I wonder if granny lalo helped invent the the self winding watch way back in 1938 for the Russian navy.

I was talking to my local watch guy this week and Glycine came up (he was once an AD) He told me that he was hearing at Basel this year that Glycine was in trouble and would probably be going out of business.
That would have been a better fate.

I probably should cross this brand off my wish list. Better start saving up
for a Breitling or Rolex before they get bought by them :sarc:

Dang! That's like getting a whole-body transplant and finding out that the donor was Stephen Hawking.

Come to think if it I'd rather sit through an Archie Luxury video with the volume turned up.

Invicter buys Glycine? Indeed - a fate worse than death. "Alas, poor Glycine! I wear one, Horatio - a watch of accurate timing - of most excellent self-winding! I have borne him on my wrist a thousand times - and now, how abhorred in my watch-box: my gorge rises at it...."

I feel there will be an entire "Pre-Invicta" note in future used Glycine sale ads.

Let's not forget, this is not the first time Lalo drags a perfectly decent brand name through the mud, it already happened to Invicta in 1992.....

I bet tiktok is gonna have a cow, and rightfully so.

Finally, I honestly do believe: This has been a terrible year for the Swiss watch industry.

All kidding aside, I agree 100%.

First ETA finally comes clean to say that they're going to dump unused product allow third party sales again, and now this. Eyal, who evidently has a lot of jack in his Panamanian pockets, is strolling through Geneva like an American Robber Baron on the Grand Tour. Hmmm, he thinks, I'll have one of those, and a couple Old Master paintings, and a few of those castles, and Glycine, and then I'll finish up with a blowjob from Comtesse Le Beouf, while her leprous husband watches, to pass the time of day!

They don't call Invicter the most feared watch brand in the world for nothing.

I think it actually even gets worse than that. First, IWG gets ahold of TechnoMarine, which still puts out watches with "Swiss Made" on the dials; imagine the hordes of pissed-off women who buy the new stuff only to have them fall apart in days, or can't get them fixed. Now imagine the confusion and disgust that will ensue once IWG starts issuing Glycine-branded product, if they continue to be sold in actual watch stores; same stuff is going to happen. So next, instead of the growing, upset group of watch buyers turned off by IWG's shenanigans, you add buyers of two established brands with Swiss ties who grow weary of the hobby after purchasing watches that turn out to be highly hyped pure shit. In short: The numbers won't be huge, but they'll turn traditional watch buyers into smart watch fans in big enough numbers to cause a lot more trouble.

I've always felt that the conduct of IWG has been highly detrimental to this hobby. And yet, they continue to fail upwards. This week, their Disney tie-in watches also hit the market. Everyone on God's green earth forgets the scores of buyers who have been duped and ripped off; they never seem to matter. The only media that IWG ever seems to get is dancing bought-and-sold shills at Basel, phony donations, and a cheesy website full of morons who crank their Johnsons over the fact that Eyal Lalo has his own airplane.

The Invicta Watch Group is the worst thing that ever happened to this hobby; it's phony horology, the new era of Ford Pinto-like planned obsolescence masquerading as "value." A pox on 'em, and fuck their gamy legion of mouth-breathing, mung-teethed, dollar store jeans-wearing simpleton fans - they're the ones who gladly financed this revolting mess in the first place by doing things like buying three of the same 65mm clown watch knowing full well that two of 'em were gonna crap out.
