    That's an insult to clowns, at least they can be funny, this guy is just an annoying lying imbecile.

    Did you see him selling the Almaz chrono, spent about 5 minutes explaining all about the Bronze case, grade of bronze and quality, and how it will Patina over time etc etc. I'm shouting at my TV that it's not bronze it's Rose Gold Plated, i have the Bronze Almaz and it's an Automatic watch not the chrono he was trying to flog. Eventually he meekly said a quick sorry after he received an email from Kevin Reynolds pointing out his error, it was one of those swiftly move on moments.

    Another clown is that Shawn guy, the crap he is spouting about the quality of the watches on the shows tonight is mind boggling, Swiss Legend is one of the biggest and best Swiss brands , and the way he handles the watches is shocking, he had two, three and sometimes four watches over the back of his hand at the same time, with the crowns from the watches all rubbing the watch case next to it, very unprofessional. I've also come to the conclusion that the guest guy Thomas Tope is as devious as the presenters, some of his comments are way over the top as well, was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt before, but not now that he revealed his close connections with these brands and their owners. One thing I've always noticed with Earnshaw watches, for all the quality of the movements or so say the presenters, they never mention the movements come from China, the only time they mention movement origins is when they have the odd Swiss Made special they do.

    Hopefully ASA act on my complaint, they emailed me on Friday to check first if i was a competitor or in the industry, replied I just a viewer they came back explaining what would happen next, ie they would be requesting the relevant programmes from Ideal World (told them I've have the programmes as video files on my PC if Ideal world aren't forth coming) so they can check my complaint, if the find they are in breach of the codes as my complaint suggests, then they will refer it to an ASA Investigations team for further consideration.

    Justseen Rob Locke for the first time on IW, not sure how long he has been there? Doesn't take long for talking bollocks once you are settled in at IW it seems.

    He was presenting a Salter Air Fryer and came out with this gem..."have you ever been on holiday in a country where it is hot and windy and you tan really quickly? That's the wind whipping that heat around you. It is literally cooking you, and this is what this cooker is essentially doing"

    Mr Locke, you tan because of the suns UV rays, you don't tan because of heat you twunt.

    I actually bought a Swiss Legend watch off them a couple of weeks back, which I returned due to it's humungus size and faulty crown.

    They always say that these watches have a sapphire crystal. Well in fact it says on case back that it's something called 'sapphlex', whatever that is? So more mis-truths.

    That's one of the main gripes I have with their watch shows, lack of detailed information. I know Kevin Reynolds is often criticised, but one thing i do like about when he is on the show, is that he at least gives you more technical details about the watches than the others do, he always lets you know about the really important details you need to know before buying, ie case size, materials used in construction and the movement in the watch, the rest just waffle on about irrelevant nonsense that is of no use when trying to make an informed decision as to whether you are purchasing a decent watch or not or whether the watch is right for your wrist size etc.

    "Sapphlex" was developed by Seiko, although don't think they use it anymore, it's Mineral glass with a Sapphire coating bonded on to it.

    For information, I did notice a picture on Swiss legends web site about assembly of their watches, the picture they have is taken in the Roamer / Swiss Military building in Möhlin, Switzerland, so I assume they have a contract with Swiss Military to assemble their watches, Swiss Military is part of the ILG group which which has quite a few licensed watch brands in their portfolio, ie Timberland, Police, Ben Sherman and Cerruti 1881 watches, why Martin Cunningham (he works for ILG, UK & Ireland) is the guy for all those brands on Ideal World.

    Hayley was on at 1pm with Thomas Tope whom she introduced as the guy who would tell you all about the watches coming up. TT said he would try and if he didn't know, he would make it up..............Hayley laughed and said 'we're on the telly, you can't do that'......
