    S3000: https://products.oceanus.casio.jp/_detail/OCW-S3000-1A/

    ¥60,000 seems like an expensive price difference for a fancy bracelet...


    I've been lookoing for the differences btw two models. Actually i became smitten by two models, and I made decision yesterday...
    I agree with your opinion about the fancy brecelet. It's gorgeous bracelet. Another difference i think is shape of glass. S3000 has curved glass but t2600 has flat one. I think this curve makes s3000 more bling bling^^ Last thing i feel is... S3000 has more embosed dial design then t2600...
    I kind of like that simple round bezel in the T2600. That faceted/scalloped style bezel in the S3000 is a deterrant for me. Plus neither of the 2 models use a subdued grey colour for their City names around the periphery like the way you see in the S100. Makes the dial look far more dressy and less busy...

    Two of the main reasons I've sat on the fence with these two. If only that bezel on the S3000 were smooth circle,.. Plus, considering that it's part of the "Manta" line, I thought it's supposed to come equipped with the Bluetooth smartphone link feature like the S4000?

    Actually most of the Manta ("S" models) since their beginning do not have bluetooth.

    There is one more difference between them, besides already mentioned.
    S3000 has a more elegant clasp, however the notably bigger clasp of T2600 provides micro adjustment feature:

    S3000 does have more embosed dial design.
    It boasts of having radial circles, while T2600 has somewhat more regular sunburst pattern:

    That's very informative thanks!

    But I can't see the extra USD 400-500 being justified by all these cosmetic nuances... Plus the S3000 is a whole millimetre thicker than the T2600. The value proposition seems to have taken a bit of a hit in my opinion, both with the T2600 and the S3000.

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    I just got back from Singapore and visited the Ad at marina bay I was primarily going to look at the mrg and metal squares but tried on a couple of oceanis , I now understand your admiration for them I was blown away by the fit finish and light weight but my ageing eyes could not read the function hand location if I could it would be on my wrist maybe Casio will accomodate older eyes in the future.

    I feared this might have got lost in transit since I hadn't received any tracking updates since it left TYO on Sept 7th, and usually my shipments between TYO and NYC are a few days tops. Just noticed an update this morning that it finally made it to NYC. Should have it in 2-3 days hopefully. Woo hoo!

    I'm ready to pull the trigger on a S100, but the thought of the US cutting the atomic time from the budget gives me pause. I love the simplicity of my GW7900's atomic time keeping. I really don't want to lose that. From my limited reading, it appears the options if the atomic goes away are 1) get a bluetooth capable watch or 2) sync the watch with an app on my phone/computer, correct? Seems option #2 is feasible, just requires user input to achieve synchronization. Am I making more of this than need be?

    I guess option 3 would be get a gps capable watch, and option 4 would be get the S100 regardless of what happens to the US atomic time signal. It's a beauty and will still give you accurate time without the radio signal.

    No affiliation. There's an S100 for sale on Craigslist in SF Bay Area for $400.
