    100% agree, and I must add that millions of dollars to wear watches which may or may not be their personal favorite, v.s. $500 discount to real watch buyers for their true/honest reviews. I've had the Ginault for almost 2 weeks and they haven't asked a single word about my pending review, in addition the Paypal transaction was complete there's no way they can take the discount back regardless of whatever I'm going to say in the pending review.

    Also I found it amusing that some even laughed at the text "Kinetic Continuous" while being OK with "Perpetual Date" which is know to at least mislead some people: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f23/wha...an-387228.html

    ^^^ Add to this the current common practice of micros having to give away samples of their watches to blog owners for "review". Some reviewed watches are returned, but many are sold on the secondary market AKA the "pump and dump".

    Of course a blog owner could slag a sample watch in their review, but that would likely result in them being cut off from future releases, essentially killing their lifeblood of new watches to review. There is an implicit relationship in this situation.

    FWIW, the blogs which have reviewed this watch gave very positive overviews.

    I look at at two indicators to see through all the drama surrounding these threads:

    #1 - How often are these watches reviewed then rapidly sold? By all indications, not very often. Maybe we'll see more now that the coupons are expired and people will try to make a profit in their sale, but to date this is a very infrequently flipped watch.

    #2 - How often do the power posters who are so against this watch post similarly in threads about similar homages such as Tissell? Not often if at all. This indicates to me there is something else driving their motivations which discounts their opinion in my estimation.

    My surprise is that so many members get so passionate about watches that they DON'T like.

    When I get passionate about something I look for as much info that I can find and get involved in forums, shows, dealers showrooms or whatever I can find to satisfy my hunger for info about my new obsession, but I can't remember ever being passionate about something I don't like, I just right it off and move on to something else worthy of my attention.

    Some people unfortunately are just wired to look for things to be upset about. It's their way of coping

    OK this thread has halted somewhat so I'll ad a pic and say that I have been enjoying the OR for a week or so and am only growing fonder of it with each day.

    Will put a review together later (for those that may still be on the fence and are still looking for new reviews) when I have enough wear to evaluate but so far only have good things to say about it.
