    A small experiment...

    So, I don't wear my Orient Mako XL enough and I wear my Deep Blue Sun Diver quite often but whenever I wear either of these watches it makes me think of how great they are for the price. I was particularly thinking of this as it relates to 5 of my many bracelet watches that I wear often... My Omega, Maurice Lacroix, Ball B&O, Orient Mako XL, and Deep Blue Sun Diver. This led me to run an experiment this past weekend with my wife and two of my sons. I asked them to rank these 5 watches based on their personal likings and then rank them from most expensive to least expensive from their best guess.

    I was a little surprised by the results but I felt they were a little influenced by the fact that my wife and sons know a little about my watches so I decided to survey 7 other people outside of my house. So, I laid the watches out, had them examine them and.. here are the results.....

    Subject #1

    Likes ..Omega, Orient, Deep Blue, Maurice Lacroix, Ball
    Price ..Orient, Deep Blue, Omega, Ball, Maurice Lacroix

    Subject#2

    Likes ..Orient, Ball, Omega, Deep Blue, Maurice Lacroix
    Price ..Ball, Omega, Maurice Lacroix, Orient, Deep Blue

    Subject #3

    Likes ..Ball, Omega, Maurice Lacroix, Orient, Deep Blue
    Price ..Omega, Deep Blue, Orient, Ball, Maurice Lacroix

    Subject #4

    Likes ..Deep Blue, Orient, Omega, Maurice Lacroix, Ball
    Price ..Orient, Omega, Deep Blue, Ball, Maurice Lacroix

    Subject #5

    Likes ..Orient, Omega, Maurice Lacroix, Deep Blue, Ball
    Price ..Omega, Orient, Maurice Lacroix, Deep Blue, Ball

    Subject #6

    Likes ..Omega, Maurice Lacroix, Ball, Deep Blue, Orient
    Price ..Orient, Deep Blue, Omega, Maurice Lacroix, Ball

    Subject #7

    Likes ..Omega, Ball, Orient, Deep Blue, Maurice Lacroix
    Price ..Omega, Maurice Lacroix, Orient, Deep Blue, Ball

    Some results were pretty surprising. Once I averaged out the scores, the final rankings were as follows...

    FINAL RESULTS

    Likes ..Omega(1.9), Orient(2.6), (tie)Maurice Lacroix(3.3), Ball(3.3), Deep Blue(3.6)
    Price ..Omega(1.9), Orient(2.1), Deep Blue(3.1), Maurice Lacroix(3.9), Ball (4)

    The confirmation for me came in where people thought Orient and Deep Blue ranked as far a price... 2 and 3 respectively. I thought it was interesting. Anyway, I had too much time on my hand. Thank you for indulging me!

    For the sake of clarification, is the price increasing left to right or right to left? Higher number is a higher price, or lower?

    Interesting...

    I admire your commitment and patience.

    I've done something similar, but with my tobacco pipes. The results were extremely favourable to Dunhill and Castello and this from non-smokers (I'm a non-smoker myself, now) opinions. Never found a plausible justification.

    Good luck!

    Yep, the data seems difficult to understand.

    So if I read it correctly the Deep Blue was the most liked and the Ball was thought to be the most expensive.

    The Omega was the least liked and thought to be the cheapest……..ouch.

    Or did I get it backwards????

    That is backward. Sorry. Left to right. Lower score is better score.

    Re: A small experiment...

    I think 1 is high and 5 is low.

    It is interesting that people disliked the white faced watches and thought them cheaper (ML and Ball)

    There is actually only one white face - the Ball. There is a glare on the Omega. You know my pictures are bad.
