Any Opinions on Oceanus?

One of our readers asked us to do some research into Oceanus. From what I can tell, it’s essentially a solar-powered Casio-alike with some nice styling. Opinions? Pros? Cons? I spoke too soon. I just realized that I’ll probably be reviewing some of these in the near future. They’re actually a Casio offshoot and if the G-Shock and Pathfinder I’m reviewing right now are any indication, they’re pretty damn good.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. I checked out ewatches and a Tourneau’s site and they both say a lot of good things about them. I’d like one but the price of $400 dollars is a bit suffocating.

  2. Hey! much obliged to the host for checking out this company. Seriously, they are being heavily advertised in NYC’s transit system lately. Huge billboards and side-of-the–bus advertisements.

    What I am still keen on understanding is this: what is the host’s criteria for judging a watch? Like, I know how to judge a good beer. I know what makes a car a lemon. I can tell what is good poetry and bad music. How does one grade the inside of a timepiece?

    For example: is ‘mechanical’ inherently “better”? Why? Is there any way we can learn more about watch engineering, so as to be better able to see through advertising hype?

  3. p.s. I also see a lot of watches being hawked from the ShopNBC channel (when I am channel-surfing). Perhaps you can take a glance at their website sometime. “Invicta” and “Croton” brands are ones I havent seen reviewed here yet, but they’re touting them heavily. I’d like to know more about them. The prices are usually $1400! But they don’t look as good as many of the watches on WWR.

    BTW, when discussing watches, does the term “analog” mean the exact same thing as “mechanical”?
