If you read the product page description, it says the case is resin.

It's resin. I have it. Holds up pretty well tho. But it's fifteen quid.

Your right, just did the tooth scratch test, Thought it was metal all this time.

The Casio Royale! Scorching price! forums.watchuseek.com/f71…tml

I mentioned the different colours of this AE-1200, in an older thread about the AE-1300hotukdeals.com/com…272 (had to copy/paste as I can't seem to direct-quote):

If anyone's curious, here's the AE-1200 (different watch, this Deal is for the AE-1300) discussed (punnily known as the "Casio Royale" - as it's supposedly reminiscent of the Octopussy/Seiko G757 James Bond wore) *link already mentioned above* Lots of chatter about modding both the 1200 and 1300 Casios on Watchuseek. This AE-1200 "Casio Royale" comes with a resin (cheapest option) or stainless steel strap and is £10+ more expensive.

The AE-1200 (Stainless Strap) looks like this:32446510-f3F1J.jpgThe Octopussy Seiko G757: 32446510-t9Lc3.jpgAmazon listing for the Casio AE-1200 (Stainless or Resin straps): amazon.co.uk/Cas…IWI
Edit: Actually, I like the Gold/Green version (AE-1200WH-1BV) of this AE-1200 (is it really Gold or just the Illuminator backlight?), (out of stock on Amazon, d'oh amazon.co.uk/Cas…H2E ): 32446510-UGaIE.jpg Not so keen on this Olive Green/nylon strap AE1200WHB, though:32446510-gNU3r.jpgAlso the Casio AE-1200WHB-1B: 32446510-MXIVq.jpg

Fantastic - the second thing I have ordered this morning. I don't think I need another watch to add my collection of 12 already but there we go! Cannot beat a bit of a classic design!

my order has just been cancelled by Argos........................... not happy

ordered, thanks superpanda...looking forward to modding

It’s a deal, it’s a steal, it’s sale of the 🤬ing century, in fact 🤬 it nick, i’ll Buy one! Hot!

Ordered thanks

I've got a similar (more basic) version of this and it's still going strong on the original battery after about 5 years. This looks like a bargain at that price!

I think Argos' website is a bit buggy in the middle of the night (insomniac here) - I couldn't reserve at my local store circa 2am (got emails telling me they couldn't process the reservation) but it worked now, same location.

No sign of that £5 off voucher code others are getting, bah...I'd consider one for myself as I love kitschy/collectable watches but the face might be too big for my toddler wrists.

2am isn't the middle of the night is it? Sometimes I don't go to bed until 2.30.

Just sayin' cos I've had experience of the Argos website behaving erratically/similarly in the wee small hours before, but it's not uncommon for sites to behave that way at that hour.

No it's the start of the morning

I paid £16 from Amazon 2 years ago... DAMN IT! I knew I should have waited!

I have just picked it up and it is really good but two things.... I cannot for the life of me change the time?!?!?! Even following the instructions!

Secondly, it is too big, how easy is it to remove links?

Doowit tell t'time better than me Peppa Pig £9.99 watch? Duh blue one.

Just a turn of phrase...I know the difference between am and pm Turns out the reservation I made later on today got cancelled as well. Weird. Usually it happens in the wee small hours with Argos..."there's been a problem with your reservation(s). The item(s) listed below have been cancelled."

That's very strange, did you get it working now? Thinking about buying it myself but I have no idea why

It seems to be the local stores (I'm in Glasgow) that say "collect in 4 days" that provoke the cancellation email/text, the one that had immediate stock made a reservation - but it's miles away and I can't pick it up for a few days, so I'll have to keep reserving till I can get there.

Hopefully the one down the road will work, trying a third time! You know if a reservation has went through right away as you get an instant text message - unfortunately my phone decided to die today - so I'll have to wait for the email.

Edit: Darn, another cancellation email (Stockwell Street, Glasgow).

I have managed to remove the links in mine. It is a relatively simple job but all the links fell out so I was left with something that looked like a pocket watch but managed to rebuild it and I am wearing it today!
