    What's your favorite Watchmaker name?

    The one that is the most fun to pronounce or is a silly little nibbler that rolls off the tongue?

    I like:
    Jaeger LeCoultre (Should hear my french teacher pronounce it!)
    Blancpain (Blonk Pon. hehehe)
    Audemars Piguet (Lots of syllables)
    Stowa

    hmmm....Nomos....Omega...Citizen....Seiko. I imagine some of that is associating the sound with a positive feeling though lol. Vacheron.

    Let me see if there's a company i'm not a fan of that I like the name.

    Oh yeah, Breitling. That's a fun one. Cartier.

    Poljot, Omega, Nomos, Vulcain, Rolex, Vostok. There's a few more but you get the idea. The most obvious commonality between them from what I can see; with the exception of Omega, is that they're all two syllables. They're easy to pronounce, straight to the point, and are pleasing to say IMO (As if that makes sense :p)
