In the world of watches reputation is almost everything. A watch brand can make a watch that is of fantastic quality but if they have a bad past then the consumers would probably write them off. For an example seiko has a great reputation for making great affordable reliable watches. But to the high end buyers it's not the same. Even though seiko has the grand seiko line some high end buyers still see them as seikos. Which is in a way bad for seiko because their grand seiko line is great and i believe they can compete with the best from Switzerland when it comes to quality and value. But then on the other hand you have some brands that has had a bad rep from the beginning whereas seiko has a great reputation but just doesn't get much respect from the high end watch buyers. So what brands do you guys think has the worst rep?
