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.

Bell & Ross is a relative new comer to watch making. The company started originally as the importer and distributor of Sinn watches to the U.S. market under their brand. They have focused on the military and tool watch market and did not start producing their own watches until a little over a decade ago. They have never produced their own movement.

Compared to TAG and in particular the pre-TAG Heuer, and Omega, they have no history or particular horological significance to speak of.

They make nice products, but it will take some time for them to have a reputation close to TAG Heuer and Omega.
