Why are famous watches more and more expensive? Because Switzerland “does it on purpose.”

The fact is that famous watches are getting farther and farther away from the “broad masses.” A reality among players is that they like a look and feel that the price is a bit high, but if they wait to buy it, they may not be able to buy it in the future. Just like Lange’s previous wave of price increases, the price increase is surprising. But why? Because Switzerland “does it on purpose.”


Since the birth of quartz watches in the 1970s, and the emergence of smartwatches such as Apple watches today, the Swiss have realized that mechanical watches cannot compete with performance, so they have to work hard to become “the top of luxury goods.” In this way, it is clearly distinguished from mass products such as quartz watches and smartwatches.

According to news from the domestic watch industry, since the popularity of smartwatches such as the Apple Watch, the sales of entry-level watches with a public price below 20,000 have been greatly affected. The higher-priced eyes are not affected.

From the sales rankings of famous watches for the past six consecutive years, we can also see that in addition to Rolex, Cartier, and Omega’s perennial monopoly of the top 3, Longines and Tissot have always been in the forefront before. Still, in the sales ranking 2022, Longines used to be No. 4; the fifth place has been occupied by Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, and RICHARD MILLE. Tissot has fallen out of the top 10, and Breitling and Vacheron Constantin have entered the top 10.

From the perspective of specific watches, the Rolex Submariner (Submariner), from the historical aluminum ring and acrylic glass to the current use of ceramic rings and sapphire glass, is constantly updating the movement, adding luxury configurations, and increasing the added value of the watch. In recent years, Tudor has gone from no certification to having observatory certification and then to master observatory certification with 15,000 Gauss antimagnetic, which also constantly increases the value of watches. In addition, Panerai launched buying watches, so you can experience yachting activities and SEAL training to increase the added value of watches.

The public price of famous watches will be higher every year than before. The threshold for entry is also rising, especially for top positioning watches such as Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, and Lange & Söhne. The difficulty of access in recent years has been more incredible than in the past. On the one hand, the public price of entry watches has increased, and on the other hand, entry watches Supplies are also dwindling and focusing on offering more complex styles. Faced with these situations, unless you get out of the pit and stop buying watches, working hard to make money is the only way.
