Hi Ianmedium, I've seen these on ebay myself and interested as it would make a smart beater, what is the size of the face and lug width ? (I have a nice spare metal bracelet that would suit it)
The dimensions are:What is the lug width on those? I was looking at the black dialed one but I'm hesitant if the strap is too narrow. It just looks like it would go well on a wide band.
He was very very helpful, I see he has another store on ebay as well as a non ebay store!Nice watch, Ive also purchased from jj & had a hassle free experience.
I don't have official conformation of this but jj's email is this company so I am guessing they are one and the same!Cheers Ian, very helpful. I'm interested in the non chrono black face, will have a look on ebay tonight. By the way, does JJ have a non ebay website ?
Shipped on the 18th, arrived on the 28th!:-!10 Business days? Or 10 days overall?
I'm looking forward to it! What one have you got?Super deal.
I'll do a review on mine as well.
I don't think you will be dissapointed, especially when you take into account the price!I have both. Purchased them 2 months ago but will only get them this week (hopefully) because I was traveling.
OOO, That is a lovely one and an amazing deal, Can't wait to see the pic's!Cheers for the threads, I've just hunted down a very cheap Oceanus OC503L-1AV on ebay (black face chrono with sapphire glass), $49 plus shipping, bargain ! Retail $270....Got it from 4-watches.
Thats it..no more...
I completely agree with your thoughts! The dial is what get,s it for me, really fine detail! Also I like the way the polished and brushed finish complement each other, this watch shines like no other I have owned.Have had the watches for a few days. I'm very impressed with the value of these Oceanus. Easily on par with some $300 Victorinox or Wenger models.
The fit, finish and attention to detail is evident. What I like best is the embossed dial and applied lumed markers that's usually found on higher priced watches like the Seiko Premier line (not Premier quality yet though ).
I don't think there's a better looking time/date/alarm quartz currently.
Specs wise, you get solid end links, push button clasp, accented links, sapphire crystal, screwdown crown and 100m WR. The bracelet is not as comfy as say the oyster on JDM Prospex but easily the equal of a recent Seiko 5.
This is THE ebay deal for watches under $100 for me.
Funny you should say that as It is something I noticed as well, did'nt know about the sign of quality though!Pictures tomorrow.
One more thing. You can't hear the tick of the second hand even with the watch glued to your ear. That means the sapphire crystal is really thick.
An old-timer told me a silent quartz watch (with a second hand) is a good sign of quality. Guess this Oceanus passes.
