    Mine has very limited vertical and horizontal viewing angles, which is a bit of a disappointment.

    It has nice features, though.
    Thanks for this reportage, it is very big compared with the Rangeman, but I love big case, about display angle of view, not disappointed because I rotate my wrist to have the zenith.
    Amazing time dimensions, super readable!


    32 € shipped, Amazon Prime, is nice and irresistible

    It's actually really well executed the negative display appears more legible than my 9400 Rangeman...

    Looks great. Love the orange accents against the stealthy black, looks like a manageable size, and great box! Congrats man.

    So I've had this titanium Oceanus OCW-G1000B-1AJF for about a week now and have noticed something interesting. All of the hands and indices on this thing are coated in a greenish-blue tint that is only noticeable in direct light. In the photo below, you can see a hint of it on the minute hand.

    When lit up, this greenish-blue tint reflects off the sapphire glass and makes the whole dial light up in an aqua-colored resplendence. Definitely one of the coolest looking dials I've seen in a while, though it renders the AR coating completely ineffective.

    If you're considering an Oceanus, some things to note:

    • These are dressier looking pieces compared to other high-end Casios like the MR-G or Pro Trek Manaslu, which retain more of a rugged, sporty look.
    • These tend to mostly be titanium watches on bracelets, so if you want the heft of steel, this is not for you. MT-G or PRW-7000 would be better options.
    • These wear a tad smaller (though by no means small watches) and thinner than Gs and Pro Treks, which is great if you want a high end Casio for the office or formal occasions.

    Fit and finish are top-notch, as is the attention to detail. I bought mine pre-owned for about 65% off MSRP, but I can see why someone would dish out full price for one of these.

    Congrats.

    If you set DST to Auto, it will pick up the DST flag when it syncs, if you're in range of WWVB.
