Can you get this watch in stainless steel case, or titanium case with no plastic? I wlii eat thru a chrome plated brass or base metal case in about a year. My old stainless steel case and band digital that I had for 15 or 20 years, never deteriated. I must have a watch that will not be affected by acid skin. Please send me the modle numbers of all your digital watches that will not be affected by skin acid. W. P. Hutchison
In response to W.P. Hutchison's question, Casio makes a version of the Pathfinder with a titanium band and case. I've owned one for over three years and have had no problems with it what so ever. It's very durable, accurate and if you like big, bulky watches, stylish. Mine has a couple pieces of what appear to be a very hard plastic embedded on the inside of the watchband. I will goes weeks without taking it off and I've not noticed any wear or deterioration. I work out wearing it and it is unaffected by sweat, water or vibration. I do not know if this material will be effected by acidic skin. Even if it is I imagine it would last for years and you could always replace the band.
Good luck in your search.
I've had this watch for a couple years now and have been extremely satisfied with it. I wear it sea kayaking (salt water), rafting, fly fishing, golfing and many other outdoor activities. It has never failed to provide perfect time.
The other functions seem to work well also but quite honestly I don't use them much. It looks great, is easy to read at night and keeps great time.
It is by far the finest timepiece I have ever owned.
Well the band and under casing is titanium. The upper portion of the watch is made of a very hard composite that doesn't scratch or dent easy. If someone told me I was going to be dropped off in the middle ofno where, this s one of the items I would love to gave strapped on!!!
I have worn this watch everyday since I bought it in Feb 2009. It is now Sept 2011 and there is no sign of any deterioration. This watch is awesome, built tough, great battery life (the solar recharge is great, I am inside in the winter and there are no issues until Feb at the earliest and then I leave it in the winter sun for a couple hours and it lasts me until I get outside in the spring). I don't know how acidic my skin is, but the plastic casing and titanium band have no signs of wear and tear and absolutely no deterioration.
My watch is 3 years old. The band and case is made of titanium. Buttons are plastic. Suggest you go to Casio web site and check out all of their new watches. The should be able to answer your questions.
I looked into this and couldn't find any other option than plastic. Good luck in your search!
