  1. A year older today so it seemed fitting to wear one of the old Swatch birth year watches I've got.
  2. This is the only mention of a EFV-110D I can see on the forum, I've been looking at one of these since the weekend and wondered if anyone else had one/any feedback on them?
  3. I only have about 7-8 watches & tend to rotate between a particular 2 most days. There's a couple that mean things to me for various reasons and I wear on the right occasions. Then I've got a two birth year, 1986 swatches that I really like but rarely wear.
  4. Today's arrival & the latest Casio to join the collection. Model: SWC-02 - World Cup USA 94 edition. Straight from the bay as spares & repair for £6.98, just needed a new battery, clean and looks as good as new.
  5. Whilst having a browse on ebay to see if any Casio's had appeared I've came across this delight, I guess a kid has probably done it out of boredom but surely it can't get a bid.
  6. If you like bike riding, I've just finished Mike Carter's: One man & his bike, detailing his journey around the coast of Britain & really enjoyed it.
  7. I would quite like to get a Skagen watch I'd wear. I've bought three to date & sold on two of them. The one I've kept I really like but is 42mm and when I wear it I see something chunky that just doesn't do it for me.
  8. Got to say I like this, in terms of watches I tend to go for the 'less is more' look.
  9. I bought the strap fitted to the Zeon I posted on here a while back from these guys on ebay, like you I was impressed with the service & delivery.
  10. This is the latest Casio I've came across, it's quite nice looking and I'd probably wear if the crystal was in better shape. I wondered if anyone knew if I'd have much chance of getting a replacement from somewhere or if a local watch repairer would have much joy with it?
  11. Think I've got one of these somewhere at home, hasn't seen light of day for a few years though.
  12. One of these on eBay now as spares/repair, looks to be missing a crown but cheap enough for other spares if needed: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Casio-MW302-Spares-Repair/124201631201?hash=item1ceafe7de1:g:q8gAAOSwebVersfv
  13. tick-tock-tittle-tattle - I think you're right about the prices being higher than normal on ebay. I only really collect Casio's and look out for job lots with them in but some are making what I perceive at least as daft money compared to this time 6 months ago. Saying that I've just picked up this lot over the last weekend for a little over £20 just because there's one I wanted & haven't seen before and thought it'd be a good addition to my collection. It also looks like I'm going to have a few MQ-24's spare, so providing at least one works & when the raffle section is back open I'll offer one away to a new home on here for free. My interest in watches isn't quite the same as some but I have found a few things on this forum very helpful so I think it's about time I give something back to say thanks.
  14. I've had this clock below for a while but recently put a battery in & it's always gaining time. Over the last week it's gained about 15/16 minutes. Inside the back is there is a scale that reads: 1 SCALE 5 SEC. Above this there's - & + symbols, so I'm guessing I need to turn it clock wise a bit but unsure how much or if that's even the right thing I should be doing. Any advise/help would be appreciated. It'd be nice to get this working closer to the correct time.
  15. I once bought a mystery Swatch from a sale at one of their outlets when I was away on holiday. I was buying one anyway and it was a decent deal, but like your recent arrival mine ended up on the same website shortly after I'd got home.
  16. Each to their own and all but I'd not be wearing that if I could afford it, I think the general shape of it is what puts me off as much as anything.
  17. I think this is probably more of a jewellery piece than a watch. Similar to what another poster put in another thread last week about random dislikes for certain brands, this one would fall in there for me.
  18. Oh right, the one I was outbid on was a Rotary. Think I'll leave this on the back burner for now then, I have my eye on another casio in any case.
  19. What was it that put you off the skeleton watch? I don't own one but got outbid recently on a cheap one on ebay that I was interested to see what it'd look like closer up but made more than my curiosity was willing to pay.
  20. Yesterday saw the arrival of another Casio for me, W-59 becomes the newest member of my collection.
  21. I like that, got yourself a nice one for the collection.
  22. I like a Casio maybe more than the next person but wouldn't consider entertaining this one.
  23. Got to agree, I think it looks better now after your mod.
  24. I usually wear a W-86 daily and over the last 10 years I bet I've got through three. Mine has always snapped where the buckle fastens as if they hole it goes through must've worn away. For what they cost though I just buy a new one and someone is usually willing to give me half the cost back on ebay for broken one as spares.
