    Also a write-up and lots of pics at the latter. One key quote:
    So what is the quality like? Crazy good. Yep, I said crazy good. It is the best sub homage I have ever held in my hands. The construction, the case finishing, the dial work is all well above most microbrand watches. Honestly, it makes a Steinhart look cheap.

    What the heck are you blabbering about? Ginault claims Ocean Rover is "special" because among other things, it uses special copper alloy Ginault developed, i.e. quality of the material. Who said anything about design of parts? The movement is ETA copy. The case is Rolex copy. The bracelet is GlideLock copy. There is nothing "special" about design of Ocean Rover's parts. Am I confused or are you?

    I don't know what brought on the non sequitur about nobody cares in the real world rumination but, of course, we are talking in context of WIS. We are exchanging views in WUS, aren't we? Did you find me a watchmaker yet, stellite? You made it sound like it would a slam dunk for you. Get me references if you can. Thanks, buddy.

    About design points, I would give negative points to the NTH case design for defacing the almost perfect balance of the early Submariner case.

    Ginault claims no design points others than matching the defunct classic Submariner in looks and felt quality.
    The brand is the word you are looking for. As you know, almost all microbrand watches are built in China. Are you questioning all the microbrands' reputation? But I digress. The brand's reputation is built on initial quality of the product, longevity of existence, and post-sale service qualities such responsiveness. By those measures, docvail's brand got it all over Ginault. Oh, yeah. Regular interaction with the customer base by the owner of the brand doesn't hurt either - especially in the thread started by the brand.

    If you want to talk about design, look up what "homage" really means in design sense. Then look up "copy." Which do you think has more originality?

    Where did this come from? Say something not negative about a brand and automatically becomes a supporter? I said Ocean Rover seems nicely built. Does that make me a Ginault supporter? You seem to be grasping for something but I can't tell why or what you are grasping for.

    The fact these few NTH fans are so focused on the Ginault bashing makes me more suspicious of the NTH brand than anything I have dug up on Ginault.
    How did questioners (not even critics) of Ginault turn into NTH fans all of a sudden? Because NTH was used in comparison? How does that make NTH anti-Ginault? You and mf1tym are sure funny... not ha-ha funny though, unfortunately.

    I can see the distasteful & childish posts resurfacing in this thread......and that's unfortunate. It's a shame adults enjoying the same hobby can't tastefully discuss and respect others opinions.

    And there is zero evidence that ETA replacements parts could be used in the Ginault movement either. Only possibility is acknowledged based on jtragic's words. There is no definitive proof. Since most, if not all, watchmakers don't touch ETA clones for whatever reason, you'd most likely have to replace the entire movement with ETA or equivalent clone, assuming Ginault not being able to service its products, of course.
