Steinhart has been around for quite a while now, and over the years we’ve seen a lot of spectacular looking watches made by them. One of their first and probably most popular models is the Ocean 1 which is a clear homage to the classic Rolex Submariner. The „OCEAN 1 GREEN” edition holds a place dear to my heart and has been a good companion for over 3 years now. In doing so it got a lot of my “wrist-time”, meaning it has been on my wrist night and day for most of the time. The Ocean 1 is well regarded as being an exceptional watch for the money. The sporty exclusiveness of the „OCEAN 1 GREEN” makes it stand out from other diver watches. Its solid design guarantees highest resilience as well as an outstanding quality. Within the large genre of sports diver watches the „OCEAN 1 GREEN” is one of the few examples in its price range which demonstrates such an excellent cost-performance ratio.
Even though the Ocean 1 is a homage to the Rolex Submariner, the case size is more modern, being slightly larger. It measures 42mm in diameter, 13mm high, with a 50.5mm lug to lug length and weighs in at around 190g . The automatic movement used in the Steinhart Ocean 1 is the excellent Swiss Made ETA 2824-2. It’s a high beat movement, running at 28.8k bph offering a very smooth sweep of the central second hand. It also has hand-wind capabilities, a hacking second hand, and the normal 40 hours of power reserve. The time keeping has been to my complete satisfaction, reliable and accurate, with a accuracy of about +3sec a day. So it is a pretty decent, impressive and stunningly beautiful watch for your wrist.
So for the price of 380€ I can highly recommend the Steinhart Ocean 1 and if you ever come across a better Swiss Made diver for less then please tell me!
