Things worked out in the end! Called FedEx yesterday and they said the errant watch was on its way; tracking had it in Memphis at 12 am today. I get an email from Steinhart saying they contacted FedEx after I emailed them and got the ball rolling, I should expect the package tomorrow. About 10 am today I hear a knock at the door....FedEx!!! They really stepped up their game all around....thumbs up to all parties!

So here's a review and some pics...it was worth the wait!

Details from the Steinhart site:

Technical Details

I love this watch! The bead-blasted finish is very cool; great contrast with the black DLC bezel and dial. Bezel click nice and smooth, tight, no free play. The dial is really cool; I love the black/orange/white combo. TONS of Superluminova on the dial and bezel, really stands out. Hands are cool too. I was a bit apprehensive about the rubber strap with the deployant. It's a lot more comfortable than I thought and no problem unclasping as I wear it. And of course it has the all important Helium escape valve for when I...well I guess I'll never need it, bit it's a cool little orange thingie on the case!

Very nice and congrats! I am really considering the all DLC model myself. If I may ask, how much was it shipped to the US given the current Euro/US exchange rate?

500.59 euros; it was a bit less than the site stated. The all DLC would be a bit higher I believe.

Congratulations! Steinhart gets A+ again for support.

I had a package go out of the normal path coming to me from Singapore. Contacted FedEx and they corrected it. They sent a special courier to me when it got to the Atlanta Hub too. Really like how they've handled such issues more than the other carriers.

Very nice photo review! Triton in the house!! 803574

Nice looking watch-love the contrast between the BB case and bezel. Lume looks really good too. Glad you got the shipping snafu straightened out.

Very COOL watch - No Doubt.
Really like the dial design and lume colors.
Especially like the clasp - makes the rubber look really thick.

Curious how you got around the VAT?

Enjoy.

Enjoy.

The strap IS thick, about 6mm an the lug end! As far as the VAT, the total on the site was higher than what my statement was; I believe they removed the VAT from my order.

When you click on the watch,it shows vat price and non vat price for non european nations.
Glad it finally showed up and certainly beats out all of those clone watches out there.I'm thinking about getting the dlc version since
the price is so good.So the rubber strap is nice huh?

Cool - always wondered how that was handled.
Good to know it is automatic. Thanks

I'm happy everything worked out so well in the end. This watch
looks UNBELIEVABLE ! Triton in the house!! Icon_smile That dial looks OUTSTANDING imho. The

THE best also ! It's cool the way Steinhart did the numbers, and
markers by the way. The bead blasted case, is something special
too, along with that extremely cool helium escape valve on the
side ! ..A watch, well worth the wait sir !..I mean just look at
that lume ! Triton in the house!! Icon_biggrin Congratulations on getting this one, and having
