    It's an ultra-cool watch that will get you lots of bragging rights, but will probably not have much more practical use than your 200m WR G-Shock watch.

    It's a great conversation starter, though, with the oil-filled casing and water resistance to match the world's deepest oceans.

    Good comment here, I agree, it's a very cool watch, and would be perfect for the spear-fishing/lounging round the beach environment.

    I would ask about changing the battery.
    Not so simple with an oil-filled watch.

    Good point. At price I think it would maybe be better to just get another one. These have been sitting in that shop for ages. You'd want a fresh battery installed before purchasing.

    Sounds like a decent price for a pretty neat watch. Good point on the battery. I wouldnt have figured that one out until it was time for a battery change.
