Honest opions wanted.... IWG Haters?

Why are people so hateful toward IWG? Are they right about misleading or lies to sell watches, or are they snobbish elitists that don't believe IWG can deliver the product they claim at the price they sell at?

Most likely a combination of things, but Ron hit the nail on the head "Ignorant". __________________

I would have to say those "haters" are probably just jealous!

The hate has been going on longer than I've even known who Invicta was...

But, they did lose some customers with the recent unrest related to a few pieces and the Swiss issue.

Still... HATE is a strong word and one that really doesn't belong in a hobby people do for fun...

The most humorous part about this particular topic is that the HATER'S,probably don't even own an Invicta and may have never even had one in there hands!Pure un adultrated FREAKIN IDIOT'S!LIKE what was already said IGNORANT'S IS BLISS and in some cases CONTAGIOUS.IMHO

I've owned all sorts... Tags, Tissot, Oceans, Dievas, Seiko, Citizen, DB, NFW, Android, VE, Pulsar, etc. I bet I have purchased 3 dozen Invictas over the years. The only issue I ever had was a crown popping off of a Venom. And I cannot say that it wasn't my fault or not. I think they're snobs myself.

Invicta has put a big target on their back because they move a lot of product. Other watch companies

Try going to the Invicta Watch page on Facebook if you want to see the haters! I used to enjoy looking at that page, but can't stomach it anymore! There are some that must lead some pathetic lives where all


they have to do ALL day is troll around a page and make derogatory comments towards Invicta watches themselves, or the people that enjoy them. There are also the few that feel that some how, Invicta owes them the most expensive watches they make at some rediculously low price on the Sunday Run. I'll be the first to admit that I have been more than disappointed at some of the Sunday Run's, but Invicta owes me NOTHING! They don't have to have a Sunday Run....or a Thursday Run....they do it out of the kindness of their heart. I, for one, appreciate the Sunday Run's, but don't expect them. Also, those people that have time to worry about what type of watch I have on my wrist.....have too much time on their hands!

I think that if you own some Invicta's then you have the right to comment on them. If you don't you should not comment. I don't own a Rolex so that is why I am not at liberty to comment on them. __________________ CHOOSE TODAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE...AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE WE WILL SERVE THE LORD

Yes, opinions must be derived from personal experience. To base your own opinion solely off other people's experience is sad. I have had a nearly perfect track record with Invicta, therefore I keep buying. For me to stop buying just because someone else had a bad experience is, well, odd. This is why Nick, myself, and many others do not relate to all the "hate" and vitriol that come out of some people's mouths, even on this forum. Ignorant was one word used to describe the "haters." I suspect obsessed would be another word to describe it. With obsession, there is a mental instability which comes to play. These folks have long since gone from the objective to the great abyss of irrational babble. __________________ "There's a difference in livin' and livin' well..." -George Strait watchdude1 View Public Profile Send a private message to watchdude1 Find all posts by watchdude1 Add watchdude1 to Your Contacts #31 Today, 06:43 AM

They remind me of an old GF that cant move on with their lives.I doubt if they would have anything to discuss if it werent for 1 brand which most or all of them have owned or own.They certainly arent true watch collectors. If I hated a brand as much as they do I surely wouldnt create a whole forum based around that hatred I myself wouldnt look back.I guess they cant do that. Maybe a couple of slander lawsuits would make them rethink their actions. __________________

Matt, I suppose those negative people need to read, "Lord Of The Flies," maybe, if they get through the book, they might think a bit, about themselves. ... I guess we have all seen along our path's, many people who wear judge's robes, and have to judge and spread negativity, rather than just being happy for a fellow man or lady, who just purchased a timepiece, that sang to them. Brand, is an, "identifier," to some for guidelines, perhaps,but, imho, they need to chill a bit, and just allow another collector to enjoy their purchase, if for $1.00, or much higher. I would imagine if they were at a wggt, and face to face, no negativity would be as profound as in a hidden, internet setting, allowing them the power in their own mind. Human nature, tough to figure sometimes. __________________

They are "haters" in the literal sense. I caught a glimpse of a thread about Christina Aguilera singing the national anthem at the last superbowl. I saw how the thread took a turn and folks were slinging around racial slurs like it was nothing. And to make it so bad, it was a moderator that started with the racial slurs. __________________ "A man who doesn't wear a watch does not understand the value of time." -

I look at this and smile,for every thing thats made for some unknown reason people are gonna hate it do not know why, they just do, Watches Guns cars ect. you cant please all the people all the time. I just ignore them and do MY thing and be happy about it. When Rolex,


Breitling and others drop their prices and give us 6 VP on shop where us everyday guys can afford it and not have to save up for 2-3 years just to buy 1 watch then maybe we wont hate them prices so much LOL. __________________ I hear voices in my head...watch voices...screaming...BUY ME!!!
