Steinhart Watch Drop?

Would anyone else like to see a drop from Steinhart pilots watches? Those things are beautiful and hover around $400 for a swiss movement, you can't beat them and I bet there could be a pretty good deal there as they really only sell online. Man, I just think these things look perfect and you can't beat that value...you have to start looking at Stowa or IWC to get there and that is in the $1500+ range

I've love a 44 mm titanium model with a sterile dial.
Sounds good.
Of course.

I'd love to see a diver from them that didn't have any of the "Ocean One" text or other lines on the bottom of the watch. How they use 4 different fonts on the watch face is really off-putting to me.

Good watch...
So Steinharts to a lot of custom and collabs. Seems like a good fit for Drop given they do so many collabs. Lots of Gnomon X Steinhart only models. With the new 39mm platform for Steiny divers, would be good for Drop to do a 39mm vintage ocean GMT or a 39mm Pan am GMT...
I discover Steinhart not a long time ago. A friend have some Watch from this brand. Good quality. I decide to follow and to buy them  2 Watchs, a flyer and a diver. If Mass Drop give us opportunity why not buy here.
Not into the steinhart....hope they Will do it on the Laco brand instead .....those are one of the first brands to make pilots watches together with IWC etc.

Not likely; either way. As I recently discovered, if you want a new one, the only option is to pay full MSRP--even used, they hold their value better than most watches in that price range. When you get right down to it, they're actually a pretty good value priced as-is; meaning one could certainly pay more for the same quality Steinhart provides.

Very nice! You’re gonna love it
Sorry guys, but I don't see this happening. 1) Steinhart doesn't really do sales. 2) The secondary market on eBay goes for almost the retail price, or higher. 3) They tell any & every youtube watch reviewer flat-out that they don't participate in providing (even returnable) watches for review. 4) Finally, they're doing even more limited production runs than ever. Odds of them "cheapening" their brand by dumping units is less than slim. Positive side is there are few watches out there providing more value per dollar. I'd say just buy the model you like at retail,and enjoy.

Bought my 1st Steiny a few years back and it still keeps great time (within COSC limits) So impressed with both the timekeeping and the build quality I also bought a Pepsi dial Ocean 44 GMT and now I own 5 of them.

Just give me more options of weman and watches, thank you for being out and ahead of the crowd on this one. Stay cool, psichosteve.

Mine keeps cosc also. Great timepieces.
I would like to see more Steinhart and other pilot watches in the 1,000$ and under range.
I like their divers better. For pilot watches I would go for Laco
I created a poll for Steinhart divers a a month ago or so, still waiting for Massdrop to make it happen. Divers or pilot - these are really good budget watches. I would get Ocean One or similar diver - 100%. My 50th anniversary green Submariner is not a good option to go fishing, people call me crazy for wearing 10K watch while cutting bunker and clams. That is where Steinhart come in. Great, reliable watch for a very reasonable price. Can anyone from Massdrop post a comment or something to let everyone know if we should wait here or turn to eBay? Thx
STEINHART ROCKS!!!!

I love my Steinhart O1 GMT (ceramic bezel)! The quality, attention to detail, and value is out of this world! Just a beautiful piece. I have this on on an Erika's Original MN strap. It is one of the most comfortable bands I own and really works well with the military aesthetic/James Bond diver thing. Check out Erika's stuff is AWESOME! Plus Erika is a wonderful super nice woman! https://erikasoriginals.com/ (not a paid advertising they just rock!)
Interested!!
Please
Steinhart designs good watches, though they source the actual manufacturing to Grovana. I have a NAV B-Uhr Type A 44mm, plus an Ocean One Titanium 500m and they are very nice.
The thing is, Steinhart already sells online and, if I remember correctly, the only authorized reseller is Gnomon. As such, it's gonna be very hard to get a Steinhart drop going because there are only two sources where MD could get units from.

Hey there, Sadly, the Ocean One Titanium does not have a proprietary coating like the ones offered by Seiko (Diashield) or Citizen (Duratec and Super Titanium), just regular titanium with a brushed finish. Mine has scratches from careless strap changes, but I'm sure it can be refinished easier than a Seiko or Citizen with coatings. With that said, I have a Citizen Navihawk for the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) with Duratec and it does give it the appearance of stainless steel. The coating's also durable; it's the oldest watch in my collection and it only has one small nick on the clasp.

I've heard good things about the performance of the various titanium coatings. There's a Casio JDM Oceanus that I'm also interested in.
I would be thrilled to see this Steinhart Nav B-Uhr 44 premium automatik. It is already a GREAT buy for an ETA 2892-A2 Elabore' movement Pilot watch with lots of other features.

I have the Nav B-Uhr manual wind in bronze and I love it. I’m looking at their sterile type B flieger in titanium.

That's the Steinhart in the middle between a Zelos Chroma bronze and a Maranez Rawai brass. The finish was a a little "satin-y" at first but it developed a nice darkish patina over time.

Love to see the Ocean Vintage Military.
Yes, please
Seriously, why hasn't this happened yet? I need a Steinhart Nav B in my life.
