    An oldie, my very first Casio

    Casio MDA-100, module 1325.Just had my dinner, suddenly feel a little nostalgic and feel like taking it out for some close up shots and post it here :)

    This is my first ever Casio, bought it in 1994 when I was still a teenager. G-shocks were not common in my hometown and they were rather expensive. Still remember my elder brother gave me a ride to town to buy a watch after my old plasticky Alba watch died.

    I went around a few shops,too expensive or not to my likings,I wanted a watch with EL and alarm, and finally this caught my eye, tried it out, press the light button, it was LOVE!! and it's within my budget. I still remember that the original albeit ordinary looking black rubber strap, which I dislike, then saw another Casio with the hybrid strap, asked the shop owner, and he said yes he'll swap the hybrid strap to the MDA-100 without extra cost :)

    So here it is, after 16 years, it's still functioning fine, screw holes are stripped but Casio Singapore has recently service and tested it to be waterproof under pressure test :) moisture did get into it few years ago when the o ring dried out. The chronograph 1/100 word was originally in blue, but it faded, and I use black marker to write them again, looks better imo. It has uni directional bezel, but extremely tight to turn, it also has 5 alarm tones that you can choose from.

    This is the watch that got me into Casio :) Yes I know it's not a G and my wife think it's ugly, but it will always hold a special place in my heart. Maybe this watch has made me somewhat swing towards ana-digis,Hope you guys like the pics.

    That's far from ugly! Looks like a nice 'techy' watch to me.

    That's a cool watch and it doesn't look dated at all, unless I'm stuck in the '90's!

    There's no place like home.

    I like that the hands are moved the traditional way - with a crown that turns instead of buttons.

    Moving the hands 1 hour back on a G100 is a pain.
