Time Zone interview with the Lalo - 6/2000

Post by koimaster » May 20th 2022, 1:24pm

Long overdue for me to re-post this from years ago.


Eyal Lalo

President of Invicta Watch Company of America (aka Invicta watch group)
https://www.invictawatch.com/

Interviewer: Richard Paige

June, 2000

While I was wandering the halls of the huge JCK Watch and Jewelry Show in Las Vegas, I literally stumbled upon the booth of Invicta watches. This was actually the very first time that I had laid eyes on this line of watches, and from all the discussions here on TimeZone over the last year, I felt compelled to get to the bottom of why these watches get so much attention on the public forum.

I was fortunate enough to meet the owner of the company, Eyal Lalo. At first he was very reluctant to grant me an interview, but after sleeping on it overnight he agreed to a meeting of the minds. I believe he felt intimidated by me, and felt I may not be a totally friendly interviewer. I agreed to let him see the interview before I posted it, and this seemed fair to him….

The Interview took place on June 3, 2000.

Interesting he was running the con at 27. What his family apparently had was money - be interesting to know where it came from - we know it wasn't watchmaking. I 'spose it could have been the jewelry business or related manufacturing - fitments, mountings, rings, bales, pendants, or whatnot.

He did mention in the interview that his family was cultivating the Latin American market in the 60's and 70's. And all this time I thought it was the fleet coming in that kept that smile on Granny Lalor's face.
