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.
