renato on shop

Post by fatman » Mon Apr 02, 2012 5:08 am

Were they on last night/ early this morning.
My Dish guide was messed up and I could not stay up until midnight to see.
Or is it starting tonight?

Sadly true, Mark; I recall not being able to afford anything they had for sale back when I first started watching Shop back in late 2008. It was only when Shop started offering them on their "auction" feature that I was finally able to afford one. Then the "top men" started an ever-increasing trend of almost desperate price cuts on existing Renato stock. Before you knew it, you could pick up a quartz Cyclops or even a Vulcan for right around $250 or so. Now it's back to pricing that only some can afford, and those people don't spend a whole lot of time buying much of anything on TV shopping channels. It's deja vu all over again...

Or maybe I'm just full of you-know-what... :suspect:

Mark IMO I would hope you are right but I have a feeling we are both wrong. Mort what I think we are seeing is the end of the old stock. MZB is a the company that bought them, they also bought XO Skelton now XOsomething with prices in the 120-200 on shop. MZB I think will use that model of cheap watches with Avi presenting them. I also will say this not everyone is on watch forums or know where to buy them when they weren't on the air which might accout for the prices they set out with. This will be fun to watch in the coming months as it will us much to talk about. Shock and Awe as the saying goes either way it will give me a laugh or two.

I think it was Watch Noob who dismantled a WildeBeast. He found it to be a perfectly acceptable $200 watch. Anything above that, you are probably just paying for the design.
