Just when you think you have a handle on what Casio is offering up in their lineup, they go ahead and hit you with something like the Casio Oceanus Manta, which not only manage to be super-thin (and offer up a variety of complications), they also end up doing something quite amazing with sapphire on the bezels.

Now sapphire, we’re used to that showing up as a bezel insert, which is a nice touch, particularly if it’s lumed. But what if the bezel itself is sapphire, and cut and finished in some clever, almost jewel-like, manner? That’s what you get with the two higher-end models that have been recently released (and one is actually completely sold out).

Casio Oceanus Manta: Specs

Now those two models, those are a bit more trending towards unobtanium with their price tags being north of two grand, but we still like to see the style. They’ve also got three other models that are a bit more affordable, and all look to still be fully in-stock. Here’s what Casio has to say about the range:

Known for its slim profiles, the Oceanus line continues to push the limits to provide the thinnest watches in Casio’s lineup. The OCWS6000SW2A is now the thinnest watch in the Casio & Oceanus lineup of watches to date, boasting a profile of 9.2 mm. Each model is crafted by hand at Casio’s Yamagata factory in Japan, where only 300 were made.

Oceanus also introduces the S7000 series similarly featuring both a smooth sapphire crystal bezel, titanium case and band and double-sided anti-reflective sapphire glass. Of the three models, each sport a different color personality. The OCWS7000A, and OCWS7000B have blue to black gradation IP on the dial, while the OCWS7000 has a solid black dial.

Each case and band of the series are formed from hardened titanium but treated with different color finishes. OCWS7000 and OCWS7000A are finished with silver IP, while the OCW-S7000B is dark grey IP. The S7000 models measure 9.5 mm thin. All models are equipped with Casio’s latest technologies, including Multi-Band 6, Tough Solar, Tough Movement, 100-meter water resistance, smart access, and
Bluetooth connectivity via the CASIO Watches app.
