Tragic is spot on here, the Ball wins hands down on all fronts. Of course, these are two very different watches, but w/o question I'd go for the Ball. I actually *own* a 43mm Fireman with blue indicies and it is by far one of my favorites. Can be had for not much more than the Oceanus and is way more versatile, not to mention build quality/fit & finish are much higher in comparison.
Get the Fireman with the bracelet, then pick up a few aftermarket leather straps - you'll score yourself a nice automatic timepiece that you can literally wear with anything & for any occasion. Plus how cool are those tritium tubes!!
