    PRW-1500YJ-1JF questions

    The PRG-130GC-3DR/-4DR, PRW-1500CAJ-3/-4 and PRW-1500GB-4, which are pretty much the same watch give or take an atomic sync or color combination, all come with 2 straps, one of which is an elastic band.

    Does the PRW-1500YJ-1JF (YJ, not YTJ) also include an elastic or cloth/velcro band?

    Is there a non-atomic PRG version?

    The PRW1500YJ does not come with both bands just the bracelet. The PRG is not atomic. The PAW and PRW have the atomic feature. Hope that helps.

    Are you sure? The stock image of the PRW-1500YJ shows a rubber strap, not a bracelet (while the PRW-1500YTJ has a metal bracelet but not a reverse display).

    I was asking whether there is a non-atomic PRG version of the PRW-1500YJ, that is an all-black PRG-130YJ with reverse display.

    1500Y does exist, as for it being an international release, I would say yes given the negative display 1300Y/110Y was released outside of Japan, so a non "Atomic" version (PRG-130Y) will also be likely, however numbers may be limited. I only personally saw the 110Y in the wild for a short time, although it is still listed on the local Casio site, of course this may be related to the new 2000 which is basically an upgrade to the 1300 or simply just local market conditions.

    No, it's not. It's a JP-only release for the moment, so it's PRW-1500YJ.

    Picture Re: PRW-1500YJ-1JF questions

    Out in the wild now; $408 from Chino

    Don't know if it`s Casio, the Dollar or both, but your going to need it bad at that price, this one would be expensive even on a titanium bracelet, let alone a resin strap

    This non "Atomic" PRG-130 cost less than $210 with two straps

    Now it`s on the PRW-1500YTJ-1JF black IP coated titanium bracelet, and still getting fair change from $300

    PAW1500GB on a Black Titanium bracelet.

    That's a good deal, the lowest I found so far was $435 shipped on eBay.

    Which is the reason why I haven't bought it yet and was hoping for a much cheaper non-atomic "PRG-130YJ" version But it looks like Casio hasn't released one. Hopefully they will in a few months.

    I don't see any reason for Casio not to release a PRG-130Y, as long as the 1500Y is released globally, if not then the JDM will be the only option. I am expecting the PRG130Y to be around $300, the days of deeply discounted Casio ABC`s are fading fast. Full RRP seems to be looming closer as Casio looks more determined to push the brand image, not sure how that one`s going to work out, admittedly they have little if any competition with higher end digital`s.

    Pricing the 1500Y is priced for JDM, however in general locally I am seeing an increase, with the likes of the PRG-130GB being around $50 more and climbing.
