Let's get weird.

Ok, you digital degenerates! For your enjoyment/consternation today, I present you this:

This cheap, resin, digital Casio on a vintage style leather band. Specifically, the W93H-1AV.

It's not retro-cool, it's retro-dorky. It's not a metal mod and it's not chrome-plated. It is not iconic. It is not ironic. It's not even the other version of this watch, which might actually get away with it.

So Casio Council, devotees of the Covenant of Quartz, what is your judgement? Is this heresy, enlightenment, or just plain madness?

So cool! Here is my AL190W on a suede strap.

Glad to see I am not the only one that likes Casio on leather!

I actually like the look, but I am going this route just because you mentioned it.

Now that is a fun one! The big, visible solar panel really says late 70's/early 80's. And the "batteryless" text? Priceless. ♥👍🏽

The straps and back lights are the Achilles heels of Casio. I placed a brown leather on an AE1000 and a black leather on an CA-53. Makes all the difference.

Most of Casio's resin straps are all kinds of wrong. The one on the MQ-24 line is their most comfortable by far.

I've worn this a lot on an aftermarket silicone or NASA strap, but decided to dust it off and see if it can be dressed up a bit. 🤔
