Things are truly getting exciting here as Steinhart brings some attractive vintage elements to their Ocean One 39 line up, presenting a retro two-tone look that exhibits a whole lot of finesse. Harnessing an iconic dial type from back in the 1950s to 1970s, this is a riveting trait that will certainly capture the interests of ardent vintage watch collectors.
Reflecting on Steinhart’s exceptional quality when it comes to watchmaking, the stainless steel case of the Steinhart Ocean 39 GMT Two-tone Chocolate 2 is to a very high standard in terms of case execution and finishing. The case of the Steinhart is made from 316L stainless steel. Features a satin brushed finish on the top of the lugs and polished sides of the case.

The unique two-tone design is seen on its steel bezel and screw-down crown, treated in a bright yellow gold accent, only to be completed by its bi-tone jubilee bracelet for a mix of elegance. The 39mm case measures 47mm from lug-to-lug, resulting in an extremely comfortable fit on most wrist sizes while displaying a bold and elegant wrist presence attributed to its brilliant gold tones synonymous with vintage 70s timepieces.
Starting from the gold bezel on the Ocean 39 GMT Two-tone Chocolate 2 is a classic diver design. Cladding a two-tone aluminum bezel insert to evoke a pleasing old-school charm, the deep warm brown and pale light brown colours illustrate a slightly aged appearance, adding to the strong character of the piece. The 120-click 24 hour GMT bezel clicks positively into position with deep, precise grooves.
But that's not the only highlight of this two-tone retro style dive watch. A stunning design of yesteryear’s charm, combined with technology and materials of today, the golden screw-down crown is located at 3 o’clock protected by two crown guards, and is good for a capable water resistant rating of 300m. The Ocean 39 GMT Two-tone Chocolate 2 comes with a flat sapphire crystal with inner anti-reflective coating on the inside, with an additional magnifier at the date display position to enhance the date reading.

Underneath the sapphire crystal lies a gorgeous chocolate brown sunburst dial adorned with a set of special, slightly raised hour indices with SuperLuminova luminous paint applied only at the tip. This unique hallmark of the Ocean 39 GMT Two-tone Chocolate 2 sets it apart from the rest of the collection with marginally smaller indices in comparison with other Ocean One 39 models, establishing a distinctive look of vintage 70s dive watches.
The Ocean 39 GMT Two-tone Chocolate 2 is driven by the tried and tested Swiss-made Sellita SW330 élaboré automatic GMT movement. Essentially on par with the ever-reliable ETA 2893-2 movement, this capable movement operates at 28,800 bph (4 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities. This 25 jewel calibre is built with a healthy power reserve of approximately 42 hours.
The Ocean 39 GMT Two-tone Chocolate 2 comes with a satin brushed stainless steel jubilee bracelet with screw links and fliplock. The ritzy finishing follows through the two-tone stainless steel bracelet where the middle links are in yellow gold tone, accentuating the luxurious touch of the popular 70s two-tone sports watches.
Overall, the Steinhart Ocean 39 GMT Two-tone Chocolate 2 exhibits exceptional value with alluring vintage appeal. For the price, you get a Swiss Made watch with a Swiss movement, a unique two-tone 300m diver watch with SEL jubilee bracelet and an overall well finished sturdy watch. This was before not achievable until Steinhart arrived and also probably the reason why Steinhart has quite a huge following although being established only back in 2001.
