"Luxury or Lie?", now presented by Jeff Hess

Postby bobbee » April 10th 2018, 8:22pm

The NAWCC have replaced their original presenter of the course that teaches people how to spot fakes with the author and CEO of Ball Watch co. Jeff Hess.
All the best to Jeff, he is a very likeable guy.

About time they got someone who knows what he is talking about.
The other guy doesn't have any sour grapes...

The thing is, that if they only change the person presenting the course, not the course itself, it will still be shit, as the entire course was written by someone who knows absolutely nothing.

If you read between the lines of the posts in the second link, he warns them not to use his own information, as it would be plagiarism.
Funny, coming from the guy who plagiarized David Boettcher for much of his info on trench watches, and a whole article on that 'Quality of Myth' thread on WUS...
I have the screenshots of all the posts the mods removed to spare his blushes in that thread...

Looks like an old member taking the piss out of Adam and his old partner in crime, Accutronitis in the thread.

...And Harris is trying to bring Ball Watches into the fray.

Harris now buying and selling watches, buys a used Ball that doesn't work properly and sells it on, as is.
Has to give refund, then trashes Ball watches on an open forum.
He's looking at a legal challenge from Jeff Hess for defamation, surely?

I think he has likely jumped on an opportunity to piss off Jeff Hess. What else can he do now? Harris is finished. His "precioussss" course was taken over by Hess, who has been giving him way too much leeway in the past few years, and his role as the resident NAWCC agitator on WUS has been taken over by his former acolyte Lehman. So, he just does what he usually did, i.e. acts in a vile manner, stabs people in the back, and posts a ton of libel.

I'm fascinated by this watch business. Is it with his former assistant, as in his site links in his signature? Or has he joined the donkey?
Not a very good work ethic either way, very similar to the donk...

He certainly tried to crawl up Donkey arse in the BaB threads, when he tried to troll me there, only to get a scragging from everyone. I don’t know if he has built any relations with them, I also know nothing of his current business. If he does any vintage watch trade, that could be BaB-worthy material.

Accutronitis as jonnyrotin now linked this thread on the NAWCC thread I originally linked to.
He won't last long there.
