Tag watches - yes

$1500 watches - yes

Smart watches - not sure yet

$1500 Tag smart watch - not for me thanks, I'd rather buy a 100 one and have 900 left over for a nice vintage watch, perhaps even a Tag

Have you been reading their marketing pamphlets?


I can pretty much guarantee they are buying such stuff off-the-shelf

I think watchmakers are bandwagon jumping because they're afraid of being the next Kodak.


I don't think they've anything to worry about really, but then the 1st iPhone was a PoS that
