I hear that there have been price increases, as Longines moves up to fill the spot of Omega (as they move up) - a move by the Swatch group. Their older models pre-1960's hold more respect.Is it the case that Longines are moving upwards? I was under the impression that their older models held more respect.
I'd debate that by saying Patek, VC, AP, Lange, GO, JLC, and brands of a similar ilk have no desire to nip at anything associated with Rolex. ;-)
Zenith perhaps? They added the more "affordable" Captain collection last year... just as importantly, which are the ones moving down-market?
