Just so everyone knows in case they don't
This is FOX, no one takes FOX seriously as a "news" show....at least in Canada, we all know that if you try to take any of their stories at heart you'd do well to check and re-check the facts.
"An Alien had Geory Clooney's baby" magazines are more accurate gossip than the lovely people at FOX :D
They like to make stories up :D
I like the newscaster "Everywhere I go I see these huge ads for expensive watches" Come on budy going to JC penny doesn't count, his phrase FOXified would be
"Everywhere I go, I see Expensive watches I can't afford....why so Expensive"
Just as a example :D
P.S. I think Mr. Urquhart did great under the circumstances, first, the newscaster stacked the deck by being negative throughout the interview and when Mr.Urquhart tried to explain some simple points he just brushed him away in typical FOX style. The question is that Mr.Urquhart should of asked him was "how fancy is your home" I'm sure that those guys in the interview room arn't into watches, it is apparent but everyone has their hobby that they would spend lots of money on, cigars, firearms, houses, golf I know some people who would drop 10k on a golf club if it "upped" their game.
The newscaster shouldn't judge when he probobly has something in his life he would definatley "overpay" for.

I'm glad that "host" isn't on TV screens over here. What an utter buffoon. And I'm being polite seeing as how this is a family friendly forum.
It is true that majority of population don't really care much about expensive watches. However, I've encountered quite a few people wearing fancy watches over last several years.
On a side note, it is interesting to compare watch sales figures to that of luxury cars. Audi, BMW, and Mercedes all sell more than 1 million units per year (BMW being the number one seller, followed by Audi then Merc) but I believe none of them sell more than 1.5 million units. According to Herr Urquhart, Omega sells about 650,000 new watches per year and TAG Heuer sells around 800,000 (not sure about Rolex but would be interested to know if anyone has that information). Considering that watches are seen as a lot less "essencial" than cars these days, I'm astounded by their sales figures. Maybe this goes to show that although not everyone cares for luxury watches, many people still do.

"I wore a watch when I was a little boy"...er, wat?
The host comes across as thinking his opinion is all that matters. Mr Urquhart is all class and style. Omega 1 Fox 0.
Pardon me... i didn't bother to look at the clip. But this is just my thoughts on the watch business in the coming days, months, or even years...
Watches will continue to be a living tool until the day comes, when we won't rely on such tool anymore in the future.
The only thing is that, the number of watches with traditional SWISS MECHANICAL Movements will be facing a big challenge to the asian makes if the SWISS movement makers such as ETA don't wake up their idea on controlling their dispatch price of their movements and parts. If they're going to interfere with the market by controlling on part release to other european makers of movements, we will going to see lesser movements produced from the land of long history in watch making, hence causing the price to raise on finished watches, making it un-affordable to commoners, or even collectors... By then, chinese watches will be sought after products due to competitive in price and improving qualities...
