    Question Regarding Campanola Pricing Strategy

    Hi,

    I know we are not suppose to discuss pricing on this forum so please read the entire post. The intent is not to discuss specific prices for Campanola watches and I will not share any numbers or AD information.

    I went to an AD and received a 35% discount on a Campanola perpetual calendar watch. After I purchased the watch I went online to investigate Campanola and found out that Citizen is discontinuing Campanolas in the US. People online were reporting 40 to 50% price reductions at various ADs around the country. I called another AD in the area and discovered they were now offering a 40% discount.

    Here is my question. In the auto industry, companies will give dealers additional money to move cars when the new models come out. Do you think Citizen provided monetary incentives to dealers to move the Campanolas? Why are alot of US dealers offering deep discounts just because Campanolas will no longer be sold in the US? It just seems strange that "all the ADs" are offering major discounts at the same time. Thoughts?

    Maybe they're not selling as well as they might.
    Maybe they're just cutting their losses and moving on.
    I myself would like a Campo, but not at that price.
    Too many other choices: like, flying to Venice for lunch, some hand made shoes, etc.
