I recently stumbled across the Lineage line of watches from Casio. I'm sort of looking for a quartz, analogue everyday watch. I have several automatic watches and several G Shocks and like them all but after breaking the movement in my Seiko SKX007 I've considered replacing it with an analog quartz. This watch would fit somewhere between the the G's and the autos and would get regularly worn in a variety of environments.
The Oceanus line is interesting to me for a lot of reasons but it's fairly expensive, ~$500ish, and its larger than I want at 42mm. I've also read that some models have proprietary lugs and strap changes are not as convenient.
I'm curious if anyone has long term experience with the Lineage watches from Casio, specifically the model I am interested in is the LIW T100TD
This model can be bought for ~250-$300. It has a Titanium case and bracelet, is smaller at ~39mm, Solar/Atomic, tough movement, standard 20mm lugs, 100m WR and looks nice, I think. I travel a bit and it checks a lot of boxes for me.
Some negatives, compared to the Oceanus, are that the Titanium isn't treated and purportedly scratches more easily and the glass is mineral vs. sapphire. These negatives aren't deal breakers they're just, well, negatives in my mind.
I'm not completely sure when these models were released or where they even fit in the Casio hierarchy. The ones available may be old stock or specific to a certain market, I just don't know.
I did find a review from 2013 that speaks favorably of this model but I'm hopeful someone has some more recent or longer term information/experience.
There is also a white dialed version of this watch and several Ana/digi models in the Lineage offering.
I may just stick with my current selection but this watch has at least gotten me curious to learn more about the Lineage line. Thanks in advance.
