    Searching for you wristwatch.Between the two...

    Good morning im new in your forum which so far was my guide searching for a new wristwatch.Nice meeting you all im 29 years old and im a forest firefighter.I spend this week searching and asking in different stores around the world for prices and products which i couldnt find.I need a watch to take it to work with me.I end up with these two beautys

    Casio Protrek


    PRW-1500GBJ-1JR

    and

    Casio Protrek

    PRW-1500CAJ-4JR



    The thing is the first i cant find it anywhere.I found it on ebay for 475$ and the second(which i find it) for 500$-580$.
    Whats the difference between those two?Last night i found this too
    Casio PROTREK PAW1500GB-1A

    for 330$ from the same store.


    How come the PRW-1500CAJ-4JR has 580$ and the PAW1500GB-1A has 330$?Is it something with the material?Excuse me if i get you confused with my questions but first time i get involved with these things.

    Welcome to the forum! You're right to ask questions like this, so don't worry.

    I'm not a Protrek expert myself, but there are many here who will be able to answer and advise you

    The first and third seem to be the same model. They're all actually the same model, the middle one is a special edition though and a little more expensive.

    They are quite big watches but they should fit over your sleeve if need be.

    hello.

    agreed with above, the first and third are the same model. the reason they have different full designations is because of their intended market. your middle option is a relatively new color scheme only for japan so far as i know. and i agree, it's slammin! here's the watch tanaka photo set for it.

    your best bet is the gb model. at this moment amazon has it for 260. they are a reputable source for casios.

    Never ordered from superchrono but from what I've seen, their watches are massively overpriced. If your order is only an hour old it shouldn't have shipped - contact them ASAP to cancel.
