Welcome to Watchlords.


Enjoy yourself at this forum. It is self-moderated and designed to be a forum for open discussions between adults.

Free Speech

1. We members at WatchLords pride ourselves as one of the few, if not the only free speaking watch forum society. With that freedom comes responsibility, common sense and discretion. Having said that, the Adminstration Team has the right to modify and/or delete any and all posts on this forum. A response with be sent to the original poster for reason of modification or deletion. Derogatory comments which I will not post are frowned upon. Common sense does not mean you cannot speak as adults, it means consider the other person. Some are not as shock proof as old timers.

2. Think before you post. I say this not because I want to moderate, I do not. I say this because if you libel someone, it is your issue, not the forums. A sticky outlining what is and is not Libel is posted in the General Discussions forum.

3. No religon or politics are allowed in the general watch forums. We have a forum for those topics and they are accessed by a member who requests permission to join that forum.

4. Disclosure of private information in public will get you banned in seconds without a second chance.

5. Comments that are insulting in nature to members or the families of a subject of discussions are not allowed. They are not responsible for behavior of others. Try to think how you would feel if someone insulted your wife or children.

6. Personal attacks are frowned on. If you have issues with another member take it to PM or use the friend/ foe feature in your profile. You can and will be suspended or banned for personal attacks

7. New members should post an introduction post on the forum as it is common courtesy to others on the forum who would like to know who you are and what your interests might be.

7. Attacks on family members of any sort is a banning offense here. Even if a person is a public figure, their family is OFF LIMITS. No exceptions.

8. This forum is sponsor free but supported by members here. You are free to discuss any watch openly without fear of banning but if you plan on praising the virtues of cheap watches with reduced MSRPs, be ready to be questioned vigorously about it.

9. Racism is not allowed on this forum. Do not like the politics of someone, take it to the political forum and deal with it there. Do not like the skin color or race of another member, either deal with it and suck it up or leave and do not let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

10. Charity Auctions put on by the members of this forum means charities and non-profits such as St. Jude's, Shriners or any others which members may deem appropriate.


11. Do not tell us you are some kind of war hero or you survived 9/11 unless you can prove it.

12. The official position of this forum on religion, color, gender, race or political leanings is neutral. All are welcome here and members are treated equally.

13. Do not try to spam or sell replica watches on this forum. It is a banning offense.

14. No replica watches are allowed on this forum. Do not post a photo of your favorite fake Patek Philippe in a wrist shot. The photo will be deleted, you will be warned and the members here will give no mercy in ridiculing you.





(47 USC § 230) Provides substantial protections for this forum but remember that anyone can sue anyone else. Opinion is one thing, but stating something as fact when it is not is at your own risk. Watchlords is hands off unless the Terms of Service are violated. Read the TOS and live it.

Are we trying to discourage women from being members?
