Hey guys...I was just checking out Steinhart's new TRITON 100 ATM Stahl on the updated Steinhart website.  I have always liked the past Triton (Debaufre and Steinhart varieties).

I'm noticing that the NEW models from Debaufre and Steinhart are taking a deliberate departure from each other in the design area.

I absolutely LOVE hearteyes.gifhearteyes.gifhearteyes.gif this new Steinhart TRITON 100 ATM Stahl, and frankly I'm struggling to find anything that I don't like.

Man...I REALLY like the whole package here...from the case finishes/design, dial design, lume treatment, hands, deployment strap...WOW!!!!  I think Steinhart has hit one out of the park here.

Some pics to drool over below........Would love to hear other opinions.

That is pretty sharp looking!  Maybe a little busy/flashy, but really nice design.

Chris, thanks for posting this. hand6.gif

I think it's a great watch with sufficient features for serious enthusiasts to consider. Reminds me a little bit though of the forthcoming Aqua Luna 2, except that that one presents itself with a dominant blue dial color markings and accents (if the last thread on the AL2 were to be the final product).

Overall a good, good snap even at E650.00 considering the HEV, 1,000m rating and black DLC....which is the most difficult to achieve on DLC. Usually, DLC is just a shade or 2 lighter than jet black but Steinhart may have scored a home run on the total black variant.

But I have to agree with Brice that the dial is a little too busy particularly with the addition of the inner broken orange ring. Maybe without that inner ring, the watch would posture itself a little more seriously. Somehow though the value of that ring comes up when dark sets in and lume takes over.

Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me, that discrete orange seal around the seams of the HEV is an unusual and remarkable touch on design.

Not very comfortable having a deployant on a diver and would prefer the usual tang-type buckle or popular double snap safety buckle.

Would I consider buying this on a scale of 1 to 10? Yes....I'd score it a 7 and maybe my craving for this watch would increase to a 9 if only it were thicker than 14mm. Ideally, an 18mm height would complement this hefty diver.

The above points are only my opinion and anybody is open to disagree.

Big Congrats to the folks at Steinhart for a notable creation.yourock.gif

Overall it looks like a winner but having said that I have reservations about the busy dial and the hands. But that's just me...:shock:

I think it is awesome but I would have liked it more if they had left the orange lume circle off the dial hand6.gifhand6.gif

I have nothing but respect for all of the Steinhart/Debaufre offerrings, but I'm up to my neck in Divers.  I still waiting for them to come out with a great Pilot GMT watch!

I was waiting for this one since a saw the prototype on Oceanictime, a few months ago. Like you Chris, I love everything about this timepiece. There is not one thing I would change and I can assure you that you will read my review on this one in 2010! This is the nicest diver ever made by this company IMHO. It's a winner!!! party.gif
