I have several Steinharts and couple more expensive brands like Tudor and Breitling. I love my Steinharts and they are durable and keep great time. However, I do notice the little differences when stepping up in price. My more expensive brands are a little better regulated and usually around 1 second per day. The Steinharts are still great at usually around 3 seconds per day. However, my Steinharts are consistent so you could probably have a watchmaker regulate it closer to 1 second per day. I also think my Tudor Pelagos (in house movement) would stand up slightly better to shocks than my Steinharts because the Tudor has a full balance bridge and freesprung balance.
