Re: Theres Tough,Then theres Citizen Super Tough...>>>>Thanks Rich Ocskasy...

The rubber encasing is a logical way to ruggedise a watch and I nearly bought the black version. While sourcing one I noticed when wearing my G-schock that the larger the watch the more likely it is to get clobbered.
I settled for a compromise and from a SAR vessel captain bought a Mühle Glasshütte S.A.R. with a rubber bumper ring. It is one of the watches actually tested on the Baltic and I wear it for SAR too. It has proofed this pudding; it is less prone to bumps then my G-schock and the rubber seems to do a job as it has a lot of sabi whereas the crystal is as new.
Bigger is not always better so while the rubber encasing is like putting it in a nuclear hide it will be a bump magnet if you intend to use it as a beater.
