Steinhart Marine, Roman Chronometer Arrives

Post by Mr Rick »

I've wanted a Marine Chronometer for quite some time so when Gnomon received a new shipment I thought the time was right. This is the 'smaller' version at 44mm but it still has about the maximum wrist presence I can handle. All the usual statements about a Steinhart apply; good quality, good price, good value. I especially like the highly decorated movement.

Here are the specifications and a few pictures.

Maker: Steinhart Germany - Swiss Made
Movement: Swiss Unitas 6498 mechanical movement with Geneve stripes and blued screws
Dial: White with Roman numbers and markers
Luminous: N/A
Date: N/A
Case: Satin brushed stainless steel. Polished bezel.
Crown: Push-in XL crown
Lug: 22mm
Crystal: Domed sapphire crystal with AR coating on the inside
Strap: Thick 22mm brown leather strap
Water resistance: 30m
Dimensions: 44mm in diameter, 52mm lug to lug, 14.2mm thick
Power Reserve: ~42 hours

Great pics, Mr Rick.
I like the upgraded decoration on the movement, and the watch looks great.

Congrats! :)

Fair point!! :)

Seriously though my 'Cocktail' at 40mm is about ideal for me in a dressy watch, I think I would struggle with anything much smaller.

Thats lovely Mr Rick,

I have been looking at this for last 2 days thinking shall i or not. I think i am almost there now.
