Forgive Me Father For I Have Sinned...

Whats your point of view on designer watches???

·

No problems with them ,they tell the time just as a watch should

·

I have no problem with it nore with those who wear.

I would just not. And I think they are only worth less thsn 10 percent of the retail price

I agree 100% with you. This is in fact my only designer watch, and I only got it because I took it in as a part of a trade last year (valued it at $200). Otherwise, I would've never purchased it for its $1500 retail price. I planned on re-selling it, but it just grew on me, and now it's my guilty pleasure watch. lol

I even own a LV watch myself along with my serious watches. If you like it wear it proud, embrace it, someone put their heart in to making that watch. it’s your money, and most of all it’s your wrist 😉

For me, it depends. I have a Bulgari Octo Solotempo. It’s a Genta design and uses a modified Vaucher movement.

My wife has a Chanel J12. It’s a model that’s been in their catalog for decades. It is an all ceramic case and bracelet with a very unique butterfly clasp. It uses the Kenissi movement also found in the Black Bay but with one more jewel to accommodate the date function. It’s also COSC certified. Chanel holds an ownership stake in Kenissi so they are definitely serious about their watchmaking.

I’m not opposed to fashion brands per se but they have to have some significance or inherent quality other than the printed name.

I don't think people have a "problem" with designer watches. I think the issue is when companies price their items at premium prices with a Swiss quartz.

Sample: Ferregamo for 1800 for a Ronda Z60

Then you find out the movement cost 30 bucks.

Again to each their own. I buy Jordans shoes so not only I pay 150+ for 20 bucks worth of uncomfortable shoe just for the design and the hype. Personally I like the watch 👍.

Wear what you like. Don’t listen to the noise.

·

For me, if the company making the watch is primarily not a watch company, then I just have no interest. Wear what you like though and enjoy, my opinion is just that, an opinion!

·

Some are fine if you know what your getting into. That one pictured tho, it's pretty cool.

·

As a former Gucci wearer, who am I to judge? It is not an unsightly watch at all.

·

It's certainly a nice enough, if derivative, style. But I can tell from your comments that it's obviously not long for your collection and will get the boot. And I think that's for the best. Personally, I couldn't look at that dial and not think, Why is a non-watchmaker on my wrist? It would be like looking down and seeing General Motors or Fender or Cheetos or something on there. Just a brand name, not a watchmaker.

See if you have it six months from now :)

·

Wear them if you like. No skin off my nose.

I wouldn't buy a Gucci or Michael Kors or Guess watch at retail because with those types, you really are just buying the brand name.

·

You like it or love it, it's yours!

Enjoy that watch!

Cheers!

A Fender or Gibson watch might be quite good.
