    Sea-Pathfinders

    Hi guys.
    These don't get posted here much, more often are their cousins the Protreks. Introducing the Sea-Pathfinders:

    Both were flea-market finds, with the SPF-40 acquired about a week ago. It looked in good physical condition but wasn't working. The seller had said that the batteries (yes, it's powered by four SR927SW batteries) were dead. Brought it to the Casio service center but they said the module was defective. I collected the watch a few days ago. All in all the cost of the watch plus the repairs still added to about half of what the watch would cost retail. I thought it was a good deal. Here's what it looks like on the wrist:

    The SPF-70S was obtained more than a year ago but I had foolishly sold it away to a friend. A couple of months back he willingly traded it back to me for a Protrek so it was back in my hands again
    It's quite a different beast from the SPF-40 being solar-powered instead. Here's the beast on my wrist:

    Functions differ for both watches.
    The SPF-40 has a yacht-timer, moon/tide-graph, 5 alarms as well as a temp/barometer and compass.
    The SPF-70S has a count-down timer, 5 alarms, stopwatch, barometer, compass and depth meter.
    Both watches have racheted bi-directional bezels.
    Another look of both monsters together:

    This makes 3 the total no. of SeaPathfinders I have, the other being the much smaller sibling, the SPS-201:

    which does not have the compass, barometer or depth meter functions.

    Thanks Lexvil for sharing the pic of your SPF-100S, it's a real beaut!
    It seems to have more in common with the older DEPs than the current Sea-Pathfinders:

    my old DEP-510.
    We can see where the family resemblance lies

    Hi there!
    I would probably say that it's the SPF-70. There's a bit of mystery it seems to me, that Casio discontinued this model. I''ve not heard of any issues with the solar charging or anything else for that matter. Currently what's available in the local shops would be the SPF-40, the ana-digi SPF-60, and perhaps the SPF-100 in a couple of local on-line shops.

    I only have one -- the atomic/solar SPW-1000-2V:



    Fittingly, the sleeve in this shot is from a Yankee jacket -- the Yanks just won their 27th (!!!) World Series Championship.......
