Re: A Swisese company who makes watches for "mid and high-le

Fuck Doxa, their bully tactics at FB, forums where they make threats and at Watchuseek where the cunts the at call themselves Mods are in fact paid employees of a company that purchased a zombie swiss brand.

Hey Doxa, how did you justify that relationship with the man who turned is back on his country during the war while enjoying all the comforts of home, courtesy of the Nazis and his family ties.

Pierre Cousteau

Cousteau was called back to the army in 1939 and captured in 1940, although Brasillach secured his release and he returned to Je suis partout, eventually succeeding Brasillach as political director in 1943. A strong believer in collaboration, he sought internment for the Jews and justified his stance by stating in 1943 that "We are not opportunists. We remain just plain fascists". His other wartime roles included a spell as editor of Paris-Soir in 1941, service on the general secretariat of Milice from 1942 and a series of written works for a variety of journals, including Combats, the militant journal of Henry Charbonneau. He was particularly noted for both his anti-Semitism and his anti-Americanism and in 1942 he produced his most notorious work L'Amérique juive, in which he sought to demonstrate that the United States was controlled by Jews and that these Jews were bent on controlling the world.

In August 1944, he moved to Bad Mergentheim, where he helped run a French newspaper and radio station, before ultimately fleeing to Switzerland. Arrested at Innsbruck, he was condemned to death in November 1946, before the sentence was commuted to life with hard labour.[Cousteau would later justify his collaboration by stating that "I wanted a German victory because it represented the last chance of the white man, while the democracies represented the end of the white man".


By the way, Fuck Doxa

Pick a brand, any brand except Invicta which does not show up. Pick doxa and the earliest date is 63 but you will notice a break from 74 when the real Doxa ended and 96 when new quartz models made by walca came out.

Yep

'74 was the last of the Synchrons ('66-'74) and the last of the proprietary Doxas with legit ties to the original house.

One of the great threads and topics in the history of this forum.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

And apparently they still hold a grudge against both the forum and me. :lol:

My take is, that regardless where their watches are made, the quality is just not there, that and their dismal costumer service department...how they managed to sell their watches for 2G's, is a really beyond me to comprehend.

No great loss to the watch world. Ask the folks at the original bdwf how they feel about him and his part in the deletion of that forum.

Rick spammed our emails, at bdwf, with Doxa and Jenny. After I complained, I started getting spam from all kinds of crazy shit. I’m still dealing with it. I wonder how much he made off selling that list.
Indeed....had it not been for his actions and all of the outages, the original would still be a viable forum.
Thanks to Alain's generosity, that's not a concern anymore.

And yes, Fuck Doxa

The factory is in Hong Kong, it is called Walca East. They may do final assembly such as putting hands on and putting a sticker on the back but the site they list as a factory is a drop box. Amusing to have read the comments in that thread and Jenny did not try to close the thread although I think it is now locked. Perhaps now there will no more closed threads or banned members because doxa mods such as rick the prick got their panties into a bunch.

I tried on the Doxa Jaw has and the fit and finish were on par with a sub $!000 watch. Nothing special in my opinion which is not better than that of anyone else save rodents. of course it was fun reading this thread when it came out. https://forums.watchuseek.com/f74/irrea ... 45693.html


And thank you for making us aware of his leaving. :cheers:
