Jeebus, 13 minutes or so of that lunkhead talking about the end of his Utube channel? What will the poor sod do now to satiate his addiction to his own voice and image?
No, not gonna watch it, I only checked the length of the video. He’s so predictable that I don’t need to. First there’ll be some „posh” imagery, a recap of TGV’s past „glories” (read: the times he came to the sound of himself talking), then a fresh round of verbal onanism, likely with some die-cast toys and a plastic dinosaur.

Good for WatchBox. I mean, they’re fleecers and steel Rolex/PP/AP profiteers, so if TGV working for them would be their undoing, they’d get what they fucking deserve. But the Urine Gentry channel ailing and failing is good news all the same.

You are so right about Watchbox. I dont care how "successful" they are - they're one of the biggest gouge companies in the entire watch industry. Fucking joke, if you ask me.

As for this "Gentry"? Who cares? A sad, self-serving "goodbye" video ... on YouTube? This is the problem with this country: Instead of walking up to an actual watchmaker or someone in the business and picking their brains - or even just asking friends who like watches for info - people actually "rely" on the Gentrys and Archies and Time Tellers or any of the 150,000 other YouTube watch "experts." Plus, he said he's keeping his fleabag "channel" going somehow. So, it's a goodbye video from someone who isn't leaving? Even with this, he's playing his marks. Suckers.
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

I haven't watched the video, as I've said. Perhaps I should, in order to have any clue as to what's that lame David Niven wannabe really up to, but frankly, I've had a busy week, and I don't intend to spend my spare time on watching that cocksucker's insipid babble.

WatchBox and the likes of them are the scum of the Earth. I mean, honest buyers are lined up in queues for months or years, while these clowns send in one phony after another to the ADs, and hell knows if the ADs aren't on it as well. Heard of at least one case where an AD was a part of such a scheme, prioritizing buyers in exchange for hefty bribes. Some of the wares at such fleecing schemes (I refuse to call that a company or an enterprise) presumably come from independent fleecers who buy a watch just to flip it in a day, but they wouldn't manage a constant supply if they wouldn't be sending in the shill buyers.

Wonder why that is :mrgreen:

Uh ... learned from an email from Dan Henry that the esteemed, "retired" Urban Gentry just posted a review of the new DH watch on YouTube today.

Attention-seeking schmoes always claim they "leave" when they have no intention to do so.

A fella's got to make a living. It's either bottom-feeding in the wartche bidness or grabbing his ankles for some sweaty-ass German tourist in an alley off Times Square. It's unlikely that the TGV is going to go into Professional Rasslin'.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

I don't know. 3 rounds between TGV and Archie Luxury might land them half a dozen likes on the Toob.

An interesting question, Carl. Who would be pitching and whom catching? One would think that Archie, with his monstrous bravado, would be motorboating the TGV's ass, possibly without the benefit of a reach-around. However, Archie has never quivered from spreading his very large ass cheeks for whatever jerkoff who wanted to plunder his revolting butt-hole, So I assume it's a wash.
