A New Arrival(finally!!)..

Post by Thunder1 » September 21st 2020, 4:51pm

Finally, it shows up!!(# 193 of 200)..a recently released Steinhart Ocean 39 Marine Blue L.E....initial impressions are: 1)the bezel is pretty easy to rotate and the clasp isn't too terribly sticky, which are welcome departures from many Steinys in this price range, 2)the blue dial is a medium shade of blue under direct light and a much darker shade of blue in poor lighting situations, and 3)I think it looks fine w/ the optional jubilee bracelet, but I'm curious as to what it would look like on a tan canvas strap...here are a few pics..so far, so good..

I like it. Hell, I really do. Reckon that's as close as it gets these days to watches with the retailer's brand on the dial.

Not sure why'd you want to replace that bracelet with a canvas strap, I'd say it looks pretty damn cool as it is.

Fantastic! That color is striking! I tend to do the same with bracelets eventually replacing them with a strap of some kind... primarily just because you can!

Nice pick - enjoy!
