Because crowd sourcing websites have such high standards? They are Libertarian paradises, where the market decides your fate, and regulations are minimal.
What has this guy done that's illegal? If instead, he had sourced a catalog watch from Shenzhen, China, and merely added his name or logo, how is that any different? The Haldor Abissi is just a Nakzen SS9049G 1000M diver with different branding.
"The Slovenian-based Haldor Watch company got their start on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo with the goal of creating a high-spec dive watch for as low of a price as possible. They met and exceeded their funding goal, and were able to produce their Abissi diver and deliver it to their backers. The Haldor Abissi retails now for about 600 Euros for those outside of the EU, which translates to about $637 for those of us in the States, and for that coin you get a whole lot of watch (literally and figuratively)." ~Worn and Wound review
This implies are very interesting point...
If watch blogs (like worn&wound etc.) aren't able to do even minimum research and warn readers about this rip-off, then what good are they? What's the point of watch media outlets if all they do is parrot press releases?
