Recently I received a package from Japan containing my new Protrek, the PRW-2500B-3JF. I remember seeing it among the various Casios pictured at Baselworld and was immediately intrigued. Until now I hadn't really been that interested in the PRW-2500 series ... sure I liked that it was a nice upgrade from the 1500 - still 20BAR WR now with duplex LCD. But the crowded display, the free moving compass bezel (doesn't really stay put), and same old sensors, didn't make me pull the trigger. When the olive green case showed up though, with the green camouflage cloth/synthetic leather strap, it all fell together. Everything looks very sharp and very subdued compared to the previous offerings (all metal bits have been blacked out to reduce light reflections). Then there's the slightly green watch face - It's a complete stealth package, but in olive green! Long ago I had an olive green Seiko and lost it years ago .. I am happy to have a new olive green in the mix. Functions have been fully flushed in other reviews, so let's get on with the pics!
The cloth/leather strap is very comfy, much more so than any of my other Protreks with resin straps. The strap moves freely through the adapters but when on the wrist stays put.
I love the different textures on the strap ...
Love this colorway -
Finally, on the wrist - (did I say it is very comfortable?)
Thanks for looking!
