    PRW-2000 Unboxing

    Today, my local dealer had good news for me: the PRW-2000 had arrived just in time for the weekend. Time to release it from it's wooden box...

    First impressions:
    The watch has a substantial size, and although being pretty slim, it doesn't feel "flimsy". On the wrist, it looks even bigger than a, say, "Riseman" GW-9200. I like the knurling of the metal ring: it's very precisely machined and lets the watch look fairly expensive. The top-section of the metal ring is quite shallow, which adds to the "flat" look of the watch, but I'm afraid that this layout will be a "scratch magnet".

    The wristband is nicely structured and feels thicker than a typical G-shock band. It isn't, though. The facetted sides just trick the eye. But it's more flexible, and feels rather rubber-like, compared to the G-shock's polyurethane.

    I like the colors of my new PRW-2000: the case and the band are not flat black, but anthracite. The display has a nice light blue background. The letters on the display are printed very crisp, but pretty small.

    What's not to like?
    The double-layer LCD is cool, and the compass-indicators are very crisp. But the normal numbers are fading a bit on different viewing angles. This LCD is no match to the latest G-Shock displays in terms of contrast. I guess this is a trade-off of the double-layer technology.

    Please have a look at the pictures, and the obligatory wrist-shot. What do you think?

    Congratulations Ralphee on your new watch and the first real-life photos I've seen of the PRW-2000.

    Please post some photos of the barometer and altimeter mode displays, especially the graphs.

    Konrad.

    Looks awesome - waaaaaaaaaaaaay better looking than the titanium version or the other metallic banded variants that have come out - nice choice.

    Good looking watch!

    The pictures of the actual watch are great to see. It makes my decision much easier and more expensive!

    I like the strap on it too!

    cool ralph, i think you've won the distinction of first in-possession post.

    this is a little chunkier than i was expecting. i think i prefer the buttons that are more exposed on the prx-2000t version. of course i prefer the price of the resin model! the tongue on that buckle is kind of snazzy. and hey- duplex is back! thanks again and enjoy the watch. looks like a good fit on your wrist.

    Very nice, but it does not share the same backplate as the prx-2000t version, I thought it would
