Watchgeeks: Checkmate or Too Late?

June 11, 2011

DAYS after Watchgeeks went white, Michael Davis finally addresses the issue: via Facebook. In short, he claims WG was hacked and a lot of damage had been done; that the site could be out of commission for a few weeks. But this seems so much balderdash. All hacker attacks these days are about information – passwords, personal information and financial information. Watchgeeks has none of this. And why would someone trash their servers – what’s the point? Server trashing and data destruction are carried out by governments against one another to slow weapons development. I don’t think anyone wants to slow the asshole development that goes on at Geeks – what would we laugh at?

NO, I think that this outage was the end result of Michael Davis’ reckless sticky trying to dissuade people from buying their pre-order Tourbillons from Renato. As is now the case with any Invicta misstep or lie, the party affected was quickly notified and claimed on Facebook to have taken some action. I asked Eyal Lalo via Twitter for a comment regarding this latest outage as well as the Renato situation and he has not responded to either of the inquiries.

Those that follow WGs probably remember similar unannounced outages after the DD Debacle, the Swinese revelation and the Manmade Natural Sandstone dials made their way to other forums and this blog and people broke apart and discussed the stories to reveal a very unflattering and dark picture of the Invicta Watch Company. Following the actual membership numbers revealed a decline following these outages. That seems to indicate that the former owners we’re trying to purge those lurkers who were gathering the evidence and presenting it to the public; as well as archiving it because WGs is notorious for deleting such items.

BUT now with Invicta actually owing the forum and such a long outage, one has to wonder if this is not just a purge of non posters but also a time out. A way to push out those active posters who are critical within the TOS of the site. They can then migrate to Watchlords, Watchfreeks, WUS and make Watchgeeks a place for those easily intimidated by the MODs and Yellow Shirt members.

Let’s check out those numbers when it comes back online; If that’s still possible when it does.

    Unbelievable but not Really !!! In my short time at WG’s (4 mos.) everything that has been stated here is almost verbatum to what I witnessed on WG !!! I am oh so glad that you have brought this to the light of day…. skelton…davis… laylo they blow each other, have never seen anyone attempt to so blatently to lie and expect no one to do or say anything about it !!!! What is it that draws people to follow Idiots like the skelton’s of the world ??? Are they that desperate for acceptance, is it because he was on tv…. these people need HELP….

  2. Tater Tits Says:

    Wow, I was banned because I said why it shouldn’t take 3 months for a easy repair from Invicta.

    Now I could care less and will NOT continue to further line their deep pockets!!

    Just what I’ve been waiting for. Michael Davis, stuffing that fat Sasquatch foot in his fat fucking shit pot. This Watchgeeks scenario cannot be summed up as a coincidence, at the least. This is “who done it” clean up at it’s finest. Regardless of Daniel Mink, and his credibility. I find his product better, more limited in production, built to a higher standard and the list goes on and on. IWG is the last company on earth that should bring ethics up in a conversation. While MD has a point, as to why something that was promised, hasn’t been delivered…he has no ties with Renato, and his comments are not of an administrator, but as of an employee of the company that OWNS a forum, that is supposed to be non-biased. If anyone goes on there talking about IWG like that, you’re banned before the stick of butter melts in mikes ass. Invicta is run like a crime. Selling substandard product as premium, by negating the truth until the item is sold out, then apologizing, saying “oops”. No, fuck that and your watches. Anytime a company has to break down what is considered “Swiss made”, isn’t. Eyal, mike and Jill and the whole company can go fuck themselves. In the bed they made. Peace!

    Just another lie coming out of Michael(rehabs for bitches)Davis shit hole. Those Geeks that kiss his ass should be drawn and quartered,sad fucks,all of them.. Another fine piece BS.

    Well, even a blind hog is write twice per day,and so it goes for this retched blog.Yes,watchgeeks is down,and yes it has towo do with the recent DAnial Mink blowjob,and mikies involvemnt thereiin .

    Butt watchgeeks is only going down temporarily,and when it relaunches,it will be better than ever !!!

    Once all the haters are banned,we are going to have a site specifically for outandabout leather queens such as myself,RipItRon,50mm&Up,Ukrany1 (he,s stillpost op though),SoberDave,DessertFoxy,and Strutn45 .

    Yeah we be some bad bitches !!!

    Cief OUT

  6. William Says:

    What are we to make of that run-on sentence? Either you’re inbred, or a barely conscious-Invicta shrew. Stay to your criminal brethren, wait for that super awesome pot of shit to come back online and take some literacy classes to help with that grammar.
    Also, you always find maggots near a steaming pile of shit. Well here’s to you pal!!

    The first four responses here are so right on the money.

    Michael Davis reminds me of this pair of brothers that were once given a business by their rich father. The two nincompoops didn’t know shit from Shinola, yet, they strutted around like they were the kings of the industry they were in. Naturally, they ran the place into the ground in a number of years, producing the very worst quality shit while patting themselves on the backs for it. I fantasize that, if their dad is still alive, he’ll find another business for them to fuck up.

    Davis, given an imaginary “position” at both IWG and WGs, isn’t a professional in any way; when the shit hits the fan, he claims to just read his little blue cards on ShopNBC and that’s it. When things are okay, he’s Mr. Technical Brand Manager, banning members and squashing QC complaints among the WG shitbirds and “administrator” of his faux serfdom. However, this time, by opening blasting Mink? Better, I think you’re right – it appears he’s gone over the line, perhaps for the last time.

    No Mulligans from this corner. When a salesman pushes crap on dupes, then never admits the stuff is garbage, he gets no pass from me. Should Renato fufill its orders as soon as possible? Absolutely. But does Renato’s fumble match IWG’s incredible string of FUBARs and outright lies? It’s not even close. A consumer would have to be the type of person that practically plays with his own poop to believe anything these shills tell us.

    Everyone knows that Michael Davis keeps a tight reign over WatchGeeks ever since it was taken over by Invicta. He daily personally reads all of the PMs, deletes posts, and bans any numerous members for the slightest of reasons. So, WatchGeeks goes offline the very hour that Michael Davis leaves for vactions; and just watch, it will come back online the very hour that he returns from his vacation. Anyone actually think that is just a big giant conincidence? No, WatchGeeks was no more hacked than was Anthony Wieners Twitter account. Fact is that Michael just simply pulled the plug on his way out the door so that he wouldn’t have to fret about it while on his vacation.

    Short tempered little mongoloid, they usually hate their life, but love their grey market watches.

  27. krane11367 Says:

    It is absolutely astounding, the WG mindset. They make a little circle on their forum to sit and whine and complain about what “haters” sites like this one and WatchLords are, but when let out into the wild, it’s all juvenile name-calling and mud-slinging and a level of discourse so low, it’s like watching monkeys play with their own poop.

    There is nothing more hypocritical than the WatchGeeks website, its mods, and their blinder-then-blind followers. And that’s all that’s left there; the real WIS have been run off one by one. All that’s left are, well…people just like who have posted here.

    Here’s an example of what a WG is like: MIchael Davis got back from his vacation, and, of course, WG is back up. He has issued multiple statements that WG was “attacked” or “hacked” – but today Eyal Lalo issues a statement on WG that the site was down for things like improvements and safeguards. That’s two entirely different stories, of course, since IWG proved a long time ago it can’t keep its BS straight from one mouthpiece to the next. On top of it, a particularly dim WG gets on and states that he thinks it was WatchLords that “hacked” the WG site – and then the WGs chime in, as if it was fact, as if there was any truth to it, as if these people have a clue about, oh, anything at all.

    I don’t know about you, better, but I think the shelf life on WG is only about two years past the expiration date. A more repugnant group of truly unprofessional people I have never seen, speaking of those who run it; the more base, cretinous horde of sub-human creeps – the WG “veterans” – certainly is starting to resemble the cast of “The Hills Have Eyes.”

  28. Mr. Depraz Says:

    Stop harassing the fine folks at WG’s, they are some of the nicest and honest people this side of the Mississippi. Just because Invicta is hated by everyone else in the watch world don’t make it right for yall to be so cantankerous and heathen like.

    Michael is back from vacation, refueled and ready to go get em, this man is our WG savior, he is a wonderful leader, and one whom we trust implicitly. Please give it up for the wonderful world of Invicta, this year will prove we are the juggernaut of horology, because, you don’t have to pay top dollar to get a top dollar timepiece.

    And if anyone reading this thinks I’m telling the truth, then yall can go and eat a shit sandwich and wash it down with some 1973 ripple!!!

    people who shop at the slop get dirty

    people who drink the ripple get crippled

    people who watch the shows they blow

    people who wear Invicta are on the nipple

    geeks are meek and very weak

    geeks stink like cheese and are freaks

    geeks are blind and not that kind

    geeks have watches that nobody seeks

  30. Field Tested Says:

    Has anybody noticed the “Lalo” the other night selling his coalition forces?

    He’s at it again, saying the watch is FIELD TESTED, I thought we went over this shit awhile ago, didn’t he admit this is just a selling tactic on wg’s?

    Just goes to show that Invicta can’t help but bullshit their Tv customers, while at the same time selling them an inferior built product. Wow, Lalo really can talk his lips off, lord knows how many sales speaking courses he has taken.

    Every HIGH END jeweler that I purchase my HIGH END watches from, say they wouldn’t wear or even accept an Invicta as a gift if their life depended on it, that they use the crappiest people in the business to make them…not a revelation obviously.
