    Citizen Promaster Tough or Scurfa...

    Trying to decide on my next quartz and I've narrowed it down to the Promaster Tough in green, or a Scurfa (color undecided). Quite different style-wise I know.

Size:  307.7 KB SS, 500M, sapphire crystal, Ronda 715 quartz, Case size 40 mm by 47.7 by 14.4mm thick, 20mm lugs. Around $260

    The only thing I'm unsure about with the Citizen is the fit with the 50mm+ lug to lug size but that's not much bigger than my BN0151. Unsure of the quality of the lume compared to say the BN0151 or NY0040.
    The only thing I'm unsure about with the Scurfa is the thickness but I do have other watches around the 14mm range.

    I have a feeling I'll just have to try both but if anyone has or had both I'd be interested in hearing some thoughts. Thanks!

    I don't have either but, I think the Citizen would be more versatile because of the hands, do they both have different color combinations?
    Just realized you have Citizen already, what the heck go for the Scurfa

    Two awesome watches. Can’t beat that Scurfa color combination — I think I would pick that one. I just wish he would offer that in a ND version. To be even more picky, I wish the hour indicators were outlined like in the yellow model.

    Citizen looks worse in real world photos and the Scurfa is better in person than promo photos.


    Scurfa!

    I went with the limited edition (# of 100) Scurfa since it's almost sold out. Figured the Citizen would still be there in a month or 2.

    I have both and wouldn't be able to pick one over the other. The Citizen is less of a dive watch and a bit more formal. It goes with just about any strap. The titanium coating on the Citizen is pretty incredible. Really tough to scuff up. The Scurfa is a bit thicker, sportier, you have more choices of dial/hands colors and doesn't have a titanium coating and there is no bracelet.... yet. I like the thicker hands on the Scurfa but I'm a bracelet guy so I find myself wearing the Citizen Tough a bit more.

    Phew! You saved me having to big Surfa up on the Citizen forum. You’ll like your Scurfa when it lands.

    The Citizen Tough is on my short list still, along with one of the lumed dial autos too I suppose. Never-ending list....
