    New owner here, bought a pre-owned of a 2017 model for decent price. Very happy with it so far, fit and finishing is very very good.

    Does anybody here have the real deal and can do a comparison? I'd be interested in getting one of these to compliment my 16610

    My new OR says hi too.

    I am very curious about the Ginault OR 2, which is rumoured to be released soon. Anyone else heard something about it?

    Still no reply as far as getting the box or anything else back.
    I believe the return instruction email specifically said just ship the watch by itself, bubble wrap is well and put it into a small box if I remember correctly.

    Any idea why this approach (no ring, added distance) would be preferable?
    Ginault's dial quality is often times the least talked about/covered subject simply because most people don't understand how freaking amazing it is.

    1st, the Ocean Rover has one of the most difficult to produce dial, a high-gloss enamel dial. (you can google the production process of this type of dial then you will know why most brands don' want to touch it) You generally don't see this type of dial being used on watches that cost below $5,000 and GS is an exception.

    2nd, the Ocean Rover has some of the best, truly remarkable forged applied incides or some call it the hour markers. The size, shape, cut, thickness, finish are all done to Rolex spec. The quality can also rival Rolex's easily. Albeit Rolex uses platinum as the material, the difference in sheen is hard to tell by just looking at it.

    So now back to the question why use a thicker hour marker rather than the thin/flush ones seen on other Sub homages? 1 because this is what Rolex does on their modern sports models, thicker hours markers provides better field of depth, a more 3D efffect when you look at the dial 2, thicker indices means deep lume fill which translate to better lume effect and also better pressure resistance but this is one aspect that is also rarely covered since most of these watches would neven be taken to depths that deep anymore.

    I got an email response directly from Ginault in regards to a new ocean rover model that is coming, soon! However, no details were provided in the email in regards to anything of substance.
