Online PR News – 10-April-2015 – Dubai, UAE – Casio Middle East FZE announced the Middle East launch of their new OCEANUS brand of solar-powered radio-controlled metal watches designed to capture the essence of elegance and technology. These watches come equipped with an original hybrid timekeeping system developed by Casio which receives both Global Positioning System (GPS) signals and radio wave time-calibration signals, through which the watches can determine the user’s current location anywhere in the world and correct the time accordingly with just one push of a button.
The OCEANUS brand is being launched in tandem with the opening of the brand's 150th POS in the region at Al Ghurair Centre. OCEANUS watches feature user-friendly world time functions and are equipped to receive GPS signals and radio wave time-calibration signals transmitted from six stations around the world. The Oceanus brand represents latest innovation by the intrepid engineers at Casio, who have gained a global reputation for blending the latest technology effortlessly with the intricacies of fine design and style.

The new OCEANUS OCW-G1000 is the first watch to fit the unique hybrid timekeeping system into titanium cases with TiC hardened coating to make the metal more resistant to scratches. With just a push of a button, the watches can access the exact location information, determine the time zone and adjust for daylight savings time. In as little as seven seconds, the watches correct the time using either GPS signals or radio wave time-calibration signals, depending on the user’s location. The OCEANUS brand also features the Dual Dial World Time function, which lets users simultaneously confirm the time in two different cities, making world travel simpler.
In addition, OCEANUS watches come equipped with shadow-dispersing solar cells that efficiently receive light using a smaller surface area. This technology enables Casio to create a highly refined watch face design. The face features dual-curved sapphire glass with an anti-reflective coating on both sides for high visibility, and the case has been finished with Sallaz polishing for a lustrous finish.
