    Steinhart 39mm GMT Premium Diver

    Has anyone got any views or experience of this watch? Iím in the process of moving some watches on to make room for my first GMT, Iíd love the Tudor BB GMT but itís out of my price range. Squale is another option but the dreaded customs charges bump up the cost for me here in the UK. So Iíve been looking at Steinhart. Seems to have some originality and a good price/spec ratio. I may have a look around to see if I can get a pre owned model. Any thoughts?

    For the price, Steinharts are great watches, and great service. But if you want the Tudor, save, be patient. The Steinhart is like 1/4 of the way there...

    I’ve not owned that particular model but I have owned the gmt Pepsi 39mm and the explorer diver 39mm, they’re very well made watches, I can 100% recommend them based on my experience

    Own 7 Steinharts, including a vintage GMT with the same 2893 movement. All the watches have been excellent, accurate performers and well worth the money.

    Thanks for this I may just do that. Thinking of trading my Seamaster against the Tudor to get me part way there.

    Thanks all. Iíll look at saving options for the Tudor versus going with a shorter term Steinhart which who knows maybe a keeper...

    Steinhart 39mm GMT Premium Diver

    Iíve had one since the time of release.

    Iíve always regarded it as one of the best options in the affordable space owing to its

    -overall good looks and functionality;

    -unique aesthetic departures from its Rolex inspiration (e.g., bezel font, certain dial details and date window placement, and handset);

    -restrained size (e.g., 39mm but long Steinhart lugs that accommodate those who prefer a tad larger, thin, female bracelets that taper from 20mm to 16mm at the clasp);

    -compelling specs (e.g., Swiss, sapphire, ceramic, 120 click, 500m WR); and

    -price point.

    Hence Iíve always been surprised it hasnít become more ubiquitous. (So take my praise with a grain of salt because it may be subjective.)

    IMO the only drawbacks are its

    -bezel is hard to grip and unidirectional;

    -long, fairly straight Steinhart-style lugs; and

    -name being impossible to remember (Steinhart Ocean 39 GMT Premium 500).

    While it may be hearsay, I prefer it to the Tudor BB GMT because of its more modest size and value proposition (e.g., much cheaper, better specs on some fronts). Some may also prefer the Batman color way to the Pepsi color way.

    Hereís the thread dedicated to it:

    OP go to "Watchrecon.com"& see for yourself how much you loose on resale if you don't like the Tudor.If you are swayed by fan boys save & buy USED,you pay retail you gamble a lot of $ you will like it.My $ says stick with the Steinhart.There is a dedicated Sub Forum where you can really dig into Steinhart..

    I have a Steinhart Ocean Vintage GMT and love it. Regarding Squale, would you still get hit with fees if you ordered from Gnomon Watches? I caution everyone regarding Steinharts that they are GREAT but the straight lugs might not be a great fit for everyone.
