I'll be honest - I didn't buy this watch because I needed one with an altimeter, barometer, compass etc. for all my frantic outdoor pursuits.
I like watches that are radio controlled and solar powered as it makes sense to me to have a watch that always tells the right time and adjusts itself for DST and never needs batteries changing. Watches that have both these facilities are fairly limited. Makes that I am aware of are Citizen, Casio and Junghans. I have tried a couple of the Junghans models which were nice but unfortunately marred by some quality issues, and the Citizen models are pretty expensive and have very cluttered faces (the Skyhawk models). And so this leaves Casio. And that's no bad thing as Casio make some good watches.
I already have a Casio G-Shock radio controlled Solar watch which is absolutely fine. It does what it should do perfectly and is tough enough to shrug off the occasional whacks against heavy objects that I accidentally subject it to. But I wanted another watch just for variety really. After much searching around I settled for the PRW-1300T. It is a good looking watch and it's titanium bracelet and metal casing give it a quality feel. The other thing that made it appeal to me is the large, clear and uncluttered face. So many watches these days have faces crammed full of dials and markings that make actually reading what the time is a bit of a chore. This watch has a beautifully clear face. And unlike a lot of the Pro Trek models it has a pretty slim case (slimmer than my G-Shock).
The vast array of functions it also possesses vary from useful (such as the stopwatch and countdown timer) to interesting diversions (altimeter, barometer etc.) The altimeter seems wildly erratic by the way.
So to summarise - this watch combines the total convenience of atomic timekeeping and solar, high build quality, good looks, really nice clear display, and a huge array of extra functions to keep you amused when you want them.
