On 25 March, Casio will launch a new outdoor PRO TREK watch, the PRW-61. It is their first watch model made from biomass plastic.
Biomass plastics use renewable organic-based materials, becoming a sought-after material to reduce environmental burden, such as cutting CO2 emissions.
The PRW-61 has a case, urethane band, and resin case back (back of the watch) made from biomass plastics that contain components extracted from castor seeds and corns.
Of course, Casio puts much focus on its practicality for outdoor use. The watch comes with a triple sensor that can measure direction, barometric pressure/altitude and temperature. It also includes a Multi-Band 6 for receiving radio signals from six stations worldwide and Tough Solar to keep various functions stable by solar recharging.
To improve visibility, the index dial has thicker digits to let users check the time, direction and other information instantly. And the band has a target guide in its centre to better show the direction indicated by the second hand.
