while pictures are nice and help to reinforce the post they should not be pivotal to the veracity of the thread. the problem first and foremost lies with invicta followed by the watch zombies who doubt anything but songs of praise for invicta. mbgalg View Public Profile Send a private message to mbgalg Find all posts by mbgalg Add mbgalg to Your Contacts

Pics are good but with the sheer volume of bad watches being posted lately I think the concerns are legit. Some dont know how to post pics so I dont disregard any posts just because there is no picture. I do discount if the member starts a thread and are not heard from again in the same thread.There have been similar problems with certain models being posted too. reliefcp View Public Profile Send a private message to reliefcp Find all posts by reliefcp

I think you both make a valid point...Look at the Post called "JIM" about 2 pages back...we all had fun with that post because the OP that posted it never responded to anything ..including pics. I like to give the benefit to the person posting there issue..it is only fair. If that person stirs the pot or the issue is meant to provoke us...I think the members on this site are smart enough to smell a rat. There are a great group of guys on this site and enjoy the interaction among us...we can all agree to disagree at times...thats what makes it fun...plus I get to laugh alot.

Some of the legitimate issues's can be traced back to a larger run of TTV's.When you research it a little most of the claim's are against certain models.The Troll's on the other hand dont attack those models since they are already under fire.they tend to bring up issues concerning model's that have a strong track record,casting doubt and fear with the rest of the line.The way I see it if you are going to go out of your way to join here then post an issue that has you outraged,then offer proof so that we can all join you in your outrage.Even an invoice would do to prove they even own the watch. desert rex View Public Profile Send a private message to desert rex Find all posts by desert rex Add desert rex to Your Contacts #10 Today, 02:50 PM

I believe that a problem like hands falling off a pic is nessasary,me i am picture challenged,so i would not complain if i could not provide proof,but as it was said you could stage that if you wanted to,but i w3ould hope nobody would do that,jmo guys __________________

I don't know how your gonna enforce it. I think if you don't post a pic or have some kind of proof and don't answer any requests of proof then we as geeks should just ignore posts like that. I read alot of posts and I tend to think that real watchgeeks are smart enough to tell if it sounds fake or not. Just my opinion. leelovesbug View Public Profile Send a private message to leelovesbug Find all posts by leelovesbug Add leelovesbug to Your Contacts #12 Today, 03:54 PM

Pics would be great! The recent Dubois-Depraz Speedway issues were listed by many . . . but I only saw one picture of an actual problem - which leads me to believe that it may not have been as huge an issue. Not trying to minimize the fact that there may have been problems, but there was very little evidence of it. And posts that just list watches as "defective" aren't helpful either . . . be specific with the problem. __________________ I can only hope to be the person my dog thinks I am . . .

I agree with LEE, we all read enough that we should know if the person is on the site most of the time. Would think chances are they are legit __________________

It sounds as though the suggestion is that unless photo "proof" is posted, complaints should be considered false or invalid. Is that the intention? If I say (for instance) that the small second hand of my Bolt chrono fell off or that the chrono sweep hand on my 7750 Pro Diver doesn't reset back to 12, how is a picture useful in validating it other than to convince readers that it in fact did happen. What is there to misunderstand about "fell off"? Why would anyone care if readers believed it or not? Why would anyone be compelled to provide proof to be taken seriously? The complaint is the complaint - if your Bolt small second hand fell off as well or your 7750 doesn't reset either, perhaps you'll chime in to say "me too". Otherwise, readers are free to ignore the post or comment as they see fit as with any post. Trolls in general are pretty easy to spot due to the inflammatory and provocative nature of their posts.

While pictures are nice and do support a defective claim,..........I will spend my money on a watch, not a camera thank you. The camera I have does not take a picture worth posting. Buy enough of a certain brand and you will not need to see a picture any more.

I can understand why members would want to see a pic of the problem if the OP is new and also if he/she doesn't respond to questions in a thread they started. It made me a little suspicious and I'm new here. barnes View Public Profile Send a private message to barnes Send email to barnes Find all posts by barnes Add barnes to Your Contacts #17 Today, 04:17 PM Altaz Senior Member Senior Geek

An invoice? Are you serious? Are you the Invicta Brand police? I do agree that pics may help but some of us (me included) don't know how to post pictures on this forum. I have put up posts when my experiences have been good and also when bad. I've been a pretty active member on WGs as well.

How about when it wont stay wound or if there are certain other problems that pics cant show.Both of my recent Invicta issues that even if I post pics it doesnt show the problem. reliefcp View Public Profile Send a private message to reliefcp Find all posts by reliefcp Add reliefcp to Your Contacts #19 Today, 04:32 PM tampa8 Senior Member Super Geek

I am no fan of Invicta's QC. But I'm quite sure some posts just not valid. So that said, though some don't like it, I rely somewhat on the amount of posts by the person. That doesn't mean I immediately disregard someone with one or two posts, but it does mean I will believe someone with more posts with less scrutiny. __________________ You mean what time is it now? tampa8 View Public Profile Send a private message to tampa8 Find all posts by tampa8 Add tampa8 to Your Contacts #20 Today, 04:40 PM

C'mon now, common sense would dictate that ALL the hands missing out of a watch would be a zillion to one odds. I believe one hand could have fallen off but it would be still inside the watch. ALL of the hands missing and not in the sealed case is just stupid. And thats just my opinion. I'd sure like to see that watch. And I agree with Jim B. Although I may not personally know all the geeks on this site I do recognize the more frequent visitors by their avatars. leelovesbug View Public Profile Send a private message to leelovesbug Find all posts by leelovesbug Add leelovesbug to Your Contacts #21 Today, 04:50 PM

All I'm saying is this,If someone is going to make a claim,say( my Invicta came with no movement ).then disappear with out any response.it's most likely bogus.Too many times members with bleeding hearts actually try to console an op like this ,and he's already left.But if I think someone is lying,then yes I'm going to challenge him and request he offer a shred of proof,just as some members might be willing to believe in every troll that post here ,and try to comfort him and his needs. desert rex

I do remember that thread and I thought it may be a troll too. I just dont want to discount people who dont know how to post pics or dont have a camera and they might need our help. Like the calibration of certain movements. I read a thread recently that a WG thought their watch was defective but didnt know how to recalibrate the movement.

I cant even post a pic,so I am fully aware how difficult it might be for a new or even a veteran member to do so.I know there are going to be issues,and there is nothing wrong with posting them here,I'm just refering to the hit and runners that enjoy doing this to upset things. When 5 or


6 pages offering help has gone by and has been ignored,something is not right Now yesterday I was the first one to read his thread,and when I went to his home page he was already logged off.why ask a hot question then leave. I believe we think the same on this,and other member's might have miss read my intentions to call all issues a trolling expedition,which is not my position at all. But even I if I had a bizzare incident would wait for responses back if I had no pic to show.

POST A PIX if your recent buy is not right its only right
