Invicta Donates To Soldiers - false claims about the values of the watches donated.

Postby TemerityB » May 29th 2012, 4:57pm

Reported today in Florida:

A South Florida company has stepped up after it found out that care
packages being sent to service men and women were being stolen from
during a stop at a New York airport.

On Tuesday, Hollywood based Invicta packaged up 45 designer watches to be delivered to troops overseas.


I didn't have a quibble with any of this till I read the last line of the article:
Lalo said the value of the watches being donated to platoon is in the neighborhood of $70,000.

At least where they are going is closer to China, considering the inevitable and necessary repairs.

Hopefully, the GI's don't have to pay taxes on them. I'd bet Eyal claims a 70K charitable deduction. If Invicta wants to help the US military they should ship a bunch of Invicter quartz models for Al Qaeda to use as IED timers. You can bet Eyal will be shouting this from the rooftops on ShopNBC. Sad how a business man can be so corrupt and devoid of scruples that even an act of giving ends up smelling foul.

This is a good start for Eyal; he should continue doing it.

45 watches... $70,000... divide them together... carry the y... I get a price per watch of approximately $18 trillion. Pre-discount. Sounds about right.

Based on Invictas MSRP the numbers work (kind of).

Comes to 1555 per watch. What they don't say is that the retail value is probably closer to 150/watch.



Didn't the Gov. of Calif. have to pony up the same amount for the 100 dollar RD gifted to him?



Agree about the gesture but it reeks when he puts a bogus monetary value on it to make him look so fucking generous. Total worth of his donation is probably no more than a couple grand at most. Bending the truth about donations like this is reprehensible.

That would indeed suck if the soldiers have to declare $1,500 of income for a $100 watch.

With the prices Laylow is claiming it's as if the government is building them itself. Next up, the 750K dollar soccer field for Gitmo.

The THIEF WAS CAUGHT WEARING AN INVICTA!

Why am I not surprised?

Invicta is the brand favored by Bowling Alley Bandits, conmen, hucksters and total dim-wits.

I commend Mr. Lalo's patriotic gesture. But then he has to go a fuck everything up with an over-the-top claim on the value of his watches.

This man is a Pathological Liar.

Indeed. It seems as if Eyal stepped on his dick yet again, wearing a bright yellow Invicta Sandblaster shoe.

I just watched the vid that is on the news stations website. Eyal even has the workers in the lab coats packing up each watch individually as he talks about how these watches are designed for the military. (like the lume for night mission etc.) He seems to have orchestrated this quite well and had the TV reporter fooled much as he does the geeks.
Just another marketing ploy for the slimy bastard.
