First of all THANK YOU very much for voting. 3623 votes clearly reflect your opinion, 3623 votes do also show your big interest and 3623 votes are an interesting result for the brands representatives visiting my blog and reading my posts and your comments.
Bonjour mes amis! What so you think? Do you like our vote?
What I see is that you guys seem to prefer brands with a lot of historical background, brands that have stories to tell and brands that have manufacturing power. What astonishes me is that Omega and Jaeger-LeCoultre are listed before Rolex. Normally what ever you write and tell about Rolex people like without even questioning it. By the way, the most viewed post of my blog is the one showing the Rolex novelties.
Also watch magazines use the power of Rolex to boost the sales. Every edition of a known watch magazine having a Rolex model on the cover sells better than with any other watch on the cover. The only problem these watch magazines have is: they can´t put only Rolex on the cover.
Concerning the poll you guys made the difference: it seems that your horological life is not only about Rolex. Very cool!
What surprises me a little is that there is such a gap between Omega and Jaeger-LeCoultre, whilst the gap between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Rolex is only 28 votes.
Omega apparently is doing everything right. The brand offers fantastic timepieces for still reasonable prices and Omega is one of the technology leaders of these days.
Jaeger-LeCoultre is getting stronger and stronger. More and more people seem to realize the real qualities of the manufacture in the Vallée de Joux.
Rolex performing well but is no longer the leader of the pack. In my eyes there is just not enough innovation. Just changing the color of dials and bezels is not enough.
Interesting also that IWC and Zenith do almost have the same votes? Must IWC now be worried about Zenith?
IWC became a much more lifestyle brand in the last years. This is good since many more care about IWC now. Before this step IWC was just a regional brand known in Europe and some other countries. The now international acting IWC just has to be careful not to forget its heritage and of course its very technical “ingenieur” background.
Zenith is going strong, no doubt. The iconic chronograph movement and the concentration on the brands rich horological history are definitively the right cocktail to be successful.
Quite weak in my eyes were your votes for Audemars Piguet. With all its background I would have expected the manufacture to perform stronger. Hopefully the new CEO François-Henry Bennahmias will now set course for a much brighter future.
Even worst is the result for Panerai. Is the hype over? In terms of movements available and quality offered Panerai has definitely done its homework. But, is this enough?
Breitling could also have done much better. People still seem not to be aware of the new manufacturing power and the variety of in-house calibers offered.
For TAG Heuer and Longines this a very close result, showing us that the two brands really compete for the same clients in the same segment. Yes, Longines is heavily attacking TAG Heuer!
TAG Heuer must improve its products offered in the middle price segment. The gap in-between the interesting high-tech developments and the average product is too big. Please listen to my interview with the new TAG Heuer CEO Stéphane Linder to learn more about his strategy.
Longines’ performance is just impressive. The brand is the leader in the middle price segment and still growing strong. If you seek big value for less money, today Longines is the brand you should look at.
Why Hublot took the last place I cannot explain. In my opinion Hublot offers a wide range of interesting timepieces and Hublot is generally seen as a cool and trendy brand. Now with the Unico in-house chronograph caliber the brand is getting even sexier …
Looking foreword to your comments!
