And by Better watches, I mean finishing/ material parts quality/Movement because Design and Aesthetics is very perspective
With all respect to Tudor and Tudor owner's. I feel a little bit uncomfortable and will tell you the story below and you guy can say if I totally wrong or you guy think the same:
In a big watches group on Facebook (Which I do not want to name here), 1 member ask If he should buy Omega Moon Watch or The Tudor BlackBay or may save up for the Submariner and Explorer.
And I answer him that he should buy the Moon Watch, Since if he buy the Tudor, he will always thinking about upgrade it to the Submariner.Meanwhile, Omega has it own history and aesthetic !
And to me the Blackbay in Blue/Black look quite Similar to the Sub with obviously, lower finishing and branding level.
Then another member came in and Said how his Tudor Black Bay is more beautiful than the Sub and that The Rolex Branding worked its way into my brain. Meaning that's I like the Sub more just because Rolex is more marketing and more well know brand not because of the watch it self !
I have to Argue and Admit that:And more important, we have to remember that : TUDOR and ROLEX come from the SAME COMPANY,Rolex is the Best Knowing Watches brand in the World. The sub has it own Position in horology history (Although i do not like the Submariner that much).
And because They are brothers it is the Core of their Business stratègy, Tudor - the little brother, will never ever make the watch better in Finishing, movement, quality (Design is personal point of view, btw) than Rolex with the Smaller/Same príce tag in same category. They will have the whole Director Board and the whole well-paid Marketing team to make sure it will happen that way where TUDOR always have to sit Below Rolex !
Otherwise, will affect - infringe the Big brother (Rolex) Segmenationt, and therefore Tudor should have to stay in the position Rolex place it. The place as "Budget Rolex", just like how JLC place Montblanc now. It is Brand Positioning Strategy ! And it is for the good of BOTH Rolex and Tudor !
I still Respect tudor and love the Blackbay Bronze, but to me thinking that Tudor watches is better-made than Rolex is nonsense.
