No eta here. This one has the soprod a-10
I did some reading before I bought it and it seems like it's a good movement. Some say it is superior to the eta others say it's just as good. Non said it was bad so I went for it.
I haven't opened it up yet. Just been wearing it.
Goes with just about every pair of paints I own since 90% of my pants are blue jeans. Lol

stryfox, you're right. IMO the Soprod A10 is a very good movt however, you might want to look over your watchs, secs because unless I'm reading it wrong, there's an ETA 2892 A2 Top inside.
Below is from the Steinhart description .

The sporty exclusiveness of the Ocean One PREMIUM Blue makes it stand out from other diver watches. Its solid design guarantees highest resiliance as well as an outstanding quality. The heart of the Ocean One PREMIUM Blue is the Swiss automatic movement ETA 2892 A2 Top whose elaborate finish can be admired through the glass case back. In addition to the sunray brushed blue dial, another highlight that stands out is the ceramic bezel inlay, also in blue color. Within the large genre of sports diver watches the Ocean One PREMIUM Blue is one of the few examples in its price range which demonstrates such an excellent cost-performance ratio.

This one definitely has the soprod a10-2 the bridge plates are different then the eta.
Also the case has soprod engraved on the case back.
It seems they have switched back and forth between the two.

WOW, that's so interesting. You know, if a buyer of this model wanted, he/she could have a very good position with Steinhart for getting a discount on the purchase price. There could be a substantiated false advertising claim. After all, Steinhart's website advertises and displays a watch containing an ETA not a Soprod ;)

I should clarify that I did not get this one direction from steinharts web site. I shopped around and found a deal.

It seems the primium steinhart dive watches came with both movements at different times.
Here is some reference to it.
