Has anyone here had any experience with Rufus Gerard watches? They have a banner on a different watch forum, but now they have a full page ad in the Feb 2008 WatchTime.
Seems like a silly name, and the website is kinda cheesy. This Rufuslin company says that it is the sole distributor of Rufus Gerard, Botta (allegedly from Germany) and Angular Momentum (allegedly Swiss).
I put this out not because I am interested in such watches (I do not have the intention of ever owning such a watch), but just that it seems kinda scammy. This Rufus claims to have a Japanese movement and they want to sell it for $8,800.00 USD. They also say:
"Rufus Gerard. A distinguished Canadian name in the Swiss-dominated global watch industry." *ahem*
I am Canadian. I am proud of that. But.....
I am familar with Angular which as I recall has their own unique and I believe patented movement. The other one I have never heard of. But You have to figure since there is something like 3,000 brands out there it's not surprising that we have not heard of them yet.
