Having held both Ocean One, and OVM in my hands, I can safely say that I 40% agree with you.

The vast majoirty of Steinharts range need not exist, they're good watches, but you can only pay so much Homage until you start to just outright insult the original.

The OVM is a damned nice watch for the price, you're going to have a hard time finding a better one outside of the used market. My own real peeve with the OVM is the end-centre link, it is squared off, doesn't fit too well with the endlinks and produce an aesthetic flaw, which can be quite annoying. But a strap soon fixes this.

Steinhart could do well if they get the right creative minds in to design decent dials, should they remain on ETA's good side and keep receiving 2824's that is.

I will never understand it either, the vitriol against Steinhart all over the internet amazes me. I mean lets compare >>56032522 to its closest Steinhart comparison. Notice how they look quite similar its because the Seiko is a Rolex Copy. Okay lets compare them:

Seiko Shogun:
-Seiko movement, made in Japan 23 6r15
-21500 bph
-mineral glass
-Seiko in house chinkmade Lumibrite
-200m rated ISO 6425
-shit band
-assembled in Malaysia
-resale $400-$500 via ebay

Steinhart OVM
-Swiss ETA 2824-2 custom
-28800 bph
-domed sapphire with AR coating
-lume provided by Super Luminova
-300m rated DIN 8310

That's not fair to either the Shogun or the Steinhart.

The clasp on the Steinhart is pretty poor by direction comparison to the exceptional bracelet (Considering the price of the watch) but by all accounts, the Shogun has a pretty solid bracelet.

I'm surprised there's people who don't know about lumibrite being a Seiko product.

Also surprised to see someone who hasn't seen enough of it to try and act like it's not clearly better.

Tritium is less bright than lumibrite and even superluminova after a recent charge. It takes a while for normal lumed paint to lose enough energy for it to be more dim than tritium, and dives are generally not long affairs.

Also, I know I've posted a lot about lume before but:

If you're new to this discussion, as far as I know Seiko hasn't sold any Lumibrite to Citizen to use on their watches.

Afaik any claim of citizen lumibrite has been by retailers. That or possibly by regular internet people who often like to lump seiko in with citizen in a vague implication that Japanese companies are 'the same' or something while swiss companies are special. For the anon that quoted wikipedia they mention nothing for Citizen in the references, and I can't find anything from Citizen's current or past watch announcements mentioning lumibrite.

If you've followed any of the news about lume, you may have heard of the development of Tritec's Super-Luminova 'X1' which is suppose to be fantastic, particularly in how long it's suppose to maintain a bright glow and is being developed along with their 'japanese partners.'

If only it had any of the vaunted Sinn technologies, or I'd have snatched one in a heartbeat. At least it has a top grade movement.

I've just bought pic related for $470 (used with box & papers near mint condition - bought new a couple of months ago). How'd I do?

You did pretty good. I'm not a fan of Roman numerals, or classic script, or a jewel count on the dial, or alligator leather, but it's a solid watch.

And no £500 watch that is so monstrously outclassed by one £200 cheaper can be considered acceptable either.

Both Sumo and OVM are great watches, but to try and compare them is pointless, in the end it comes down to what you like to see and what you are willing to spend. To simply say "X is better than Y at this pricepoint" is purely opinionated and is no foundation for a discussion or argument.

You don't like the false patina, fine, don't buy an OVM.
I don't like the Sumo, I think it's hideous with obnoxious styling. So I won't buy it.

Any idea how to moderately weaken a mainspring? I have a vintage movement that suffers from rebanking because of a modern replacement mainspring that's too strong.

Heating is the first idea I get, but not really controllable as to the extent of the weakness. More so a shot in the dark.

Let's face it. If you knew shit, you wouldn't be asking for help with it.
We're trying to help by throwing out suggestions, upon which you should then research to see the results.

The only way you can guarantee a fix without going over the top for this shit, is just to get a weaker mainspring, while the run time will also be reduced, you will not suffer the effects of rebanking.

I recall discussing it with a soviet watchmaker while he was working on one of my slav watches that they used to slightly chop some of it off, heat it for a while and slightly bend it to proper fit the barrel. Could be because they were given universally big replacement mainsprings though.

Either way, quit being a (terrible) kike and buy a new lower tension mainspring.

Ferrari has that whole owner's club situation, where you have to already own one to even be considered as a human being by the salesman. But quality-wise, Patek seems like a good fit.

Lamborghini would be a brand for posers, watches that are expensive and look nice, but have no horological interest.
