The newest addition to the highly functional Casio Pro Trek family is the Casio Pro Trek PRW3000 and it is a jewel with no jewels. As a mechanical watch aficionado I tend not to wear quartz watches... maybe it's snobbish of me or simply it's realizing that with limited time in each day, I just want to have something on my wrist that I appreciate and I find has soul. However, since I am also an active and practical person, I also make three exceptions to this rule: Garmin sports watches; Swatch watches; and Casio watches.
Sports watches have obvious value to me when I wear them. They are extremely useful when doing various sporting activities: cycling; running; swimming and so on, as I love to record and analyze as much data as I can from my activities.
The Swatch watches I sometimes wear is because they remind me of my adolescence as they were the watch to own when I was growing up. Swatches were the current generation's iPhone. I own many of them and a few have survived to this day. But Casio watches I appreciate and wear because they are truly indestructible tool watches with incredible technology packed in tiny sizes with high-utility and style. In this review I take a close, hands-on look and review of the Casio Pro Trek PRW3000.
Adi Soon had a great preview write up about Casio Pro Trek PRW3000 during Baselworld 2013 when it was first announced. I will try to be complementary to his post and primarily show the Pro Trek in its most natural environment: mountaineering or mountain biking.
