WTB - Any TC Parts, mid-cases, bezels, dials, hands, and bracelets

42 posts in this topic

 

I'm receiving quite a few emails lately from customers wanting TC builds, but with TC no longer making them, I'm trying to to source any used TC parts that I can, and then build watches on demand using TC parts, so if you have any TC parts, please drop me a pm, thanks. 

 

I couldn't find a wanted section, so hope this is the right place?

He's just not currently building watches, taking an undefined break

I just wish we all had a definitive accurate account of what exactly is indeed going on with Thomas, far too much speculation going on.

Indeed, I have read about the certain things which others are saying, but I refuse to comment until we actually hear from Thomas, I really thought he would have the courtesy to at least post an announcement of sorts in public rather than informing mods across the boards to hide his section from public view.

 "and then build TC watches on demand,"

 

I am sure you have the permission of Thomas to take his overload?

surely this would make these SSTEAL builds 

 

TC builds would suggest they're  built by TC, but as he is no longer in the picture they're absolutely not his builds

 

 

just my take

"Nobody said they will be TC builds, I'm simply using the last of his parts that's all."

 

Nothing at all wrong with that. 

A good idea imho.

 

How come?

1...TC did not make the parts, he assembled 'TC Watches' from parts he gathered up.  

2...TC looked long and hard for some of the parts and had them made to his specs but he has no claim to them once they are removed from the TC bags. 

3...When the parts are out of the TC signed bags, they are simply 'replica watch parts'.

 

A watch made out of 100% TC parts but assembled by someone else may or may not be a 'TC watch'. 

Say what?

1...If you have a watch made out of '100% TC Watch Parts' and assembled by TC...it is a 'TC Watch'.  No question.

2...If you have a watch made out of '100% TC Watch Parts' and assembled by Joe Anonymous...what is it then? 

3...Did TC put each and every 'TC Watch' together himself making them 'Official TC Watches'...or not? 

Who knows?

 

 

:pimp:  It all makes my head hurt...

LOL, I like to think using first rate parts to get the desired outcome.

That's not strictly correct is it now, it's only a Rolex when it's built in their factory, buying all the bits and bobs separately and cobbling them together on your kitchen table doesn't make it a Rolex, only the real deal comes with their papers, same as the TC comes with his. Taking advantage of TC's good name is just poor form really.

Gotta disagree.....isn't that what all the rep makers including tc do already? Market demands is how I see it, give people what they want when for whatever reason they can't get it, that's how I see it

Well if you follow that argument to it's conclusion, whatever it's merits or otherwise, then you should be on TRF ranting about fakes including TC

It seems really hilarious to me that folks in a rep forum suddenly get into a discussion about "IP-rights". :rofl:

Indeed, its laughable, and I don't see that I am doing anything wrong whatsoever, I purchased the parts in the photos above, they are now my property.
