    I think this is for the Tough Solar models. The usual quartz GShock models are good for 3 years I think.

    Seiko also has a good number of Prospex line solar-powered watches.

    "anti-aerosol device".
    every establishment now has their version of such.

    i complained to mcdo, as the clear but un-flat barrier precludes me from reading the menu.
    after a week, they got rid of the plastic curtain and shifted to flat, clear celluloid-like barriers.
    nababasa namuli.
    apparently, hindi lang ako ang nag-complain.
    OT.

    my nephew-the-seaman:
    "unc, i destroyed three seikos the other year. this g-shock has been with me for a year now. it's great! we all wear it now."

    as an aside,
    i have four older casios.
    and for some reason, all of them run 4-5 minutes advance in a year.
    are these watches adjustable?

    while the rechargeable ctl 1616 battery of the (casio) solar watches has a very long life,
    eventually it will need replacement.
    googling, i was shocked at the price of the battery alone.

    para ka nang bumili ng regular quartz model whose battery you replace every 1-2-3 years.

    just like the seiko kinetics.
    the price of the run-down rechargeable battery is akin to the combined price of several regular watch batteries that equal the kinetic's in total longevity...

    i am wondering,
    to the tsikoteer,
    may we ask, much did casio charge you for replacing the rechargeable battery?

    youtube has videos, for those who want to DIY the battery replacement.

    thanks ulit bro... actually yung maintenance meds lang ang hanap ko kaso napadaan sa watch store ayun napabili ng di oras hahaha.
    hindi kaya yung rolex... yung display nila ay circa 8k BND ang minimum price.

    The thing is they don't accept walk-in customers as of the moment. You have to meet their personnel at the lobby of their building & pick up the watch afterwards. Quarantine precaution daw nila.

    Btw, i was referred there by time depot festival mall 3 months ago pa. [emoji87] naabutan ng lockdown ang foofoo. [emoji80]

    the things you own end up owning you
    Uy, anong year model yan? Meron na pala ulit lumabas na Riseman! Back in 1999 I got the yellow (like the Halls candy) version but I lost it one of the mountains in Bataan last 2001. Tried looking for another yellow pero wala akong makita. Any color wala din... madalas ko makita Frogman or the Mudman.

    Well, thatís a good watch. Ingat lang sa mga buttons kasi yan madalas unang nasisira, just like the other G-Shocks.

    they charged me for under 600 bucks for the whole shebang doc. the batt itself cost about P500 ++ and the rest were for the service fee and for the dash of silicone oil.

    diy batt replacement is pretty straightforward but casio says they have to factory waterproof it again (w/c is apparently a requirement of some sort), thus the silicone oil to recondition the seals.

    so iyong riseman bro iyong parang may prominent side extensions?

    as far as i can tell, 2010 release siya based on its serial number.

    not bad.
    i hope my seiko solar will cost me something similar, when its time comes.

What brand of watch do you wear? [Merged]
