Regarding the transaction with Loco Louie

Recommended Posts

Ive got my tracking finally for 3 watches, after weeks of waiting and getting the exact same wechat messages as some of the other members on rwi / rwg. 

Shows it was sent out yesterday, fingers crossed everything is fine

Well only a few members got their tracking,  most are still waitin and being ignored. 

I honestly don’t know what’s he’s up to. Saying everything will be normal on Monday, turns up it’s the same as before. 

I’m still being ignored, he still won’t ask ems to check up on my transit status despite remaining at departed from Guangzhou for 20 days now

I suggest it's cashflow - he's been jetting around the Pacific Basin and that won't be cheap. 

Some of you may have paid  Business Class without realising it until now.

It isn't helpful to post speculative statements without anything to back them up. It's unfair and toxic to the person in question, and also to the community as a whole.

Despite the delayed shipments, I just hope that we still have the decency to accord him the space to defend himself.

When a seller blatantly ignores your messages and has failed at communicating for weeks on end, nevermind fulfilling the product in question, I think one has the right to speculate something is grossly amiss..

Frankly speaking, he reapt what he sowed. Decency? Fairness? Was he fair and decent to the buying members of the community by stringing them along with barely an update, not addressing customer complaints and providing tracking that went nowhere?  He just kept on accepting order after order while still continuing this bad customer service.

Don't blame people for speculating what has happened in the absence of real information. To  quote a line from a great movie and use it as it applies to this situation  "They're so thirsty for it, they'll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there's no water, they'll drink the sand."

And please, let's not blame all of this on the death in the family (I will give him the benefit of the doubt because it's only a complete and utter trash of a person to invent something like that). That only happened at the end of last year. His problems started way before that.

I don't know about you, but his customers have been for the most part decent thus far in dealing with the whole situation and have practiced maximum restraint.

This is not a new story unfortunately.  This has happened too many times before and this won’t be the last.

At least now, if he disappeared you only lose 2/3 of your money.

J/K ... I hope everything will work out for everyone!

Heh, then he sure has it better than me. I ordered one and if he disappeared, I would be losing 100% of my money I sent him.

No dude, my QC stage was perfect and he automatically pointed out all things that needed to be swapped when I had my QCs, the hands were scratched at the second QC and he just replaced them for me. 

Literally my watch had perfect cyclops alignment and the markers on dial were all correct. 

Hope you get yours soon man.

Thanks for letting me know. How are you liking the gold plating? Also how is the finish on the side of the gold link?

The gold wrapping on the links are really thick, and the side are plated, hence you would see a small line separating the plated gold and wrapped gold. This is only noticeable when you use a magnifying glass and look real close to notice that line. 

 

So so far the gold colour looks really on point to me

That's a stunning time piece, I'm happy everything worked out for you. I think the problem here was just on how business is done over there, seems to me that over there it's a big no no to say you're are behind or not able to cope with something so they just stall.

It's an easier adjustment to figure out how to do business then to figure out how to make great watches. Looks like Louie has the latter down, hopefully he can find some aid in the former & isn't too discouraged to get back to providing a great niche for our community. Evolution... Hopefully mine arrives soon as well. Congrats to anyone whose receiving! Rare pieces

Loco isn't replying to my messages on wechat lol, he must be getting lots of messages. So we're sure that loco is just really busy, and that he's not trying to scam us because he's actually shipping out watches?

Well he can prove it by shipping everyone's watches (shipping a couple isn't proof, he could have just sent them to string the remaining customers along). Of course he contests the rumors about his operations in Korea but at this point, who would believe him? He did say before RWI shut down that he got a partner. As to how this partner will help him we don't know (as he does not seem to have improved the current Watch Archive operations as of yet).
