    Help me decide! PAW2000 on bracelet.

    Ok I am a big fan of the 2000 and am going to keep one of them only. I have one 2000 on a spare stock Ti bracelet and 1 stock 2000T.

    My dilemma is I am not sure I like the different color case from bracelet on the stock 2000T but I like the face of the 2000T better. I think the 2000 strap version looks best on the Ti bracelet but I am having a hard time deciding.

    I don't like the looks but I like the comfort of wearing of the Ti bracelet a lot

    The standard with resin bracelet looks best to me. Not an option on your poll so I picked the next best the standard Ti version. The black case just does not blend well with the Ti bracelet at least to me.

    Casio should have come out with a black Ti bracelet that would look the best. As Q6 pointed out the stock Ti does not match the bracelet very well. For what these cost Casio kind of dropped the ball. Except of course on the upscale version that does in fact have the black bracelet But Casio really makes you pay for those

    Tough question, I didnt vote - but I think the black one on the left with a resin strap would look the best

    I voted for the original PAW-2000T because I prefer the stock models instead of the moded ones !

    Mine says hello !

    Anyone have a PRX-2000T? I am contemplating just selling off my pathfinders and picking up one of these. I really like the new one prx-2000YT with the blue accents instead of rose gold but it's limited production and like 1500 dollars...

    New question: Would you rather have a PAW2000T, PAW2000, and PAW5000 or only a PRX-2000T?

    Well the PRX are awesome lookers to be sure but my budget for this type of sport/field use watch is probably waaayyyy lower than yours. So I'll only speak about the watches I've owned and handled.

    1. PAW5000. In a word, awesome. Stock still seems pretty scarce (and prices high) for the NA model but it has real presence and certainly ups the 'fit n' finish' ante for the pathfinder line. Still a very competent ABC ta boot and the tough movement is just icing on the cake. I bought the strap version (nice thick pliable resin that blows away the stock strap on the 2000) and sourced a Ti bracelet from Tiktox:







    2. Like you, I've owned both versions of the 2000. The case on the Ti version is beautiful but the contrast with the Ti bracelet eventually drove me nuts so I sold it. The bracelet does fit much better with the silver bezel on the strap version, no question. So if I knew I'd wear that sucka on a bracelet often, I'd dump the original Ti version and keep your modded one.
    I also found the standard 2000 resin strap a real disappointment...thin and insubstantial...not much better than my $50 Casio twin sensor watch so I'd naturally prefer the Ti bracelet on that watch anyway. It will also probably be easier to sell the unmodded PAW2000T.

    On the other hand, the case on the paw2000T really is boss...and would look spectacular combined with any number of straps.

    Doctor,

    I think it depends how much money you want to spend. I think the 5000 is the cat's meow. I am going to purchase the new 240 when it comes to the United States. If I had unlimited funds I would buy the 5000. I do not like the shiny bezel look on the 2000 (IMO).

I think I am going to stick with the regular versions of both on Ti bracelets if anything. I may put the 2000T on a strap so the black of the bezel ring will blend with the black resin band and not have that darker gray/light gray of the case/Ti contrast. I go back and forth with this and saying ah forget it, I'm just going to sell all three and get a prx2000T!!! It's really tough... (no pun intended)

    The PRX-2000 is a great ABC watch with an excellent module.

    I have the 2000YT which has a really classy feel but is probably not best suited for any heavy duty outdoor action due to its superb finishing and polishing, the case really shines.
