    from the video it seems there is no independent hand control of the hour and minute hand like before with the S4000?

    Citizen used to sell 2 motor multi function models less than 10mm thick around late 90s early 2000. Seiko was in same shoes around 1989 and very early 90s.
    Said models did not had MB6 or solar but were quite marvelous for a times.
    Getting rid of few motors likely doing a trick in making watch thin.

    I found the Casio site which says "Smart Access", but I am not sure if this includes independent hand control or only control by crown.

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    So there is a place for Oceanus here! I waited a few years to pick one up as most were a tad larger than I knew I would keep and I hate flipping. After getting onboard with G-Shock Bluetooth and seeing the new 2019 models I knew I had to have the T3000 after seriously considering the former Classic line models.

    I feel for me the Oceanus line offers what I like about the Citizen HAQ watches, specifically the ECO-Drive solar models. Zaratsu polishing made popular by Grand Seiko before Casio I believe, seen on the case, the markers, and hands that only require dim light to read and lume Seiko Monster strong and the list goes on. Attention to detail is all over the place.
    Next, G-Shock! Oceanus gives me Tough Solar, Tough MVT, Bluetooth APP interface, and the overall reliable build quality we typically see with our G-Shocks.
    Then I would say it's a hodgepodge of my former Breitling HAQ models, that invisible crystal, high polished hands and titanium. Since I feel most smart watches are ugly still, I have a smart watch I like.

    Thats grate news, I thinks this watch deserves a ton more press just amazing craftsmanship. My watch already slides underneath my cuff so easy I could not imagine how great of a watch this would be with a suit cuff

    Love the look of that one, I just wish with the watch they have for that type of style they would make them 200 meters water resistant. They just look like they're ready to go diving. I need to purchase a new diver because I'm going snorkeling in the Bahamas this upcoming Christmas. Eyeing a GWM5610.

    which is the one i want : (

    why do they do this? Even if they can make a bunch of $$ off of mark up, how could that be more than what they'd make if they just did a general release with a slightly smaller mark up?

    Most, if not all watch makers play this game though these days! It is what it is I guess.

    Getting hold of an " S" model Oceanus is a real pain in the butt if you don't live in Japan, I was really lucky to get mine a few years ago. ( OCW-G1000S-1AJR ).

    If you can't get one, you'll find them on the bay a few weeks after release, with a huge mark up from RRP naturally
