The Protrek PROTREK PRW-5100T-7JF is the working-mans edition of this watch, available from your local Japanese retailer for under $700. Watch Tanaka gives us a good look at it and even shows how easy it is to operate the special features. It is an excellent timepiece with a top-of-the-line jazzy elegance about it.

      Don’t be a twit!!!! I have this watch. (Not the limited, but it looks so close it’s hard to tell the diff.) Paid about $350. That’s all it’s worth. I LOVE IT. Don’t get me wrong. But the finish rubs off the composite after awhile, the molded bezel where the buttons are and such. and the altimiter isn’t worth a s__t. But it’s one of the most comfortable, coolest, and most functional pieces I have. Once again, I LOVE it. But if you spend $800 on it you’re simply daft. VERY accurate. Within 3 secs after a year!!!!!! (Mine is not a waveceptor)
