    Casio PRW-2000-1ER Initial Impressions. . . . .

    My first and very early thoughts on Casio's newest European release ProTrek,the PRW-2000-1ER.Watch arrived in brown Protrek box inside is like a balsa-wood type crate/display case thick instruction manual module number is 3172.The watch was set to Berlin so after setting home city as,"London",it synced effortlessly on first set up.The display has a slightly dark(ish)appearance contrast-wise but the watch itself is large but extremely thin for a Protrek and very light.Oh and if You love features on a watch then this is for You!The Sunrise/Sunset times are an added bonus for an Airline Pilot like Me as are the 24-Hour stopwatch/countdown timer.I will take pictures later and let You Guys judge!

    I'm quite interested in this watch... just wish it was a bit more colourful so I'm waiting for a special edition.

    Get us some pics! Don't do it whilst flying though!

    Is the Euro- version Black or Grey?

    Pics!!!!

    I like the looks of the watch but love the thicker size of the 80 and 1100 series.

    This could put me over the top though! I am curious to see new variations that will come out in the future too.

    Congrats on the new piece! It always makes me feel like a little kid again for a few days!

    Hi Lee i've posted pics in a seperate post just a few items down the Sunrise/Sunset times is very useful for Me as flight rules are different for night flying than day flying i also think Casio have stolen the idea from Suunto and their range of Core watches but You can configure the Casio PRW-2000 to get Sunrise/Sunset times for Your particular Town/City.

    Casio will no doubt release multiple versions of the 2000, standard resin & Ti bracelet are out. I think it would be safe to say they will release a version on strap adapters, and possibly some more colours green etc.

    One trend is that with the 1300/110 and 1500/130 Casio has revised the module improving accuracy etc. This might be worth noting for those who are wanting a different version and prepared to wait beyond the initial release.

    The 24 hour CDT has me really close to buying this watch.

    I just like the thicker size of the 80 and 1100 series. I guess I will get used to it after some time. The 1300 series just seemed too flimsy to me. I know its not but thats how it felt.

    Does the "dual-layer" display (LCD) make it more difficult to see this display compared to the 80 and 1100 series?

    The 2000 is thiner again than the 1300/110 which also has a 24hr CDT. The display should be no worse than the 80/1100 as they too use the same duplex technology. The module is the same as the PRX-2000 and all reports are of a good clear display.
