What our customers say about the Ocean-1 Black
I have owned the Ocean-1 for close to a year and I wear the watch daily. The face is beautiful and well constructed, and I like the heft of the 42 mm case. The bracelet is substantial yet silky-smooth and very comfortable. Also, the screw pins made sizing the band an easy task. So far, the proof of its excellence has been in the reliability of the movement. Usually, the watch is accurate to within one minute per week; far more accurate than I expected. Consequently, I feel that the Débaufré is outstanding value for the money. I came to the conclusion that there are four elements one should consider when purchasing a fine timepiece: type and quality of the movement, crystal, bracelet, and the case/bezel. The Ocean-1 excels at all four at a price that is competitive with others in its class such as TAG and Breitling. I continually receive compliments on the watch.
For the price point the Ocean-1 has no competition. In my humble opinion the watch is flawless. I spent some time doing research and comparisons (my hobby) before my purchase. All I can say is I'm glad I pulled the trigger on the Ocean-1. Having several high end watches in my collection I consider the watch to be a steal given the superlative quality of its materials, fit and finish. From my perspective Debaufre and the Ocean-1 could be sumed up in two words, WORLD CLASS.
I received my GMT ocean 1 and I was shocked at the quality of the watch because of the price I paid. I have several high end watches and the quality of this watch is as good or better. I will recommend your brand to my friends. Along with the quality of the watch is GREAT customer service. I will purchase more watches soon.
I've had my 39mm Ocean-1 since January 2011 and very seldom take it off. It is a quality watch, no exceptions! From the case to the band including the diver's extension it's right on par with watches costing upwards to three times as much. As far as performance goes, I've checked it over the past few months and it gains roughly 20 seconds per month which in my opinion is OUTSTANDING for any Automatic movement. I don't know how you could ask for more.
I discovered Debaufre only by chance after reading an article in one of the leading watch magazine I found during my annual physical at a doctor’s office. Initially, I was very interested but hesitant to make the purchase and waited for months, until I finally decided to only a week ago. I am pleasantly surprised and very impressed as the quality is comparable to some of the high end watches I already own (oris, brietling, omega, and rolex). YOU JUST CAN'T BEAT THE PRICE! The only minor complaint I have is that I wished there was another extra micro-slot on the band so it doesn’t have to be as tight. After getting my Ocean 1 (black)... I now have my eye on the GMT (blue and red).
