I never thought I would see that day that Invicta related drama would seem so incredibly boring compared to ABTW, RGM and Bremont.
I applaud all of the TV brands for plotting for months to deftly plant and create these vicious rumors and lies about other companies to take the attention off them. Bravo and well done.....

Hello Gentelman,

Thank you for the heads up about the thread on WUS.

RGM has never had a contract with any watch blog. We did have a verbal agreement with a blog that in the end the terms of the verbal agreement were interpreted differently by both sides. We have never had a situation like this before in RGM’s 22 years!

Regards,
Roland Murphy

The dispute is currently a private matter, as aBlogtoWatch does not feel that making it public offers a material advantage to the watch community at this time.
"Private," you say? If my privates were this public, I'd surely be cited for indecent exposure.

I think ABTW seems like a 5th grader in this drama going on. You have a problem with a brand, don't mention them and get over it.

This so called disclaimer and everything that comes afterwards is BS!

Now with regards to Bremont..... WTF?

I usually enjoy the articles, but the truth is that Ariel handled this poorly. As stated before, he should had keep his mouth shut or just explain everything from the get go.

Ariel is a lawyer so I assume he'll be careful to say just enough to avoid a slander lawsuit.

I'm also wondering if the issue is related to the contest they held in which the winner would go to RGM headquarters. That was a great contest.

As an investigator for a law firm, I second this.
