Thread: New Watch Day - Steinhart GMT Ocean One 39mm Red/Blue

    New Watch Day - Steinhart GMT Ocean One 39mm Red/Blue

    Been looking at these for a long time now, but was unsure about the whole "homage thing" and how I would feel wearing one. But I do like them, want a GMT and want a watch for work and holidays. So I went for it.

    Got the 39mm as it's a good size and the 20mm strap width is a bonus.

    First impressions are generally good, but very good for the price.

    It's well finished and nice and hefty. The bracelet is very nice indeed with solid end links and a secure clasp. But I bought this to wear on NATO straps and my daughter bought me a new canvas strap to go with it (great choice for a 12 year old).

    The bezel moves nicely with solid clicks and lines up well. The GMT hand lines up well too. On some reviews I read on older models neither of these always did so. It is pleasant to wind, but setting the time and date are not on par with the feel of a more expensive watch.

    The lume seems strong and bright and the case back is nicely decorated.

    I've only had it a couple of hours so far, so that's it for now.

    Enjoy the pictures!

    Refreshing size at 39mm - my personal sweet spot.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Putting it on a NATO actually makes it wear quite a bit smaller than on the bracelet, but yes it us a good size (also available in 42mm)

    That is nice, but how does it vary from the model offered on Steinhart’s own site?

    I don't want to get in trouble with 6 digit owners but the Steinhart lugs and end link arrangement is nice, borderline nicer than the OG. Good pickup that rounds out the collection in your sig nicely. It's a bit of a relief not to have too much to worry about on your wrist.

    well they must be old pics as the ocean one had vintage lume for a short run then it became a white lume from memory.


    this is my one from a few years back when I bought it also now the dial writings can be had in various colours
