    New Oceanus OCW-T1000 with independent hand control

    hour hand and minute hand are not connected for faster adjustment

    I suspect it works like how other mechanical watches work. Pull the crown all the way out to adjust the minute hand, than push it back by a level to adjust the hour hand and push it in another level to adjust the date.

    Just a rough idea.

    no, I did not mean the adjustment itself (and as I understand it is not mechanical connected to the hands anyway).

    The minute hand is driven independently, so you do not need 12 rotations in worst case to adjust it during switch modes or display another world time. But it still has only five motors in total and the 24 hour sub dial has two scales to display something within the range of 60 and of 24.

    edit: I think the hour hand and 24 hour hand are connected so that is why the stop watch can stop 120 minutes in total

    Analog fans rejoice! This is great news and I hope its a technology that will pass down to other Casio lines. Too bad this one has only a 2 hour STW and 60 min CDT. I guess they had to start somewhere...

    I guess it will pass down to other lines soon (Edifice and G-Shock and so on, like in the past).

    There may be a new MRG, too?

    But 1200 USD is a lot


    I think there are a lot of Citizen watches with crown and this is something new for the Oceanus line and we will see how it works...


    Further, since the second hand shows 1/20 seconds during stop mode, the minute hands shows seconds and the hour hands (including the 24 hour hand) are showing minutes. So, minute and hour hand should jump in bigger steps (1 second or 1 minute steps) during stop watch mode but how will they move in normal time keeping mode? Like before (minute hand every 10 seconds)? Or smoother?

    Questions, questions, we have to wait until the video review...

    An Oceanus with a crown. What is the world coming to?

    Thanks for being on top of Oceanus news, as always, Sibe.

    Casio has found a groove with the last couple rounds of Oceanus styling. It's neither Seiko nor Citizen. The bracelets still look a bit wrong and primitive. But feature-wise, the watches continue to make a strong case for themselves.

    Thanks for sharing, Sibe.

    It looks great and sound promising with separately controlled hour and minute hand. I also like the cleaner look of these sub dials, compared to previous models, which tends to be too cramped. Hopefully, there's a Giez on its way
