    An Invicta question

    The following remark has been posted on the Wiki:
    "Eyal Lalo, is a descendent of founder Raphael Picard is incorrect. Please provide documentation to verifiy the claim"

    Does anybody have any information to volunteer to clear this up?

    On the one hand, the company owner's ancestry is incidental to the reason for the wiki entry, which is specifically to cover Invicta's links to the Chinese watch industry; on the other hand, we need to make sure that whatever information that is presented is accurate.

    The Invicta Watch Group have consistently stated that Lalo is Picard's descendant. I wouldn't have thought this was a matter to be contested. I guess beneath the question is the deeper question of whether the present Invicta company popped up out of nowhere like a mushroom and claimed a defunct old Swiss brand. My instinct is to change the wording to say that Eyal Lalo 'claims' to be a descendant of Raphael Picard ... and then wait for the lawyers to call.

    I was checking the seagull page but i noticed that there is no mention of the TY2826 movement? Is it listed as a different model?

    TY28 is the export code for ST16. I'm not sure if the 26 suffix is the same.

    Simply write the truth as you know it: According to statements of company`s (spokesman, website, etc), Lalo is a descendant of...
    BTW, "Eyal Lalo" is an israely name. Could may well be a descendant of european immigrates to Isreal.

    Re: Chinese Watch Industry Wiki

    Stuhrling Original's caliber ST-90150 is most definitely a skeletonized Chinese Standard movement (I wasn't able to add it to the page on Sturhling Original, so I figured I'd post it here so someone who can edit the page can add it him/her self). I know this because 1) this caliber is what's used in the Stuhrling Original 'Montague,' and it is definitely a Chinese Standard movement (albeit a very well-finished one) and 2) I have actually modded this particular watch with hands from a pocketwatch purchased from one of those eBay "mushroom brands", which also definitely used a (lower-quality) skeletonized Chinese Standard movement.
