Steinhart Ocean 39 Gilt Explorer Dial Review

Hi everyone, happy holidays, I had a chance to check out a unique new Steinhart Ocean 39 with vintage inspired gilt explorer dial and gilt handset.

I know, homages are always controversial. However, I think this watch provides a great looking watch that's not being offered by Rolex or Tudor at a price that is affordable to many. It is also well made and features an ETA elaboré grade 2824-2 movement, 316L stainless construction, sapphire crystal, etc.

Anyways, here's my review if you want to check it out. Cheers!

It looks great, and likely good for a gift if not personal wear. The video comments area shows "loading" and never loads.

The watch does look nice, but with so much borrowed optical DNA it should - a mismash between vintage explorer and a sub.

Despite the banana case profile these are excellent value for the money and offer a chance to experience styles from our childhood

Love the lug holes. Makes it really easy to change straps.
