    Pretty funny that Allison brands his watches as Tat. Sounds about right.

    What I don't get is why these people complaining and believing TA, don't just come here and read the facts.

    Because ultimately it's one Internet based source against another. And rather than dig a little deeper to uncover the fact that there's no smoke without fire, they would rather believe that they are getting a beautiful watch for a bargain.

    Exactly the problem. And I'm sure what they'll receive is a perfectly decent Chinese watch made with stock parts for pennies on the dollar for what they spent. And they'll be perfectly happy with their watch not understanding what they actually purchased. I feel sorry for those believing they're getting an heirloom watch to pass down as some may think. If they're happy then great but they probably could get the same quality for 4-5 times less on eBay.

    Incidentally I don't know if anyone noticed that they've been selling the "resonance carousel" movements and the tourbillon movements on eBay.

    His shenanigans are so crazy, so stupid & transparent, really, that I find them highly entertaining!

    Sadly, but almost surprisingly so, there are victims…

    Re: Terry Allison Kickstarter (Scam?)

    So, you think he has the watches?
    And him naming that one guy as a child molester....knowing the bots would pick it up...unbelievable!!
    Good thing for him it wasn't a Texas man....In Texas that is libel.

    Incidentally, the movement (designed and prototyped in America ) looks like a Shanghai Watch Factory T02Z, which has been around for several years now.
    Not a surprise to me.

    I don't want to be associated with Terry in any way! Fact is I asked him to remove my name and website from his Kickstarter project and then sent Kickstarter a complaint about my name and website being in his project without my permission. This was done under my Kickstarter account and not a false identity.

    His recent statements about me are false except for the fact that I did work for his forums back then. But that is a loooong time ago, and I'm sorry I did.

    So Ernie, did you receive a fine golden Montre Allison watch for 25 minutes of loyal services?

    You remember? Hope you got the cintrée model with the famous golden rotor and the magnificent little golden chain on the front?

    One Montre Allison just sold on eBay… for $150

    I tell you, I'd be on the phone with the Colorado Attorney General if my money was being held by him or kickstarter.

    And if kickstarter suspends or stops funding, they better give it back to the investors or they're stealing.
    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
