Do visit Casio India Club - shop buy online Casio Watches in India. edifice, g-shock, protrek, outgear, sheen, beside, databank, Analog, Digital, chronographs, clocks, stopwatches at lowest prices.. Some discounts are also there in the offing.

I personally own a Casio G-Shock Mudman(Rs.5000) and a Casio Protrek PRG-130(Rs.18000). Its been 6 months and they do not seem to age....

Now I am looking to buy:
CASIO GA-100-1A4DR,

CASIO G-011AD-3BDR

and finally

CASIO PRG-500T-7DR (After this I don't think I will like any other watch).

Do go for Casio. They have very good analogue collection called Edifice also.

Happy Watching..!

Nice!! I have a Bumble Bee (GA-100A-9A) coming in myself! Can't wait.

On a side note, does anyone know where I can buy watch boxes in Bombay? Prefer leather \ pleather and one that can hold up to 8 to 10 watches. My current box is already overflowing!

Something like this is what I have in mind:

Well, don't know about watch boxes, but the cheapest and most suitable alternative would be the bangles box the ladies use. You can get them anywhere in many different shapes and sizes maybe even in leather..

Thanks Rohit, you've narrowed down on some great Casio watches! I would like to see these in flesh before making a final purchase.

@vcash - Very difficult to find watch cases in India. Check the following post for the pictures of 'Royal Image' watch box. Few of us bought this, and it is of decent quality.

Thanks for the information. Yes, my last box was purchased in the US. Can you let me know how much the one from Royal Image set you back? And how large is each individual holder - I need to accomodate dive watches up to 50mm.

Case costed around 1200 or 1300. Individual holder can easily accomodate dial size 50. Few of my watchs dials are 45+ mm, did not face any issue.

Couple more restoration of vintage watches :-) from my collection

FAVRE-LEUBA SEA CHIEF hand wound model, I really see a trend in the watches on those days. Many Swiss watch makers named their watches like Omega seamaster, Favre-leuba seachief, Rado seahorse, Rolex sea dweller, Tissot sea-touch, Breitling seawolf and so on. What is the connection to watches with SEA?

Almost forgotten piece. Great to see the Allwyn, I remember the pre-Timex days when Allwyn quartz with plastic and rubber made watches where one can change the dial to match the dress color and was a big hit. Cool stuff.

Zodiac is in killer look great one.

Titus Incabloc hand wound model, I picked up this watch after seeing similar dial/glass details with the Sandoz watch owned by our powertwin.

Really your seamaster looks great !!
About The Titus watch posted by trammway & my Sandoz:
One can see the dial holding inner ring to be in steel,coated brass& gold( in luxury watches)
In this particular Sandoz & Titus watches a glass ring with multiple cuts on the periphery of the glass ring with reflector coating, so as to spread the limited light on the dial at poor light conditions
Think both are circa '30s
