Brands we overlook or forget about

Brands we overlook or forget about

Postby koimaster » June 6th 2017, 10:33am

I was thinking about this as I posted an article on Chopard, a well established brand that I see few articles on. I can think of a few others that I forget about at times such as Perrelet, Montblanc, Chronoswiss, Union Glashütte just to name a few. I wonder if we as collectors just settle for a few brands we either just like or hear about more often than others.

In terms of vintage, what is "overlooked" is good, as I can have it for less.

Some brands can't sustain the hype, some start to produce watches so terrible or bland, that we actually prefer to forget about the brand itself. And some have marketing departments so inept, that they can't even successfully gain the attention of the WIS, let alone of the non-WIS.
