    Review of a premium Pro Trek PRT-3000

    Well, prompted by Fergfour’s thread, here is a review of a rare watch the PRT-3000.
































































































    This is one of only two full titanium Pro Treks Casio ever made, the other is the PRT-4000 ABC watch. These watches were made in Japan and only sold there. These were expensive watches when new, more expensive than the MRG’s of that time. It is because of that that they are so rarely seen.

    The PRT-3000 is a twin sensor model from 1998. It has an altimeter, barometer with a temperature function in addition.
    As well as the usual auto memory function for altitude, which records Min/Max and the time and date achieved, it has a manual measurement function with a specific recall memory function with time and date for temperature and altitude. This could be quite useful for just inputting to remember specific events. It also has an altitude alarm which could be useful to check that you have reached your desired position. You can set a reference altitude to check metres climbed from start.


    It has an altitude alarm and also a target altitude graph, which shows you graphically your progress to the target altitude. Very neat.

    As usual you can have the temperature, barometer reading and 26 hr barometer graph in timekeeping mode instead of the date. It has World Time, alarm and signal, and a 24hr stopwatch. It has an auto EL as well

    You can set the contrast of the display to six different levels. So a quite nicely featured watch for its time.
































































































    The watch feels great on the wrist, it feels like a premium product, which of course it was when produced. It is a large watch being 51mm wide but it wears very well as it is a comparatively short 45mm long and fairly slim at 12mm. It is really light of course being all titanium.

    I wish Casio would go back to making a full titanium Pro Trek, a la the MRG’s. Even the super expensive PRX ‘Manaslu’ models have some resin in their construction.

    Here is the watch with its all titanium ABC ‘cousins’ the PRT-4000s.









    A few wrist shots.




















































    So any thoughts on this rarely seen watch?

    Nicest Protreks that I've ever seen. What's the weight of that PRT3000 and the others if possible?

    Gorgeous and rare ProTreks! Thanks for the review.

    Not a ProTrek model, the MRG-1100 all titanium Frogman is a G-Shock from the summer of 1999. It has 200m WR and no sensors.

    Hi the watch weighs in at 110g.

    The PRT-4000s are really huge watches at 56mm by 52mm. They still only weigh a surprising 125g due to their titanium construction.

    Great watch but for me, I think that I still like my PRW 3500s more.
