  1. On a bit of a whim one day last week I bought this off eBay having not seen one before. It's sort of like the MQ-24 but blue, I thought I'd like it and having not got a non-black one in the Casio collection I'm growing I figured I'd have it as it wasn't much of an expense. Main thing that I have against it is the depth of the face and the shadow it gives off and it's hardly a big thing but the buckle being black just doesn't seem right. Think I'll give it another day or so's wear and see how I get on before deciding to offer it a new home where it came from. Just wondered how long people have given watches before deciding they're not for them? At the same time I also bought another, some world time illuminator with an orange strap. That one hasn't made it here yet but I'm hoping to be more taken by it.
  2. Whenever I sell a watch on eBay I usually set the time to ten past ten, unless it covers the name or something I think would look better uncovered.
  3. The first I ever heard about this was actually quite recently, I usually wear a Casio W-86 to work but turned up wearing an old Timex M Cell I came across at a car boot only to get told the story about this from the chap next to me who I don't think was a big watch fan but told me on principal he wouldn't wear a Timex watch ever again because of what happened back in the day. He was also a Leeds United fan and went on to say how he couldn't bring himself to ever buy anything made by Sharp due to his hatred for Man Utd. Sadly he's moved on now and the stories I get from his replacement aren't as remember able, not that these ought to have been really but I thought I'd share them.
  4. Colour co-ordinated for the first photo posted
  5. My cooking probably doesn't quite stack up to his, but I'd not be too far behind him if I'd had a pound for every time that joke has been made..
  6. Having been a regular reader of this forum & chipping in with the odd comment here & there over the last year and a bit I thought I ought get around to saying hello, so here goes. I wouldn't say I collect watches but somehow I've accumulated just over a half dozen. Albeit none of them particularly valuable, with Casio or Swatch being my usual preference. I only stumbled across this forum doing a google search for some watch I was researching that I'd picked up at a car boot. I don't know what it was but a few of the bits I read must of caught my attention and I ended up coming back to have a read every so often. Anyway that's how I found my way here, I'll try get my first post on the WAYW today thread tomorrow. James
  7. Could you post a photo of the back? I have a few swatch spares. Is it just the circular silver cover you're after?
  8. I see a lot of comments about which watches to take on holiday.... http://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/crime/tourist-reeling-after-£1m-watch-is-swiped-off-wrist-by-pickpocket-in-ibiza/ar-AADscV0?ocid=ientp To be fair, if I had the money that'd still be a no for me.
  9. Usually on the face there will be a year following the initials AG. If you can see that search google for swatch and the year, eventually you should come across the model you have.
  10. This looks similar-ish I guess, found after quick google. Made by Macy's? https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-70s-macys-led-watch-touch-493585847
  11. I've been a long time reader of this forum & registered a while back just haven't got around to joining and saying hello yet. Then this thread caught my eye and I thought I'd break by duck and post as the Casio W-86 despite not being the dearest or classiest around is still one of my favourites and gets worn regularly. Practical for most things I need and pretty durable. https://www.argos.co.uk/product/2533609?cmpid=GS001&_$ja=tsid:59156|acid:444-797-0832|cid:596692980|agid:28594673725|tid:pla-182983873765|crid:95891136205|nw:g|rnd:921600291547133970|dvc:c|adp:1o2|mt:|loc:9046282&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIs83Sp6T64AIVmfdRCh2LxgmtEAQYAiABEgLZrPD_BwE The Seiko relaxer7 has mentioned has caught my interest though, think I might be trying to find one of those next.
