Steinhart is one of those brands that have been on the periphery of my awareness, and I’ve (admittedly) not taken a close look at their wares. Some news crossed my desk of a new model, and I thought I’d take a closer look, and bring it to your attention.
The model in question is the Triton 30ATM Dual Time (Ref T0219), and is firmly in the sport watch camp – though the dial is a bit more refined (at least to my eye) than I’m used to seeing for the segment. Before we get into that, though, let’s have a quick run-down of the specs:
- Movement: ETA 2893-2 automatic
- Case: 45mm stainless steel (14mm thick) with 24mm lugs
- Crystal: flat sapphire, AR coating on the underside
- Bezel: 120 click, uni-directional; lumed
- WR: 300m
- Strap: 24mm calf leather with rubber coating and contrast stitching
So, as you can see, some really nice specs to the watch. From a styling perspective, I like how the contrast stitching on the strap (in yell0w) picks up the yellow used on the skeleton GMT hand. I also thing that skeltonizing that hand is an intriguing choice. Still quite easy to pick out, given it’s color, but it carries less visual weight when you’re just looking for the regular time.
With the dial, I mentioned that it’s got a classier feel to it than a lot of sport watches seem to have. I’m not sure if it’s due to the concentric grooves, the date display being at 6 o’clock, or something else completely, but I like the design.
And last, but certainly not least, I really dig the fact that the bezel is lumed. As I review more watches (not that this is a true review) with diver bezels, I really appreciate them being lumed. Not that it’s necessary, but it makes it more interesting than a similar watch with a non-lumed bezel. And hey, once the lights go out, I like having that extra bit of a light show.
If you’d like to pick one up for yourself, you can head directly over to the Steinhart page. Insire the EU, it’ll set you back 490 EUR; for those of us in the US, you’ll only need 412 EUR (or about $530 at current conversion rates). Yet another interesting option to add in to that $500 range, if you ask me.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
