    Watch Rankings.

    Hi, been more than a year since I last posted. I found something and as I look some seem to be pretty accurate. What's good is that the admin seems to hear out every comments and tries to re evaluate. Have a look at this guys

    I'm not entirely sure on the utility of things like this, particularly in terms of trying to give it objectivity.

    Also, Richard Mille is given special recognition from amongst the most elite of all watchmakers. I suppose they certainly do stand out.....

    In their list richard mille is among the top watchmakers which I also think is true. There are alot of brands that can be confused in their 2-3-4 star category.

    Also I'd like to clear out that in my own opinion, the list is not all accurate. But none of us can really make an accurate list. What I like is how much effort the guy puts to make a list, and everyone commenting, stating their disagreements are well entertained by the maker.

    This is simply a price hierarchy? I was hoping the star rating meant some other sort of rank.

    Re: Watch Rankings.

    I don't know, I think the creator also bases it on horological accomplishments. I was also wondering, based on his criteria, why Jacob & co is just on the 3 stars when I think it should make it on his 4 star. His reason was:

    "

    Yeah, Jacob & Co is a tough one. Astronomia is a one hit wonder for sure but overall, there doesn’t seem to be much substance behind their watches. It’s high-end fashion with precious stones before horology. Kinda similar to Cartier but Cartier does have a strong horological heritage besides the bling.

    Sure they load up some of their watches with diamonds but that’s not the bulk of their pieces (just like Patek has some very expensive watches). If Jacob & Co only sold expensive watches above $10K or above $40K then they would be a 4 star or even a 5 star brand.

    Honestly I’m 50/50 on Jacob & Co. Since you were right about so many other brands take another look at Jacob & Co with a fresh pair of eyes and let me know if you still feel strongly about them being moved up to 4 stars. Would you say they’re more like Cartier or Patek Phlippe?

    Remember price is by far the largest factor in the ranking but not the only one. This is a Watch Ranking site that’s based on a number of criteria and not a price catalog."

    I think he at least knows something. Maybe a fellow member here at WUS?

    I like this bit close to the top of the Ultra Luxury Watches:

    "May not have the best resale value."

    Fortunately I'll probably never know.

    Lol. But he does have a point. I think only PP,AP,VC,Rolex seem to be the only brands capable of selling close to New/MSRP. So yeah.

    Re: Watch Rankings.

    Rankings are very subjective, and we could argue till the cows come home!!

    Looking at this one a few of my favourites fall into the top category so can't be that far off my ranking ;))
