I just got off the phone with Eyal and need to update everyone on some facts. It is now clear that there was a misunderstanding on this whole matter. An official statement would be forthcoming by Invicta (Eyal Lalo) and D-D (Mr. Chris Becker) together, in a few days. In the interim there are some facts that must be mentioned: • • •

All movements are guaranteed to be authentic DD Mr. Chris Becker is a legitimate and correct person in the United States and does represent D-D Directly, I do apologize if I assumed otherwise. The issues with the movement are not an outcome of DD or their module. The Technical issue has been determined to be in the Dial level placement over the movement and some of the hand tolerance being used - It has been determined that by ordering the proper part (a washer to raise the dial over the movement) from D-D Invicta can solve the problems that has occurred on some of the models

This is my final statement on this matter until I release the official statement from


Eyal and Mr. Becker. That will be sent to me directly to distribute.

Feel free to distribute this information wherever you'd like.......

Thanks for passing along the information Jim, and also, thanks for re-opening this thread. Like John, I also thought it was very unlikely that these movements were not authentic ... Eyal is just too smart and too savvy too have been duped into purchase of such a large number of replica movements. But, I would also just like to add for the record, that is not the only issue that we are looking for explanation about. So, if Eyal and Mr. Becker issue a joint statement that only assures customers that they have an authentic movement, and leave it at that, it will leave a lot of questions open ..... just a few for example, this is not "speculation" .... these are just a few of the unanswered questions: Eyal said on air that he obtained the movements directly from D-D .... So, why did Mr. Becker say that the owners of D-D told him they had never sold any movements to Invicta? Eyal said on 5-27 that he was working closely with D-D to resolve the problems .... So, why did Mr. Becker say that D-D received no communication from Eyal until 6-11, and then it was just an email to inform them that he had resolved the issue with the hands? Now, I am sure that there are legitimate explantions for this, and I hope that in addition to addressing the authenticity of the movements, that the statement from Eyal and Mr. Becker will also clear up all of this apparent confusion.

Now I guess we need to standby and wait for a couple of more days for the official statement ...... you KNOW that us geeks are NOT good at that! ..... __________________ "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace" - Jimi Hendrix WatchYaThink View Public Profile Send a private message to WatchYaThink Send email to WatchYaThink Find all posts by WatchYaThink

No one knows what will be in the joint statement between DD and Invicta, it may very well clear up all pending issues. That said, until it's released what does it really matter what was said previously. __________________

Hopefully the joint statement from Eyal and Mr. Becker will address actions that people with this watch need to take, or could take, even if they aren't having operational issues with their watch at the present time. 1. Should there be a general recall of all DD Speedways, even those seemingly ok, to modify them with the extra washer, to insure reliability in the long run? 2. Should people just wait until there is a problem under their 5 year warranty? 3. Could DD Speedway owners who are concerned of a possible problem be offered the option of having the extra washer installed under the dial to insure they won't have a problem even after the warranty expires, or to make their watch more saleable to potential second owners?

Jim thanks for the information and the patience it has taken on this matter. I am not

While I believe that you have ample cause to ;/l'qwkjpoerij I'm of the opinion that as a rep who does an outstanding job, you will continue doing as you do best, selling with quality the upper most in mind.

Did you honestly expect anything different?

Good points that I would hope we all will get answers on.

But, I would also just like to add for the record, that is not the only issue that we are looking for explanation about. So, if Eyal and Mr. Becker issue a joint statement that only assures customers that they have an authentic movement, and leave it at that, it will leave a lot of questions open ..... just a few for example, this is not "speculation" .... these are just a few of the unanswered questions: Eyal said on air that he obtained the movements directly from D-D .... So, why did Mr. Becker say that the owners of D-D told him they had never sold any movements to Invicta? Eyal said on 5-27 that he was working closely with D-D to resolve the problems .... So, why did Mr. Becker say that D-D received no communication from Eyal until 611, and then it was just an email to inform them that he had resolved the issue with the hands? Now, I am sure that there are legitimate explantions for this, and I hope that in addition to addressing the authenticity of the movements, that the statement from Eyal and Mr. Becker will also clear up all of this apparent confusion.

Now I guess we need to standby and wait for a couple of more days for the official statement ...... you KNOW that us geeks are NOT good at that! ..... __________________

My speculation is that Invicta got the DD modules from a partner company or friendly third party. In assembly at Invicta or partner company somebody installed the hands without the washer and some of the guys/gals who bought the watch have had problems. Invicta will eventually take care of the problem and some will be angry at having to go through all of this. Ultimately some people will be happy and others not so much and a significant few will just be pissed off. The watch with the DD module will go up in price and become a collectors item. The one thing that all can agree to is that this has been a real "trip" in the world of Watch Geeks! ProfessorB __________________

That is exactly why there is still some speculation. The only thing that has been addressed so far is that the movements are indeed genuine Dubois-Depraz movements, not where or how they were obtained. Hopefully that question gets answered in the next couple of days. __________________
