They're part of the Resultco company, they have about 17 different brands all with weird and wonderful stories about the brand and the watches, usually it's Emma "Miss Precision" Boydell that acts as the pretendy expert guest for them, one of their brands is on tonight Elevon.

Miss precision will be claiming tonight, they are made from high quality materials, with precision Japanese movements comparable in quality to top Swiss brands. In reality just run of the mill affordable/cheap watches from China with alloy cases and dirt cheap quartz movements. And the Breed watches are similar. ;)
Watching her now scrambling for superlatives for this tat 🤣

And she's off and running with her crap, in full con artist mode. ;)

Features from high end Swiss watches. :ROFLMAO:

£40 ali express watches are luxury quality compared to these things.

Laugh is that Antoine watch has an RRP of 400 euros, it only an alloy case and movement that's less than £10. :eek: :ROFLMAO:

50% gone already. :eek:

That just confirms that IW have a lot of truly gullible customers.

Better going to the H Samuels etc and getting Sekonda.

Oh the Gauge watch would look good in your collectors watch box. Behave yourself lass it's got a £2 quartz movement in it. It'll be nowhere near a collectors watch box. :ROFLMAO:

I think this just confirms what we we're saying the other day about selly telly, no way would you go into a Jewelers and have the staff spout the garbage that these con artists are coming out with.

Mike says the prices are mental, you're right Mike I don't know how they get away with charging so much. ;)

yeah but he's got an excuse, he's thick as mince, what's worse is she's also pronouncing it wrong and she's supposed to be the guest "Expert" for the brand, so should know how to pronounce his name. Although maybe even the brand don't know how it's pronounce properly either. :ROFLMAO:

The ultimate timepiece she says.

Yet it's got 660FT/220M on the dial. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Oh and the ISO tested crap again. And a reviewer says he thought they must have sent them a Rolex by mistake when he opened the box. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Maybe he got Rolex mixed up with Pyrex, or Trutex?

Mike was saying, everything was selling out with 15 minutes to go, and didn't know if they would have watches left to sell for 15 minutes.
On just the Elevon watches there was 7 watches in approx 17 different colours, after all his worrying about not having stock left, at the end of the show, only two of the 17 colours were sold out, rest are all there to buy. :rolleyes:

They've probably been taking lessons off the Bamix demo guy (pronounced BAmix) who insists on saying BAYmix. I think he probably thinks it makes him seem cool, as if he has inside brand knowledge.

It doesn't ...

I think you need to watch what you're saying Hammy!

I went in to a local jewelry store when lockdown was lifted to buy a watch strap. When the assistant produced it from the drawer they said:

'Not only is this faux leather strap a marvel of intricate manufacturing, cut from only the finest plastics in the smog filled industrial region of China, it is also testimony to the 1876 Chinese uprising that saw greater ties with the UK being established. Crafted out of love, desire, with a soul that makes this one of thee most sought after watch straps in the world ...

... that'll be £3.99 please, do ya want a bag with it?'


So just think on!!! ;)

On a serious note, especially when your buying something like watches, phones, PCs, or anything technical or specialised, nothing beats good service, being served by sales folk that are obviously interested in what they are selling and are knowledgeable about the products and who also don't treat you as just another customer to get rid of as quick as possible.

I often shop at a local Jeweler (Finnies) for my watches, especially the more expensive ones, not the cheapest place (although they do discounts in store, not online, if you are an existing customer) but they are family business and know how to treat customers, and how to handle the products they are selling, unlike IW shoddy handling of luxury watches. ;)

And she's off and running with her crap,
I liked the way she referred the viewer to You Tube to see how to work the divers elapsed time bezel. Not really rocket science is it🤣 and thats the divers bezel, that's on a watch purportedly based on aviator watches of the past🤔🤫

I have a question.

New skin care to me tonight, KDerm, Mason as usual waxing lyrical about it, wonder if the goddess will be trying.
Anyway, question is, as the models/presenters use all the many different skin care/creams, EG, protocol etc on IW and swear by them, which we are told many times have worked wonders to their skin, so when using so many, how do they know which one is working and how can they tell a new one is any good?
Surely if they are already using a few skin care regimes/skin boosting products, then using another on top of their existing routine, wouldn't give a true picture/test of how good or bad it is. Am i missing something? :unsure:

I saw a bit of the new skin stuff £70😳

Lyn the model mentioned how some of the creams she’s used in the past can be sticky (liz grant?) but this was lovely and she was going to buy the lot!

The before and after pics looked no different, apart from some tinted moisturiser seems to have been used on the after ones, to make the skin look nicer.

Seems the usual load of baloney
