One of the great things about Casio is that at less than £20 there’s a chance to made it your own through some simple modding.
I’ve been wanting to mod my AE1200 for a while so whilst I had 30 mins to spare I decided to have a go.
All I used was a small screwdriver, a sharpie, spudger, some nail varnish remover and a cotton bud.
First thing I did was to remove the white text from the case above and below the display, with a cotton bud and nail varnish remover and it came off pretty simply.
I then had to take the watch apart to get at the front template with all of the text on. It’s just 4 screws holding the back on, don’t forget to keep the water seal safe when it comes off.
Use the spudger to take out the unit and the front plate will come out easily.
I tried nail varnish remover again on the text I wanted to get rid of but it didn’t work so I removed it with a sharpie.
After I was done I simply reversed the process and got it all back together.
I’m pretty pleased with my first mod on the AE1200.
You can see where it started off in my review.
