Over at Worn & Wound, their resident curmudgeon gives you some food for thought in an interesting read.
The article (here) digs into the reason why some of the big name brands will hit you for four figures (or more), whereas some of the smaller brands that are covered (say, Christopher Ward, Benarus, or Magrette) will come in at a fraction of the costs, offering many of the same features and functions.
That’s not to say there’s not a place for higher-end watches (perhaps that grail you’ve had your eye on). I think the point of the article is more to point out you really can get a lot of bang for your buck from online retailers.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
