This one just landed

Managed to secure an unworn one with tags with 15% off rrp!

The braclet was straight off. It's screaming out for a vintage leather nato so will need to pick one up!

The Nato strap spoils what is clearly an excellent watch IMHO.  Literally anything would look better than a Nato.  Did I mention I don't like Nato straps? :tongue:

I have ordered a vintage leather.

Being a milsub homage it is destined for a nato because the original had fixed lugs and couldn't take a bracelet

I have a few others in the watchbox on steel so the bracelt is staying in it's original wrapping for now.

 Very nice. Have you considered sailcloth ?

Very nice @DarthSmavid I do love a bracelet but sometimes a good old lethering is just what's needed.   :whistling:
I like that sailcloth too though.  :yes:

Just bagged a 39mm Ocean One from Steinhart.  While I mostly like the bracelet, it is probably going to come off and have a leather version too.

Wear yours with pride :-)

Hi mach 0.0013137.

That is a lovely watch. I have been looking at these my self very recently contemplating a purchase. I like most of the divers models particularly the Ocean Forty-Four GMT BLACK, and the Ocean 1 vintage Dual Time Premium. Can I ask, did you purchase yours direct from Steinhart, if you did, what was the transaction like.

Regards, Paul.

I originally ordered from Steinhart and a week later cancelled the order because they were taking too long to dispatch.

I then found one on Fleabay unworn and did a cash deal with the owner.

If buying new I would go with Chronomaster, he is a steinhart AD and is based in the UK. I bought a steinhart pepsi GMT from him last year.

While I do like the braclet it's not a true Milsub homage on steel. (Sorry to all the nato haters :tongue:)
