I've been having way too much fun with the Casio GA-2100 series mods these days. How would you mod yours?

Hi Mark. I was supposed to buy 1 watch this year. I held out well for like 10 months. Then someone mentioned Catawiki on this forum, and 3 watches later, I'm checking myself back into rehab. Next year, I will buy ZERO watches.

Something very classy about the small second. The watch looks great!

Iโ€™ve been trying to get a small second for a while. Couldnโ€™t afford a more modern ones, so I opted for a vintage.

Dang... Take care of your body, or you'll go broke buying watches.

The watch auctions are a bit addicting.

commented on [Vintage Omega Seamaster] Just look at it! ยท

Where did you send it in for the service if you don't mind me asking?

I've been really getting into vintage watches these days and purchased like 3 in the last few months. =( I feel like I should service them.

Well, it got you out of having to buy a black and red watch, though.

There were a ton of Lions fans, which surprised me a little. I guess the Lions are leading the division, so the Lions fans were hoping for an easy win. It was very gratifying to see the Bears beat the Lions.

Should the hardware on a NATO strap match your watch case color?

I recently bought some cheap NATO straps (unironically from CNS) and didn't even think about the hardware matching the watch case color. Does this bother you? This would bother the heck out of me if t...

Casio GA2100 Mod - Less Royal Oak and more GMB2100

My previous mod was a "black out" mod from SKXMod. The quality was great, but I was embarrassed to wear it around. The new mod, from Barton Oak store...

Casioak mod (my first mod ever)

This is my first foray into the modding world of Casio GA-2100 (aka Casioak). I do think I bought the mod kit that is too on the nose to be a "Royal O...
