As the current contents are unknown, this may lead to over excitement and fatigue once exposed so can't take any risks!!!!

                Ok, lad's, I've upgraded the plastic seiko z22 that came on my casio mqd for one of the rubber straps and grabbed the waffle for the 61. I've added a Casio and a Russian watch I think. Plus something else I'm trying to sort out over the weekend Click image for larger version

                    ...and not just any Casio too!

                    That is a AQ-600W from the 1980s/early-90s, extremely rare among the Casio "Arnie" watches. Arnold Schwarzenegger wore a black dial version in the movie Jingle All the Way. Here's are images borrowed from Biffo at WiM Import...






                    The white dial is even harder to find than the black version that Arnie wore.

                      Wow, Thanks Don the previous owner I purchased the 703s off sent it a long and didn't say a word. I wonder if it works??

                        Cheers, Artemis12 ...I know you appreciate these vintage Casio most. I won't say it is a commonly known watch. I would likely not know it had it not been that many years ago, I found an old beaten-up Casio Marine Gear AMW-320C discarded in the trash bin at my watchmaker's... I thought it looked quite good, nice and big at 45 mm ( https://i.postimg.cc/s2wWwLbD/Marine-Gear.jpg ). Found out from Internet search that it was a 1997 Casio "Arnie" (worn in True Lies). Told my watchmaker that if he had time to fix it up, I would put it on TradeMe and sell for him. He did, and I found a happy new owner in the end.

                      Thats a bit strange, I can't place a comment on my post

                      I definitely like a good end to a story Don the Aq-600w is a big watch at 45mm and uses a 22mm strap too. Fingers crossed it just requires a new battery, plus a strap of course

                        Yes, I hope you can get it running, Artemis12. I recommend taking to a watchmaker to fit a battery, so that way, he can give it a look at at the same time. At the last resort, Casio put this movement module (307) in a number of watches of the 80s, so could find a donor watch to get it going again.

                      Thanks Don for the great suggestion

                        Hi Lad's, since I haven't been able to make a meaningful contribution to the big bag. I have a bit of kwila left over from the house, I've made a rough prototype of a watch holder for the bed side cabinet. The whole thing will be kwila in the end and be double sided so a watch can be placed on each side. I can make one for everyone in the big bag group if anyone is interested????? just remember this is the rough prototype and will altered a bit or if you have any ideas or suggestions that would be greatly appreciated I almost forgot to add that it would have big bag of bullocks tour of 2020 written on it some how tooClick image for larger version  Name:	20200816_174235.jpg Views:	0 Size:	88.4 KB ID:	60897 Click image for larger version  Name:	20200816_174634.jpg Views:	0 Size:	94.2 KB ID:	60898
