So the postman came today with my watches. As I opened the package to inspect them, I noticed the AWG100R-1As all had resin bands instead of the composite bands that all of the online retailers show! I called Casio, and since they "no longer carry that model" they could not verify in an official photo that it should have came with the composite band (sounds like BS, but I was cordial to the lady)
I bought three of the same watch because they are groomsman gifts for my wedding next month. I thought it would be a better gift than a cheap engraved flask that would never get used, or worse some useless trinket that would get stuffed away. I was really looking for a bracelet, but I admit the watch is very comfortable and still looks good with the resin band. I was looking for a G that was analog, stylish, atomic/solar and didnt cost a fortune (around $100 per watch was my budget)
Should I hang onto them, or send them back in search of something else? I am siding towards keeping them, but what are your thoughts here?
