I find it interesting that's how they are terming it, among the other usual BS claims ("One of the most expensive clasp configurations," "They'll never believe you paid under $700" states Invicta Lyin').
I hope any sucker dumb enough to order their "coveted" "top" movement for 700 smackers has the good sense to bring it to a jeweler and have him crack it open to look inside. Anywho who takes any sales claim made by these loathsome TV talking heads at face value is playing a fool's game.
The Bovne website lists it as a "Swiss Made ETA 7750 Automatic." In the words of Jack Webb, dum-de-dum-dum.
Oh, and Kendall Kaddidlephopper is a kunt. ("This is an item you will feel the integrity all the time," whatever that means.)
I should think the wartches will indeed contain the Very Rare, Highly Coveted, Valjoux 7750.
I believe it shows that Lalo knows his customers. The previous fiasco, in the minds of the fanbois, served to highlight how wonderful and special and amazing the 7750 is. There is no thought of "standard" grade, grey market, casing up with indifferent QC...nosiree...just "I must have a 7750...why it's a triple grail!!!! Much better than that crappy SW500 I got last time. LOLOLOL. Only $700? For a rare Valjoux? How many value pays?"
That Nvicter is aware of the marketing potential of the fiasco, and only nvicter fanbois see a fiasco as a selling point, is the "feel the integrity" nonsense. See? A genuine Swiss Made Valjoux has integrity, and is worth paying a premium for. Unlike the shitty SW500. (Until they offer another wartch with the SW500, of course. Then it will also be a grail, albeit merely a double grail.
