I also noticed it's a numbered edition which isn't very common among Oceanus (or Casio in general). The number is engraved on the caseback. 2006 were made for the World cup in that year. It's a fun piece, and $111 for a numbered titanium sapphire Oceanus? No brainer for me.
    Here are some internet pics, I'll post again later in the month when I receive it.

    Man, this looks amazing. I prefer Arabic numerals on my watches - that is why I like the PRW-6600 so much, among else - and agee that they are quite rare in the Casio lineup. This one is tastefully done. The very recent Citizen CC3067 is suspiciously similar, guess where they got the inspiration...

    I especially like the little digital window, makes for much better use of chronograph, world time features.

    You're in luck, there are other non-limited versions of this model with Arabic numerals, and they might be easier to locate than the World Cup model. Google OCW-500DE and/or OCW-500LE.

    P1000 on Ocean blue strap. Waiting on an Erika's strap, it's been over 2 weeks now with no updates though.

    Almost a month in, the OCW-G2000-1AJF is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Just a beautiful dial that is low-key but surprises you in different lighting conditions (like all Oceanus pieces, really). Supremely comfortable on the wrist, not too large, low profile, stunning fit & finish. I also love that it's packed with technology (tough solar, MB6, Bluetooth, GPS) but you couldn't tell from looking at it. Not a cheap watch but worth every penny.

    "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)

    Wow that looks really nice, kind of makes me want to get a strap for mine as well. Where did you get it? Can you post more pics?

    It's an Ocean Blue Cordura from Clockwork Synergy. They have lighter and darker blue colors but I thought this one matched the Oceanus blue the best. It's tough because the blue shade on the watch varies depending on the light. Nice comfortable soft leather backing. Too dark for good pics at the moment but here's a quick one:
