Citizen’s new Promaster Tsuno Chrono 50th Anniversary Model celebrates a chronograph from 1973 prized for its panda-style dial and ‘bullhead’ case-top pushers.

The new Citizen Tsuno Chrono 50th Anniversary Model.

While retaining both those emblematic design highlights, the new commemorative edition also exudes the cool 1970s feel of Citizen’s highly collectible bullhead-style Challenge Chronograph of the era.

The original 1973 Citizen Tsuno Chrono.

For this commemorative model, Citizen has taken that vintage aura to the next level by creating a rich gold and black color scheme.  

Limited to 3,000 pieces worldwide and individually numbered, the Citizen Tsuno Chrono 50th Anniversary Model offers a 45mm gold-toned Promaster steel case with its bullhead-style black chronograph pushers nicely matching the black bezel.

At the same time, Citizen gilds the 12 o’clock crown and the alarm-setting crown at 5 o’clock to perfectly coordinate with the case and dial color.

Against this black and gold backdrop, the watch’s luminous sword-style hands and orange chronograph hands easily hold your attention, especially useful when using the chronograph or checking the time.

Inside Citizen fits its light-powered Eco-Drive Caliber E210, which features a power reserve of eight months after a full charge. Water resistance is a strong 200 meters.

The watch arrives with a special gold toned Promaster case and a removable leather watch roll.

The movement powers a flyback chronograph function with a 60-minute totalizer at 12 o’clock, the running seconds display at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour totalizer at 6 o’clock, power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock, a date display and an alarm on/off indicator between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock.

Citizen maintains the retro styling here with a vintage-inspired brown leather strap with a deployant clasp.  

Price: $1,195.
