    If you want on-the-fly adjustment without tools, I’m afraid you’re sent on the Casio GMT divers/military style market. Now those I see with that bracelet, afaik aren’t satellite controlled, and more often steel than Ti.
    In other threads it was mentioned that some Oceanus models do have an on-the-fly micro-adjust, but I don't remember which models they are. I think at least one of them also has GPS.

    An Oceanus dial when lit up right looks like the inside of a shell.

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    And now for something different...Pt.1

    Been fighting an urge since finding my pawnshop Oceanus, and since only my feelings will be hurt if this doesn't work, I decided to give it a go.

    Originally coated black in what I assume is ion-plating, the finish was in pretty rough shape. There is a backplate shot earlier in this thread.

    Disassembly...btw I lost one of the rubber o-rings and was very relieved to find one in a junked GA110 to be identical. Sure saved me a hassle, but probably more common parts than we realize in these things

    Naked and vulnerable...plus nice to see some original glossy finish under what was hidden by the backplate.

    Little bit of masking to protect the crystal, and into the dark it goes. Rock tumblers remove finish on metal very well and I've used this same load of rocks and grit for several projects.
    To protect the crystal and the original glossy underside of the case, both were masked and checked at about the 1 and 6hr mark. Both were good then but unfortunately in the morning the rear tape had fallen off. Maaaaybe not the correct tape, but have used it without failure previously. Oh well To the sapphire's credit there was no damage, but the fine slurry got around the city ring and caused some issue but I hope to clean that up properly in the future with some advice from members.

    There was nearly no wear on the buttons, so keeping them black will add a bit of contrast to what I hope will be a dull, matte, titanium finish with slight traces of black in tight areas.
    Not sure if everything put in (case, backplate and strap) is titanium so prepared for different finishes. Not going for perfection, but fingers are crossed for good results.

    Hopefully I'm not judged too harshly for putting an Oshi in a bucket of mud and rocks Stay tuned...

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    I think you're on the right track FarmeR57, that's some of the most worn black IP I've ever seen. You could also try some fine sandpaper or a dremel to remove any remaining black. Titanium brushes/polishes nicely. I think it'll look cool with the black buttons too.

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    I have just the one Oceanus, the OCW-M700T.

    It is full titanium with sapphire crystal. It is a very comfortable wearer, light at only 94g and very slim for a solar atomic with five motors.

    It has that unusual feature, an analog tide gauge.

    I like that black variant mitch. If I were to pick one up it would be that, although I do like the one with the blue bezel too...

    Nice find, Mitch!

    Looks cool.

    Re: The Official Casio Oceanus Thread

    Very nice Mitch and thanks for the factory fresh 'before' picture

    After about 20 hrs or so of tumbling the results are in==> pt. 2

    This is the backplate right after being rinsed. The black coating remained in the engraved lettering for a nice effect.

    Reassembled after an oil rub. Didn't notice initially, but the backplate screws are coated black as well. Knowing that getting rid of the black completely would be next to impossible, I am quite happy with the finish, looking for a more faded effect than perfectly uniform. Some scratches on the case/bezel were too deep to be covered. Took pics under various lighting to give better idea of coloring.

    Starting to try some alternate straps. Modded a resin band to fit and don't mind the results. Also going to try a black or grey 2-piece nato.

    So overall, I am pleased with the outcome, but there is some residue left trapped between outside edge of crystal and the case. Anyone with advice on chances of removing the crystal to tidy that up?

    I love the results! I've always been a fan of the matte titanium gray look. I like black ip and polished too, but the gray is a great alternative. Have fun trying out different straps!

    That looks great actually. Far better than the worn black coating look.

    You also now have a pretty unique Oceanus.
