    Interesting Buckle?

    Just came across this and its something I've never seen on a G before



    Its from a dw-8600ms-8t fisherman.

    Is it something Casio used to do or was it a one off?? It looks to me like it would be a pain to use.

    Anyone else seen them around?

    These G-Lides have exactly the same arrangement and they are a bit of a pain but, lets face it, they aren't going to come undone in a hurry, so in some instances may be very useful.

    The only other time I have seen that buckle arrangement was on a swatch

    I remember it being pretty good though, was an extra strap keeper essentially.

    same here, seen it on Swatch but never on G but good to know they exist.

    I like that style. Very secure no doubt! Ideal to have on any watch while playing sports.

    The problem with this buckle is that you have to bend the strap quite a bit to get it through. The Fisherman is an old watch now, and I don't want to break my strap. Also the buckle is not attached by a pin, so it can't easily be removed. I don't know how I'd remove it without drilling or something. I really wish the watch had a normal buckle.

    I am with you on this, thus the fisherman does not get any wrist time. sigh...
