    What watch brand(s) are you tired of seeing or hearing about?

    I speak for a lot of people when say that there are some brands that are just too overpopulated and get over hyped. For me that brand(s) would be the the Rolex and Tag, but don't get me wrong they're two great iconic brands, but sometimes I feel like it gets tiring hearing about them over and over. So what brand(s) are you guys kind of getting tired of?

    Nothing really. I'm a WIS and I love hearing about them over and over and over. Otherwise I won't even bother to be here.

    Nomos. I can't get their insipid jingle out of my head and it's driving me nuts.

    While working in a watch store, I didn't get tired of any brand that I was selling on a roll, but Bell & Ross is getting
    a bit old.

    The brands I'm most sick of are the ones that basically build crap based out of Hong Kong with eta refurb movements, slap a "Made in Swiss" tag on it and try to sell it for $1500 when basically they're replica watches with a sterile dial and a few small changes. There are so many of these makers out there, blows my mind the prices people throw at these watches.

    As we've discussed in, like, three threads in as many days - on WUS, I get tired of brands that enthusiasts relentlessly promote as the answer to everything. In the real world, I can't think of any brands that I'm tired of. I like watches, I like it when people wear them. I guess a certain amount of cheesy promotion comes with the territory.

    I get tired of Paul Pluta putting down Grand Seikos. He can't seem to believe that a non-Swiss made watch could actually be that good!
    Omega Speedmaster Professional.
    Rolex Submariner Dateless 114060.
    Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Date Black Dial.

    Panerai Luminor 112.
    Grand Seiko SBGX061.
    Seiko Beater.

    Invicta. Those aren't watches, they're big, tasteless, oversized toys; they're even sold in big yellow carrying cases, like foot lockers for your GI Joe. And until they reveal where their "Swiss Made" watches are actually produced, they deserve to be ignored like gangbusters.

    It's funny because he even puts down A. Lange & Sohne just because it's a German brand
