With the exception of a few countries, the European economy is struggling. But in any case, the unprecedented growth of the Swiss watch is mainly because the emerging economies are very interested in this. Will the ongoing economic struggle affect European interest in Swiss watches? While we suspect that the luxury market for European replica Audemars Piguet watches is mature and more or less settled, you will never know which watch brands suddenly become more interesting than others.
In the struggling Europe (mainly Spain, Greece and Italy), the top ten watch brands accounted for about 60.3% of all watch inquiries for local watch fans. The top 10 list is not surprising, as Europeans tend to be a bit conservative in terms of watch brands. Brands that have a lot of heritage or have been around for more than a decade are there. However, we noticed a slight decline in the interest of these brands in the top 10. This may mean increasing interest in lesser-known brands such as F.P. Journe (up 17% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012), Urwerk (10% increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2012) or Eberhard & Co (up 4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012).
However, as the interest of the top ten watch brands has decreased, the demand for lesser-known or self-owned brands has grown equally slowly. For many Europeans, the days of using watches as a status symbol have ended, so they may now focus on world watches that have greater intrinsic value to collectors or connoisseurs. European news reports have recently provided more coverage for these independent and well-known brands. However, in the end, the share of these orologi cartier replica smaller brands is still far more than the top 10.
So let's take a look at what is going on in the European countries where the economy is still stagnant. We found Audemars Piguet to grow slightly in the troubled top ten watch brands in Europe (2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012). Chrono24 visitors from Europe share a 3.6% share of the brand. The top ten still are Rolex watches. Since the fourth quarter of 2012, Rolex watches have continued to grow by 5% during these Great Depression. replica Rolex occupied a 21% high in the watch query. Let's zoom in on Rolex and replica Audemars Piguet, both of which have received the attention of Europeans.
Rolex's most iconic model, Submariner, ranked first with 18.9%. Although Daytona lost a bit of hype (and therefore popularity), it still lags behind Submariner, accounting for 17.3% of all Rolex inquiries in Europe. The day when Rolex Daytona waited for two years to wait for the list was over, but it was still the watch that many people wanted. One of the reasons why Rolex is still performing well replica horloges and being able to increase its share of watch consumers may be in terms of resale value. At these times, consumers may be particularly attracted to liquid assets. Rolex is still such an asset, because high demand (new and second-hand) on the market makes it possible to get most of the cash when selling replica watches in tough times. Those who want to buy beautiful watches but want to make sure they don't hurt them to invest in Rolex.
