Haven't you learned anything?!??
What does WUS have to do with this?
The brand was highly promoted over at WUS and if that occurs, cattle run over each other to get to the water (watch). WUS is famous for selling forum brands which would never fly elsewhere. Look at Doxa which finally admitted it came out with the dive watches again in response to forum request (they had been pushing). Same with a few other brands. At one time they were pushing Ernest benz, lower end angular momentums and other shitty watches made to appear as better brands. I case if you put enough make-up on a pig it may still be a pig but you could sell it as a lady.

Sure, this Stolas crap had been a scam. It's very unfortunate it happened. Thanks for the information.
However I don't see anything wrong with a forum-requested watch that wouldn't fly elsewhere. If 100 people on a forum want a watch of a certain specs that no mainstream company sells and people outside of the forum don't want, then Doxa makes one and sell to the 100 forum members, that's called serving a demand. That's a bad thing?
If I want a watch for myself with certain features that aren't offered elsewhere, I band with some likeminded people to order a forum watch to be custom made. That option is a good thing
