Default Ocean 1 Bronze

New release. The ocean 1 will now come in a bronze case. Black dial. Bronze case. Looks more gold than bronze to me. Way too shiny. Comes with a ETA movement like most of the ocean 1. Not sure how I feel about it. Also comes on an ISO. Can't add a picture doing this from my phone on court.

Needs some patina and a canvas strap.

The shine goes away with age and weathering.

Looks like an integrated strap, so that leaves me out right there.

Also, I just don't get the whole "Bronze" thing? Why would I want some green tainted looking wrist watch on my arm, that looked like it was just recovered from being underwater in the Ocean for 20 years?

Just don't get it, I would have to break out a can of Brasso and clean the thing up every week.

Not really an integrated strap. More of a custom strap that goes with the end link. Most likely you'll be able to remove the end link and pop on any strap you'd like.

I thought the same thing about Bronze too, until I saw one in the metal. I think coupled with the right design, the whole aged look paired with a really nice brown leather strap is actually really cool now.

I'm waiting for a bronze model that sings to me, before I jump on one.

I'm sure it will look better with actual pics instead of this pic. But the bronze is too gold and I would need to change straps.

There seems to be a rise with bronze watches. If done correctly I do enjoy them. Bronze is not usually a shinny color like that. Being so shinny it hurts the look in my opinion. Don't look at it in the sun. May go blind from the reflection if the sun off the case lol.

I like the bronze bezel look especially after some wear. This one interests me but as someone else pointed out, some real life images are needed

I think the pictures are horrible, hopefully the actual watch won't look like this (and it probably does not)...

Bronze isn't my thing but the photos don't give a very accurate portrayal of this watch. A patina will develop over time and make the watch look better, although I still haven't seen a bronze watch I would actually wear.

I'm interested to see how this watch ages. Typically the more rugged tool watches are done in brass or bronze and the Ocean One has always struck me as more dressy and maybe not as well suited to the patina trend. Thoughts?

You have to go directly to Steinhart if you want new.

Steinhart direct is always the best bet usually. Some people have had issues with them directly. However I know several people on here including myself that have ordered without issue from them direct.

Gnomon is so fast and great customer service. Steinhart direct is much slower but with the echange rate so good now its hard to pass on Strinhart direct.

I agree. It looks great new then morphs into something else over time. I'll pass.

Ennebi does it right IMO. It is preference really. I just don't like the shiny finish. Just ask them to perform the patina process prior to receiving the watch. They do an excellent job.
