Amazing value in this classic Dive Watch. This is not a homage watch. It is a truly original design, beautifully executed by Steinhart. This watch is a rare combination of quality, beauty, and practicality. The Lume is amazing! The double dome saphire crystal is designed in such a way that at certain angles it flashes a blue sparkle that is, in my opinion, spectacular. Truly mesmerizing.

This piece is from the second generation of this model, with an upgraded movement. Much more expensive watches (such as Omega, Breitling, etc.) base their movements on this one. Being a Titanium watch it is a joy to wear. Some people complain that it feels too light. But, to me that is a great plus. It is certainly heavy enough. Talking about comfort, it comes prefitted to a 7" wrist, with two additional full links, and two additional half links! The links can be added and removed easily with a small screw driver. I wish all other bracelets came this way.

The watch is in near mint condition. It has a couple little desk diving marks on the clasp and bracelet that you can see in the pictures below. Also, normally invisible, there are some slight marks of the inside of the lugs from taking the spring bars off and on. That's it. As you can see in the pictures, it is outstandingly clean. And it is working great. Comes with original inner and outter box, as well as tag and manual.
