Well, well! Guess all of our shouting and fact-finding has been right on the money for years...years
You guys know what I've been saying for years:
They never did - because they couldn't. And now the whole world knows it.
Gotta be honest - this is my second favorite moment I've had since joining here, ranking only an eyelash behind the SO/Hamilton stupidity. But I don't think the congrats should be only to Koi and I - virtually everyone here, members past and present, sounded the alarm years ago:
Invicta is a blight on this hobby. Glad to be in that number. Thanks, Hawk; ya made my night tonight.
TemerityB has it right, Every member of this forum, past and present who were banned from watchgeeks and found their way here to the cesspool as some has been has called it, shares in this. While there are two attornies of the Swiss Federation Legal Division including Yves Bugmann who is the head of that department here as silent members, remember how many times members here raised a stink with UrineLive/Shopnbc over the years as well. Add to that other forums with members complaining about Invicta or members from this cesspool spreading the word and providing facts to those other forums as "haters" as they have been called. Eventually it was bound to raise a few eyebrows in the land of cheese. Feel free to use the below photo elsewhere.
Thank you for your e-mail. In their advertisement they mention the declarations of origin which are issued by a Swiss chamber of commerce. We will have to contact them again, one of my colleagues will do this next week!
Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry FH
Head of Legal Division
If you go evine these days you will see that invicta watches are now labeled by country of origin such as China or the like. I contacted Evine to call them out on several Invicta watches labeled Swiss Made including Item #641-167 (not pictured). I included the PDF listed by the OP.
If any watch company makes the blatant false claims that Invicta and other tv brands or some forum brands have done, then we as a forum will call them out on it. Doxa despite all of their threats to the forum or me finally admitted on a thread at WUS that they were a forum watch. Quite a change from the previous claims. Stolas and their owners called out here and elsewhere. Collectors here and elsewhere, be it WUS, DWC, WF, Purist, TZ-UK and others have the responsibility to inform buyers and collectors to beware, to take a hard look at the watches they purchase and make certain they are the real deal and not a cheap, poorly made product.
Kudos to the members here.
