I wanted to post this earlier - I've had my newest arrival a little more than a week now but have been too swamped to take some pics. I have worn it pretty much every day except the weekend, and have completely fallen for it.
I should start I wasn't originally in the market for a Pro Trek or PathFinder, but instead was looking for a nice all digital MR-G. I love the classics like MRG-100, -110 and -200 but like many others who have posted before, I really would like to see a modernized update. I can imagine a digital MR-G with tough solar, atomic, multi-functional, current time visible in all modes, titanium band and case or other high-end material like DLC, with some protective anti-scratch coating, sapphire crystal w/ anti-reflective coating - pretty much a digital form of the modern analog MR-G's. However, such a watch may not be offered anytime soon.
I saw the marketing shots of the new Pro Trek Prestige models, but they didn't call my name.... instead it was solely due to the beautiful photos here on WUS that turned me on to this piece (big surprise there). Then I checked the specs - atomic, solar, titanium band and bezel (but I don't think the case is, it looks like the standard 'resin sandwich' surrounded by Ti), Ti has protective coating, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, very multi-functional, and current time is visible in all but one of the modes! I admit it clearly is not a G-Shock, and has a completely different kind of look, but man is it one sharp looking watch! The display is crisp, nice large digits, and couldn't be easier to read. Another thing, even though it is a pretty large watch at 47.7mm wide, but very thin at 11.3mm, it fits very comfortably on the wrist. It is very lightweight and easy to forget it's on, and slides under most of my shirt cuffs pretty easily. This could be the primary watch for the office, and already had a few nice comments last week. I never get comments on watches, so it was a surprise this one did!
Don't get me wrong - I still want a modern digi MRG, but for now this one is awesome. So - on with the pics!
I never thought I'd find Sunrise/Sunset mode useful, but I use it all the time! Naturally it switched automatically when we changed to standard time yesterday
I know compass pics have been posted before, but the duplex LCD is very cool to watch
A nice surprise for us Americans, this JDM model DOES know how to display in Fahrenheit and Feet!!
And of course some wristers
