A serious question - How do you guys plan on getting your OR serviced? Some of you said since it's an ETA clone, it shouldn't be too difficult but a couple of watchmakers I've spoken to refuses to service ETA clones. Well, it's more of can't rather than won't service them. The watchmakers said that there are actually minute differences between ETA and clones; and that parts are not usually interchangeable. While ETA and other Swiss movement parts are readily available, parts for, let's say, Chinese ETA clones are not. That's why they won't take Chinese clone watches for service. Do you all expect Ginault to be around long enough to handle your service needs?
I have never had any AD tell me that they would not service a watch that had a standard eta clone movement. So I do not consider this an issue at all. If you own a microbrand you could say the same for it. How many micro brands are gone and people still try to collect them. Redsea watches, lol.
Hate-on troll. You didn't earn my money. Mind your own business you incredibly smug, supercilious, inverted snob.
