I didn’t know that they have been selective about who they talk to. It does elevate them in my mind that they would turn down coverage from Dinkee. That bullhorn works well to gin up interest and speculators. It’s refreshing that an independent maker like them waves it away. I mean look at FP Journe
but really wished they had taken the leap with a green dial. Based on their recent history, I would expect a few more versions of this rattrapante released over the next few years as MB rides this wave. Don’t you think?
It’s lost to history now. Longines and Tissot are a shell of their former greatness. Omega has gotten most of Swatch’s investments as their flagship accessible luxury brand for the past 30 years and still they chase Rolex’s tail. Which tells you something about how far of a lead Rolex has enjoyed.
