After seeing Dick Jagger's impressive collection of non G-Shock Casios in another thread, I was wondering about how many Affordables members have a collection of Casio's less high profile but high value watches. This includes Edifice, Sports, Pathfinder/Protrek, Waveceptor, Classic, Dress, Databank and plain old drugstore Casios.

Here's some of mine, Sports models:







Forester (lousy pic but great watch for $20):



An old chrono beater I've had for 15+ years:


Pathfinders:





Post 'em up!

Great watches Griff. I just got this MDV-102 for <$50. What a great value!!! Well built, beautiful, keeps perfect time. Lume is OK but the twin LED back lights are blinding. I love it. Also grabbed a dozen of these (+1 for me) AL180 alarm chronos for peanuts. Used as party favors for a kid's birthday. Only downside is no back light (and I had to charge and set them before the party :-d) but the kids loved them.

I love Casio! Most Gs are too big for me though. My only two Casios are both solar-atomic, so I won't have to change batteries: Waveceptor and an older model Oceanus. I love how the Oceanus hands move smoothly and precisely into position when it wakes up into daylight, like it's happy to see me and ready to serve.

I forgot about the Oceanus, great looking watches! G-Shocks are cool too, I got a couple ;-) but we know there's lots of G's on here. Sometimes I think G's get all the attention while they are only one segment of Casio's large watch line. Every time I'm in the drugstore I marvel at their ability to put out so many models at so many price points. Sort of the 'everyman's' watch, the way Timex has been for a long time.

If the only Casio you have is a G, post it up too, here's mine:



The GW-1500 started it for me for G-Shocks, I bought it to "set all my other watches" to, yeah right, that's what I kept saying :-d

Next was the GW-9200 Riseman:



Which I loved, but then saw these and I had to get one:



And after reading everything about them and drooling over the whole GW-200 series, my MIRB Frog:



I had an atomic Frog but sold it, it was just a big too large for me, and that's saying a lot after wearing Suunto's and my PAG-80T!

I've only got the one Casio, a Waveceptor that looks very much like @Skywatch's, but on a bracelet...and a bit...um...older. I've had mine for nine years or so.

I think I've only had four Casio's in my lifetime, because they last so darn long. I had one from 6th grade to...um...junior year of high school. The next fell and shattered the glass after only a year. The third went from senior year of high school until my mid twenties, and I don't think it died...I think I just wanted something different-looking. Now this one's showing no signs of quitting...

I'm a big Casio fan. In addition to three G-Shocks I have a Wave Ceptor and an Oceanus.
Russ, when I see those two Casios on the daily wrist threads, I laugh a bit, because they are both the prettier versions of the two that I have. Great minds might think alike, but I might like your finds better than my finds! :)
