Straightaway I would like to turn off all those who will be complaining about Steinhart. Yes, this is quite interesting company, and some models might remind about more expensive counterparts. Watches from them still look good and worth talking about. Here is the new model – Steinhart Ocean One 39. Last number means precisely what you thought – case size. Let’s take a closer look.
By the way, here you can read article with another nice watch.

Smaller or better?
I know, there are many guys today with thin wrists, who would like to have nice watch. Well, 42 mm might look too big, and therefore German watchmaker decided to reduce it by 3mm. Such decrease should make model attractive not only for men, but also for some women. Yes, some ladies would like to have nice diver without looking too masculine. Well, Steinhart definitely targets this group, and you will see why further in this article.
As for the overall design, there is nothing changed in silhouette of this diver model, so it should be easy to recognise. Of course, this is stainless steel, and it will be silly to expect something like titan for such price. What is actually surprising – weight of this small case. Even with 39mm size Steinhart Ocean One 39 weights hefty 170 grams. It’s like an iPhone in your wrist! Well, extra weight is appreciated in case of nice watch. Moreover, I won’t say that it’s excessive or hard to bear, even though some women might feel uncomfortable.
Steinhart Ocean One 39 as Innovator
I wrote above that new model is finished in traditional style, right. Steinhart decided to give it a bit of distinctive touch and introduce new dials. This time you can get it in white color and mother of pearl dial. Should I say that such version might be attractive for ladies? Keep in mind that almost in all color options bezel is ceramic. Only green watch is supplied with aluminium bezel, so I would be careful with scratching it. Maybe that’s why it’s the cheapest one in the new model range? Top is covered with sapphire glass, another nice feature. Moreover, you might see that iconic “cyclops eye” is preserved here and placed right above date window.
Inside owner will find ETA-2824-2, quite nice automatic movement. This type is quite known among watch fans. Moreover, if you look carefully, don’t be surprised to find it in more expensive models from some famous manufacturers. Power reserve equals to 40 hrs, what is ok for such price tag. Don’t expect transparent caseback – watch closed with metal part, so you won’t be able to appreciate beauty of the inner structure.
Newcomer already available on the official Steinhart website. I have no doubt that there will be guys and girls who will appreciate classic looks of Steinhart Ocean One 39. Moreover, if you look through features and price tag – it will be even more attractive. Another important thing – there are few watches which can actually compete with this model. Don’t forget that other companies try to go into bigger format, so it’s good to see that at least somebody makes move in opposite direction. I hope that soon we will be able to test this watch and share our opinion with you.
