Re: Incoming! Steinhart

I wasn’t totally sure about the double green initially but my wife persuaded me, and it is very nice, in the flesh. Most people prefer the 39 mil these days due to the lugs. My wrists are tiny and I think its fine, so I reckon for everyone else it’d be fine too. It feels more like a 40 or 41. Defini...

Re: Incoming! Steinhart

6” wrist Gordon, it was a bit 50 / 50 whether the lug to lug would be acceptable but I think its fine. Any larger and I’d return it. It’s similar to my Speedmaster but the lug profile on the Speedy makes it less of an issue.

Incoming! Steinhart

Having had my first order cancelled I had a change of heart and ordered the Hulk version of the Ocean 39 Premium instead. Here she is: https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210227/40d8cf317c2147b8a7155993869ed59b.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210227/a5a35b4a6b47fd8a16128c99763c4e34.jpg https:/...

Re: Rkovars is such an enabler!!!..

Yeah i’m surprised they haven’t addressed it given how many sales they miss out on over the years, for just that reason. I’m hoping the 39 is ok on mine when it arrives, as my weists are very small, 6”, but quite flat which should help.

Re: Rkovars is such an enabler!!!..

That looks fantastic, if they bring it out in a 39 I’d struggle to say no.

Interesting, maybe I will go with Gnomon then! Otherwise its 24 percent VAT and duty on top Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Why 24% VAT? You're in UK, the rate for which is 20%. Remember that Dynamite_Kid19 is in the USA so will only pay duty/tax if the purchase is over $800. Whether, you go wit...

Re: Incoming! Steinhart

Probably quicker and greener to get one from Germany rather than Singapore I reckon (I’m in UK) but that’s an option.

Re: Incoming! Steinhart

I’ve seen that mentioned by a number of people, yes. I think the general consensus is the 39 mil steel version works better overall. Now I’m being refunded I’m starting to have second thoughts and wondering if I should order the c65 super compressor instead. Argh!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Re: Incoming! Steinhart

Back to square 1 - Neil at Chronomaster found a fault with the watch he was due to send me, and can’t get any more in for a couple of weeks. Now in the process of getting a refund and reordering direct from Steinhart. Frustrating! Glad he found the issue before sending it out though. Sent from my iP...

Re: Incoming! Steinhart

After umming and ahhing ever since this came on the market, I’ve finally pulled the trigger on the steinhart ocean 39 premium GMT “batman style”. I sold my 1st gen C60 GMT orange blob and Hammy Jazzmaster Viewmatic to consolidate my collection and cover the costs. Hoping it won’t take long to come,...

Re: Tag Aquaracer on nato

@Bahnstormer _vRS yes I have a very narrow wrist, about six inches so that doesn’t help matters. I think the watch is about 41mm. The nato is comfortable - especially this particular one that is more of an RAF style fastening under the wrist rather than at the side. @Eddie thanks! Good suggestions a...
