the Citizen Promaster Tsuno

Hands-On with the Citizen Promaster Tsuno

Postby koimaster » July 11th 2019, 9:10am

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.

To quickly recap the re-edition, it comes in a 45-mm stainless steel case with a bullhead configuration (located on top of the case rather than on its right side, similar to a bull’s horns) for the chronograph pushers. There are four different dial colors: blue, orange, white, and white with red accents. Each has their own quirks such as a metal or leather integrated bracelet, a steel or black bezel and accents, and varying degrees of the limited copies with two being capped at 1973 total pieces. Each uses the same dial configurations, the same Citizen Eco-drive E210 movement, which integrates a solar-powered quartz mechanism with a mechanical chronograph, and they all hover around the same price point, currently being advertised at either $795 or $895.

I actually like the watch but it is not something I would buy for myself. Perhaps my daughter will buy it for me since she seems to like it a lot. :mrgreen:

I'll take the blue Promaster Aqualand instead.
I bought a dive watch from them that literally had “dive” in the name. The instructions said not to dive with it - it was only meant to LOOK like a dive watch. It was also fast by more that a minute per day. Garbage. Never again. - IWG buyer on Reddit

my favorite is still the BN0085. Mine is in a watchbox collecting dust but perhaps time to get it out again along with my JSAR.
