Review of the Oceanus OCW-S1000 “Manta”

Oceanus-OCW-S1000-"Manta"

Up for review today is the Oceanus OCW-S1000 "Manta," an analog powerhouse of a dress watch with a formidable inner geek. Like all new Oceanus models, it's solar-powered, radio-set and very well made indeed. This one is the thinnest and lightest in the lineup at 10.2mm thick and 85g, made from titanium with a sapphire crystal. It's a very dressy watch with some interesting tradeoffs.

Announced in July 2007, the sleek and professional Oceanus OCWM700TDA-1A is the latest addition to the Oceanus line of classically styled quartz watches with leading-edge technical features.

Oceanus Releases New 5 Motor Watch (OCWM700TDA-1A)

Oceanus has just released a very nice new 5 Motor watch. I recently reviewed an earlier 5 Motor model which I was very impressed with. If you are new to Oceanus watches, Oceanus is a Casio brand which does an excellent job of combining digital technology with a clean and handsome design.
