not sure if this question has been posted, i looked through a lot of the posts on here but was not able to get an answer.
is there some sort of general market classification out there in the collectors' arena about which brand of watches would be classified 'high-end', which would be classified 'mid-range' and which would be considered 'low-end' ?
I have read some opinions on this, for example :
- some consider that any watch brand with their entry level watches costing $10,000 and up as 'high end', and any brand with their entry level watches costing under $10,000 as 'mid-range' (they didn't talk about 'low-end' though)
- some say tag heuer is mid-range, while some say low-end; some say omega is mid-range while some say high-end etc etc
Also, what categories are there ? some have said the categories are 'high-end', 'mid-range', 'low-end', but I have even heard some variants such as there being a differentiation between 'high-end' and 'luxury high-end' ??
Is there a website or some discussion on here or online that can be referenced regarding this matter ? Is there a detailed database that says which brand can be considered to be in which category ??
please share your thoughts!
