    Bright new arrival!! Big Yellow ...

    PROTREK!!!!


    Yes I finally found my yellow watch. Ever since i got my red 7900, I've been inspired to find another color, this time for a yellow G. This year I have branched beyond the black and metal color schemes, and have gone full bloom into yellow. Trouble was, I couldn't decide on any yellow G's... at first I checked out the new yellow GA-100 but after seeing in person it is too glossy for me. The 5600's and 6900's aren't my style... and the yellow vintage colors GW-7900, well that one is a tough one. Almost pulled the trigger many times. Even lost a auction for a yellow Gaussman. But then I saw this one - a yellow ProTrek. This one is different - the PRG-110CJ-9 isn't all yellow resin.. has a mix of materials and colors. The grey resin, yellow metal, and stainless bezel give it a lot of neat contrast, and actually after seeing it's got an amber LCD I was sold. This is one cool summer sports watch!

    The only cons I can think of is since this is likely an only Asia-marketed item, it only does metric units. Strange that there have been other PRG-110 models released that do know imperial units, the module on this one (3207) is metric only. It's a minor quibble really. Oh and yeah - the other negative is this one doesn't fly under the radar - the wife thinks I have completely lost my head now .

    Love it for exactly the reasons you cite! The contrasting accents/colors are very nice. Very summery but not really overly loud color. Where did you stumble on it?

    You could drop that in a snowbank and still find it. It's beautiful.

    Thanks everyone - yes it is a great looking ProTrek! Pictures don't do it justice. I think I discovered it while perusing Protreks on watch-tanaka... and it was his pics that caused me to pull the trigger. And like always - Chino-san could source this model no problem.
