Sterling Canyon reports that Swatch USA has filed suit against a Brooklyn, NY watch company as well as ShopNBC for selling a knockoff counterfit of a well known classic watch. The Hamilton “Ventura”, owned by Swatch USA is a half-round watch that can be seen being worn in many movies including the Men in Black series.
The president of the Brooklyn based company was even touted as saying on ShopNBC that his watch can be seen worn in the latest Men in Black movie. He denies any wrongdoing in the lawsuit. This isn’t the only time these shopping networks have been caught selling cheap imitations and making false claims. Several months ago, JewelryTV was accused of selling fake gemstones, passing them off as the real thing. Folks, shop at a legitimate jeweler. You get what you pay for.
