    Casio Oceanus

    Hi Guys,
    I'm thinking of treating myself to the Casio Oceanus OCW-S1050J-1AJF.
    Does anyone know if this has the tough movement??
    It does not say so on the face, however, i've seen it being advertised as having it.
    If not, is the OCW-S1200-1AJF the newer version of that model, WITH the tough movement??
    I'm getting confused!
    Thanks,
    Ade

    Re: Casio Oceanus

    it is an older model and has no Tough Movement and was limited and could be sold out already

    the current line up in production ???????-?OCEANUS | ?????

    and here you can get an idea what could be sold out (at least at this shop)

    edit: and yes, the OCW-S1200-1AJF has Tough Movement and it is newer and has a 24 hour stop watch instead of 60 minutes and is Multiband 6 instead 5

    Sorry if this sounds silly but started looking into the Oceanus range, what is the "Tough Movement" ? Stronger than the previous one? Apparently it adds a longer chrono range.

    I just Googled 'casio tough movement explanation' and the first hit has an OK, if short, description.

    Tough Movement is a relatively new feature Casio has been trickling down its line of analog watches. The feature uses an LED to read and compare against the internal time the position of the hands, once every hour. If a hand has become ajar, it is automatically aligned at 55 minutes past the hour.

    I think, and i could be wrong, that it ensures the hands hit the minute and
    hour markers correctly.
    If this is right, it's a great idea.
    There is nothing worse than the hands not aligning up correctly.
    It makes me feel as though little care has been made setting up and adjusting the watch.

    Re: Casio Oceanus

    The main purpose of the tough movement is to recorrect the placement of the hands should they become misaligned during a violent shock.

    For example, if you hit your watch so hard in a way that at 12:00, the hour hand might be at the 3 minute after position even though the minute hand would be at the 12:00 marker.

    Re: Casio Oceanus

    I guess the alignment of the hands must be correct from the beginning or it never will because the hands cannot "move" without the cogwheels or something seriously is wrong

    Only big impacts could do something to the hands and the underlying cogwheels.

    That's right. The hand alignment feature won't correct those 'doesn't hit the markers' issues.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    The hands can slip on the pinions. They are probably just friction fit so they certainly can move without the gears being affected.

    It's just like the problem people have with mechanical chronographs when the chrono hand doesn't reset to zero. It's because the hand has slipped not because a gear has moved.

    Re: Casio Oceanus

    Sorry to revive an old thread. Also since these are actually digital watches with analog faces controlled with step motors, digital glitches can occur from all sort of weird sources causing magnetic or static inferences (monitor, tv, computer, laptop, etc.)... Once I've had a Seiko 6m15 (another digital watch with an analog face) behaving all weird which got fixed once I opened, took out the crown, the movement and put it all back together. I guess I just grounded some static electricity along the way...
