I definitely Don't buddy. I paid something around $498. This retails around $ 700, and now in Amazon its going for $465, and thats a steal in my opinion.

HammerHead, where did you pick up your Casio EFR series watch (in Goa?). I live just south of Goa (Karwar) and I am more comfortable picking this from a store rather than ordering online.

Yes they do, charges: [COLOR=#244061][COLOR=#000000]$39.95 for the first item and $19.95 the next.
The local customs and taxes are extra. Check on their site before you place the order.

I am in the US so shipping didnt cost a thing.

I picked it up from 'Just In Time' store here in Pune
Yeah buying Casio online is something I will never try though I'm a 'heavy' online buyer.

Panerai watches are famous for their leather bands, often the Panerai watch owners end up collecting watch bands to wear on the watch on different occasions. The same is a reason for Panerai ship it's watches with 1.4mm/1.6mm screw driver and pin pusher tools on the watch box.

I tried couple of bands with my Panerai and ended up using this black leather and deployment clasp. I hope you liked the Lowlight, No light and CFL light pictures.

The low light picture here shot with tiny pen torch(flash light) used to find keys in the bag. Look at the 2nd picture, next to the 3oclock position of the watch you can find the small little light source used to take this picture.

HI Donzerus ,

Congrats . I am also in line for this watch on Tech Enclave go and waiting for delivery from Gmano . I guess you got it from WUS forum as tech enclave order is still not fulfilled by HMT .

I trust you are using her with zulu straps .Could you post a Photo with zulu straps please. I have 3 HMT;s ( 2 pilots and a janta )and wish to buy zulu straps but not sure how they will look like.

I am more inclined towards canvas straps but they are bit pricey on ebay at 11 dollars . Can;t find them in any store in Delhi / NCR or Online .

Thank you.

But my watch isn't Pam 925, it is Pam 168 regatta chrono from 2003.

I just changed the steel and titanium bracelet to leather.

That's a great looking watch. If I may ask, how much did you pay for it? You can PM me if not comfortable to share here.

Buddy no worries, this is not a IP rights protected information. I paid around 490 or 495 USD. It retails for 700USD. You can but it in Amazon, they throw nice discounts particularly during X'Mas. Earlier I have posted a link of Amazon, why dont you check the current price? I am sure the discount level has gone up.
