    Agree. I suspect Casio uses high-grade quartz for the Oceania lines. Without sync the watch can still run with less than 5s deviation per month which is absolutely better than the plus-minus 15s per month standard.

It is ok, but I was expecting that the atomic precision would not fade away so quick (ie overnight).
    All in all, it is a great purchase and definitely a keeper!

    Are you sure it synced to atomic time and not the phone's time? After syncing, check time.is to see if it agrees.

    Unfortunately I live in Brazil, so sending it to Japan would be a hassle. I will try to set time manually and see if it could keep precision.

    Yep! My other quartz watches (Hamilton and Tag) are very precise, so I was kind of disappointed. I will set time manually and see how it goes.

    You are correct. It was phone's time, not atomic time. Apparently the JJY emulator app just emulates the atomic sound frequency but uses phone's time. I've downloaded another app and checked that phone's time is 8 seconds ahead of atomic time. So I will set atomic time manually and check if the watch could keep it throughout the week.

    Absolutely stunning. I really like that they made the bezel now so much flatter. Also the design (to me) has now become just so seductive-addictive. I'm especially in love with the hands. No I don't think I have a hand fetisch, but a beautiful hand design is just so important. I also prefer the date window at 3, so that is a check for me as well.

    ...it retains the choice of MB6 - thumbs up YES!

    I have the feeling I will take a good look at this one the next time when we are in Japan (I decided that going forward any analog I can only buy in person).

    I'm a noob and it's nice but it seems some of the other models have better features with this one's claim to fame being thin ... is that a thing for this style watch? I can see if you need a dress watch, but is that what these are for? (and if so why they're not sold in the US?)
