    High-end Off Brands?

    are these brands such as Perrelet, Ebel, Armand Nicollet, Eterna etc which have a very high retail price, worth the retail price in terms of there finish and quality of the movement? and just dont sell because theyre not omega or rolex, or other high end companies? or are they lower end and not such good quality and the pricing is hokey pokey excuse my language?

    i really need some help with this cause if theyre worth theyre price, than id rather these than the well known brands.

    What makes you think they don't sell? Those are some smaller brands but I see many Ebels and Eternas here.

    The highest end brands don't need to sell as many. Low volume = high demand = higher prices = more prestige
    Current rotation (alphabetical order):
    Fortis: B-42 Marinemaster
    Glycine: Airman SST Chrono
    Hamilton: Intra-matic, X-Wind
    Oris: Artelier Small Second Pointer Date, TT1 Small Seconds 1000m Diver

    Not high end in reality.....Ever heard of a Morgan motor car?
    Just because they are not Universally sold, has little to do with quality.
    Some companies are happy doing what they do.

    First, you have to think about what you define as high end since Rolex and Omega aren't high end at least in terms of the high end sub forum here. So with that definition in mind none of those are high end. Now to the heart of your question, all those companies offer quality "reasonably" in line with their price points, but they will all sell for much deeper discounts than many other more mainstream mid-tier companies particularly Rolex and Panerai. In the end if you shop well enough the price you pay will be market adjusted to reflect the value placed upon them by consumers. In the end they can all be excellent buys when gotten at the proper discount.

    but are they worth theyre retail, are they on the same level as the other companies who have same retail prices and sell for that much or just alittle less? like omega has a retail price of 6000, you most likely wont get a new one for 50% off, and many times in my opinion omega is worht the retail. are these companies worth the retail? eterna, and perrelet, ebel, armand nicolet?

    I can't speak to the brands you mention, but personally I don't think brands such as Breguet, Blancpain, Lange, or Rolex and Omega are worth their retail prices. If it weren't for a robust pre-loved market and ADs who will deeply discount, I wouldn't own any of these.

    Sorry but that makes not so great. See im looking to buy a watch from these companies, i want to avoid going through the hassle of ordering and then trouble with returns. Id rather ask some one who knows more than i do, either through what ones heard or personal experience.
