    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    I have a question about current Oceanus models, figured I'd ask here without starting a new thread:

    Is there a current model with backlight? Looking to add a daily wear watch of titanium, DLC coating, and loads of tech, preferably hybrid timekeeping. There are several Oceanus models that fit the description (G1000, G1200, G2000, etc.) and I absolutely love their looks, but none of them appear to have a backlight. I missed that greatly on my Astron and wouldn't buy a daily driver without it. Lume is great, but not real substitute.

    Another thing that I'm unsure of is whether the mentioned G-line Oceani have micro-adjustable bracelets. Could anybody enlighten me?

    The natural alternative would be the MR-G G1000, but no matter how many times I come back that magnificent beast, it's still too bulky and heavy for everyday wear.

    Many thanks for any recommendation.

    The older anadigi 300, 400, and 410 have lights, I'm not aware of any newer ones having them.

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    Guys, there's a rare (one of 300 made) OCW S1350 on Yahoo Japan Auctions right now. Came out in 2010. A little out of my bracket but figured someone here might be keen on it.

    Maybe you should look into the Casio Lineage line. The entry models like the LCW-M170D series do have most of what you ask for, except the titanium case.
    But:
    - compact enough
    - radio 6-wave control
    - sapphire glass
    - hybrid display (with black background LCD)
    - lume plus illuminating diode
    - black coating option. Whether DLC or not beats me.

    Also, they have standard lugs, so the ability to use some canvas or leather strap. From my experience, it’s solid links bracelets which make steel watches feel heavy on the wrist.
    Now alright their cases are non-commital, nothing like the Oshi complex shape. Imho ok for daily beaters.

    Generally, the Lineage line, if less distinctive, seems to be quite balanced and comprehensive.

    Did you mean the Lineage line Pankorop? As far as I know, most if not all analog Osh and Lineage do not have a light, the anadigi's do though.

    My bad. Lineage is what I meant — thanks!
    Will correct to avoid spreading confusius, err confusion :-/

    Corrected: Cmd-F “Edifice” Cmd-R “Lineage”

    Nice! I posted about this piece earlier in this thread. It is sick with that mother of pearl face plate. Let's all pitch in and buy one for the group.

    Here's a better photo:

    This is quite a nice post. Concise and informative. Thanks for your work on it! (And I’m not even the OP.)

    My OCW-G1000 does not have any type of micro adjustment system, just half links, but my G2000 does, though it only adjusts by about half a link via a sliding mechanism. These watches are so light weight and comfortable though that I didn't have any problems finding a comfortable fit.

    None of the model lines you mention have backlights, though this isn't that surprising for analog dials with substantially thinner profiles than MR-Gs.
