Doing the Duro

I put off buying this watch for a long time but finally took the plunge and reviewed it on my channel.

Hey weedge. I hear you. If there are two cons to the watch they are the size and the strap it comes with. Unfortunately only one of those  can be changed.

I do enjoy mine with the Batman bezel (yesterday’s WRUW choice).  I hydro-modded it with silicone oil and added a date magnifier. It currently has a Barton Horween black leather racing strap (with blue stitching) and I also wear It with either a jubilee or oyster style bracelet from AliExpress.

Hi Johnniegold. Tell me about the silicon oil. What is that?  I’m not familiar with that.

Hi.  Plenty of vids on Youtube for “hydro mod Duro” explaining it much better than I could. 😀 But the use of the silicone oil definitely improves legibility (especially in the water) and supposedly increases water-resistance.  It‘s a fun mod.  Many also do the same thing to the Casio MRW-200 (I did too).
