    Casio Oceanus

    Saw this posted in an unrelated forum and was intrigued. They use bluetooth to help sync it. I didn't know such an animal existed, and it does not look that bad either.

    It's this one: https://products.oceanus.casio.jp/_detail/OCW-T200S-1A/

    The whole current collection: https://oceanus.casio.jp/collection/

    Seiya does them.

    The overview of Oceanus Connected tech: https://oceanus.casio.jp/club/blue/1904/1/

    Not being a fan of BT tech in watches, I'd still go with an S100 model if I was after an Oceanus, even though the design is probably a bit dated now and I think I like the hands on T200S more.

    I haven't been on this forum for a while.

    I own one of these, having recently purchased it. The movement is very easy to operate and very intuitive. If one does not like BT, it may be competely omitted. The watch then will sync through radio waves.

    Or the syncing may be turned off completely.

    The watch weighs only 54 grams without the strap. The lume is actually very good. I don't sleep with it so cannot tell you if it will last all night long.

    The most important for me that it hits ALL the marks. My OCD can finally rest.

    As I am very partial to tool watches, I will patiently wait for Casio Overland with this movement. Hopefully Casio will read this post

    I sold the above, medium blue, T200 and purchased grey-dialed one.

    And now I can confirm. The lume will last the whole night. I exposed the Casio, along with Seiko and Citizen divers, to light for some time. The time was readable on all three after about seven hours in the darkness.
