I can't explain the price differential on models with the same features, except that the prices go up and down pretty sharply with no apparent reason. My daily watch is this Pro Trek:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H3XHK64/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1I bought it at $189 on Amazon, and now its $225. You can shop around and find decent prices. After going to the G-Shock and its siblings (Pro Trek) 10x years ago, I've never gone back. The Pro Trek has the atomic function, which is awesome, along with barometer, compass, etc. I love it that the watch sets itself during the night, so it is always highly accurate.I also wear this one pretty often, but mostly because I think it looks great. It does not have the functionality of the Pro Trek.https://www.ebay.com/p/Casio-G-shock-GRAVITYMASTER-World-Time-200m-Black-Resin-Watch-Ga1100-2b/1960721336
With the PRW3000 and PRW3500 for example its the case size. There are also bezel difference as well, PRW3500 and PRW3100 for example. It would be great for you to go see the watches in person so you can get a sense of how the watch will fit.
They all look great but for my boney skinny wrists its the distance from lug to lug that makes all the difference in comfort. I also don't like a thick case or to big a diameter. I know watches are growing increasingly large but for me I don't care for them. Having a ABC watch however especially a PROTREK is always a win.
Hi Carboncopy, we seem to be flying the same flag I'm using an ABC G-Shock but I wouldn't mind having a Protrek. With that said:Go for Protreks with triple sensor -- Altimeter, Barometer/Thermometer, Compass. Most, if not all of them also have Solar batteries and sunrise/sunset features.There are "PRG" versus "PRW". The PRG-270 is a great entry-level Protrek at less than Php10k in the malls. The "PRW" watches add atomic timekeeping to the features. Note that unless you're in a very elevated area, the atomic timekeeping doesn't always bite in our country.As a general rule, the all-digital models are cheaper than the analog-digital models. The higher the model number, the higher the price. Hence, a PRW-3500 is lower than a PRW-6100. A PRW-7000 would cost more than a PRW-6100. Not all Protreks have sunrise/sunset. Not all Protreks have sapphire crystal glass.You can get more details here:http://www.casio-intl.com/asia/en/wat/protrek/and call your nearest Time Depot store in the mall to ask for availability.I wouldn't mind having a PRW-7000 either the "3" or "8" version, but it costs a lot locally.You can also check the "Master of G" G-shock lines. My daily watch is a Mudmaster and I have skinny wrists. No, I do not feel like Ben 10 wearing it
Hi pietervn!That's it resin rot. I'm considering the atomic model cause I travel a lot and it's cool! Lol. Actually the one with atomic model is cheaper than the non atomic one. Weird haha. Tried a prg270 I think during a climb yesterday. It's useful! I did observe the change in pressure cause of a storm. I'm impressed!

I'm impressed!It sounds like the Atomic will be useful then. I like keeping an eye on the barometer as I ride a motorbike daily. It helps me remember to pack the wet weather gear. Have a look at the PRW2500T-7, it is Solar, Atomic and comes in Titanium. Not the cheapest, but a fine watch. I like mine a lot. You will not have resin rot issues with it. Bear in mind, although they market them as Ti, it is only the band that is Ti, the watch is resin with usually a SS or Aluminium bezel.Cheers,Pete
The model you have IMO is nice as the screen shows quite a bit more info as opposed to the 3500 series.
My most used watch is a Casio ProTrek PAW 1500GB. Fantastic watch.
