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.

    I'm in between this line and the Seiko Astron line, has anyone ever made a comparison?

    I haven't seen any such direct comparisons on F17, but regular forum member Miklos86 did own an Astron and posted photos of it frequently for a while. He sold it recently after acquiring an MR-G.

    For the most part, the Oceanus line is based on mid-size titanium bracelet models with sapphire crystals, solar-powered, radio-controlled, and GPS & Bluetooth-sync for the higher end specs. Astron seems to offer more variance in terms of case and band materials, and also offers larger case sizes. The overall aesthetic is also quite different in my opinion, with Oceanus tending towards polished titanium bits and blue-green reflective surfaces in keeping with its name, versus the more world traveler, sporty visual theme of Astron, but that comes down to personal taste of course.

    What is amusing in this comparison is that the Oceanus are made in the same contractor factory as Grand Seiko and Credor.

    I don’t think the Astron is made to the same high standard.

Very comfortable, good looking and entertaining.
    Same thing happened to me, I have sold all my watchs other than my g-shock. It's just that good, and for such a beautiful watches it's so rugged. Was throwing around the baseball with my son a pop-up hits me in the watch nothing to worry about no damage at all. The only time I take it off is when I'm painting or doing serious house work. My grail watch is a Rolex oysterquartz my goal is to get one by the time I am 45 (30 now) I can easily see this watch lasting me the next 15 years.
