When it had Rolex stamped on it everyone was shouting disgrace but now, with a name change, people are actually handing over more than they cost for the same product!
    To be fair, I compared a few TC versions to the Ocean Rover, they may appear to be the same to most people, but to experts the Ocean Rover's production quality and techniques used, a few levels above what TC output. Many on the rep forums even call the OR parts V8 or V9 which clearly shows there are major improvements made. Anyways, I am not here arguing whether or not this came from the same guy but I am telling you a fact. The Ocean Rover's parts, they are pretty amazing, and are not the same level as the few TC Subs I examined. The details and level of production maturity on this is way more advanced. If nothing else, this guy is talented and produces darn nice timepieces.

    I don’t use facebook apart from maybe once a year to contact an old friend and have NEVER talked on there about TC or Ginault watches. I have bought 2 TC’s in the past, one of which the PLASTIC oblong baton at 6 o’clock fell off. It was never dropped and that was a V6 as I recall. I had email dealings with TC who basically said it was my problem. Counterfeit watch = my problem and I get that. I fixed it myself and sold it. The V2 I bought for my boy was faultless and ran like a champ (gen Swiss Eta 2824-2) I sold that earlier this year as I bought him a gen Sub date as he’d had that TC for 5 years.
    I have never considered, ordered or cancelled any Ginault watch or indeed a Tudor watch as stated above.
    I have not attacked verbally anyone here and had I read the whole 570 odd pages would not have expressed my views on these watches as it has obviously been done before.
    No I’m not new here and have been a watch enthusiast for many years, 45 to be exact and have a varied rotation of watches that I wear. Yes I like 5 digit Rolex but I also like 6 digit. Yes I also have other brands! I do not need my purchases validating by anyone, I buy what I like to wear.
    I am sorry that some of you feel so offended, I honestly am but before you start slamming me at least get your facts correct as I did mine.
    Exactly, as you stated, and your apology is accepted. Welcome to the thread W.

    Been staring at this OR2 picture over and over on my computer screen. The details of this watch is truly something else. And a special ceramic insert made to fit a 5 digit Sub. what an idea huh

    I sold my blue one to a member here, and just bought it back from him. It is in mint condition and I never should have let it go!

    Looks good! I really like the gilt markings on the blue bezel. I really wish they would make a black and gilt bezel as well

    They do, check it out! https://ginault.com/ocean-rover-185066/

    Scroll down and you'll see they have green, red and black inserts. All of them with gold numerals. You can probably email John and buy a spare insert (I bought a black one with vintage lume pearl that way).
