The made-in-Japan PRW-61 is one of the standout Pro Trek series of the moment, featuring a not too large case (47.4-mm wide) made of biomass plastics and fully equipped with Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 auto radio time correction, and the Triple Sensor (pressure: altimeter-barometer, compass, thermometer). Casio is now teaming up with the 160-year-old Swiss outdoor brand Mammut for the release of the limited edition PRW-61MA-1A, an Alpine-themed watch that includes a cloth band and soft urethane band with quick-release levers.
The cloth band is made of recycled PET bottles with an Alpine print and an embroidered tag with the Mammut logo. The black soft urethane band, made from biomass plastics like the case and case back cover of the watch, has a Mammut logo printed on the band keeper. The Mammut logo (along with “Since 1862”) appears on the dial, and the mammoth logo appears on the case back. The minute and hour hands have an orange border, and the second hand is orange and white for high visibility. The stainless steel bezel has a black ion plating, and the hour markers have a silver vapor deposition.
In Japan, the PRW-61MA-1AJR will be released in November 2022 for 64,900 yen (tax-included). A wider release is expected with more information to come.
Update: Casio also announced the PRW-61MA-1A on its international Pro Trek social media accounts.
