It’s a LIFETIME membership... so it averages out to less than $5 per month.

It’s peanuts. Go for it!!! VIP access and pricing!

Total scam !
They are good entertaining people but total chaotic business wise
They are not disciplined at all
Very high risk behavior
Will never feel comfortable buying or selling anything from them

Best way to make a $2,000,000 storefront is simply to put a few Daytonas on display.

It took me about 4 videos to decide I didn’t like these guys and this thread just reinforces my opinion.

Timepiece Gentleman “fundraiser”

I have been enjoying TPG’s videos every week. Great content. But I can’t say that I’m going to be wiring them $2000 anytime soon to help outfit their new store. (They’re asking 1000 of their fans to donate $2000 towards a $2 million renovation of their new store. In exchange you become a “vip” customer and will be offered their leftover must-sell inventory at wholesale prices as a perk)

The way I see it, If they can afford to drive lambos, enjoy $17,000 steak meals and have million dollar personal watch collections, they should pay for their own damn store renovations.

Now if they said pony up $2k and we’ll give you a small % of our profits each year...that’s a different story. But just imagine how hard it will be to compete with 1000 other people for their “flash sales” on this exclusive VIP Facebook page.

The whole thing is in poor taste IMO. What do you all think about it? Am I being too critical?

I agree 100 percent, I’m still going to watch the videos and I like the content.

However this whole thing to me isn’t a cool move. Maybe they should stop buying RMs and invest their $ into 5e business

Exactly! I definitely don’t agree with their business decisions...that investor they have is going to lose his 1 mil investment IMO. These guys are living their best life like Dan belzarian did with his company IGNITE (using other peoples’ money)

And this whole 2million investment for renovating their new store is so moronic. Everything is flash with these guys. All sizzle, no steak.

You started a social media company with low overhead. Step two buy the largest brick and mortar you can afford and yolo your profits into watches and sushi. Winning.

Just cannot understand why the need to bring such topics in the Rolex/Tudor watch only forum. Stuff like this belongs on the so called sociel media sites and not on TRF.

If they were offering a share in the business and were willing to go through due diligence then maybe.

Churches, charities and politicians are at it all day long. It's a model that is known known to work. It's how the rich stay rich.
