Gah, which one to vote for, there's really nothing in it for me. Still, I'll have to decide.

    *Edit - I canvassed my 6yo son for his opinion as I couldn't decide. So our family vote is going to.... the Casio!
    had a few casios in the 90's with that sort of look, but bought some last year to fix but needed a new movement so flog them on so it's a bit hard to get one working at that price point the casio I bought for the comp for like 12 well there's one on the bay with four days to go at like 49 so

    Close one. I had to base my choice on condition of the watch, as either would be welcome in my home.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    It's a shame Photobucket effed us all around. Had the best pics on there. Clear, high Res and in focus to really show off the condition. Oh well

    yeah think it bugger stews chances a bit on the photo comp too with them crashing out the pb pics , as I said if anyone is using pb think they need to upload and click the store local box when doing it so the pics won't crash out for this comp last time I check it was only matts that had crashed so far , which he then sorted but others might go ?

    in fairness if you want to stick up some pics on the other thread I can swap them out that goes for both of you if you want

    was going to wait till the second level then get the winners to do a new pic if they wanted too but suppose can be done sooner if they want

    Tricky one, so used the 'Everything works as it should' of the Casio as a decider.

    I'm starting to feel like a curse for those I vote for... Have you tried popping the Seiko on a radiator and letting it get nice and warm before cycling the parts to see if a bit of warmth frees everything up?
