ABTW Covers Invicta Disney Watches

Postby TemerityB » September 4th 2016, 5:46pm

...and once again, another esteemed watch "journalist" chooses to ignore the shell game that is the Invicta Watch Group. I was leaning this way in the first place, but I now consider Ariel Adams the Lew & Huey of watch writers. Good freaking lord.

Here's the headline; I'm too disgusted to copy and paste more than this.

Invicta Makes A New Batch Of Limited-Edition Disney Mickey Mouse Watches & They Are Mostly Sold Out

BY ARIEL ADAMS

The comments, on the write up, are funny.

Adams is obviously getting paid by watch companies for his bullshit.

Even says that he owned one Inshita in college and had to stop wearing it because, take a guess? A part fell off!

ABTW has sunk to a new level of stupid...

And somebody needs to punch AA squarely in his vagina.

Most watch reviews are BS. Guys like Adams and OceanicTime are clearly just pay for comment shills. Most owners are either still in the middle of their honeymoon period or are defending their purchase.

If a reviewer doesn't explicitly say what is right and wrong with the watch and/or its maker, then its not trustworthy IMO.

REL is so full of shit that his eyes are brown. Even though he made some interesting left-handed compliments of Invicter, it is clear that he's a stupid fucking jagoff who should have his dick squashed on an anvil with a sledgehammer.

To be fair, this is probably the only way a guy with 9" wrists could be a model.
Well, that and the "before" picture in one of those comic book exerciser ads.

We will see how long my comment stays there -

Ahh yes, Inflicta. The "honest" brand will now infect Disney. Had their own forum at one time with inflated membership (by tens of thousands), ban happy people and by far the most vicious group of hoarders claiming to be collectors I have ever run across in over 30 years on the net/usenet/bbs.

Inflicta watch group

Is not a watch manufacturer but a marketing group claiming the heritage of the original Invicta which went out of business over 30 years ago.

Caught claiming their fake watch company S. Coifman made the watches actually produced and rebranded by Claude Meylan.

Claimed the Meylan showroom was the Invicta Factory.

Caught claiming fake diamonds were real.

Caught claiming plastic dials was "REAL SANDSTONE" dials.

Caught selling movements made in Thailand and Malaysia which they claimed were "Swiss made".

Caught using grey market DD modules they claimed they purchased directly from Depraz.
Caught claiming Dubois Depraz improperly installed the grey market modules which they did not.

Granny Lalo invented the Russian Diver

Eyal Lalo is a third generation watch maker, or is it second generation, or first or not a watchmaker at all. Depends on the interview he gave.

Recently sold watches with "valjoux 7750 movements" which turned out to be SW500.
Claimed he donated $78,000 worth of watches to an Army Platoon. Watches were worth less than $5k at full BS MSRP.

The many claims of owning a Swiss Factory since 2000. (TZ interview)

Swiss gold layering (excuse me while I laugh)

Technica Swiss ebauche (made in Korea)

Lupah Reserve - POS, plus billed as Invicta worked with Seiko to design new movement

Russian Diver 50 year - Marked 60 years on caseback

Sea Spider Sport - Marked Swiss on the dial, and Swiss Parts on the caseback, Eyal and Jim never touched on the discrepancy on air

OTV Excursion with ISA movement – Crown sat low from the case and had sharp ridges. Many reported it was very uncomfortable and Invicta did nothing.

Interchangeable strap Venom and SAIII – Screws to fine of thread, tons of people cross threading, screws breaking, etc… etc…

Lupah Grand OTV with MOP dial – Dirt cheap set, MOP dial possible sticker as un-natural looking wrinkles were reported in many of the dials.

Scuba TTV – Lots of reports of crowns and stems coming loose.

Colored ceramic watches – Invicta reps claim it is solid color all the way through. Turns out they were glazes on top of dull grey ceramic.

Original S1 Racers – ETA retrograde movements would jump from their settings at rest @ 9 and move to 9:15 setting for no reason.

SAIV – Lots of problems with missing “S” in Subaqua on the dial. Even SNBC model pictures have this missing as well.

SAS - Invicta reps claimed lug screws were true screws, turns out they were pressure pins with the illusion of screws.

Plasticase – Suing Invicta for taking their samples and having them sourced to be made cheaper in China. Invicta, specifically Eyal said many times on air that the case was a name brand, costing hundreds of dollars, very expensive case but could not say the name on air.

Flame Fusion – Tons of reports of the uber crystal that is better than sapphire or mineral scratching, chipping, cracking, etc….

Mold - SAIII Kit pulled as mold was growing in the awesome Chinese knock-off diver's cases.

Bezels - Lots of reports of loose bezels, rattling bezels, or just popping off altogether.


Yep! Disney has a lot to look forward to.

Well, it ain't WGs. There's a few pretty strong comments in there, along with the Larry Holmack types.
