My hunch is that Eyal has turned Stan on to all his connections in China and that the Deep Blue watches we are seeing now are made using the same parts by the exact same people who make Invictas. Those Blue Water models look just like Grand Divers to me.
DB is hot right now and is getting $500 for a watch that Invicta has a hard time getting $300 for. Stan and Eyal probably made a deal - Stan gets the connections to produce more watches and in return Eyal gets a piece of the action. If they can manage to keep the QC and CS from slipping most folks will never be the wiser. Thats my hunch anyway.

Is good to add that rotors re-branding of ETA ebauches is nothing rare but actually rather common...that been said however, this practice is done by watch manufacturers under ETA licence , some I will assume, rather easier as they fall under the Swatch umbrella (i. e. Breguet, Blancpain, Glashütte-Original, Léon Hatot, Jaquet-Droz, Omega etc)) , non Swatch members have done it and continue to do it too( TAG Heuer, Tudor, Ulysse Nardin etc.)... but Sellitas is not a watch manufacturer , it is actually ETA competition, another ebauche manufacturer so the whole deal smell rotten to me....

Seems that regardless of what is fact or not, any association with ShopNBC and Zeta male grifter yields suspicion. Now Stan has fallen into the trap, and has further complicated his dilema with a non-responsive position.

I see Jimmy has addressed the issue of his detractors again, only drawing MORE attention to himself and the swamp of dishonesty he is mired in.

I don't ever care to own a Deep Blue, I have no axe to grind with Stan. I see his choices boiling down to either grabbing all the dollars he can and bailing . . . leaving his integrity behind . . . or do the stand up thing and walk away now with a lesson learned and a decent future ahead of him with his company.

Jimmy will pull him down. This is not the only forum with utter contempt and distain for him. Contrary to the swill he spoon feeds his troops. He will cost Stan across the board, many watch fora will see what we see. Some already do, but have chosen the path of least resistance, and kept the public commentary to a minimum.

I say this, after reading today two comically positioned threads (one directly before the other), one from Stan proclaiming "WOW" . . . the very next "not liking the T100 48mm".

I think foggy nailed...
"Based on my experience watching watch shows in the past I wonder how much of a difference there is between directly lying to customers and sitting by,tacitly nodding and smiling,while the guy next to you lies."
My comment is ...there is no difference.
