    I jumped in late but the blue/gold is great and the watch is so nicely done not into the v2 but who knows when I see it if that had a 6200 style explorer dial sub or a gmt my wallet would be in serious peril

    I don't have any statistics, but my impression was that complaints were on par with pretty much any other brand's thread that I've followed, with probably better time keeping accuracy than most run of the mill Swiss movements. Certainly no trail of catastrophic failures. That's just an impression, though.

    I had two ORs and there were no issues and timekeeping was very accurate.
    This was the only criticism other than the homage part so they simply listened to feedback and are now offering swiss movement.

    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 am in the same spot, currently own the classic smurf ginault with modded secons hand and I am not sure if the OR 2 will be worth it as an upgrade...

    Are you getting the SW200 movement or Ginault’s own?
    Im probably getting the SW200. Not that I hear anything bad about their movement but it's just a default movement they are giving for the OR2 which I don't mind at all. I'm sure the same attention of regulating their own movement would be given to the SW200 so why not since Sellita movements are proven workhorse.

    I really like the new fully indexed bezel. This further aligns it with the 5517 mil-sub than just another standard sub homage.

    I also really appreciate the way Ginault is doing business. Their offering of a pre-order with a fairly substantial discount for previous customers is a classy move in a world of kickstarter micros.

    That all said, even with the discounts the new models are up around $1K. I can't help but remind myself that this price point is Squale 50 ATMOS territory (on Squale mesh) as I recently purchased one. It gives me a little cause for pause.

    I still like my original OR quite a bit, and as much as I like these new upgrades, I find myself leaning towards saving my $ for the future GMT.

    Wait there is a GMT coming?
    A real gmt (as in: jumping hour hand, not the useless ETA style gmt)?

    John makes fantastic watches, I can’t wait for a new model.

    The Ginault 7275 movement is equally or better than my Tag and other brands and the craftsmanship with the aluminum is outstanding. I completely suggest to not overlook the movement quality.

    Yeah I'm wrestling with it as well, I love the idea of the ceramic insert but I'm not sure there is enough difference from my current much loved OR to justify the spend so I may have to wait for one to be revealed in the flesh before jumping in.............................BUT I may not have the patience to wait.
