    Yes, it's supposedly an American clone. You did understand the part about clones being minutely different, right? Are you implying that Ginault's clone is 1 to 1 copy with interchangeable parts?

    What is a standard ETA clone? Is Sea-Gull ST2130 a standard ETA clone? Or are you referring to Sellita? Did you specifically asked AD's if they will service Sea-Gulls, Peacocks and other Chinese clone movements?

    Geez, give it a rest. If movement service is someday not available (for whatever reason), it should be no problem to just swap in a new movement (made by whoever is still making movements).

    Meanwhile, so far just one Ocean Rover has appeared on the sales forums. That seems indicative of a pretty high level of customer satisfaction so far.

    I have been a critic of this offering, but this is actually very impressive, and a lot more telling than the review themselves.
    Many, many times you see the positive reviews followed by a quick sale a few days later.
    Not the case here.

    I own many brands including some micros. My AD's have always offered to service any watch. But if you live in a little podunk town it may be tough to find a watch repair guy. Frankly, I wouldn't think much of a service place that would not offer to service a mechanical watch. You must have some crappy service guys. I have Right Time watches and Hyde park near me and they will service anything. What is the name of your place, if you aren't BS'ing, which is a high likelihood.
    Hate-on troll. You didn't earn my money. Mind your own business you incredibly smug, supercilious, inverted snob.

    I live in a podunk town (well, metropolitan area) of 6 million. There are only two AD's that I visit and they send out their watches. You are lucky that you have access to magical service guys who can service anything regardless of parts availability. As for your skepticism, I couldn't care less whether you choose to believe or not. Watchmaking is a dying art and there aren't that many trustworthy watchmakers around anywhere, independent or otherwise, period.

    You think it's that simple, huh? Good luck with that.

    How much would that cost? I am genuinely curious. I presume the total cost would include the price of the movement?
