      I guess the buyer should take some responsibility but I have to say this behaviour is very schlocky, incredibly disingenuous and, regrettably, totally in keeping with the way Ideal World seems to now conduct business.

      But as I've said before, these are surely not the practices of a thriving, transparent and decent retailer. It does suggest that this company is now in very serious trouble if this is what it has to do to make money.


      What a terrible shame
      Having seen the WatchUSeek forum there was an ad saying "Want to build your own watch brand?", namely there are companies that will design and build a watch to your requirements, though some watches like the aforementioned Elliot Brown are independent from Ideal World. I'm guessing Kevski works for a watch distributor that also offers a similar facility as well as handling Vostok Europe and other brands; he freely admits to having had involvement in the design of their Bermuda watches for one thing.

    Indeed.

    There's nothing really 'wrong' with this from say the ASA's point of view, certainly not, but these watch sales and the 'Furniture' spew is a clear clarion call to what Ideal World is about now.

    Kevski likes to talk of 'movements' but I wonder how many of the people who are clearly so uninformed (or hoodwinked) as to buy this tatt would actually have look? If they did they'd discover that many of the reviews of these normally run of the mill movements are as cheap as chips.

    You can often buy them from as little as 8 and that's retail so how much do they cost wholesale?

    A good source for Watches for building your own Watch company is Million Smart in China. There is a good chance that dear old Kev gets a lot of his stock from there, as they produce 600,000 Watches each month. You choose what models you want to buy and the name that you want on the dials. Many so called mushroom brands come from there.

    These are a good read.

    It kind of sickens me that these shysters seem to get away with shilling these exorbitantly priced pieces.

    As much as I maintain that the buyer should do some research I understand that some people cannot do this.

    But make no mistake, it screams of a sinking ship. This is no way no build trust and loyalty, it looks to me like an outfit that's being ran by a private equity firm that solely cares about generating quick cash flow to pay off shareholders, which of course is exactly what it is.

    It won't work long term, and they probably don't care about that. I'd give it 12 months, tops

    Mock Gok couldn't be in the studio for tonight's skin products so instead they showed a variety of clips, therefore perhaps even the whole show could have been prerecorded? Genpleaseleave said that they have "superior collagen" (as opposed to average or rubbish collagen presumably) as well as spouting the usual rubbish about making the skin look shiny, which it did but so would many other products before they dry on the skin.

    Genpleaseleave is now on with Dormeo "brand ambassador" Dave who was inexplicably getting excited over their "blockbuster event" (he obviously needs to consult a psychiatrist), and everyone's buying one tonight including the producers in the gallery (allegedly). Apparently Dave 'discovered' Dormeo mattresses whilst travelling across Italy as a salesman, meaning that he must be the dullest person in the whole universe. Leaning Tower of Pisa? Michaelangelo? The romance of Venice? Nah, it's a certain brand of mattress for Dave

    And at 9pm tonight it's Perverse Pete with the Vibrapower...

    Ha Ha

    Of course Dopey Dormeo David is nothing directly to do with Dormeo really. They used to claim he was 'from' the company but it took us about a nanosecond to find out he's actually a jobbing actor (don't expect to recognise him from anything other than TV ads though).

    I suspect he has a Silentnight mattress at home

    well I hope Peter ''The most uninteresting man in the world'' Vollbreght (spelling almost certainly incorrect) doesn't see how excited he was, next to his mrs.

    The watches hours are a load of disingenuous rubbish, but what gets me even more annoyed than thinking about where they get the carp watches "assembled" is when they go on and on about how they are collectors items. They imply that if you buy one, it can only increase in value. Er, I think there's more chance of hell freezing over.
