    PRW-1500YTJ-1JF or PRX-2000T-7JF

    First of all I would like to say a big hello to all the great forum members! For some days now as a visitor I have been greatly informed on various watch subjects in this very friendly and informative forum. I own 2 gshocks 2 waveceptors and a PRG-120. During the last week I have been drooling for two watches, the PRW-1500YTJ-1JF and the PRX-2000T-7JF. The first I like very much because of its stealthy look and the second because of its dual lcd. I would really like to be able to buy both but for now only one can be acquired! If you had to choose between the two which one would you choose and why? Thank you in advance!

    (P.S. I have found the PRW-1500YTJ-1JF for 440 euros locally, as for the PRX-2000T-7JF Ι can only find it on the internet via Japan)

    :thanks

    A lot depends on what you plan to use the watch for, the 1500 is one of Casio`s weaker ABC`s and the PRX is more of a luxury "premier" watch. alternatively you could wait for the new PRW-2000T which shares the same module with duplex LCD as the PRX-2000 at a much more realistic price

    Queen6 thanks for the reply! I mainly picked these watches for their looks. I do some very light trekking but nothing serious, so I would first enjoy the looks of the watch and would welcome some added functions, but would not require a hardcore abc watch. Concerning the dual lcd with compass bearings on the prw-2000t, I suppose the compass bearings on the prw-1500ytj-1jf are similar to the prg-120 so they must be less easier to see, right? (but that all black look of the prw-1500ytj-1jf is very eye catching!)

    The all black YTJ is a Japanese market release and has a suitably high price tag, you might also want to look at the GB version (below)



    Yes the bearing display on the 1500 is similar to the 120, the duplex display of the 2000`s is much better like the older PRG-80. the release of the PRW-2000 and 2000T is imminent, and unless you need the moon & tide data will be a better watch than the 1500. It will also only be a matter of time before a 2000YTJ is released as this is Casio`s typical pattern.

    If looks are the deciding factor the 1500 & 130 (non "Atomic" version) is definitely one of the most aesthetic Protrek`s and wont disappoint

    If you like a stealth look, then I would go with this one, great watch and don`t let the price hold you back. I love mine
