If this is true, then why does every other pathfinder model have the correct internal bezel labeling, even with other rotating bezels??Thank you for contacting Casio America. This is an intentional design. The watch
has a rotating bezel, so you could rotate the bezel until the N on the bezel
lines up with the magnetic north pointer on the LCD screen. You would then read
the degrees on the numeric markings in the inner ring (which does not rotate).
It sounds like they think you're just asking why they have markings going anti-clockwise, and not why they're anti-clockwise when they're usually clockwise. Either that or they're fielding the question.I just recieved a reply from casio;

thats what i also thought, 'cause all my directional compasses and all i've ever seen follow your comments.It still doesn't seem to explain why the markings go clockwise on other Protreks/Pathfinders. They certainly go clockwise (and don't move) on the PRG-80. Are there any other compass watches where they're marked anti clockwise? Does anyone who uses them prefer them that way? :think:
It's because the digital read out directly corresponds to the pointer. In your picture the digital read out is 330NNW and pointer also pointed at 330 which is also known as N30W (360-330).O.K, it is early, so forgive me, but I just got this watch last night and I don't remember a compass having 0 degrees at north and going up in increments counterclockwise. I'm talking about the internal bezel here...
what's the deal...
What puzzles me is, why the markings are different on every other Protrek I've seen. As you can see, on the PRG-80 and PAW-1500 they go clockwise, and on the PAW-1300 they go both ways. :-sIt's because the digital resd out directly corresponds to the marker. in your picture the digital read out is 330 and marker also pointed at 330 which is otherwise indicated N30E (360-330).
