Playing with aftermarket bezels again. Really gives the watch a completely different look. The black brings out the cream color the lume has taken on. Part of me still says why mess up a good thing!

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

Awesome vintage Casio! I have a couple from my childhood that I repurchased along the way (the originals sadly are long gone).

More straps from my recent WatchGecko haul.

I like it Guy, it’s a bit quirky. The hand and hour markers are classic fifties to me...

I'm inclined to agree Gary, just that I was hedging my bets last night as I wasn't sure and not in a position to check my records.

New addition just showed up today. A Casio AMW320C. I had one of these in the mid 80's (not 100% sure of the age of this one but it is in the ballpark). Sadly, that original is long gone. Picked this one up for just a few bucks. The hour hand is slightly misaligned but this purchase was 100% nostalgia and with the digital display it really doesn't matter. A lot of these older ones are really beat but this one is in pretty good shape considering.

Yes, running well. Keeps decent time for an old 'un, on the rare occasions I wear it.

We did have a small issue with the movement which you graciously sorted out. I just have to remember to have the confidence to be firm with the winding and it will run for 24-30 hours.
