>Still don't know why they didn't go with acrylic for the crystal, it's both cheaper and mre expedient.
A 10y lithium battery because god knows it's case size can likely accomodate it, and an acrylic instead of mineral would make it THE budget sports quartz non iso but still diver enough, motherfucking King of it's class and possibly a few levels above it. It's honestly that good.
I'm not sure why Casio didn't go with acrylic either, maybe it's a false perception of "downgrading", when in reality acrylic done right, could be a functional upgrade.
On a slight detour, I got the Corso sapphire bracelet sized at a jeweler\watch shop I go to. While waiting around I saw they had what appears to be a used\trade in\knicknack pawn cabinet. A few things popped out among the ho hum quartz dress watches.
>a seiko5, 95$
Honestly not a great price for a used Seiko5 that is not a Seiko5-Sports especially in today's world of online shopping. For about the same price or 10-15$ more, a brand new one can be had.
>quartz invicta "diver" on a silicone strap that is not hugely gaudy, not sure if it's from their older pro diver line, 80$
This one is just a rip off imo, especially when something like the Duro is available for cheaper and is much more proven.
>tissot seastar quartz, white dial with what appears to be a slight hairline cracks in them, 100 dollarydoos
That one was actually intriguing to me for some reason. I still kept a stranglehold on my shekels but it did intrigued me for a moment or two.
The shop also had a few Seiko Pray-sah-Gays at 750$, absolute full goy retail price and a some newer line seiko5 sporty faux divers. And some Prospex divers with the price not shown, which means you know it's fullgoy X 2 retail jackedup prices.
>then why do you go to them
Meh, they're the few watch shops I know that won't gouge figuratively or liPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
