Contemporary and sporty, the Casio Men's Pathfinder Atomic Solar Watch #PAW1100-1V was designed to compete with today's large display multifunction athletic watches. Packed with high-tech features, the Pathfinder comes with a built-in altimeter with a digital altitude tendency display graph (an ideal feature for mountaineering and alpine winter sports), a thermometer, and an atomic time keeping function (up to six times daily) that ensures your watch is always set to the right time. Don't forget that this watch isn't purely about functionality. Its bold digital dial, textured stainless steel bezel, and rugged resin band with traditional buckle clasp looks just as fitting at the cuff of your GORE-TEX winter parka or at the sleeve of your favorite button-down office shirt. The watch's reliable Japanese quartz movement is solar powered--which can accurately keep time up to five months without further exposure to light. Other technical features include five daily alarms, an LED light with Afterglow technology, a world clock with 29 time zones, a 1/100 second stopwatch that records split time, a calendar (pre-programmed until the year 2099), 12- and 24-hour formats, and water resistance to 330 feet (100 M).
With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.
Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.
