Youtube watch gurus go BAD!

Post by koimaster » June 29th 2021, 10:22pm

Seems we might have a case of buy the slick YouTube watch guru before you give them your luxury watch to sell on consignment. BTW, this Timepiece Gentleman YouTube channel started just 9 months ago. According to this article, "Dallas Grey Watch Dealer 'The Timepiece Gentleman' Seems to Have Vanished with Millions of Dollars in Consignment Inventory and Funding Money...Located across from The Hotel Crescent Court in Dallas, Texas, today their store seems to have shut down and the lettering on their glass door appears rubbed off as if they were trying to get rid of it. Additionally, their website and Instagram accounts have been closed and no one knows about the whereabouts of Marco Nicolini, Anthony Farrer, Mike Rudin —Operations Manager— and Dylan Robinson —Sales Manager."

Breaking News: Dallas Grey Watch Dealer 'The Timepiece Gentleman' Seems to Have Vanished with Millions of Dollars in Consignment Inventory and Funding Money

Just because this is happening right here in Dallas where WCL is based, we are covering this story that is outrageous, to say the least. After doing our research, we found information that claims that The Timepiece Gentleman —Gentleman Timepieces— was launched in Dallas, Texas at the end of November of 2017 with a $500 USD profit coming from the sale of a Breitling watch by Anthony Farrer —an ex-convict and felon. In 2018, a relatively young Dallas-based vintage Rolex dealer named Marco Nicolini decided to join the venture. Today, despite that these two guys are novices when it comes to real watch knowledge, The Timepiece Gentleman claims to be a $10 Million dollar empire.

After becoming a social media sensation with more than 40,000 followers on Instagram and over 110,000 subscribers on YouTube, this Dallas-based grey watch dealer seems to have vanished into thin air with millions of dollars in consignment inventory as well as the hard-earned money from hundreds if not a thousand of individuals that pitched in $2,000 USD each in exchange for being able to buy watches at wholesale prices at the new Timepiece Gentleman store that was supposed to open after raising $2 Million dollars via Instagram. Only 1,000 lucky followers would be able to become ‘partners’ of the empire the Timepiece Gentleman was building ‘at their investors dime.’

Dang. A fool and his money is lucky enough to get together in the first place.
^^^That.

Poor suckers. Gonna keep a look out and see if I can help recover some of the loot. I bet the booty site will have some way better deals.

People are stupid
Nailed it.

This is just my two cents, and if others enjoy them, by all means have at it: YT watch "gurus" are beyond worthless.

Reddit is full of antics by these guys. They pulled a charity scam, a scam saying one of their guys carrying a bunch of watches was robbed and recently are claiming the mail service lost a $100,000.00 package.
Farrer has spent time in prison (his father has too).

He is conning lots of people out of money. He is selling coaching to show gamblers how to win and is making money from people who he claims he will show how to be successful in building a business from the ground up.
He is still pulling his watch scams, this is unbelievable.
Farrer is doing interviews with lots of magazines, how can a magazine promote this thief? I would think they would be liable for leading the lambs to slaughter.
This guy makes TV Evangelists look good.
In memory of TB/Phfluff, since he isn’t here to continue to give his praise, I will share it for him.

That whole website is like some episode of "Jersey Shore Meets Keeping Up with the Kardashians" or something. At least there were no videos of Tony shooting up steroids.

And somebody posted something about prices coming down; at least for the high dollar stuff.

https://www.reddit.com/r/TheTpGentleman ... &context=3

a reply to the thread had this to say:

"I got a call for a VC Overseas and Bulgari Octo from direct boutiques.

Also I got a call about a Tudor Black Bay Chrono that I sorta put my name on a list for, but as time went by I lost interest. (I guess I got caught in the hype). I passed on that.

And two different dealers have offered me a GMT Pepsi for like nearly $3-5K less than it was before...again I declined.

I actually just put my money towards a JLC Reverso, so I mean even if I wanted to I can't buy another watch. Plus I'm pretty happy with the JLC. I guess if it was a few months ago, I'd have more "options" - but the scarcity helped me make a good decision. I truly love the watch."

That's quite a RAP sheet indeed - soon enough to include fraud. It is unbelievable that the rags promoting the guy have never delved into his background.
