While the model line has been discontinued, the Casio Oceanus models could be bought online for around or even more than 1000 USD, which means that this Casio watch is not for cheap. It is also expected to be durable and valuable the because it is packed with features and made using high-quality materials like Titanium. Therefore, if you are looking for a functional watch that is durable and stylish, you should give the Casio Oceanus a try.
