How does Bell & Ross compare to Tag and Omega and the likes?

I (thought) I decided on a Tag Carrera day/date but stumbled across a BR 126 Original (stunning watch!)

Now, I am back to the drawing board and also include BR into the short list.

My question, not knowing much about BR, how does BR compare to Tag's and Omegas and the like in terms of:

a) quality
b) future depreciation in case I want to upgrade/swatch watches
c) reputation as a luxury watch maker

Any thoughts are highly welcome.

.... Tag is purely a fashion watch. ... I view Tag as a more expensive Swatch or Swiss army watch. Just my opinion, but an opinion shared by many others. Omega is a classic, Id say a step down from Rolex because there is a bit of "fashion watch" in the brand - possibly because they offer so many quartz models. They have many models that rival Rolex and many that compete with a coach quartz. Go with the Bell & Ross and enjoy it.
With all due respect, you need to brush up on TAG's recent history of the past 7 years and understand the watches it has developed and brought to market. B&R has developed nothing on their own compared to TAG in the movement department.

I suppose if watches from the 60s, 70s and 80s are fashion watches, then that's what TAG is. Carrera, Monaco, F1, Silverstone, etc are all styles that have stood the test of time and continue to sell very well today. Yes, they also cater to a broad market but if you want serious watches, TAG makes those, too. Concept 24 system, Caliper 36, Calibre 360, V4, Mikrograph, Cal S, the new Pendulum are all examples of what TAG has done. I doubt anyone would call these fasion watches.
