Initial impressions are as follows. The black aluminum bezel turns easily, securely, w/ little or no back play(so Steinhart must be raising their game)..and the 'bottle cap' edges provide for a very secure grip..the 22mm(measured at the lugs) oyster bracelet tapers nicely down to the clasp..it is comfortable, but this clasp is the same sticky clasp we have all become accustomed to. The 42mm SS case fits my wrist well, despite the flat lugs..this is welcome news, as I've been avoiding 42mm Steinys up to now because I feared an uncomfortable fit..so, this means another couple of Steinys are now on my radar!!..
Another welcome sight is the black dial. Thankfully, its's not the 'grey-black' color of my OVM39..instead, it is an inky black, ala my Ocean One 39 black ceramic watch..and coupled with the 'normal' colored hour markers, it is a pleasant look..so, if you guys are lucky enough to already own one, you know what I mean..for the rest of us Steiny collectors, I heartedly recommend picking one up..OK, here's a pic of mine..good luck hunting folks!!..
Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...
