    Squale 20/30 astmos vs. Steinhart Ocean 1 series.

    I have the 30 atmos and I think it is a great watch. Anyone own both and have a preference.

    By the narrowest of margins the Steinhart. If you'd asked me just 6 months ago I would have said Squale but they seem to have some small QC issues that Steinhart don't.

    Can you be specific about the QC issues?

    I like the Squale fit more, L2L is too long and flat on the Steinhart as usual. and I think the Squale just felt better finished + slightly better lume. But I still flipped both as their lume was just too poor for my liking and now I have this.

    What is you take on the longer lugs. Apparently it is an issue with some. That's why I chose the Squale.

    I looked hard at the Armida, but the lugs looked too short to me.

    The 1545s were fine but when you find a tiny bit of fluff under the glass of your 1521 and a blemish in the bezel of your 1621 it tends to sour you on the brand a bit.

    My best friend's Ocean One ceramic and my Squale Heritage.
    I've found the fit and finish better on the Squale. They know how to make cases for sure ! I also like the fact the Heritage has an identity on his own, not just another black Sub' homage. The fact Squale has a history in the watch industry also matters to me.
