What is it with the TeeVee watch brands and "compliments?"
I don't wear a watch for compliments, I wear watches because I find joy in their artistry, utility, workmanship and value.
I wear my watches for the same reasons you do. The compliments are just a nice bonus. Obviously, I will receive none of that in this forum, but what do I care? This forum is meant for pure trolling.
I've inherited some great shit- Rolex, Jules Jorgensen, old school Movado, IWC, JLC, I've got Seiko, Maurice Lacroix, Omega, Chase Durer, Sector, I have a Lupah and a complete calendar vintage IWG watch I still wear on occasion, big, small, super complicated, elegant dress- the point being- I can count the number of times anyone asked me about, or complimented, a watch I was wearing on the fingers of one hand. IDK, I think that folks who speak of the large number of compliments they get on a watch are trying to represent their good judgement as demonstrated by how many others like what they like. Fuck them and fuck you. Wear what YOU like. Nobody here gives a fuck enough about what you wear to run you off because of it, clear evidence of that exists on this board every day- we wear everything here. What we won't suffer here is fools and trolls, and you're leaning that'a way.
If you have a contribution to make, make it . Pop your IWG products into the WURW threads- they will be in good Invicta and Glycine company. WL exposed blatant, flaming fraud in the watch industry regarding country of origin, false claims as to materials used in dials, crystals, straps, cases and so on with more than one manufacturer. It's all here for you as is a great deal to learn about watches, watchmaking, and horology, who knows, you might even fall in love with another brand. All that counts here is truth in advertising and not buying stuff because you don't know what you don't know.
Watchlords is well known as the deep end of the pool and is a bumpy ride. If you can't buckle your seatbelt and ride along or if you care a whole lot about what people think, the place may not be for you. So, sit a spell, see if maybe the joint might be a good fit before you start running your mouth and calling people trolls and whatnot.
