PRICE

PKR 15,000 / USD 176


FIRST IMPRESSIONS

It's BLACK. As Black as I would like it to be.

It has that popular ABC function (Altimeter, Barometer, Compass) which Casio has been refining over the last many years coupled with the handy moon phase and tide modules. I really wanted a stealthy wrist watch and it's reverse LCD display serves this purpose well. Although not as clear as normal LCD screens, but still it is quite clear and readable. The backlight is excellent (refer image above). The watch has a rugged case and the whole built seems and feels solid. The quality of it's resin band is head and shoulders above other Casio watches that I've seen and used.

The only negative that I've been able to come up with is with the front two buttons, ADJUST and LIGHT which are sometimes hard to press, given their shape.

I normally use a cheap watch from WalMart, as I look for something that can tell time and date. But my wife, in a fit of spending when we had a small inheritance to blow, ordered me this watch, a 5.11/NRA watch for roughly $200. It has a compass built in, which is a nifty thing, and a snipers' ballistic calculator I never use, lacking a chronograph. Other than that, I'd never have spent that kind of money on a watch.

SA what an excellent buy, I have a PRG-40, but it has less than half the functions this one has, have been looking for one for some time, but haven't been able to find one. PLEASE SHARE WHERE DID YOU GET IT FROM. :)

Pro Trek are excellent watches, if one is outdoor type and keeps going for hiking, climbing, route marches etc. I bought one in 2000 and it served me well till 2007, specially during travel in mountains and deserts.

Great buy SA, congrats.

The "tri sensors" I've seen are quite expensive. 15K for this seems most reasonable, SA I may contact you to get one for me too! ;)

I'll be visiting the shopping plaza from where I bought it with Saif on either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Will try to book five to six of these. The thing is that although they had the ProTrek series, but the number of similar model pieces were limited. They seemed to have two/three of each model of ProTrek. Will get back to you guys are me and Saif visit the shops again.

MR, you might be opening the pandora box in this case. Rest of the committee members will also demand a watch each.

BTW, next year we might hear him announcing "Pro Trek" as the witness. ;)

Three Pro Treks will be required to complete the Shahadat. And I doubt if people in KPK will recognize this :lol:

Bhai I can not recieve any pictures for some reason at TGF.
I just started to get all pictures. My watch is the same as SA 's watch except mine has a Titanium bracelet. I think I got ripped off as I paid 20,000/-for it.

I am not an expert but may I suggest you switch your internet browser. Please download and use Chrome or Firefox. It may resolve the pictures issue.
