    Can anyone convince me not to buy a Steinhart Ocean Titanium 500?

    I would post this in the Steinhart sub-forum, but I feel the public forum would be a little more objective towards a Steinhart watch. I'm trying to convince myself I don't need it, but everything about this watch seems to deliver quality bang for buck. It seems like a beautiful timepiece, but I just bought a white c60 Trident diver. However, I don't have a black diver in my collection, so maybe this can complement it in that manner. I'm really on the fence about getting it -- really about to pull the trigger on it, but I'd love to read some criticism on it, or praise, from anyone who has experience with this watch!

    If you haven't pulled the trigger it's because you probably shouldn't. I buy stuff I find irresistible without hesitation.

    Aside from the Swiss engine here, this watch will look and feel like a lot less than you'd pay for it, from my only Steinhart Ocean experience. I think you'll be underwhelmed, like I was, especially since you're hesitating.

    On god plus side, they seem to hold their value to resell if you don't love it.

    Two polarizing responses. It's a watch I wish I can see in person before making a decision.

    No experience with Steinhart watches. The look of this one leaves me cold, but so do many other divers.

    Still, based purely on looks, I would take the following similarly, or slightly higher, priced (grey market) models over this one:

    - Certina Action DS
    - Alpina Seastrong
    - Lum-Tec LT300M

    I personally kinda like it. It's has a cool unique look to it and will wear light because of the titanium. If all the dimensions work for you then why not!

    You've got a new diver so enjoy that.

    And to keep the Steiny from separate you from your money, start hunting for it used. Download watchrecon and set up alerts and try to get one for 30% off new retail. It may take awhile and in that time you may find your want start to wane. You get to keep alive the idea of buying the watch while you wean yourself from the thought watch slowly, like a heroin addict takes methadone to edge him off the addiction.

    watchesaresocool,

    I agree with Jacob E. that you should take a look at other offerings. I suggest you look at one of these on The Grey Market:

    Watch Details | certina

    I don't own that Certina but I do own and am really impressed with this model that is similar in appearance and also all titanium:

    Watch Details | certina

    I don't think you will be disappointed with what a Certina offers.

    Its a decent watch for the money but not as well finished as the chr ward trident pro 600 ceramics.

    I have one but its gone up for sale after picking up a trident in the recent 30% off sale.

    Ti 500 is at its best on a black nato.
