    Apparently neither does on MTPS110. I will be more than happy to be corrected.

    Casio released the MTD1079, 1080 and 1082 back in 2015-2016. These were very well made with 100m WR, rotating bezels, and LED illumination. They were worthy successors of the former Duro 200 series, even though not 200m WR.

    Unfortunately, since then Casio has set the bar even lower, they've been releasing only models with 50m WR and fixed bezel. That including the ones I noted in the link below and ones mentioned here in this thread.

    Wait a minute, are you saying that Casio is shipping them with factory bracelets now? Used to be resin strap only, and you have to buy your own bracelet.

    Not Casio, but some sellers preinstall the bracelet for the sale.

    You also can buy one and swap it yourself.

    How is the bracelet quality on the 106...is it a folded steel deal or what?

    Not sure about these aftermarket ones, but the factory bracelet from Pacparts is folded steel with hollow end links.

    I don't have the bracelet physically, but from the pics I think the above poster is right, folded stell sheets and hollow end-links.

    Something similar to Seiko's cheap bracelet.

    The MDV-1080 is boss on a polished engineer bracelet:

    Personally I think formed (“folded”) links are fine, if they’re done well. Machines links used to be found only on expensive watches, but ubiquitous CNC has made it possible to produce cheap machined links that rival the crappiness of the old despised cheap folded links.

    The EFA-120 has formed links and they’re great.
