The Citizen Promaster is a collection to pay attention to. No matter how fancy the design is, watches are meant to be functional pieces of technology. And when it comes to function, no other brand has done as much to improve upon the concept than Citizen. This applies especially with the brand’s top-of-the-line Citizen Promaster series.
When the first three models of the Promaster line were introduced in 1989, things have really looked up for Citizen. This lineup has been known for its cutting-edge innovations as well as durable and functional designs. These are all the makings for a typical adventurer timepiece.
Since its inception, the Promaster has introduced a series of models that have done Citizen proud. Some of these models include the following:
1. Citizen Promaster Aqualand
The original Promaster Aqualad diving watch was made from scratch to meet the needs of expert saturation divers. It was equipped with the first-ever digital depth gauge, replacing the heavier depth computer on longer scuba dives.
For land adventures, there was the 1989 Promaster Altichron. It was one of the first to include a digital altimeter navigate through elevations from 300M below to 5000 above sea level. The third one of the series was the Citizen Promaster Sky which was made for pilots. Its vast range of aviation features included a slide rule fuel-computing bezel. It was also one of the first to include a quick push-button world timer adjustment setting.
2. Citizen Promaster Land Eco-Drive
The Land Eco-Drive PMD56-2951 comes with a titanium case and a pretty green-curved dial. What’s more, is that it comes with sapphire glass, making it astonishingly scratch-proof. Its sword-type hands, white IP plating, and geometric shapes in place of the 6 and 12 numerals add to this watch’s uniqueness. The 3 o’clock date window breaks the dial’s green monotone.
It even features radio reception, charge warning, and fixed time reception. Besides that, there’s also anti-magnetism, 200m water resistance, and overcharge prevention warning. The watch is powered by a state-of-the-art solar quartz movement.
3. Promaster Professional Diver Citizen Watch
The Professional Diver watch is a remastered version of an old classic diving watch, now as an Eco-Drive Promaster. This new version comes with over 984 feet of water-resistance, allowing it to hold its own against other waterproof sports watches.
This watch is embedded with the Eco-Drive technology, so the sunlight is the only charging port you’ll need. This means that you’ll no longer need to charge the watch by plugging it into a socket or even have to use/replace batteries.
It is both comfortable and light and comes with a buckle closure and a molded polyurethane band. This makes the watch highly durable and functional that will stand against the forces of the outdoor world. The luminous hands and easy to read display ensure you always know the time whether you’re underwater or asleep at night.
The DLC-coated crystal dial window ensures that scratches or anything else doesn’t scratch the screen.
4. Promaster Navihawk A-T Citizen Watch
If you’re a complete horologist geek craving for a mess of technical functions, then this watch is it. Measuring in at 48 mm, the Navihawk is one of the largest in Citizen’s collection. It was designed to demand your very attention without looking for other means of telling time.
Given its size, it is just the right timepiece for pilots or those who travel a lot. This model has synchronized time adjustments in various cities from anywhere on Earth. Some of its best features include a perpetual calendar, an accurate GPS function, and a power reserve indicator. It even has 200m water resistance and a daylight savings time feature.
All those features in a stainless-steel case with black ion plating are just too good to ignore. And we shouldn’t forget to mention the luminous, black dial as well as the deep embossed black polyurethane strap.
The only downside to this watch is its overwhelming face display and functionality. It might be too much for those who are a complete novice to sophisticated timepieces. But once you get the hang of it, you’ve got more than just a pretty face right there on your wrist.
5. Citizen Promaster Land Eco-Drive Arti Klong
The Land Eco-Drive Ultimate Klong is an outdoor watch series that has more functions than its sporting qualities.
The Arti Klong is one that is a real headliner for this lineup. Its crystal glass and stainless-steel case offer immense durability and power. It features an electronic compass and an altimeter that measures altitudes at about 10,000 meters. This is an ideal thing to have for mountaineers and adventure trekkers.
Powered by the Eco-Drive technology, this watch has enough juice for 11 months once completely charged. And those who are fond of complex and playful designs, this timepiece is more than enough to satiate your hunger.
6. Citizen Promaster GPS Satellite Wave
If you’re taking a back a little bit by the less complex design here, don’t be. The Eco-Drive GPS Satellite Wave is ambitious and hi-tech as its name makes it out to be. This watch is already a trendsetter with it’s non-reflective material.
Its complex mechanism means it features some of the most impressive accruements and then some that any watch owner desires. It has a satellite timekeeping system, GPS signal reception, day and date display, summertime feature, and 40 different time zones. If that’s not good enough for you, then you haven’t seen the power reserve indicator, overcharge prevention function, and perpetual calendar. And all of that behind a solid stainless-steel casing.
Not only does this Citizen Promaster tick all the right boxes, but its craftsmanship is out of this world.
