The most striking feature of the Steinhart Ocean One Vintage Chronograph is probably its dial. Matt black with contrasting subdials and inner ring with fine, red accents, surmounted by a high domed sapphire crystal with a double layer of anti-reflective coating on its inside. Framed in this breathtaking sight by a black aluminium inlay with tachymeter scale, which, in conjunction with the chronograph complication, can be used for measuring velocities. The Steinhart Ocean One Vintage Chronograph is powered by the Dubois Dépraz DD 2020, a Swiss automatic movement which is based on the decorated ETA 2824-2 TOP with its gilded Steinhart rotor, which can all be admired through the sapphire crystal window in the screw-down stainless steel case back. Also screwed down is the large, well gripping crown with its discreet red accent as well as the two pushers, which allows for water resistance of up to 10 ATM.
Irrespective of these technical highlights, the look of this Chrono with its partially polished, partially satin-finished stainless steel case radiates the irresistible flair of the wild 60s. Whether you wear the Steinhart Ocean One Vintage Chronograph on the finely brushed bracelet, that tapers down to 18mm towards the folding buckle, or on a leather or synthetic watch strap, the sporty charm of this watch will be difficult to resist.
