Ahh, to resurrect the great Invicta Sandstone Scandal. I have in my collection one of the most distinguished infamous Invicta watches. Not only is this one a genuine simulated standstone, but it is a Reserve watch with a Japanese Miyota automatic movement. Recall, Reserve watches are all hand made in Switzerland by only 10% of the best Invicta watchmakers.
Not only that, this watch was advertised on ShopNBC as an exclusive; none made available to any other outlet. The price, a very reasonable $700. This watch was sold from the Gilt shop two months later for $225. http://www.gilt.com
On WG, the people who bought this exclusive were naturally very upset.
I picked this beauty up as a collector's item for even less money from some Ebay vendor. Sorta like owning an Edsel. This is a real piece of horological infamy.
Eat your hearts out, guys.
Watch collecting is a disastrous trap and I'm stuck. At least I always know what time it is.
