Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Middle Breitling for me also, but any aspirations for a vintage inspired Carrera might be misplaced on my behalf.
Hopefully TH will restore some cred with the anniversary Monaco.
Taliking of anniversary’s, happy 15th and thank you Jeff for this awesome place.
Discussion Topic -- How do two brands with relatively comparable
: heritages [awesome chronographs from the 1940s through 1960s],
: both seeking to hit the same basic price point [$5,000 to
: $7,000, plus or minus], and using legendary names [Carrera and
: Navitimer], end up with such radically different lines of
: watches [both introduced over the last two weeks]?
: Of course we understand that the brands are not trying to sell
: watches to the old vintage guys, but how can two approaches to
: the market for new watches be so different? Will both lines be
: successful commercially? Are the different approaches to these
: inevitable, in view of the brands' larger catalogs?
: I know absolutely nothing about branding / product development /
: marketing, so let's have some views from folks who know more
: about these things.
: Finally -- which one of these seven would you want to wear?
