    I took the plunge and purchased a Steinhart Ocean 39 GMT Premium. The transaction with Steinhart went very smoothly. The watch is great, it is even better looking in person. I added a note with my order asking for Steinhart to verify the GMT mechanism. It has works perfectly for 11 days now. Steinhart have a 14-day return policy as long as the protective film remains on the watch. So I kept it in quarantine for over a week. Currently it is gaining about +5 sec/day, Iíll give that a few more months to see if it settles down. The GMT mechanism is spot on.
    I added a custom MN strap from Erikaís Originals, itís a great looking combination and a very comfortable summer strap. I like it!!

    Well you've certainly earned your membership with a great looking watch. The strap looks good but I must admit to a preference for the Jubilee Bracelet.

    Cracking watch, wear in great health ;)

    Can you clarify why you asked for Steinhart to verify the GMT mechanism, as per their website it is a ETA 2893.2 premium, were you doubting this, and what did they reply, asking because I too am looking for a Steinhart purchase but want an ETA version.

    Thanks! As far as the GMT question is concerned, many WUS forum members have brought up issues with the GMT mechanism. Just use the search term GMT and you will see...

    For those interested in this watch like me and wondering what the GMT issue is it would appear that the Titanium release suffered from a misaligned GMT hand, ie when the normal hour hand was on the hour the GMT hand would not align with its corresponding 24hr mark. Have not seen any complaints about the 39mm release so perhaps it was just a QC issue on the earlier titanium releases, Steinhart resolved the issue under warranty (free shipping) where is did occur.
