Looks like the presence of the two usual suspects (Horo and Accutosser) killed that forum, the last post seems to be from last year's summer. Which is nothing strange, really - no forum can work well with the two of them present. Quite the epitome of "invasive species."

I believe they are one and the same. That forum was turned into the host for violations that the two above caused. http://watchtalkworld.proboards.com/

And there is also a pretender around http://www.watchtalkworld.com/

Yes, I've seen what's been going on at Watch Talk World - it was fortunately taken down due to a legal complaint by bobbee. The site disappearing from the maps is no big loss, it was pretty much a desolate battlefield already - no one posted there anymore, as no one wanted to share the cyberspace with these two troubled individuals, who made a platform for libel out of the place. Even the mods and the admin ran away.

As to the "pretender" site, it doesn't quite look like it's being run by either of the two, if that's what you meant - their handiwork has a rather distinctive stench (writing style, particular areas they focus on...) to it, which is easily recognizable at the very first sniff. If it would have been Accutosser, it would focus on Accutrons, lasers and frankenising Rolexes. If Horo, it would be a verbal wankfest to his "achievements", and a genuine rape on grammar and spelling, seasoned with a Caps Lock overdose.
