A few days ago, I wrote an article about a new watch made by the Cheap Patek Philippe Replica Watches family. In other words, the reference price of 5960P is around $80,000. A beautiful watch, but why bother with such a expensive watch? For the money, everything is possible, right? Well, some people find themselves waiting for such watches, and others People, we just watch these watches with interest or strong desire. In any case, Patek Philippe is serious about its products in the United States, at least on paper. For Americans, the true message will be the preferred way to evoke our values, tastes and luxury.
In an interview with InSync Watch magazine recently, Patek Philippe’s father and son team revealed the working mentality behind the world’s top watch manufacturer. Philippe Stern and his son Thierry are in charge of a “family” business. This is no joke. Large manufacturers such as Patek Philippe Replica and Audemars Piguet are actually family businesses and are considered insignificant in terms of the number of employees.
“We want to respect people; we don’t want to be snobbers on our watches,” said young Thierry Stern. Thierry is the vice president of Patek Philippe Replica Watches, and one day he will take over from his father Philippe’s place. In the same interview, Phillips mentioned that “(American) people really don’t have the culture of exquisite watches.” At the same time, he also mentioned that the United States accounts for 25% of the market in Patek, the largest market. The difference in this statement is very strange, as if Patek had a disdain for the biggest market in the United States.
One clue to Patek Philippe’s attitude toward the United States may be why they think Americans are buying “good” watches. “Today (in the US), more and more business people are realizing that watches are a symbol of status and status,” explains Old Phillips. I don’t believe this is true. In Phillips’ view, the reason Americans buy watches is wrong. Not to appreciate or enjoy them, but to be merely a symbol of status. European watchmakers completed the design and production of watches with enthusiasm and serious interest. Resentment is inevitable when they realize that someone just buys their work for good looks without appreciating the taste or labor. Think of the emotional artist, who received an invitation from a wealthy buyer to add some paintings to their new house. Buyers may not have real interest in the artist or their art, but he believes that these art will look well over bare walls. The artist agrees because of the money involved, but perhaps not excited about the exchange.
Fake Patek Philippe Watches and others may feel this way for the US “new rich” who invest in status watches. However, this concept still has inherent flaws. Those who buy watches at other prices in other parts of the world are also rich, but they may have more cultural connections with watches or have “old” money. For Americans who want a “good” watch, the message here is: “Go learn to appreciate your own watch and come to us when you can afford a watch.” Patek should be a solemn Humble ways to educate and showcase their watches. Therefore, once they have the ability to buy such a watch, people will buy it based on appreciation rather than price.
The result is that Patek Phillipe is snobbish about their watches, mainly to cater to those who are already rich. Using their “private” meetings and sponsorship of elite events, they are protecting themselves from becoming a manufacturer of watches and art; becoming a luxury supplier of super-rich. Perhaps, when Thierry Stern takes over his father’s position, things will change. Other watch manufacturers have begun to recognize the importance of opening up new markets. In any case, Swiss Patek Philippe Watches still has an amazing collection of watches, and its long-lasting appeal is indisputable. I only know that if I can buy a Patek Philippe watch, I will buy it from a private buyer instead of an authorized dealer, just to show Patek Philippe how Americans enjoy good value for money. Because we know where to find them.
