    How would you rank these 3 premium brands?

    Could be in terms of your preference, perceived reputation, quality/value, horological standing/technical prowess.

    The brands I am talking about are Jaeger-LeCoultre, Glashuette Original and Chopard (L.U.C. - the Louis-Ulysse Chopard "manufacture").

    This is my personal preference - probably, a combination of % of total offerings that I like, and the watches that I REALLY want!
    1. Jaeger-LeCoultre
    2. Chopard L.U.C.
    3. Glashuette Original

    What would be yours?

    That's a tough one, I think you may have it ranked right. But if I were to base my ranking on which brand I would buy from first, I'd go:

    GO
    JLC
    Chopard

    My personal preferance (Maybe a little biased)

    1. GO
    2. JLC
    3. Chopard

    Although GO is my favorite (and a relatively young company compared to the others) I would never turn down a JLC or a Chopard. They are both awesome brands. JLC has excellent heritage & movements - and Chopard has some attractive sports models.

    My preference would be:

    JLC
    GO
    Chopard

    It's a tough choice between JLC and GO, but i gotta give it to the Reversos and Ultra thins. The only Chopard I really like is the LUC 1.96.... it would be a tough choice between a Reverso, Pano, and the 1.96 though.....

    Though JLC has the reputation for making great movements and history, I'd have to say GO b/c I prefer more of their models across their sport and dress lines. Some Chopard divers are nice.

    For me, it would be

    1. GO
    2. JLC
    3. Chopard

    I do not own a GO or Chopard, so I am biased too.
    JLC
    GO
    Chopard.
