I think sometimes members forget that many here started with Invicta or Croton or some other watch sold on TV. And many still own them but will not wear them on this site because of the ridicule and contempt factor the forum has for Invicta in particular.

After 5 years of trying to show people who Invicta watch group is (a marketing company for mostly crap watches,) the shills that sell or have sold them and the lemmings who hoard 200 watches when they could have purchased 10 or so quality watches, they are either going to learn or they are not going to learn.

I no longer care at this point. Personally I will continue to point out the lies and fraud of these companies but the saying goes, if you do your research and still buy something, go for it. If you are stupid enough to buy into the lies these people tell, well, fuck off.

Not everyone who owns a watch we might like is a troll. But sometimes we, ourselves become if only for a little while, that troll we dislike.

Nothing to apologize for. Once in awhile it pays to remind ourselves (myself included as the #1 hater) That not everyone who likes a certain brand(s) cares about the history, or knows and still purchases is a troll or an idiot. Not all of the tv sold watches were bad but a lot were. If someone is smart enough to research and still buys something so be it. I hope they enjoy it and the hands stay on. I do draw the line at shyster/shill worship though.
