    Brand question, can I get a little help...

    Hey Cats,

    Found a watch today that peaked my interest at a Friends collectors shop, the brand is called Sarcar, please note I am aware of this brand's discussion here on WUS.

    What I need to know is where does it stand in your opinion of the high end marques we are all aware of, names like Omega, Rolex, IWC, Patek, etc. etc.

    My research tonight showed me all sorts of watch styles from this maker including some pretty amazing in class and beauty yet in some cases bloody gaudy and seriously ugly.

    Need a little help on this one folks so always any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    Peace,
    Preston

    Sorry, but not even in the same stratosphere as the watches you want to compare to. Now, if you're idea of a good watch is one blinged out in diamonds with a Ronda Swiss Quartz movement, then clearly these would are for you. But, in the world of better quality watches, the case is what surrounds the movement and the movement is what makes the watch. This company seems, IMHO to have it backwards. These are all about bling. Pure and simple bling. There's like zero chance one of these would EVER be strapped to my wrist. Even if given to me for free, I'd sell it and get a good watch.

    Don't tiptoe around the subject. Tell us what you really think.

    I did a quick google search because I've never heard of the brand before. I looked at the first page of images and said "next". They don't look to be tastefully done in my opinion. When I see a horse on the dial I lose interest.

    Thanks for your input. Thought I'd go up there for a comparison as a benchmark. Not at all interested in the bling scene myself and although I hold many of the high grade marques in high regard the brand I hold the highest regard for is Timex. So I guess maybe we can start from there and work up to the big dogs.

    Thanks for your input.

    Peace,

    You're kidding, right?

    Does it matter what kind of storied history they might have had? Many highly respected watch brands were decimated by the Quartz crisis, only to be resurrected in a form that would have made the founders of the brand cringe. If this brand did have a more respectable period in their history, it has long left that in the dust, and the current incarnation of the brand trades in tasteless monstrosities.

    It does to me, not only do I appreciate the early timepieces they produced, the few I've found online but I also like to learn more about them, seeing this vintage piece and with the research learning of some of the very nice watches they once produced I would like to know more.

    This place is about horology, is it not?

    Don't jump to conclusions.
    At some point, vintage Sarcar watches used to be powered by great movements, respected by any WIS.

    Here are a couple of photos of a lady Sarcar watch powered by a Blancpain (!) movement:




    These are not my photos, I hotlinked them from one of my local forums. I'm no expert in Sarcar watches, but I don't think it is fair to completely dismiss this brand, even though some might argue that what they manufacture nowadays is all that matters.
