    Pointing at me? Surely not?

    I shall retire from here if that’s the case. Sorry

    Thing is though.... I'd say Rolex is more like TAG than like Tudor. Shiny ceramic bezels etc.... Tudor is for people who pine for the Rolex of old.

    Not only that, but 'ghastly', 'shiny' and 'completely lacking fauxtina'.

    Yes, well, this forum is largely populated by people who like TAG but love other brands.... which is weird. 'Other Brands' is like the most popular thread here.

    I can't look at those two pics and think anything other than TAG Heuer for the win.

    It's too bad we don't have many (if any) 25 year olds on this forum to get a more valid perspective of what young buyers want these days. From what my ADs tell me, many young buyers just want Rolex because of the status. But since they can't get them, they often turn to Tudor.

    BTW, I wonder what social media platform is most popular for the 20 something crowd to discuss watches? It surely isn't these types of forums.

    I can’t see anything except a fake BLNR. Sorry.

    the Tudor does homage a little subtler and better.

    oh crap they’re on to me!

    On this argument, the TH looks modern and in a sea of vintage inspired watches stands out. However much like the Omega Seamaster I think it will become very dated in each reincarnation.

    Regarding a GMT how many buyers (not accounting Rolex due to the name) buy a GMT without knowing ‘a fair bit’ about watches. GMT is a function you dont buy for looks, & mainly for usage, & I’d expect many will go for movement specs, rather than looks.

    As for not owning a Tag, that’s still being pushed back, expensive loft conversion, Tudor for the other half due before Christmas, and baby number 2 shortly after Christmas. I’m aiming for a new watch when number 2 arrives, it’s just deciding which.

    As for the BB58 for me it’s still the best bang for buck watch out there & suites every situation I need for.

    If that is the case then do we assume that is also for status or because they genuinely like them?

    I think the 20 something crowd just like looking at pictures....

    You can be damned sure that AD will say to them, Tudor is owned by Rolex etc etc...

    I’m sure they are - but social media is king.

    Agreed. First thing that jumped to my mind was the Batman, like @thingziliketoo's.

    At least in Tudor's case they're a part of Rolex, so it's less of a copy, more of a tribute.

    One other point, Tag used to be the entry gateway brand to Swiss Luxury, especially to a younger audience. The gateway which generally they move on & up from.

    I reckon a higher percentage of younger people either want a Rolex, & bypass Tag now days. Maybe the fact they cannot get Rolex they go to Tudor (unsure if this could be AD tactics or not) but also prices between Tag & Tudor aren’t too dissimilar & the Rolex big brother may help.

    Saying that let’s be honest they all want Apple & even the Tag Connected probably isn’t going to sway them.

    I will say that I give TAG credit with this latest GMT for trying to do their own thing. It's just that they've got tough competition and the look isn't my cup of tea.
