Just in case you’ve missed our previous post from few weeks earlier when we were talking about the best valued 200m diver’s watch that you can easily pick up for less than 50.00USD was the Casio Duro MDV106-1AV diver’s watch, commonly known as the “Marlin”.

Emails and comments were piling up as expected since we did mentioned in one of our previous posts that the Casio Duro MDV106-1AV “Marlin”, was able to fit with some of our New Seiko 5 Sports model custom fitted watch bands. Despite the fact that the Casio Duro MDV106-1AV diver’s watch costs less than 50.00USD, there is a commonly used “nick phrase” for the watch, which is “the cheap Casio quartz watch that Mr. Bill Gates” wears on a daily basis.

For those interested, Bill Gates current net value is estimated at about 100 billion USD dollars, give or take a couple billion dollars. Despite the watch costs less than 50.00USD, Casio is certainly enjoying the free publicity and marketing for the Casio Duro MDV106-1AV “Marlin”, being worn on a daily basis by one of the wealthiest man on the planet.

In response to fans and subscribers demands requesting for more photos of the Casio “Marlin” with our New Seiko 5 Sports model custom fitted watch bands, we went a little over our 50.00USD budget and decided to pick up two other Casio Duro MDV-106B-2AVCF (Blue) 56.25USD & MDV-106G-1AVCF (Black &Gold) 56.52USD on Amazon.

Other than the 22mm Super-J Louis 316L Stainless Steel Watch Bracelet for Seiko 5, Brushed V-Clasp SS221820B020-S5, which is just over 60.00USD, we wanted to categorize the selection of watch bands/straps by price for the Casio Duro product shoot.

We wanted to keep it at an affordable price and did not want to go overboard to suggest watch bands that costs nearly the same, or several times more than the watch itself during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

As mentioned before, the Casio Duro MDV106 is definitely worth picking up. For a watch that is made with such materials and specifications that’ll cost you roughly 50.00USD (Give or take), you certainly can’t find a better deal than this.

To spend about a hundred dollars give or take, you can pick up one of the three Casio Duro DMV106, along with one of our mesh bands, and still just have enough for a Nato strap. What’s really there to think about? Its perhaps the 100.00 USD you’ve ever spent, and you certainly would not feel guilty about it.
