New(ish) in - Part 3 of 5

Recommended Posts

Next in was my birthday/beach holiday watch - a Casio MDV 106 "Duro".

This watch is famous for being fantastic value for money. You used to be able to get one for about £40 but since it has been discontinued the eBay price is generally £75-100. So when a brand new one came up on Amazon for £59, I immediately spent my birthday allowance (well in advance).

I am very impressed by the look and feel of this watch. If it didn't have Casio on the dial I would have guessed that it cost a lot more. It's about 42mm wide excluding the unsigned crown.

The strap is fine but the buckle isn't signed either. The dial and case back feature a marlin and it's rated to 200m.

I wore it constantly for 10 days in hot and humid Spain and it was very comfortable. Highly recommended, if you can get hook one.

And another nice one for the collection. A good mix and variety with 3 of your 5 new additions so far. :thumbsup:

I got a similar one recently as well, my first Casio since (a digital one) back in the 80s, I got the MDV-100D-1AJF from Japan, like you find it cracking quality for the money.

Have seen these from time to time and always liked them, as you mention look more expensive than what they were and great value, can pay a lot more for watches not that much better to be honest!
