Here, I take a look at my new Steinhart GMT Ocean I. My first impressions are that it's a high-quality timepiece with one shortcoming: The clasp on the bracelet. Watch the video for details.

From Neil's website: Steinhart GMT Ocean 1 Black Red automatic divers watch. The movement is a Swiss made ETA 2893-2 automatic winding movement which is the industry standard for Swiss and German made GMT automatic watches. It is a 25 jewel movement with Nivarox spring balance and Incabloc shock protection. The functions include hours, minutes and seconds displayed by the central sweep hand, and second time zone GMT hand. The second hand is a hack hand which stops when setting the time for accurate time synchronization. It is 30 ATM which is about 300 meters so is fully water proof. It comes on a good quality steel bracelet with fliplock safety clasp. Steinhart reference number is T0202. Dimensions are as follows. Width is 42 mm excluding the crown, 46 mm including the crown, lug to lug is 50 mm and thickness is 14.5 mm.

The lug width is 22 mm and the weight of the watch is 190g. IMO the weight and balance of this watch is perfect. It's very comfortable on wrist. Only my titanium Seiko SBDC007 is more comfortable (with the exception of my Rolex Day-Date and my Omega speedmaster but they are both smaller 38mm watches).

Special Note regarding the bracelet issue I talked about in the review: I took the bracelet loose from the clasp and put the curved folding parts in a vice, flattened them quite a bit, and now it's much better. see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/areaguid...
