I saw it on Facebook I wish I’d seen it sooner, but I don’t pay much attention to Kickstarter watches or new Russian ones.
I hope no one here has been scammed by this.https://forums.watchuseek.com/f71/mcman ... st45246605
It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.
Nope...t'ain't my barrel 'o fishies…

$350 for a Russian watch with an Irish name on the dial? If you fell for this then you deserve it!

Yet another reason to avoid Kickstarter, but this one seemed pretty obvious
I bought a $100 drone set on KS a while back...it had exactly ONE flight, and ONE flight ONLY. It got to an altitude of about 60 feet, then decided to disregard all signals from me and crashed into a vast avocado orchard near our home, an orchard in which I am not allowed to set foot. I'm an experienced drone pilot who has flown many drones over the years, from the el cheapo types, all the way up to the big 'uns, costing into the thousands of bones, so there was no question that I knew what I was doing... ***sigh***
And KS didn't do ZIPOLA...de brassards!
