    Seebataillon GMT

    I recently bought this watch and really like it. Very lightweight and super comfortable. The only issue is I can't get the rubber strap off. Screws don't come out and seem stuck. I sprayed some WD40 but no luck. Oh well. Rubber strap is super comfortable so I'll live with it.

    Do you not need to secure both sides and turns both screw ends at same time to undo? My Fortis B52 was like that. Nice watch. Considered one but just too big for me

    I finally got the strap off. That was a tough one. Time to play switcheroo with some different straps.

    I tried a thick leather strap on mine and it looked awesome.
    But the way the original rubber strap hugs the case is so nice, that I put that one back on.

    Yet I still feel the urge for a nice looking leather strap on that Ti case.
    Looking forward to see what you come up with!

    Yeah the rubber strap is definitely one of the most comfortable I have owned.

    This watch is on my radar, but have not had a chance to put one on. Not worried about size because I have a 225mm wrist so I am glad to hear the praise of the OEM rubber strap. I think the design and origin story is great.

    FYI, this is not technically a diver. It is a maritime operations watch commissioned by the German Naval Force Protection Battalion - name: Seebatallion; motto: "From land to sea - from sea to land" whose remit ranges from relief, rescue and evacuation missions to the protection of sea routes, ships, ports, and strategically important positions against asymmetric threats and terrorist attacks. They also carry out the reconnaissance, identification, and control of ordnance on water and land. Kind of a combination of the Coast Guard and Navy Seals. It has a bi-directional bezel for event timing and a GMT complication because international shipping paperwork is all done using GMT time just like for air transportation. And being a titanium case it is very lightweight and tough. Very cool watch in my opinion.

    Did you buy it new or pre-owned? And, where did you buy it as there are very few ADs in the USA for Mühle Glashütte.

    Okay, sorry but I did it again: I put a Hirsch padded leather strap on the Seebataillon. I love how the lug shape now stands out.
    Happy with the result 😎

    Can you give some thoughts about the watch?
    I have some questions before pulling the trigger on one myself. What is the bezel like? I've heard that a lot of people dislike it, if you could speak about that, I would be grateful.

    Bought mine medio 2016. Bezel is a countdown bezel, other than that I did not experience any issues.
