Casio releases the OCW-G1100S, a new addition to the OCEANUS line of metal watches designed to capture the essence of elegance and technology. The new watch features solar and GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor technologies and is inspired by the mysterious beauty of the exosphere, the space between Earth’s atmosphere and outer space. A limited edition of 200 watches will be released worldwide.
OCEANUS is a line of solar-powered titanium metal watches offering sophisticated design and advanced functionality. The OCW-G1000 and OCW-G1100 are both equipped with GPS and standard time signal reception technology. This feature gives users the correct local time wherever they go.
Based on the OCW-G1100, the new OCW-G1100S represents a further evolution of OCEANUS blue. The design motif captures the deep blue mystery of the exosphere as it transitions into the blackness of outer space.
Furthermore, the 12 o'clock index marker features a large recrystallized blue sapphire, evoking a satellite motif. In addition to a natural diamond set on the second hand axis in the center of the dial, the watch case and band feature a DLC coating, giving the new model the scratch-resistance needed to maintain the beauty of the watch for a long time.
The new OCW-G1100S is packed with advanced technology, too. It not only includes solar and GPS Hybrid Wave Ceptor technologies, but also comes with a Dual Coil Motor, which enables the watch hands in the inset dial at the 6 o’clock position to move at high speed both clockwise and counter clockwise. As a result, the time shown in the dial can change quickly whenever world time functions are used. Moreover, the speed of the moving hands is regulated for an interesting effect, adding to the pleasure of wearing this watch. This premium watch, produced using the sophisticated manufacturing technologies of Casio Yamagata Factory in Japan, combines a luxurious look with high functionality and practicality.
