    I was having the same dilemma. But according to John, they'll keep the blue as close as the aluminium version which is great because the dark blue is really working for me. Anyway they could change the bezel after their prototype images are out so I've got mine!

    Are you getting the SW200 movement or Ginault’s own?

    I'm not sure if I'm going to get one of the new ones yet (if the bezel markings had been uniform, instead of longer in the first 15, I would definitely be in), but if I do, I will get the Ginault movement. The one in my first-edition OR has been an excellent performer, and I expect that they will get more TLC from Ginault than the Sellitas. The Selitta can be found in a zillion watches, I'd rather have something different if the quality is there (and in my experience it is).

    Ginault's fit-and-finish of case, dial, lume, etc, is second to none in this price range (as confirmed by dozens if not hundreds of reviews, including side-by-side comparisons with Rolex). Why do people not believe that Ginault is capable of similar quality in their movement?

    Am I the only one that sees this new option with skepticism? If their movement is proven why offer a different movement at the same price?

    Have to agree. Begs the question if there are long term weaknesses in the design.

    I think this is a possibility. The other possibility is that literally every single review called their 2824 clone a “question mark” and thus was listed as a fault/unknown in the watch. Most reviews said that a movement that is more of a known factor would help to sooth those with doubt about the movement. Now they give the option for either their movement, or a Sellita. I see no downside to having more options

    I think they offer the new movement now because 1. It was the wish of many people to have at least a basic Swiss movement and secondly I think they want to attract more people to the watch.

    1700 dollars is a *hell* lot of money for what is essentially a microbrand watch, which is basically a submariner for people who can't / don't want to buy a Rolex(most of us tbh, nothing wrong with it, a sub is so expensive nowadays) . And I think many people want at least something basic with reputation in terms of movement.

    Don't get me wrong here. I owned a genuine 16610LN, in my eyes the ginault is not far off quality wise(except the movement of course, you can't even compare a eta 2824 to the 3135). And I owned 3 ginault over time. Love this watch. At this moment I don't own a ginault, my primary watch is a lovely 39mm Oris aquis. The Oris has the same movement the ocean rover 2 will have.

    I can't decide if I want to go with the unique design of the aquis or if I want to return to the classic submariner style. I would have to change the hands again... Don't like the red second...

    My time of having a big watch collection is over... I want one primary watch, and 1 or 2 watches of another kind to change...

    Aquis or ocean rover... I have to choose

    I agree. I see it as an upside. I myself wished for a Swiss movement. Now it is here, which is nice.
