Leaving aside the whole homage thing--admittedly pretty difficult for some people to do--Steiny makes some nice watches, particularly, as Mr. Co says above, for the dough. Like Seiko Monsters, they seem to hold residual value pretty well, probably since they're pretty cheap to begin with.

The OVM leaves me cold for some reason, and maybe to others, too, since there seem to be plenty of them for sale on 'Recon at any given moment.

For those of you who don't know he's the guy who bought a Rolex Air King and accidentally
left the watch on the roof of his car and the original seller wanted it back. Well according
to him (Bruce) he had forgotten all about it and the watch was destroyed he then goes on YT and basically
begged people to chip in for his loss. Well word spread like a bad rash on a midget in a porno and
he was basically gifted a $3,500 Bell and Ross by Watchuwant.com. But some believe the watch was never
destroyed and it was just a clever scam to get someone or a group of people to send him money.
I've never felt like I truly belonged here and I believe it's time I move on.

I think these guys give you a nice watch for the money and I thought about a couple- A Triton with an upper grade 2824 (forgot which one -elabore I think, it had the Gen stripes as I recall), and an Ocean 1 GMT caught my eye, but ultimately they weren't anything I couldn't live without for one reason or another.

I don't like the OP watch also, either.

Sharp looking watch, but too similar to my Precista PRS-82.

Have owned three or four Steinhart watches. Well made for the $ but I have never been able to bond with them.
