    You are not the first asking. Why not just doing a search first, flicking through the threads already available and asking what might be not answered yet ?

    I think it would be very difficult for someone to explain how to start a business on a internet forum.

    You should have started out by saying, I want to start a watch company and I want to go broke.

    Re: Starting a Watch Company

    You might as well go to auto forum and ask about how to go about starting a new car manufacture, or guitar forum, or knife forum or shoe forum. Damn, one can go to foodies forum and ask about starting a new restaurant business.

    I think in all instances answer would be the same - work in the industry and get some understanding of it - then you'll have some sense of what's required.
    I mean - what does it mean a "watch company"? Are you looking to design and manufacture (ex: Rolex), case existing movements (ex: Invicta), distribute and brand only (ex: many small brands that get premade watches from Asia and stamp a name on them),?
    If you know nothing about the market, the demand for different watches, pricing, product supply, etc - nobody here will be able to help.

    On an unrelated note - I'd like to become a successful businessman millionaire - can anyone provide me with a plan?

    Wait, you want to start a watch company, but know nothing about watches. I don't see how this can't be successful..........

    So you capitalize 4 of the 5 words in your first sentence but not your own name?
