    I think that the blue model is my favorite of the EF503s. Are those still available?

    Love the strap on the MDV106. I have the same watch, still with the factory strap. What a difference the aftermarket strap makes on this piece

    @LesserBlackDog that red and white of the Tintin model really adds some pop to the face of the Speedy. Any idea what year your watch is? Just curious.

    @mmgfarb Thanks for the kind words on the watch. I must confess after having looked for a long while and then finally pulling the trigger, I am very pleased with my watch, even more so now that I swapped out the original band for a leather one.

    I think the Tintin came out in 2013/2014. I bought mine new about a year and a half ago. Not sure if they're still in production but I think you can still find them on the grey market.

    Thanks. It is way more comfortable too. I also swapped the bezel insert for a planet ocean insert. Two easy changes that make the watch a lot better.

    Apparently I only save snaps of my Speedy, so just a quick elevator snap of my SD4k, which dominates my wrist time, especially in the hot, humid summer. On the rare occasion I start wondering if I should have gotten something else as my first big boy watch, a glance down at my wrist alleviates it quickly.

    It's definitely a looker although it is very hard to find. I got extremely lucky winning a bid on ebay for around $65 after shipping from China. The black is the easiest to find, white is harder and I would say the blue is a little bit harder to find than the white.

    Interesting! There are bezel inserts for Casio watches? I know about the huge modding community for Seiko watches, but I didn't realize that people were making parts for Casios as well.

    Good idea on the bezel insert. I may do the same. I saw a few on Amazon; do you happen to have a link or specifications on the one that you used?

    Thanks!
