    Hey, stop reading the 1022 page user manual :crazy5vh: :crazy5vh:

    Clearer than mud :teethsmile: :teethsmile:

    Well, I couldn't stand listening to 17 mins of a guy that sounds like the big one in Penn and Teller, so that failed miserably after about 30 secs... :whistle:

    I printed out the 22 page user guide when I first bought the watch, and got as far as "Set the Time" - That's about all I need :laughing2dw:

    Interestingly, the first thing I had to do was change the City from Tokyo to London. Watch sync'd beautifully, took a couple of links out of the bracelet and is just so easy on the wrist. :thumbsup:

    That's exactly what I did when mine first arrived.  Oh, and tested the backlight, obviously.  Then downloaded the Casio App, and quickly realised that was useless, so I deleted it from my phone straight away :laughing2dw:

    Casio G-Shock GST-B200D-1AER and it's every bit as good as Davey P says it is :yahoo:

    See, I keep telling people I'm not just a pretty face - But nobody believes me... :whistle:

    It is a beauty mate, and I'm glad you like it.  Now go and have a look at the 22 page user guide (or alternatively, do what I do, and just use it to tell the time!) :laughing2dw:

    This has a fixed decor panel that fits directly to the fridge door via adjustable plates. The slider type are for when the outer door is hinged to the cabinet carcass, and in my experience are simpler to fit. 

    Ah, not seen that type, sorry.  But no doubt it will be covered by someone on YouTube, which seems to be the go-to place to find out almost everything these days :laughing2dw:

    After 26 years, our Neff integrated 'fridge has finally given up the ghost...it runs constantly and doesn't really keep things cold anymore...and the door seal has gone in one corner so the back constantly ices up. Gone for a Bosch model this time...being delivered by AO.com on Monday + free disposal of old one. A+ rated so should be more efficient to run than the old Neff. Only tricky bit will be fitting the decor panel to the front...over the years I fitted many of these in our rented properties at work, and they're always a nightmare to fit the plates to and get adjusted just right. Hopefully, there'll be a template to make marking out easy...many don't come with one.

    I always use AO for kitchen appliances, and I recommend them to everyone. I bought a replacement integrated fridge / freezer from them last year, to replace an existing one that wasn't working properly.  Fitting the outer doors to the appliance doors was really easy.  They come supplied with new tracks that slide both doors together as they open.  There will be printed instructions supplied, and also a video on the AO website shows how it's done :thumbsup:

    Something a bit different for today

    OMG, that is the first decent watch I bought when I started working in Germany after leaving college in the late 1970's or early 80's.  I suddenly had a load of money coming in, and I remember seeing that in a jeweller's window and thought "oh yes, that looks the bees knees, I've got to have it!".  In those days it cost the equivalent of £100, and I thought I was Billy Big-Balls at the time :laughing2dw:

    Have a look at the eqb500. Theyre fun. Had one a bit back. You can synch them with your phone and alter the time to local time when you get off the plane. Thats if you ever get on a plane again. Bargains arent they. 

    Mate, I've already bought 4 Casio Edifices and 1 G-Shock in the past couple of months, so just about the last thing I need is another one...! :laughing2dw:

    Nice one Dave, you really can’t go wrong with these and the destiny and value for money its a no brainer :thumbs_up:

    im guessing that you need to flip some now :whistle:

    Yes mate, it's a great watch, and for what I paid it was indeed an absolute no-brainer, even though I didn't "need" another one :laughing2dw:

    I have been considering slimming down the collection, but I just haven't got round to it. I don't really need to balance the books, so I haven't got much incentive to flip them. I've built up a decent collection now, but most are just sitting on a shelf unworn, which seems a bit pointless.  I might go mad one day and have a massive sale to make some room.  As always, it's much easier buying them than letting go and selling some...
