Incoming: Old school Casio

OK, so it doesn't really scream exciting, but it's one of those watches that you just need to have in your collection. I saw it on the shortlist of 10 Ultimate wristwatches and I instantly knew I had to have it!
I dunno what it is about these retro watches, but lately, I've just been really drawn towards them. Anyway, without further adieu, I present to you the Casio A164WA-1

Un boxing:

The watch:

Interestingly, its made in Thailand, and not Japan, as I had thought.

Obligatory wrist shot

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the purchase and even though this watch may or may not get much wrist time in the future, it's gonna be a keeper! Besides, for around Rs 1500 ($33) shipped, you can't really complain!

Hi Bio,

Indeed, your Casio is one of the ultimate time telling devices a man needs to own. Congratulations and have fun wearing it.

Kindest regards from today's rain-clad

Thanks James! I just love how modest looking the watch really is. And of course, its incredibly accurate! :D

I just checked out your blog - great stuff! And I really like your old school Casio - very similar to mine, but I like the bracelet on yours better :)

Let me know if you'd like to do a link exchange on our blogs - I'd be happy to list yours on my Blogroll if you wouldn't mind putting mine on yours.
