Want to start by saying Hi.... I'm planning on buying a new watch. I feel like i need to start adding to my small collection. I have done my research and am pretty set on the Debaufre Ocean 1, reviews on this site are great. My main ordeal is I need to try it on before I buy it. Anyone know where I can do this around the Chicago area?

Haha, I'm not sure if they sell anywhere besides their website. But from my extensive even compulsive time on this forum, I've not heard but 1-2 non-positive statements. I wouldn't say negative because either the issue was very minor or Debaufre/Steinhart fixed it quickly. Welcome to the forum and post often!

Well they offer 2 sizes. I think they offer a 42mm and a 39mm. I'm thinking the submariner is closer to the 39mm size, personally I'd go for the 42mm but that's just me.

:oops: I was only being a little sarcastic in my above post. Truth is, if you are looking at the 39mm model, a Rolex Sub will give you a great comparison (at least regarding size).

Best, Mike W.

I just purchased the Debaufre GMT Ocean-1, which I believe is the exact same size as the Ocean-1. My wrist is about 6.75" and the 42mm watch is a great fit, while being a nice solid watch and not looking too big on my wrist. Hopefully, this will help. I will also say that, in person, it looks smaller than all of the wrist shots here on the forum.

I have been totally thrilled with the two Debaufre watches that I have and there's a Steinhart on the way as well. Great watches, very reasonably priced and extremely well done. I have no doubt the Ocean 1 has the same level of quality and I'm sure you will not be disappointed. Go for the 42mm though...

I have the Steinhart Ocean 1, a really great watch (42mm) on my 6.75" wrist.

Yeah... Definitely going to purchase this watch. I'll wait a week for another one to appear on ebay. If nothing, I will be left with no choice but to pay the full price. And yes I will get the 42mm if anyone was wondering. Thanks for all the info. Really helps when buying from a company you know little about.

Also if someone could fill me in on their return policy, not that i will likely return it, that would be great. I checked throughout the website and it provides me with the terms and condition of the website. This contains nothing about debaufre return policy. I also called them to get this information. But interestingly enough they make you leave your name and number so they can call you. That's a first for me.

I own a Steinhart Ocean 1 and love it. I read on another forum that there may be a S+D sale coming soon. Keep your eyes on the website.
SmoothJazz enjoy the watch!
