    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    This just in from Japan. Well, not exactly... When it arrived, I sent it to Patrick Marlett at the Take Time Youtube channel so he could do a live unboxing and a two part review. The first part is here:

    https://youtu.be/y4zcuHI8d0M

    The second part will be out on Friday. I just got the watch back last night and it's the first time on my wrist today. Love it so far. The thing that surprised me is that the applied indices that are anodized in shiny blue tend to sparkle, sending out tiny blue flashes as I move in the light. It's striking, but I'm not sure if it's too blingy. Will see how it grows on me.

    Nice to see a real Oceanus footprint on F17. These are beautiful watches that show off another side of Casio and what they're capable off. They can be bold and brutish, but refined and classy as well.

It was Grandfather's and when Father gave it to me he said I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire.... I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying to conquer it."

    These blue fireworks were the reason I shied away from this watch until I stumbled on a black bezel version, with silver indices — now my daily beater.
    Now, the usual model, for someone with blue eyes not hazel nor green, probably wears ok. I’ll dare say “brilliantly”

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    Got a couple of 22mm Erikas straps the other day (like harold-hans has been posting) to try on my Oceanus pieces. I like them but they are a tiny bit too big for any of mine which all have 21mm lugs. I was hoping 1mm extra woudn't be that noticeable but they do bunch up ever so slightly near the lugs. Now I either hold onto them, see if she'll exchange and wait another month to try 20mm, or see if anyone might be interested....

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    I prefer to use 18 mm over 20 mm nato on a watch with 19mm lug width. But that's just me some prefer to use wider strap. But I think 1mm is noticable. Why don't u hold on to this one a little longer and order 20mm to try and compare then u can keep one that you like and let another one go?

    On a watch with an odd lug width, I prefer using a strap that is 1mm wider rather than one that is 1mm narrower, because I don't like seeing the ends of the spring bars showing with the narrower strap.

    I have this issue with three of my four Citizens, which use a 23mm lug width. For two of the three, which are dive watches, I finally found some good 23mm NATO straps (Zuludiver 178). I had been using 24mm NATO straps, but with these the edges of the strap would slightly cover the inner edges of the lugs.

    Most likely I will try 20 because I like the look and feel overall of the material. The thing with these is they seem a little bigger than 22mm according to my measurements so perhaps a 20mm would follow suit and be just right.

    Stunning piece. Thanks for sharing. That bezel is killer!
