    Got 3 new watches. W215H

    Just got 3 new watches! but they are not G-Shocks.

    Casio India recently had a 2 day sale where they were giving 20% off watches. These watches normally retail for around $15.60 here but I got them for $12.55 each!!! Not sure how much they sell for in other countries but the Casio US site has it listed for $34.95.

    here they are sold under the Casio "Youth Series"

    The come in like a window box style packaging, so you can see the watch inside.

    took that pic on the last hole of the watch, was able to slide it on my wrist like a bracelet. lol so it will fit all wrists.

    It's a great summer watch! light and colourful.

    comparison with a 5600:

    The backlight is a nice orange one! so much better than that overused blue light on G-Shocks

    Kinda tempted to pick up a black one and do like a poor mans DGK mod on it with the straps from this purple one lol.

    Not sure when they were released but the box has an import date of October 2014.

    anyone else have any of these?

    Nice, I like them It seems similar to Gshock 5500 model from the side and it looks like they sit similar on the wrist?

    I like the all black with white letters, very 80's look I have to check local stores here. They are probably not as cheap, I'm sure around 30 or more, but I'll have to check.

    Took a few quick pics bro, it sits good on the wrist. very light.. a lot lighter than the 5600 and 5500. My 5500 is matte resin though so that feels a little better on wrist.

    not sure if this pic helps but here:

    I have them for a while, the black one since january last year, the blue one since june last year.
    But i think they came in the usual black cardboxes as the most lower range Casios here in europe.

    I bought them at german online sellers but they are available in many shops.

    Re: Got 3 new watches. W215H

    i have always wondered what if I hydro-mod those square casio (no Gshock), would they be as tough or tougher than Gshock when dealing with water ? or oil would be leaking all over ?

    just a thought, you don't have to try anything / LOLz
