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.
    If you look around, or even start a thread asking for watch service guys around you, you will be surprised how many you will find. And they will be willing to service any watch

    Like I've said, with the ones I've spoken to, it wasn't really a matter of willingness but ability to procure parts in case the service/repair required parts.

    If this is an eta clone one can just buy an eta and drop it in.

    Hopefully if the dimensions are close enough. How much does an ETA movement go for nowadays? A couple of hundred or more? Add labor and we come to at least 3 - 400 bucks total? I guess it comes down to whether it would be worth the inconvenience, time, effort, and money.

    If it's a clone, dimensions should be the same. What's the point of copying a movement if you change the dimensions?

    If one thinks it's too much work he can either sell the non working Watch or toss it.
    We are talking about a $600 watch, not exactly a SS Patek.

    How many watches do people actually have serviced?
    I owned approximately 100 watches (give or take) and serviced three of those. All the others are either still running awesome or I flipped them before they needed service.

    According to someone in another thread the case appears designed to accept a Rolex (or Ro1ex) movement as well.

    That's what I thought too until I read some of the Internet articles on clone movements. Didn't Ginault detail some of the differences in their movement from the ETA in the first page?

    I guess I'm a cheapskate. $600 is $600. I don't know if I can throw away $600 watch without blinking. If I had Ocean Rover, I would want to keep my $600 (or $1300 MSRP) watch as long as I could (especially since it's really nicely made from all accounts).

    This is a good point. I have had to service two out of my collection of twenty of so. One cost me a pretty penny for service though.
