The Casio Pro Trek PRW-60 series is a smaller, full-featured analog-digital Pro Trek. It takes all the features of the Pro Trek PRW-6100 and puts them into a pared-down body through the use of the new Cross Frame Structure in which the lugs are integrated into the case back. These features include Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 radio timekeeping, and the Triple Sensor (with altimeter-barometer, compass, and thermometer). An enhanced feature is the Neon Illuminator as part of the full auto double LED light, which makes the fluorescent-coated hands and markers highly visible in the dark with a UV-A LED. A second LED light illuminates the LCD display. A mirror finish is applied to the index markers for a refined appearance. The bands are made of Dura Soft silicone. Other features include 100-meter water resistance, world time (29 cities + UTC), 1/100 second stopwatch, countdown timer (60 minutes), 5 daily alarms, and battery level indicator.
The PRW-60 measures 50.5 x 47.2 x 13.3 mm which is significantly smaller but a little thicker than the PRW-6100’s 58 x 51.6 x 12.8 mm.
Debut models include the navy PRW-60-2A with reverse LCD, white PRW-60-7A with standard LCD, and black PRW-60Y-1A with reverse LCD. The PRW-60-7A is the first white analog-digital Pro Trek watch and also has a white face which is a new feature for a Tough Solar model. Those who want an unobtrusive yet full-featured ABC sensor watch for outdoor activities, and those with smaller wrists such as women and young people may prefer the smaller size of the PRW-60.
Update: The PRW-60-2AJF and PRW-60-7AJF have a list price of ¥52,000 JPY and the PRW-60Y-1AJF has a list price of ¥54,000 JPY. The PRW-60 series is slated for a May 18, 2018 release in Japan. Outside of Japan it is only available in China and Europe.
Update 2: Casio is releasing the PRW-60YAE-1AJR in Japan in July 2018 which includes two bands: a silicone band and a carabiner attachment band to attach the watch to pack straps or clothing for hands-free viewing while climbing. List price is ¥57,000 JPY.
Update 3: The PRW-60-2A and PRW-60Y-1A are May 2019 releases in Asia.

Hello. When will the Protrek PRW-60 come out and where can I buy it?
Probably around summer time in Japan but it’s not yet known where else it will be released. We will update this page when we find out.
It is out in Japan now and looks like it will be Japan-only for now.
Great for down sizeing, the crown on bigger ones makes marks on the skin. Worldwide release is necessary!
Release it worldwide please!
Hello to G-Central. Do you plan to sell PRW-60Y-1AJF also in Europe. ..this watch looks great!
Only the PRW-60-2AER and PRW-60T-7AER are available in Europe.
Will you ever sell PRW-60Y-1AJF also in Europe?
I’m not sure. The PRW-60 series was announced at Baselworld 2018 but so far it is only available in Japan and China.
Which of the prg/prw include the tough movement
I believe all the analog PRW models have Tough Movement, and the PRG models do not. There is a useful comparison of Pro Trek features here.
Thanks G Central. The tough mvt is must and I have my eyes on the prw60eca-1ajr. But I like the face of the new prw50 models.i haven’t got myself a watch in a decade and this is one the hardest decisions. I love the Wenger 70373 and their other models with a compass, but this casio is another level.
