    First Steinhart (Ocean One 39 Black Ceramic)

    Just got it and I'm in the first few hours of owning it. So far I'm impressed with the size and overall fit and finish. One thing I noticed is the bracelet isnt the craziest quality but I am coming from an Oris Aquis which has arguably one of the best steel bracelets in the business so I'm a bit spoiled and I feel Steinhart shouldnt be docked for it.

    Other than that, no one here wants to read a wall of text so bring on the pictures.

    My first Steinhart is also an Ocean 39 purchased in December 2017.....

    Replaced the bracelet with a Toxic Nato N80 Herringbone Bond color....

    (Ignore the fingerprints as it's dirty and a fingerprint magnet!!)

    The timekeeping should be excellent. I believe the "elabore" version of this movement (which you have) is rated at +/- 7 seconds per day over time as an average. The individual daily rates will vary, however. Mine has been running at +4 per day for over two months. I'm very happy with that. Give it a couple of weeks to break in. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong on the specs.

    I'm going to time it in the next week or so. Just want it to settle down but honestly I'm not that into having the most accurate movement. If I lived by seconds or minutes of accuracy I would just have a Quartz watch for that reason. Then again I don't want to lose half hour per month.

    You should have no problem. I also have the marine-chronograph (44) with the ETA Valjoux 7750 movement. It's running +4 sec/day. Love it as well. On this one you can see the movement through the caseback. Gets lots of compliments.

    I have been timing it and it's got great accuracy. So far two weeks in, it's got an accuracy of +1.1 secs per day. That's really good and I've been wearing this watch 24/7. I know i have some missed dates but they were kinda wonky and did it wrong so I deleted them. Plus there was a day where I had to adjust it for daylights savings, but it didn't seem to mess up the average.

    Those are some impressive numbers right there. I wasn't sure if Steinhart regulated each movement but your numbers would indicate so.

    Obviously take my numbers with a grain of salt. I'm not sure if they are regulating the 39s but would appear so, but only way to tell is if other owners of this watch can post their timing records and see if there is a trend or a select few got lucky.

    Congratulations! How did you decide between the 39 and 42? I have 7" wrist and can't decide which one would be best.

    When I was first researching this I haven't had a watch that was sub 40mm plus I have seen and read that the 42 mm ocean ones had a really straight lug system which gave a really large gap between the bracelet and lug. I believe the watch YouTuber bruce William had a 42mm ocean one and he has bigger wrists than you and he showed it and it looked kinda unsightly to me. But that's just me.
