    New Steinhart Ocean Titanium with Engraved Ceramic!

    Wow. What a roller coaster thread! Just finished the whole thing after picking away over a couple days. I have always loved this one. I peeked at the website and saw the change to the 2892 and wondered why. Though I know it is a highly regarded movement. Well hearing the seemingly higher than usual issues with the soprods the switch now makes sense.

    Things I like-Swiss made, higher end Swiss movement, sapphire, lumed ceramic bezel, legible, classic looks, pops of blue, titanium, bgw9, thin profile, 500m, display back.

    Things I don't-flat lugs, though I think I can pull it off. My armida A2 just works for me and I bet this wears similarly.

    I am very tempted to grab one of the new ones but I would have to jettison a watch or two (bathys, armida A2, sumo...?)

    This thread hasn't made me hotter or colder on the watch just more educated. I think I should be able to pull it off with my 6.75" wrist. Seems many people have that size wrist and said it's a good fit.

    If any enablers want to chime in or throw out some eye candy or wrist shots, please do!

    I'm not worried about the different tones of metal as I noticed that even on some ss watches and it's not a bother for me.

    Anyone chime in on pros and cons vs the soprod a10, ETA 2892 and the 2824-2? I believe the 92 is slimmer and regarded as higher end. Is it as "workhorse" as the 2824 often is perceived?

    Thanks all! Appreciate your contributions

    Flat lugs were the deal breaker for me. I couldn't get over it or used to it.

    Here is a great review of the ETA 2892 http://www.chronometrie.com/eta2892/eta2892.html

    I absolutely recommend this watch. I wear mine 24/7. I owned the one with the a10 and had no problems with mine, but I sold it and got the ETA version when it was released. Mostly because it's been around for longer and is tried and true. If you do have a problem, many watchmakers will be able to service it. I'm not an expert though, I think the guy from the review does a good job and really pushed me over the top to flip mine for the ETA. I probably wouldn't have if I had to pay more, but I was able to sell for the same price I got the ETA model for.

    Re: New Steinhart Ocean Titanium with Engraved Ceramic!

    Thanks. Helpful info! Whats is your wrist size TRF? It looks like a nice fit for you.

    I found this too.

    ETA 2824 vs 2892

    Also the steinhart website now says "13mm" height/thickness. I believe before it was 14.5? Likely thats the height excluding the domed crystal and that nothing has changed?

    I feel like i may be slipping towards this one...

    How do you guys find the height? Does it wear like a 14.5 or does the construction and crystal make it wear slimmer?

    I always thought it was 13mm to begin with.

    Edit: Yes, I just measured my Soprod OTi500 with a ruler and I'm reading 13mm including height of the crystal.

    Straight and long lugs are not ideal but the light weight makes this one feel like it hugs my wrist better than similar Steinharts such as the OVM. I had three Steinharts and sold two of them because they felt a little big on my 6.5 inch wrist with those straight lugs. For some reason this one works better. If only Steinhart would curve their lugs.

    My wrist is 7.25" and flat so I have no problems in terms of wearability. I think the height is 13mm. I've never had a problem with the height, it always slides under my sleeve nicely.

    Great thanks!

    How is the accuracy on your 2892?
