    $173 for shipping? $30-ish is common for EMS from Japan, maybe they are adding on insurance or something?

    well, even with insurance and etc, $100 would be max. From the same seller, $128 shipping for a $428 S100.

    Do anyone of us know any discount watch sellers in Osaka or Tokyo? I am planning to go there this October. My sister just visited a watch seller in Osaka (dont remember the name), they sell a G2000G for 235000JPY above MSRP of 230000JPY. Fcking crazy.

Damn, I guess I will not never get an Oceanus. Sometimes I really hate those JDM watch sellers, they tend to jack up the price ridiculously. They either cover the cost by raising the price up or post a ridiculous shipping fee, $173 for a G2000 or G1200.
    i really dont know how do their business survive if they jack up the price like that, inventory will just stay there. How do they make profit to maintain the business?

    I have a thing for green on a watch dial. I went out of my way to snag the old MRG 121TS, MRG 130TR, and MRG 210T Jazzy edition because I'm drawn to their green dials.
    Fast forward to Oceanus. I got the OCW T410TD-1 previously and I love it's anadigi design, and I knew from research that they made a -3 version with green highlights, but I never saw one at auction before and wasn't sure I ever would. Until today! Needless to say I jumped on it. Looking forward to this one. Actually might look nice on a strap with green stitching too. Some random internet pics:

    Beautiful watch kubr1ck! Since it's designated with a "G" in the model number, I assume that it's a GPS watch? The airplane mode indicator implies that it is.

    Good guess, kevster. MB6 + Bluetooth + GPS. A bit overkill, but still cool.

    "When the shadow of the sash appeared in the curtains it was between seven and eight o'clock and then I was in time again, hearing the watch. 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."
    --William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury (1929)

    Nice find! I do have a foible for green, too.
    It’s even strange that the Oshi-ansu range now limits itself to steel blue shades. The Oceans can paint themselves green, teal... A menacing purplish slate, if seen from my window today. I’d buy a greenish Oshi three-hander any time.

    Here you go. I knew I'd seen some somewhere recently!OCW-G1100-1A2JF on the left and OCW-S3400E-1AJF on the right (limited to 500 apparently).

    S100 fans out there. I think the S100-1 is the most common/popular but what do you think of the other models? I like them all pretty much except the roman numeral version.

    One of these two. The black bezel one is not that jet black in reality; more anthracite, smokey, and the dial same — very dark grey, not bluish at all. Imho, it blends in with the grey titanium. I say this because it’s on my wrist, as the daily beater. Its only blue details are the sapphire rim, and the Oshi swoosh wave. So it wears more neutral, at ease with any dress colour.
