I'm liking the idea of one of these. Black stainless mesh. About $80 delivered. Do you like?
- Square or round case?
- Green, orange, yellow or white hands and numbers?

How much are these suckers and what is the case made of?
They're about $80, and they are PVD-coated stainless or similar. You can google the model numbers in he subject line for details. Pretty sure that they are Asian market models. I'm curious about the lume?

This one looks interesting as well. A sort of bronze alloy coating or something. Curious as to what this looks like on the wrist. I don't like the raised, plasticky thingies above the numbers though.

Wrist:


Might just be the photo. I suspect that the cases and bands are all the same "black," but they warm up in reflected light. The image above looks really blown out.

Only downside for me personally is that I don't really want another quartz. For $40 more I can get a Citizen BM6400. Similar look, rated at 200M and no quartz battery issues (for a while, at least).

No problem...be sure to throw up a pic when you get it.
Done! Crappy cell phone pic. The bar holes on the lugs are tight to the case, but I got this thick Tsovet leather to fit.
I would imagine that a light or med weave NATO/ZULU would also look great, especially with this thinner case watch.

I'm moving towards a heavier case with this strap, so I think this Casio will probably find one of my other straps, maybe even a very light brown NATO with PVD hardware.

The Amazon reviews complain about the 22mm stock mesh band, so I think you're onto something ^here^ with the leather. A poor man's Panerai comes to mind, which I mean as a high compliment.

These watches don't seem to be very popular on the bay. Does anyone know a place where to get them for less than 50 dollars?? I love the orange hand version. But I'm also eyeing the one with the mat grey dial and white hands. I know Amazon has them but they don't ship watches to my country.
