Casio f91w... sanded down

My Casio f91w was absolutely battered and covered in scratches, so I thought why not - let's give it a sand. A few hours of sandpaper noodling later, and I reckon it looks pretty cool. Matte gold, with tiny gold highlights.

Looks good.

Almost as good as a battered and scratched warrior watch.

You re the first dude i (somehow) know who s sticking time and money into a watch that the rest of the world would dump if it s beaten up and just buy a new one馃憤

Haha, it feels fitting with the f91w's character. Its ridiculously low price gives you the freedom to experiment a little. And if I ballsed it up, oh well.

Looks pretty good in my opinion and your extending the life of a minor classic so what's not to like!

That watch literally looks nude. Not bad, but I want to avert my eyes.

I thought it was a brand new watch in a color I hadn't seen before. Looks great!

So this was originally metallic paint/plating? Or is their gold just a sort of sparkly molded plastic? I do recall someone else here pointing out that apparently all F-91W models have the color molded all the way through so there is no nonsense with scratches revealing some putty-colored base underneath.

So it was originally sparkly/glossy gold, with a slightly lighter colour (pictured) underneath. So with scratches, you could see the colour difference

Different, I like it馃憤馃徏
