This one for me for the next five weeks following a dog walking fall!!! Apart from all the usual inconvenience (I’m left handed) not being able to wear a watch is a real downer !!

Oh no! Sorry to hear about that. I hope the time passes quickly.

Holy hell! That sucks, hope you get better soon. I guess a dive extension will not quite wrap around? You could take the strap off something and double sided sticky tape it?

Casio A1000MCG-9EF
Casio%20A1000MCG-9EF.jpg

I took a gamble on this little trinket; a premium Casio A1000MCG-9EF which arrived yesterday afternoon.  It's marketed as a ladies watch, has a faux mother of pearl dial, a solid stainless steel case and matching milanese bracelet in an ion-plated gold finish described by Casio as "delicate pink"!

RRP is a hefty (for what it is) £135 but I found one sold via Amazon EU for under £90, listed not as a Casio, but as a "GC Gaveno Cavailia".  The latter seems to be a soft furnishings/bedding manufacturer!

Anyway, thankfully it's not too pink (more a Champagne colour) and the uprated materials (inc. mineral crystal) give it a much higher quality feel than the standard resin-cased Casios.  It's quite a bit larger than an F-91W too.  It retains the classic Casio DNA but has evolved into a more sophisticated, elegant, less geeky package.

For those of us with enough confidence in our masculinity to rock a Cartier with a sapphire cabochon crown, this is easily wearable without feeling in the least bit emasculated :laugh:

Yes , Pink is very fetching ,

Now that is ultra minimalist. I really like it. I'm guessing Bell & Ross, from the case?

I’m glad you like it because I built it :).  But you are quite right that the case is in the style of B&R. It  still has a proper automatic movement (accurate to a couple of seconds a day), stainless steel case and sapphire crystal. The dial is finished in ultra black 3.0 and the crystal has a strong red AR coating. I absolutely love it. Oh, it has a custom made leather strap too :)
