    IIRC, Heuer manufactures their own movements. In fact there are certain watch mechnical parts that hold Heuer patents.

    Watches are like cars... They both have the same basic function. No one buys cars for investment, but mostly for buyer's pleasure. Same with watches. That's why there are stocks and bonds and other investment instruments. I love watches also, and for me I buy what gives me the greatest pleasure of owning, and not what other people might think or what the price is.

    Buy what you like, and don't regret it. JMTC

    Di talaga reasonable ang Iphone 5 at 45k, coz after a year obsolete na siya, hehe. Yung Carrera naman can even become an heirloom after decades of use.

    I'd even buy a watch that costs as much as a brand new car, like a Vios, since a Vios would likely be sold after 4-5years to upgrade, but the watch can stay with me for decades and even generations by passing it down to my children and then their children's children.

    Kaya mahal ang rolex, because of this factor. But I for one would not go for a rolex. I prefer watches that most people don't recognize. Watches that look top class, feel top class, but is not recognizable to every Tom, Dick or Harry. My grail watch now is a JLC. For everyday ruggedness, I wear a Ball, which IMO is a good alternative to Tag Heuer.

    oh okay sir, when the sales lady was explaining to me when I was looking for Carrera watches, she pointed me to that particular watch and sabi sa akin eh, that watch is special kasi ung movement gawa mismo ng TAG comapred sa other Carrera watches na iba ung gumawa ng movement.

    i agree with this. watches can be owned for decades and be passed on to your son or grandson. this is one advantage of expensive and well known jewelries that can't be done to cars and electronics(cellphone and laptop).
