A Closer Look At the Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Tough

If you are looking for a fashionable wrist watch that you can just set once and then forget about, the Eo-Drive Promaster Tough is waiting for you. It is billed as a watch that will run forever, and that may not be far from the truth. It seems as though the Eco has finally put technology to good use and created a product that does not even need servicing, nor do any of the parts have to be replaced. While it might not last forever, its toughness and durability are unlike anything most watch lovers have ever seen before. Let us take a closer look.

The History

The Eco-Drive Promaster has a bit of history behind it. The Super Tough has long been on the market, and it is largely known for how bulky and heavy it is. This new version still has the same philosophy of being an analog watch housed in a most sturdy case but is designed to be ultra light. You will find that the engineers have built a watch to withstand just about any type of abuse that the wearer can throw at it.

Many people might liken this watch to the early days of the G-Shock. The G-Shock, however, was built differently in that it was fashioned as an LCD watch with no inner parts to really be concerned about. Because the Eco-Drive has a lot of moving parts, its engineering feat is even more telling. To create a watch that could hold up under a lot of pressure and not suffer in terms of performance is quite impressive. Just like the G-Shock before it, you can wear the Eco-Drive Promaster Tough and not really have to worry about how physically demanding your life might be.

Bucking a Trend

Many people have long sought after what type of watch they can really love for years. While mechanical watches look great, many scoff at the regular maintenance that they must undergo. If you miss those scheduled intervals, the performance of the watch is likely to suffer sooner rather than later. While many watches have promoted the fact that they can run forever, history tells us otherwise. It is simply too difficult to keep them going.

Enter the Eco-Drive Promaster Tough. This watch finally seems to have gotten it right. You can continue to wear this watch without getting it repaired. It just keeps going and going. It would appear that you could just wear this watch for years and not notice any drop off in either its wearability or reliability. You could probably even neglect it in a drawer, only to discover it years later being no worse for wear. The only thing you might need to replace is the band from time to time.

Fashionable and Simple

There is no denying that the Eco-Drive Promaster Tough is lacking options. This should not turn off many users, however, because it is a sophistical watch that thrives on simplicity. LCD wrist watches come with many features, many of which the user never uses. If you want all of those bells and whistles, then this latest Eco watch might not be for you. However, this is a type of field watch that looks great and does what it needs to – tells you the time with pinpoint accuracy. You will never need a manual to figure out how to operate the Eco-Drive Promaster Tough.

The Design

You will find that the design of the Eco-Drive Promaster Tough is centered around a beautiful steel case. It has a monocoque construction features that allow for the movement to be inserted on the dial side of the watch. The diameter of this watch is 42mm, while it is only 10.75mm thick. In regards to the case exterior, you will find it to be decked out in Duratect. This is a titanium-based alloy that Citizen has patented. It is reported to be roughly five times more scratch resistant than the stainless steel used by other watches. To round things out, this watch is water resistant up to 200 meters and comes with a rechargeable cell located inside the watch. That rechargeable cell might be the only reason you will ever need to visit a repair shop in order to get it replaced.

So, there you have the Eco-Drive Promaster Tough. If you are looking for a simple, yet elegant watch that should last for years, this is the one for you. Take a look in person, try it on, and see what you think.
