    Found a real bargain today

    I originally paid £104 for my inverse display M5610 back in July. Hoewever, I couldn't get over the illegibility of the screen and sold it on to a friend for £70.

    Then, this morning I was browsing in a second hand electronics store and found the other version (perhaps older) for just £25. It is in mint condition, even the strap. I don't think the chap had any idea about Casios because he was also selling an older, non radio and non solar Casio for £35 - probably what it is worth new. This is a huge bargain for me as I was considering buying a new M5610, I missed its features, and this one just needs a little cleaning of dust from the screen.

    I'm so happy to have this watch again as I like it and will use the time to correct my Raymond Weil Maestro which runs about half a minute slow a week.

    No - I looked and it was definitely a basic Casio, maybe 5 years old - might have had a moongraph.

    I can say its good if the negative display now is better than the one you sold before..but that dial is very nice. Very minimalist, it was inspired from the DW5600BB which is a black out piece but not solar though but the digits are very legible even if its a negative display.

    That's my first picture, the inverse display I originally bought.

    Not sure what's wrong with the pics - don't work on my android, either, but fine on my Chromebook. Will try and correct.
