    The 700/7000 are unique with that little tide graph, which if you think about, makes sense for a watch with "Ocean" in it's name. The 7000 has a different bracelet with a deployant clasp and a tach bezel, but I haven't noticed anything else. It's possible the 7000 is Ti carbide treated and the 700 isn't but that's just speculation on my part. The 7000 seems a bit more scarce, I've seen several 700's at auction but no 7000's.

    The good thing about the 700, unlike some Oceanus is there's no center lug. You're free to get any strap you want! Leather, rubber, perlon, nato..

    I lucked out on this S100 in Yahoo market Japan. Never seen another quite the same: the hour indexes are silver, not blue. Dial slate gray; the bezel same, almost black (DLC?), with minute markings. Oddly, the tip of the seconds hand and UTC at 12 are a pale orange-beige. The only blue accents are the Oce...

    I’m so glad it can’t take another watchband, so I left it on the bracelet. With this scorching summer here, it’s among the only watches I can wear comfortably — light and fresh. The other two are a Luch one-hander on fine mesh, and a Perseo railroad pocket watch! But no swimming with these...
    Sorry for this quick (shot) and dirty (glass) low-res:

    Superb harald. They look great on those Erikas straps, and only 63gm? So light! I ordered a couple Erikas almost 2 weeks ago, haven't heard anything on when or if they've shipped.

    Cool Pankorop, you have the "F" model. I believe they made 4 variations of the S100, I don't see yours at auction very much. No idea if the bezel is black IP or DLC though.

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    These babies show off what Casio is really capable of, even beyond the robustness of the MR-Gs.

    Great thread to drool over, but in reality I don't crave any of the current Oceanus lineup. I'm very happy with the Seiko Astron which is comparable in elegance, tech and build quality.

    Hmmm - the Astron do only have GPS and so you have to change the DST manual !!!

    The Oceanus - for example the OCW-G2000 - has not only MultiBand6, it also has the GPS AND the Bluetooth connection via APP to your Smartphone - why Bluetooth ?

    For example - if there is any change in a time zone in the future you will receive an update via the APP - this would never will work with ONLY GPS !!!

    I think this made a great difference - for me it was the reason to sell all my Seiko Astron´s ...

    MRG's are amazing in their own right and are tested to meet Gshock standards of toughness. I don't know to what levels of shock Oceanus tested but I've often wondered if they undergo some of the same tests G's do. I know they have "tough solar" and "tough movt" and some use a "hybrid mount construction for added shock resistance" but beyond that I have no idea. Most newer Oceanus are 100M water resistant too so there's that.

    Stunning pictures Harold-Hans, thank-you. What strap have you put on them?

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    I think harald-hans is going to be responsible for a lot of Oceanus purchases.

    Here's a quick shot of my new one; will post more later.
