Those were the days! Back then we got some real fucking nutz showing up, and we could keep 'em going for days before we finally broke their necks.
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 want every one of you ball busters to take note that I took the high road in this thread and gave helpful advice without stepping on any of the ball busters toes in the process.
I was then, as I am to this day, a positive force at WL and I give everybody a fair shake. Whether they are bat-shit crazy like quagmire, or incredibly talented at putting movements in cases upside down and calling them mods, they all get fair and square treatment from the rooster.
I never bust balls because it gets you nowhere and I'll swear on a stack of Smiths Everests to my even keeled character.

Missed this one evidently. You got to be some kind of special to piss off some of the guys in that thread.

There's no question, foggy, that you're a real human being.

Wow. Never again will I ignore a thread with the title "Hello Everyone." Look what you can miss.
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

"Falstaff, do you know where or by whom the Invicta 0741 chronographs are manufactured? Do you have any experience with these chronographs? Are you simply an idiot repeating the mantra of other idiots, or do you have something to share? I have not taken the time to check your contributions to this site; however, you have provided no incentive to do so with what you shared. Best regards, Paul."
@plaverty

Well Paul, try taking me on. The watch is made in China, it has an NE 78 japanese movement which is made in China by Seiko via TMI

We disagree, koimaster, the movements are neither made in China, nor made by TMI as you have repeatedly asserted your posts including above.

The NE series of movements are automatics, each of which has ‘Japan’ marked on the rotor. These movements are made at the SII Morioka Shizuku-ishi Watch Studio in Iwate Prefecture, alongside the SII manufactured 8R28A movements.

Time Module (TMI) manufactures nothing, and never has. TMI is a sales organization for SII and Epson, as is clearly indicated on their home page. The following link will take you to a Seiko document from which the following was excerpted:

http://www.watchtime.at/archive/wt_2010_01/WT_2010_01_044.pdf

"In addition, a Seiko affiliate, Time Module, markets the more than 300 million watch movements that Seiko Epson and SII make each year for companies outside the Seiko Group."

Having taken the above position, I will provide documentation to satisfy you of the veracity my ‘where and by whom’ assertions I have made, or you can satisfy yourself by making the inquiries.

In closing, these remarks, I want to thank you for all of the contributions you have made here and at other sites, and the work you have done in maintaining this forum, all of which have allowed people like myself to make more informed decisions about what they buy. I have the greatest respect for your crusade against everything you find repulsive in IWG, and your no censorship policies on your forum.
You are correct in some assertions but from Page 55 of the PDF attached below, "Seiko brand watches" do not include Invicta.

SEIKO EPSON, headquartered in Suwa, makes most of the
standard quartz, Seiko-brand watches
(production of these
watches has been transferred from SII to Seiko Epson during
the past decade). Seiko Epson also makes the company’s radiocontrolled,
solar-powered models. In addition, it makes motion-
powered quartz models, sold under the name “Kinetic,”
and Spring Drive watches.
