While many models from the series have the problem that the second hand, the strokes does not hit exactly,
I've had relatively good luck with that in this instance.
However, problems have when setting result: If you want that the minute hand to the competent
Line exactly achieved when the second hand reaches the top at 12, one often needs several attempts.
Frequently the pointer hits the minute not exactly, but is NEN millimeters too early or too late (so falls With a clock on something).
In my two Seiko chronograph this game works reliably.
Now the quality of the rubber-bracelet: if you take the edges of the bracelet looks (very outside, center)
can be identified by two band parts traces of production. It looks as if they were there separated / been punched.
In fact, all models in the Promaster series have the same problem.
My 400DM Citizen Chrono 1999 it had not in any event, despite the same price level.
The alleged display of the status of the Eco-Drive drive on top of the 12 of the ring you can probably not be taken seriously, as they solely
the previous illumination reflects, exactly as the other lines and pointer on the dial.
Last gripe: the glass. I've never seen a glass of a clock that so efficiently is sensitive to fingerprints.
Once draufgetippt helps only intense rubbing with the microfiber cloth, other cloths not help.
The Seiko I can plan smack as I will, until finally a trace of it is visible.
For durability even I can not say anything, but when Seiko same glass material as much less sensitive for stains
installed, then why not Citizen?
Okay .. It's rare that I begin a 4-star review with so much criticism. However, Citizen should put some more emphasis on successful quality control again.
4 stars there so that these Promaster is stunningly beautiful and simple, it offers a classic and uncluttered dial with stained hands,
which produce together with the band diving atmosphere, and finally connected for the fantastic luminosity in the dark with a great play of colors in
Pool-blue turquoise and bright green (centered on the charge level above).
Also, the Eco-Drive system promises me much good stuff and therefore it is enough "good" for a.
Despite the small blemish a buy recommendation.
