|Steinhart Ocean 39 Marine Black - Gnomon Exclusive
As the sold-out Ocean 39 Marine Black Limited edition, with our first ever signature branded onto the dial of a timepiece, had been an indelible mark in history for Gnomon Watches. Although those 200 pieces fitted with hesalite crystal are gone now, we don’t want to disappoint our community and watch lovers. Therefore, we are presenting the on-going version of the Ocean 39 Marine Black, sans the double signage and the vintage elements.
Listen to the heartbeat of the ocean with the reliable automatic ETA 2824-2 / SW 200 élaboré movement that powers this Swiss-made timepiece. Operating at 28,800 bph (4 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities, this calibre is built with 25 jewels and a power reserve of approximately 40 hours. This manual-wind movement also allows the case of the watch to be thinner and lighter, fitting comfortably on most wrist sizes.
Made from 316L stainless steel, the case of this timepiece flaunts a satin-brushed finish on the top of its lugs and polished sides, mirroring the finishing of dive watches back in the 1960s. This 39mm case has a 47mm lug to lug and a height of 14mm. The Ocean 39 Marine Black also features a classic diver bezel, with a luminous pip at its 12 o'clock. This brilliant black bezel has deep and clean knurling on its side for excellent grip during operation. Polished to perfection, this unidirectional stainless steel bezel displays all the grandeur of this watch in 120 clicks.

Super-LumiNova glows blue in the dark
The squared markers elevate in readability with no burnt brown colours that once akin to the patina that forms on bronze watch cases. Declared by the “L Swiss L” nomenclature at the bottom, this conventional white colour adds modern appeal to this timepiece and is caused by the Super-LumiNova painted onto the markers and handset that blue in the dark.
Furthermore, the Ocean 39 Marine Black has a screw down Steinhart signed crown that allows for a water resistance of 300m. In replacement of the hesalite crystal on the L.E version, the exclusive Marine Black now gets a flat sapphire crystal with the date magnifying-cyclop. The glass material is a modern upgrade from those acrylic material fitted on the military watches of the French Navy in the 70s . This sturdy crystal feels more robust with better legibility due to the additional anti-reflective coating within - a practical touch for watch enthusiasts.

The Ocean 39 Marine Black comes on a satin-brushed oyster bracelet with screw links and a flip-lock. Tapered from 20mm to a slim 16mm, this stainless steel bracelet blends in with and extends its case and bezel, made with the same material, to form a single perfect timepiece. It also brings out the splendeur of this watch, gracing it with a timeless sophistication that is truly one of a kind. This metal bracelet does not typically come with military-issued watches in the past, but it tops off the sleek look of this watch so well that we just had to include it!
This prime timepiece exudes a sense of adventure and is one of the rarest, rawest and at the same time most handsome tool watches that will satisfy your collector’s needs. Reminiscent of military dive watches in the 70s, the exclusive Steinhart Ocean 39 Marine Black stays fervour for collectors. And just like a snowflake, each timepiece is different in its own special way. Presenting la couronne de l'océan, la montre pour toi (the crown of the ocean, the watch for you).
