    Besides having heard they have Chinese movements and are of iffy QC, I don't know much else. I may be wrong here but this brand may be of the 'mushroom'(?) type: they spring up all over overnight! lol

    Thanks guys! I had a sneaking suspicion they were suspicious. My mother-in-law is the person that asked me about them. She told me someone showed her theirs and declared the spent over $2K on the watch. Poor bastard.

    Usually when somebody declares what they spent on a watch, its a lie.

    Part of me wants it to be a lie and the other part wants it to be true.
