Casio MDV 106 Duro Problem

#1

Post by rich_in_the_lou » Tue May 03, 2022 4:42 pm

I had a fine old Casio Duro - all Black. GREAT WATCH but too monochrome for my taste so I bought a Pepsi bezel insert for it, Since I can be a fumble fingered jerk I lost the spring - so the bezel is no longer unidirectional. You say "SO WHAT" but it aggravates my OCD and I am already quite crazy enough without this helping! Any suggestions where I can get a new spring (bear in mind, I can get a whole new Duro from the 'zon for $45)

Thanks

If you're willing to Zelle or PayPal me $10 to cover postage, I'll send you my Duro I never wear. You can harvest it for whatever parts you need.

Interesting - I am interested in a Duro for a ten spot. No promises about weither I will use it for parts or whatever. Would you send me a pic? I assume that is a running watch and you don't wear it for reasons unknown Thanks

Yes, it runs and along the way it's had an acrylic crystal put in.

I'd send just the head, no strap.
