    The meaning of "high-end" watch is?

    I thought I'd share this news story about a Gucci watch that was stolen from a Macy's in San Diego: PD: Man Steals High-End Watch From Macy’s Department Store | NBC 7 San Diego

    Is "high-end" just another word for "expensive?"


    HEADLINE: Man Steals High-End Watch From Macy’s Department Store

    "The San Diego Police Department released surveillance photos Friday of a man accused of stealing a high-end wristwatch from a department store after posing as an interested customer and trying on the watch.

    "According to police, the heist happened at around 8:45 p.m. on July 6 at the Macy’s department store at Westfield University Towne Center (UTC). The suspect acted like he was interested in purchasing a Gucci watch and a sales clerk in the jewelry department allowed him to try it on.

    "Once he had the watch on his wrist, the suspect ran out of the store before the clerk could stop him."

    'Is "high-end" just another word for "expensive?"'

    --I think so. What else would it mean?

    High-end = expensive.... correct.

    Expensive is relative.

    Re: The meaning of "high-end" watch is?

    "High-end" is a word you use when your "low-end" enough to not know the name of what you are talking about.

    To the non-WUS, the word/words "High-end" convey the more pertinent information thats relevant to the context of the story.

    So yes, I think High-end is just another word for something more expensive than average.
