The Zhuolei bracelet was nicely on time to be put on the Casio DURO (you know, those with the marlin or swordfish on the dial and back, forgot to make a picture of the latter). But anyway, I'm very pleased, the watch is spotless, looks really like new! It is obvious they make some extra money by shipping, as they send it in a big envelope and bubble wrapped the watch inside, which usually does not count for US$ 18 in China, but I look at the total price (under 40 euro). Of course I HAVE to add a steel bracelet to it (but that is my own choice, the rubber band is certainly sufficient) That wasn't even worn, a tiny bit dirty, but that cleaned away quite nice with some household degreaser. There was hardly anything on the watch to clean! As said, when I put the new bracelet on the watch, I did not even found any band removing scratches.

OK, now I have it, nicely resized bracelet, but I'm thinking of brushing the bracelet a bit more or even totally. The inside lugs on the Casio are polished, the top side is brushed, sides are polished. Bracelet is polished both outside rows and the inside small row, I'm not sure how to brush it so that it's less shiny but still matches the polished inside of the lugs. It's really hard to make a picture of it, the brushed parts look light on the photo's, the polished parts look dark. Bezel sides are polished, just like the sides of the watch.

Color of the orange, is in real a bit more like polished copper, quite nice and attractive actually, size is very much to my liking, 43mm without the crown protectors, 46 including screw down (!) crown! Lume is quite nice when exposed to the light, bright hands and tiny dots for markers and bezel 'pip". Probably won't last long, like a Seiko Wink I really like the vintage case form, but all like new! This might become a vintage in the future, as many older Casio's turned out!

Anyway, here it is! (sorry for dust and lint)
