As a PRO TREK, "Multi Field Line" has a waterproof property of 20 bar, which is one step ahead, and supports activities in various outdoor fields. The latest work is "PRW-70". This time, in addition to the black dial "PRW-70Y-1JF", we will carefully deliver the appearance and details of the white dial "PRW-70-7JF" with photos.
Please see the separate article [https://news.mynavi.jp/article/20200308-casio2020spring3/] for detailed information such as functions and specifications. PRW-70Y-1JF is on sale for 70,400 yen [tax included] and PRW-70-7JF for 68,200 yen [tax included].
The module [mechanical part] is the same as PRW-7000. Everything else is renewed!
In PRO TREK's multi-field line,PRW-7000There is a famous machine. The PRW-70 is, in other words, its downsizing version.
Equipped with triple sensor Ver.3 that can measure altitude, pressure / temperature, and direction. The altitude can be measured in units of 1 second / 1m [* 1], and advanced features such as an "atmospheric pressure tendency information alarm" that teaches a sudden change in atmospheric pressure and an "automatic horizontal correction function" that captures the correct direction without the dial being level It is equipped with functions.

In addition, it corresponds to the world time and UTC [Coordinated Universal Time] time display in 31 cities in 48 cities around the world, fishing time, moon data, tide graph, and sunrise / sunset time display. The drive is of course tough solar [solar power generation], and the radio clock function that supports multi-band 6 allows you to always display the correct time in the area where the standard radio wave for the clock reaches.
These specifications are almost the same as the PRW-7000. The world time is also a time stamp for PRO TREK, which is a serious testimony to the time zone of "Kathmandu, Nepal, where the eight seats of the 8,000m peak are located."
So how different are the sizes of the PRW-7000 and PRW-70? The case size of the PR-W7000 is 58.7 x 52.3 x 14.5 mm, while the PRW-70 is 51.1 x 49.9 x 14.5 mm.
I don't think it will come out right even if I write "……", so I drew a frame line of 58.7 x 52.3 mm [PRW-7000 case diameter] and put the PRW-70 in it. You can see that both the top and bottom are downsized.
Even though it is a downsized version, the finish and texture are completely unchanged. The PRW-7000 has a windshield that was sapphire glass, but the PRW-70 is made of inorganic glass, and the carbon fiber insert band is a silicone resin durasoft band. As it is.
Rather, the iron-like IP treated case [PRW-70Y-1JF] has a subtle texture, and the length of the index and the shape of the hour and minute hands have been adjusted to make it easier to see. As a result, the precision and clock-likeness have improved.
Redesigned side buttons, front buttons, back lid, sensor cover, and crown. The anti-slip on the top of the side button is made more slippery using the latest 3D texture, and the tide gauge, which did not illuminate at night on the PRW-7000, has been improved to illuminate.
Employs a crown type design that makes it easy to grip the crown. It is easier to pull out and easier to turn. In other words, it exceeds the famous machine PRW-7000 in many parts.
The Dura Soft Band is slim and easy to wear, and I like it because of its moist feel. It is also good that you can easily remove the band with the slide lever [without any special equipment or technique], of course.
It makes it easier to clean small gaps, keeps your watch beautiful and clean, and plans to release a separate replacement band and attachment that can handle this. The lineup includes Durasoft band Karabari, textile bands, and carabiners, so it will be even more fun to wear. In addition, this separately sold band is compatible [compatible] with "PRW-50", "PRW-60" and "PRW-30" scheduled to appear in the summer of 2020 [* 3].
* 3: Please note that the PRG-600 band cannot be used.
The white dial "PRW-70-7JF" is characterized by a look that does not look like PRO TREK and a normal liquid crystal with high visibility. The light blue color is also refreshing.
Overall, the PRW-70 has absolutely no complaints. If you are looking for an outdoor watch with a combination model of analog and digital, no, if you are thinking of buying a watch, this is one that I would definitely recommend.
