    O1B owner Lusting for Ginault Ocean Rover

    I have owned an Ocean One Black 42mm for 5 years as my daily wear and I love it dearly. I have been satisfied completely with it, zero issues. The longer I have it the more I fall in love with it. I thought I would be a one watch guy from here on out but I have developed a real itch for the Ginault Ocean Rover with date, cyclops, black bezel and that beautiful Sand colored lume.

    Can anyone talk me off the ledge here or am i justified? I have read and watched reviews and that thing seems primo. Also Ginault is supposed to release details on their OR 2 in the next couple weeks. GMT maybe?

    Please give me some insight from other folks who love Steinhart....

    If you are willing to spend more than a 1K, and you like the submariner style, why not save a bit more and go for the real deal?
    Or look at something like Tudor, or oris (more in that price range).
    And sorry, I don't know anything about ginaut, but it seems just another homage watch.

    It is an homage but seems to be a cut above in the finishing in all the reviews I’ve seen. Give them a look and let me know what you think.

    As far as the other brands, I really haven’t had a desire to move to another as I have been happy with my O1B. As much as I love the Rolex I’m afraid I couldn’t justify spending that much money on a watch. I just cant see a reason to when quality to money ratio seems better where Im at with the upper level homages. I just like them and the idea of a great quality watch for a fair price.

    Do it. My only caveat would be to wait for a couple of weeks to see if something really nice is on its way.

    Re: O1B owner Lusting for Ginault Ocean Rover

    I own both. The O1B is a very nice watch at the price point, especially the newer model with the more tapered bracelet. However, the Ginault is heads above it in fit, finish, build quality and unique styling (e.g, sand lime, etc). Also, the bracelet clasp is one of its best features. I’m still on the fence about their movement. Although almost 2 years in and no problems to date and still running +3-4 secs per day. I still wish it had an authentic 2824 inside.

    You’ll pay almost twice the O1B price point now. I was fortunate to get my Ginault when there were hefty discounts available (initial marketing phase). The Ginault is a very stylish appearing watch on the wrist and fits my wrist better than another watch, except my Yachtmaster.

    If you decide to purchase one, I believe you’ll be very pleased with your purchase.

    John McMurtry from Ginault emailed saying the OR 2 will debut in a couple weeks. I will hold off and be hoping it is a GMT. Either way I’m getting one!

    Thank you kindly for the advise.

    John did mention that it will not be a GMT. Curious to see what it will be.....

    I don't own a ginault but I've handled one and owned 2 steknharts. All of the ginault parts are finished to higher standards. The dimensions and proportions are spot-on. I think they are definitely worth 1k. I look at the thread constantly but haven't bought one because of the odd wording on the dials. I just can't do it. If the new version has less nonsense text I may be getting one.
