    The good thing about the band/bracelet/stap is you can always change it out.

    I have no idea why anyone would buy a quartz watch that isn't solar powered. Especially at higher price points!

    Here's a Nick Shabazz review of the Tough :: https://youtu.be/xbXcEOplLM4

    EDIT to add, here's Random Rob's look at my PMD56. You'll notice nearly all of the complaints Nick has (weight, date window, no tool-less quick adjust on the clasp, no perpetual calendar, not-so-great lume) are all fixed on the PMD56. AGAIN...but it does cost more, and it has a very different look, which you may or may not like. I happen to like the look of both.

    I know! That video was so bad!! Thanks for the other suggestion, but just not my style.

    This is very useful input for me as I'll wear it with a long sleeve shirt often.

    Re: Citizen Promaster Tough vs Victorinox INOX

    After considering all the good information here, I'm now the proud owner owner of a promaster tough! I'm really loving most everything about this watch, so thanks again to all who shared some insight.

    Now I'm not sure if this is worthy of a new post or not, but to all of you who have a promaster tough, does your bezel come all the way down to the case or do you have a slight gap like mine?

    Oh that gap is awful, exchange for an INOX immediately!!!
    LOL, just joking, congrats and wear it in happiness. I don't have Promaster, but if you look at the pictures for example here:
    https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/ci...ue-proposition
    or even the official Citizen site:
    https://www.citizenwatch.com/us/en/p...N0211-09X.html
    it looks as the bezel has a gap to the case.
    It's hard to quantify if yours is bigger - you may try to press it down to see if the gap will disappear.

    Ha!

    I'm probably overthinking it, but I just don't see the same short line of a gap in any pictures online. I'm talking about that very short line of light coming through under the bezel on the left side of my pic. My other Citizens don't have anything like it.
    Regardless, thanks for taking the time to show me those links!

    I can't speak to the INOX, but the Promaster has been the watch I reach for most often since I got it. If you're like me, and don't like watches that are overtly "shiny" or gaudy then the Promaster is perfect - not a polished surface to be found. I went with the green dial since I found it a little more attractive but I put it on an OEM metal bracelet.

    Thanks for the comment!

    Does yours have a gap under the bezel like mine if you hold it up to the light and look at it directly from the side?

    Re: Citizen Promaster Tough vs Victorinox INOX

    Alright guys, I know you're all dying to know so here's my latest update. After a few emails with Citizen I determined the gap I've been so concerned about is there by design because that's how the innards are accessed due to the one piece case. The more you know...
