I just received my new San Martin SN017-G (upgraded version).
A great watch – almost perfect!
Love the colour,
Love the bezel action – aligns perfectly and is solid
The end-links are tucked in nicely and are well machined/defined – been looking for a watch for ages that does this properly.
Timekeeping is approx -1 to 2 secs per day which is fantastic.
This watch has great lume. (often this is the thing that annoys me with other brands when the lume is poor)
Solid all round build.
The bracelet is good and articulates well but the edges are a little to sharp – could do with a little more refinement on the sides touching the skin.
The clasp again has quite a few sharp edges – this was easily remedied with a little sanding down but should really be done at factory.
Same with the case lugs – very pointy and sharp – not too bad once on the wrist but all these sharp edges make you feel like you are putting your hand in and out of a bear trap at first. Again I’ve dulled the edges down and now is not too bad.
Crown has great grip but again the underside tends to be a bit prickly when you extend your wrist. Again I had to just sand the underside of the crown a touch to stop that.
Date bubble – ever so slightly mis-aligned. Its not a lot but it is noticeable and causes you to have to ‘over-twist’ your arm to read the date correctly. The irony is that if it were mis-aligned the other way it would probably be fine because of the angle at which you look at the watch.
Overall – a great little watch – even if you only fix the date bubble issue then I think you are on to a winner with this one.

I’ve been wearing my San Martin Green V2 now for about 2 weeks. LOVE it. Great all around watch. Great Lume. I’m getting ~+3sec/day, AMAZING! Version 2 has a great fit, the clasp is perfect. Bezel fit and feel is great! The only down side is the corners on the lugs are very sharp. Other then that perfect!

Ordered mine a week ago.
Received it within a week via DHL.
San Martin sent me a mail to keep me informed when they sent the watch
Execellend packet in a hardcase and a screwdriver included.
Very nice watch, looks great. Adjusting braceletsize to my arm was easy, thanks to the added screwdriver. Bracelet looks very solid, thank God for the screws and not pins. The onlything I am a little bit curious about is the waterresistance when you go swimming, or scubadiving, but I think there is only one way to find out….

This is my first San Martin and I am really pleasantly surprised by the quality of this watch. Everything processed neatly. Bezel snaps in place! Wonderful ceramic bezel insert. neatly crafted numbers and markings on the ceramic bezel. Date magnifier fits perfectly. beautiful hexagonal San Martin logo. indices and hands neatly coated with luminous material. Of all my diving watches, the ones with the strongest luminosity in the dark. The bracelet is solid and the individual links are screwed. personally i don’t like the clasp. I would have liked the first generation clasp. It was definitely not my last watch from San Martin! best regards from an extremely satisfied customer!

This is my second watch from San martin now, the customer service is incredible! Just received the water ghost v3. What can I say, the build quality is amazing, the bracelet high quality, the bezel is a joy to operate with no play and lines up correctly. San martin lume is always a strong point of there watches and this is no exception! This is the perfect homage to the rolex sub. I’ve owned the steinhart ocean one and the quality of this watch is right up there if not better! Very happy indeed. The only thing san martin need to do now is use a better movement. This watch needs a 28000bph movement. Miyota 9015? Or seagull or ETA 2824-2 I honestly feel people would pay more money. Please change this for v4.. If san martin make these changes I personally believe they could become one of the best micro brand out there currently.
Anyway I would recommend this company to anyone as they really are quality watch makers!! They have a great following already and are only going to get even better!! Many thanks James.

Great watch, fast delivery.
Just regret that the tools that come with it have changed and are lower quality

I recently received a customized dial from San Martin. It was really an excellent experience from when I first had a chat with Glenn until receiving the watch. Glenn answered all my queries and catered my requests on how the watch dial should look like.
This piece deserves 28800 bph.
Marcus (verified owner) –
Like the other 5 or 6 San Martin watches I own, this one is also excellent quality. I’m still shocked at how excellent the watches are for the price. Easily comparable to watches that cost twice as much. Also, Glenn’s service is among the best I have ever experienced in the watch industry. Highly recommend!
O. Smith (verified owner) –
Overall, I recommend this watch, and highly recommend San Martin’s watches in general. This is due to the quality and beauty of these watches, as well as San Martin’s phenomenal customer service.
After wearing the watch for two weeks, here are my complete lists of pros and cons:
— Highly accurate. My watch is running plus 1-3 seconds per day, which is phenomenal for an NH35 movement (Seiko states -20 to +30 sec. per day). It is important to note that San Martin takes pain to regulate the movements installed in the Water Ghosts ver. 3. This is truly incredible!
— Beautiful, well proportioned.
— Looks slimmer than actually is, owing to a clever design of the midcase.
— B-r-i-l-l-i-a-n-t design of the end-links. This is a great improvement over the first version of this watch. Now, the mid section of the end-links does not protrude as much as on most Subi homages. Thus the watch wears so much better, and can fit slenderer wrists.
— Good tolerances for the price (though see cons below).
— Very good brushing and polishing for the price, though not as amazing as shown in the photos on San Martin’s website. The hands are also well finished.
— The watch looks high-quality even when inspected through a powerful magnifying glass.
— High quality bezel insert. Numerals are engraved with high precision.
— Very good bracelet. Excellent tolerances and no rattle. The sharp edges on this bracelet are no issue to me (though see cons below).
— Bezel action is good for the most part (though see cons below).
— Super high quality clasp.
— Attention to detail. This can be seen, for example, in the design of the clasp: when released and pulled back, the safety latch doesn’t touch and scratch the bracelet, as is the case in many watches.
— The watch arrived in perfect condition, no scratches whatsoever. Earthquake proof packaging and protection.
— Customer service: the best I’ve ever experienced. Kudus to Mr. Glenn Yu! He answers every inquiry quickly, in detail and bang to the point.
— Sharp edges everywhere. While not necessarily harmful, these edges make the watch feel somewhat cheaper. The sharp edges on the lower parts of the case and lugs can irritate the skin towards the end of the Ulna bone–of course, only if you wear the watch tight and the end of your Ulna end protrudes. If you wear the watch loose, the crown’s sharp tooth can irritate the back of your hand, and–as in my case–even leave their marks. The bezel’s cogs are sharp as a handsaw, literally.
— Bezel action is a tad uneven (but never too loose or too stiff).
— Bezel insert does not align perfectly. Ouch!
— Lume isn’t as good as claimed by reviewers: while the lume on the indices lasts through the night, the lume on the hands lasts barely two hours (in complete darkness, charged with an ultraviolet torch for 45 seconds). My Zelos Mako III (450$) and Phoibos Eagle Ray GMT (180$) have far better lume, both on indices and hands. In a “lume war” I have conducted, these two watches defeated the Water Ghost hands down. I believe that the cause of this issue is not an insufficient amount of BGW9 layers, but rather the thinness of the hands: there’s just not enough space for a proper amount of lume material. The hour hand is the worst in this aspect, due to its small size and specific design: the BGW9 chunks that fill the tiny gaps in the “Mercedes emblem” are too small. The lume pip is even worse than the hour hand. It is practically useless.
— Crown action is tough and gritty. No signs of breaking-in just yet, i.e. after two weeks of usage.
— Cyclops is a tad too small, It looks as if designed for a smaller watch. There’s hardly enough space for two numerals. Magnification is sufficient though.
— The shark on the crown is an overkill. It is virtually indiscernible, not even with a magnifying glass. And it is not as sharp and crisp as shown in the photos on San Martin’s website. In fact, it is not the same shark emblem. I showed the watch to four of my friends, and they could not discern a shark, nor fish of any kind. The shark can be seen only with the aid of a super-macro lens. To the naked eye it looks merely like a shapeless imperfection on the face of the crown.

Just received my submariner and it looks great everything lines up perfectly and the finish is spot on. Delivery was very fast Iam pretty sure I will be ordering the black sub next. Thanks for the great watch

Just received my watch with DHl delivery from Hong Kong. It was received where I live in New York in less then 2 weeks I am really impressed with the quality of the watch and watch band. The watch in stainless steel is nice and thin looking. The stainless on the watch and band is mostly brushed in a satin finish and looks spectacular. There are screws to remove its links for sizing and was easy to do. They even enclosed the screw driver to do this. The links were made the way it should be made and I love them. For sizing there are 6 micro adjustment to help. This watch is definitely recommended and is one of the best Asian market watches that I have ever seen and has a great price point.

Let me first say that I am a bit obsessive about watches (most things really) and did a lot of research before making this purchase. What I was looking for was something with a very similar look to the Submariner, without being a full blown knock off, but also automatic and of decently high quality without spending a small fortune. In that I feel that this watch absolutely delivers. Ill start out with the good:
-I was, and continue to be extremely impressed with this company’s high end customer service, speedy replies and insanely fast shipping. I live in Denver CO (in the US) and even though I opted for the higher end shipping option, was expecting close to a month to receive this watch. A day or two after ordering I got an email with not only the shipping info but also a picture of my actual watch going into the mail (a very nice personal touch). The package left Hong Kong on a Sunday, and was delivered at my door in Denver on Tuesday. Seriously 2 days! That is crazy fast! So if you are anything like me and hesitant to order something from these guys based on the long shipping time (I was even looking at used models on ebay, specifically because they were closer) don’t worry, as they will likely have a new watch to you, directly from the maker, in the same amount of time that you could order a local amazon prime delivery.
-I will also say that in comparison San Martin Watches seem to hold their value MUCH better than other homage watches out there. Just check the prices of used on ebay (practically the same price as new). So if your worried that you may not like the watch you order. Dont as you can easily get most of your money back should you decide to flip it on ebay down the road. Very little risk.
-And finally the watch itself is pretty much perfect and honestly an amazing value for the price. Exactly what I was looking for. I even really like the new v3 logo they are using (was very close to going with the no-logo version, but am happy that I opted for the logo as it looks great)
Negatives: Really the only negative I found was a slight bit of quality control on the bracelet: One of the screws was sticking out a mm or so (took two seconds to tighten myself) and when resizing I was actually quite disappointed to find that two of the screws were stuck: to the point of breaking two tools trying to remove them (I tried soaking in liquid wrench, wd-40, heated with a torch/soldering iron nothing worked). I am guessing that they were just poorly machined and cross threaded or something (the ones I ultimately did remove were fine and had some sort of locktight on them). Anyways, I ultimately wasnt able to correctly size my bracelet. BUT a quick email to San Martin which received a quick response and they are making this right by sending me a couple extra links as well as a new tool. Again excellent customer service and the reason I still gave 5 stars! Also while I did mention quality control as an issue with the bracelet, I do actually consider the bracelet as one of the watches major strengths as aside from a couple stuck screws the band is very nice (much better than its competitors in this price range as well as well above) I really like the band and clasp.
-Other very small qualms: like others have mentioned some of the edges are a bit sharp (especially around the bezel), but I honestly prefer that look of the crisp sharp edges more than rounded. I am also not super fond of the shark used on the crown. I would have preferred either nothing or perhaps a crown with branding more consistent to their new logo (which would probably fit quite well on the crown). And finally, while the NH35 movement is fine and a very reliable one: I would have liked to see a movement upgrade option in purchasing. However a movement such as the swiss ETA 2824 alone costs more than this entire watch, so of course there may be a very limited audience interested/willing to double the cost for such a feature. Though I know I would have been.
Overall beautifully done watch and in my opinion one of the best values out there. Also extremely good customer service. Definitely order direct from these guys. Ill be back as I have my eye on a couple of there bronze models.

Wow! The quality of this watch is amazing. You won’t find a better homage for this price. The bracelet is a little sharp, but not too bad. Sizing was very easy with the included tools.

It is very nice. I would prefer no date.

I’ve got both the Black and Green of this “SN017-G -UPGRADED” .
I love the look and finishing on these – absolutely amazing at this price point ! I ordered the Green to begin with – and when I received it and saw the quality I ordered the Black one as well ..
The tools included are a great touch – letting me get straight into adjusting the bracelet ..
Another big positive here is the customer service for me ; I asked questions shortly after placing both of my orders – and I got replies answering all my questions with an impressive response time (50 minutes the first time , 4 hours the second time) : Very reassuring !
Regarding the sharp edges ; I can feel and percieve them as sharp if I hold the watch in my hand and touch the watch with my fingertips – but when wearing the watch it does not feel sharp and it does not dig into the skin anywhere.. I quite love the sharp edges ; in my eyes it makes the watch appear more masculine.
From my experience I can recommend this if you want the product you see in the sample images.. To me it looks even better on my wrist.

I ordered a custom dial SN017G as a gift for a friend. Dealing with Glenn was easily one of the best customer service experiences I’ve ever had with a business, let alone a business outside of my own country. The watch was created over a Chinese holiday but from approval date to delivery was exactly 30 days. Even with all of the stellar reviews I have seen from San Martin and the SN017, I was still absolutely blown away by the piece in person. The finishing of the custom markings, the finishing of the dial and indices as a whole, the beautiful lume and the fantastic bracelet and clasp were all punching well above their weight. I was actually sad to be forwarding the watch on to my friend, so much so that I ordered my own! Within 2 weeks mine has already shipped, and should be arriving within 21 days this time around. Buy with confidence and get yourself a beautiful custom piece. I will be doing more business with San Martin.

I received my black Sn017G-V3 a couple of weeks ago. I am thoroughly impressed with the overall quality of this watch. The updated SM octagon logos are MUCH appreciated. Accuracy is within 3 secs per day! I wouldn’t mind a bit smoother bezel action, but it’s still very good and nothing to complain about. Love the bracelet, but my ONLY gripe is that I wish there were at least 5 or maybe 6 micro adjustment holes in the clasp.
