Hi folks,

I hope this isn't old news (didn't find it on the first page, so hopefully it isn't) -

the O1 Vintage Red now has a black dial again, but this time with vintage vanilla lume, not the green one like the original OOVR...

and....

it features the band spanking new 22/18 STEEL(!) bracelet!

https://www.steinhartwatches.de/en/diver-watch/ocean-one-vintage-red-687.html

just ordered one. Will be my 4th OOVR (My first one was V1.0, still with acrylic crystal glass....). I've got it bad :)

That's how my first one was like, back in 2012 (green hue not that visible though, iPhone 4s was used in artificial lighting):

Wonder how long it will take for this new bracelet to be available in the "accessories"....


Cheers!

Dennis

Dec1968, thats the one. Thanks for uploading the pictures!

Already just received the order confirmation (system generated though). I do hope to get it before weekend, but experience tells me not to hold my breath... ;)

Will post pics if wanted.

I had just seen this earlier on facebook. I also would love the 22-18 bracelet. glad to see they got rid of the grey face. I love my vintage red but the wide bracelet gives me the sh#ts.

Hello all! I just got back from the local Gnomon boutique in Singapore! Apologies, but I couldn't wait to ghost the bezel before taking a photo :p

As you can see, it is much darker than the OVM 2.5! Additionally, the clasp on the new 22/18 bracelet is better than the old one! On the old clasp, it took a lot of effort to open it, but this newer clasp is easier to open! Less ruined fingernails :p

What did you use to "ghost" the bezel?

I'm going to show another Vintage watch - the Tisell Submersible. I added a different bracelet (had to seriously modify the hollow end links to fit) - but I really love this watch. It's 40mm with Sub C dimensions.


I put it on a NATO strap as well to see what it looks like.


I show you this to compare to the new Vintage Steinhart. This is close to what the v1 looked like with the lume.

And/or reduce the size to 39 or 40mm. I have the grey dial iteration and love it. Seeing this new version really has my trigger finger itchy. Call me what you want, but I'm holding out hope that these rumors about smaller ocean models are true and I'll find one I love more than the new OVR

I agree 100% and that's why I bought the Tisell. $220 is a heckuva value.

Tisell's usually are! I have a white dialed tisell with the 9015, great watch for a stupidly low $195

I assume bleach, but I'd also like to know the details: how long, how did you dip it, etc. Why? Because it looks AMAZING!!!!

Also, will bleach damage anything on the watch, such as the seals?
Yes, I used liquid bleach! I dipped it in for about one and a half minutes :D

I think prolonged exposure to bleach will damage the seals, but for 90 seconds I think I'll be fine (I hope!)

So did you leave the bezel on the watch and just flip it upside down into a cup of bleach, that was barely filled so it just hits the bezel?

It's kind of funny to think about how I've progressed on this:

When I first got the watch -"Man, I wish it was black like the picture"
After a couple of weeks - " You know, I kinda like the gray dial"
Now - "I'm glad I bought mine before they changed back"

Don't get me wrong, the black dial looks great, but I've really come to appreciate the gray dial.
