For those who come from other forums, do not continue to act as if you are at that forum. Posts with OMG will be laughed at and the poster reamed. Posts whining about your health, your dog, or your fuzzy rabbit will be moved into the geek forum where they belong. This place is neither an Invictafest nor a hot bed of Shopnbc worship. It is a watch forum with a lot of information about……. Watches!
Do we take shots at Shop and Invicta….. “You betcha!” If it were not for places like this, the Dubois-Depraz threads would be buried forever. If it were not for places like this, the truth about fake sandstone dials would not have been exposed. There is a long list of issues that Watchlords and the members here have exposed and will continue to bring to light.
Is that all this place is about? Well the answer to that is look around in the forums. A lot of videos and watch related articles and links. There are many members here with years of collecting experience that are more than happy to share that knowledge without looking down at you. We have members here who have very little knowledge also but if you want to learn more about horology, I think this place may help you.
If you come to this forum to push Invicta, be forewarned that members here, many who own Invicta watches, will bare their collective teeth. Kool aid drinkers need not register here. There are other forums for that. In the suggested sites forum is a list of them. They may be more suitable for you.
At watchlords if you take a stand, you had better be prepared to defend it with facts, not conjecture. Do not post something such as “Such and such company is using fake Alligator bands” without proof. If you do, the membership will force you to defend that claim. Do not come here because you are upset that your good buddy at some informercial channel is no longer at Wallyworld. Do not come here to act like a troll because you will not last long.
To become a member here you must have a verifible ID elsewhere. All current members of any watch forum are welcome here but remember, this is not a warm and fuzzy place. We call a spade a spade. The members here are a great group, many banned elsewhere for being members of what some poor butt hurt person called a cesspool.
We have two admins here, Watch Noob who is a great person to work with and me. In addition, for those who do not know who I am, read the Koi Pond posts. Unlike Watch Noob, I do not suffer fools well nor rabbits. Be prepared to fit into watchlords. We will not change what this place is. If you need advice, pay attention to other members. Members such As Aqua Homer, Boscoe, Foghorn, Ditchdoc and others will compliment you or insult you depending on the geekiness of your post. They are long time WIS. Does that make them better than you? No, but it does mean they may have been in your shoes at some time in the past and are trying to help you.
Join in, blend in, stand up for yourself and your positions and you will enjoy yourself here. Try to change the place to wallyworld or anywhere else... You are on your own then.
“Your heart was warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
