    I made the same choice as you. Mine is without a date. It will be interesting to see the previews and photos of prototypes. I am intrigued.

    Ginault now has 5 Instagram posts in the last 10 days. I am excited that they are being more active on social media and being more transparent in their manufacturing process (or at least have one post so far about it). I get their whole “we are craftsmen not PR people” but when in doubt seeing a brand be more engaged and open is a plus in my book

    My bezel seems to be turned quite easy, even without wanting to do so. Is it possible to make it harder?

    I found that the bezel washer gets worn, becomes thinner and out of shape after a number of times removing and re installing the bezel. (modifying with a crystal swap and realigning the bezel insert to be spot on!)

    So I bought a bezel washer and click spring from cousinsuk. (replacement parts fro Rolex 16610) I used the new washer but kept the old click spring; with the new click spring it was too tight.

    Parts are cheap and easy to change. Result is better than original.

    Good to hear that.

    Thanks for your reply!

    For me, part of the current OR's value is interchangeable [virtually everything] with replacement Rollie or ETA parts...

    E.g., snowflake hands and dial....

    And a top-grade Swiss ETA

    2824-2 must be modded to H3 pinions at least, used H4 here (stock H2 on left, H4 on right) - there is still room under the stock crystal

    Result looks, feels, and runs like an NOS watch Tudor never quite built... with killer lume by me!

    Next month it will probably look different.

    I made the exact same choice as shakespeared and badgerracer ;)

    What do you guys think about the fully indexed insert that looks like the Sea-Dweller Deepsea one? As someone else mentioned few messages back, I am afraid that it would look busy. Opinions? Should we nudge the good folks at Ginault to also offer us the option of a simple ceramic insert like the one in the current OR?
