I read that Casio designed the Oceanus line to be sporty dress watches, using high grade materials and incorporating their most advanced technology, which explains how lightweight and thin most of these pieces are. Last March I picked up a near-mint, pre-owned OCW-G1000B-1AJF from a seller in Japan as a way of testing the waters since I was new to the line, and as you mentioned, there isn't much English-language material available about it. I work long hours in an office environment, and I've been very pleased with the fact that when I wear this one, I forget I have it on, which isn't something I can say about other high-end Casios like the MR-G and Pro Trek Manaslu, which I love equally but are built according to slightly different principles (namely shock resist and outdoor use).

    Titanium with DLC coating, sapphire crystal, tough solar, MB6 and GPS sync, this thing packs a punch in its build quality, technology and fit & finish. Like many other Oshis, the metallic bits on the dial (namely the hands and indices) are tinted in very subtle bluish-green highlights, so when the light bounces off the dial, it reflects off the AR-coating of the crystal and makes the whole dial glow in an aqua-colored resplendence. Very special, which is what you'd expect when you dish out the extra dough for pieces like this.

    In any case, I am now 110% sold on the line, so have pushed the button on my second Oshi, which is the OCW-G2000-1AJF that harald-hans and James142 already own. Should arrive from Japan later this week or early next. Looking forward to sharing photos and impressions on this thread.
    Your enthusiasm for the line played a part in my interest kubr1ck. I don't know if I should thank you or curse you lol. Good news about the G2000! Stunning.
    p.s. I like that little airplane on the G1000 :)

    Motion carried. Go ahead and have the honor of starting it, and I will add the 2 that I have.

    I knew you'd take things to the next level, man. I'm a Casio enthusiast, but I consider you one of the few real collectors on here, making a science out of it. Looking forward to your posts on this thread.

    p.s. that airplane denotes airplane mode, which is kind of hilarious.

    aqua-colored resplendence
    So good Kubrick, some serious prose there. My favorite aspect of the Oceanus line is the distinctive blue used in their design. Would love a OCW-P1000B one day...sigh...such a nice blue rotating bezel...

    I snuck in the back door with my scruffy pawnshop find, but there is a bit of blue in there. Currently trying to figure out a replacement band.

    OCW-M700TBJ
    Last model sold in NA, and AFAIK the only one with tide information.(edit: similar OCW-M7000 also has tide, plus tachymeter)

    This was the find of the year as far as I'm concerned. I hope you can locate a band for it because that dial is a beauty. I love busy dials that somehow don't look all that busy because they are so well designed and laid out.

    The current line-up of Oceanus timepieces: https://oceanus.casio.jp/collection/

    The site's in Japanese, but if you're on Chrome, just right-click and Google translate baby!

    It should be noted that there is an ocean of older pieces (see what I did there?) available on the pre-owned market that can be tracked down on eBay, many of them fascinating and exquisitely beautiful (as Ferg well knows!). Take for example this Oceanus Manta OCW-S1350PC-1AJR, limited to 300 pieces worldwide. It appears to have a mother of pearl plate in the center of the dial, which is simply stunning.

    I think these Oceanus models are superb. I really must invest in one of these.
