When Will Rolex Price Increases And Tying Disorder End?

Rolex is a super good watch brand. Its brand’s gold content is among the best among all luxury watch brands. Rolex is one of the many Swiss high-end watch brands. However, in the past year or two, with the great success of Rolex’s internal inventory management in the previous years (many people do not know this background, which is very important for Rolex) and the blind pursuit of the economic recovery in the past two years, many Rolex watch prices have been The abnormal market is pushed up to an extremely exaggerated level: a watch priced at about 70,000 yuan, such as the most famous ‘green water ghost’, has been increased to about 100,000, or even up to almost twice the public price. . The key is to buy these watches at a high price, most of them are not understand watches and love watches, they do not know where to come out suddenly, was a ‘bright spot’ of a watch seller ‘reminder’ and ‘financial treasures’ seized ‘Xian Panxia’ —- We can only say that we Chinese are more rich now. Those who know how to love watches, basically hold back after deformed sales, give up the purchase or regret that they did not buy it at a price that was much lower than the public price (all said ‘this is done by these people now …’), For example, from 2014 to 2015, you can be bought as a ‘green water ghost’ who is regarded as a god today. What’s even more powerful is that this wave of Rolex’s ‘fried watch tide’ is not the original ‘normal’ one or two pieces. This wave is awful. Directly from the green water ghost, almost all of the relatively good-looking sports watches of Rolex are fried. There are as many as a dozen models. From the ceramic circle Ditong got all the water ghosts, Ditongna, even yachts and skywalkers. The models are more than 10,000 or more than the public price are on sale. Even some gold sports watches that everyone thought were ‘ugly’ (not to mention them in detail) have been fired. Recently, there has been news of ‘collapse’ … Sadly, this ‘Sale’ is not sold in the brand’s stores, it is all purchased by agents and watch vendors! To put it bluntly, they all smuggled watches, and bought them from domestic stores through various means and purchases, and sold them at increased prices (of course, there are also some regular channels to buy and sell to make money). Rolex, a brand that our watchmaking industry and watch lovers are extremely respected, now has to be purchased through ‘Wechat’, because you can’t buy it from other formal channels … The key is that most of these Wechat merchants are not legitimate Wechat merchants. They are all smuggled and sold. Do you want to buy a Rolex sports model in a brand store? Brand shops are all ’empty’! Now some ruthless Rolex shop assistants like to bully and brag about their shop ‘nothing, empty!’ —- Is there a row of Rolex classics in your store that nobody cares about or want to tie up Watches, aren’t they Rolex watches? Rolex people who really love Rolex and understand the market should be able to realize that this phenomenon is not good. Although their own performance does not have to worry about, Rolex can lay down to make money, but many good customers come to buy watches, they ca n’t buy normally. This watch is harmful to watch buyers and sales staff. Rolex sales clerks in European watch stores have such a feeling: they have offended many Chinese buyers, because the popular watch watch rules do not sell to Chinese people. The result is sadly that the interests are driven by those who sell to local people. Some of them are still returned to the hands of the Chinese people through the layers of purchasing channels …. Sometimes I think that no one is wrong, no one is wrong. Some people may say that this is determined by the market, and existence is reasonable. Yes, the existence of fools has been reasonable since ancient times. Many people think that they are managing finances, but if you want to manage finances, you have to study it yourself. Rewind and look at the ups and downs of the brand price market over the years. You know that this existence is ridiculous and the price will definitely go down. Back to normal. It doesn’t matter whether it’s behind the ‘triad hype’, fund speculation, or speculation by the purchasing group. It only matters if you understand what will happen next. Others say that there is no way, this is caused by insufficient output. Just ask you, do you know how much Rolex produces in a year? Rolex is the world’s most profitable professional watch brand. Its annual output is about 750,000 pieces, and the high year is even close to one million. If a watch is very complicated, it is understandable. For example, Cartier is also a brand with a large production of watches. In some years, it is second only to Rolex. It had a very complicated and high-level advanced watchmaking part. Flywheels are complicated and so on. Even big factories can understand the lack of output. Rolex is now producing models, except for the most complex function of the Skywalker with an annual calendar function (a very good contemporary Rolex), almost all have simple timing functions, dial bezel case, etc. are strictly streamlined process, minute production Out, unless a series is artificially discontinued or under-produced. Note: Man-made, not forced. Everyone carefully pondered these concepts. The Chinese are rich now, and the ‘Hungry Marketing’ that was popular many years ago now uses everything from famous cars and watches to even a T-shirt, which has become a must-have artifact. If a purchasing agent teaches watch buyers that the current price increase is due to insufficient output, it can be justified. If a Rolex person says this, then you really need to learn more about the brand’s spirit and factory strength. A brief summary is as follows: 1. Don’t be a picker. Rolex is high value, but not as high as it is now. The deformity will be beaten back to its original shape. The foam will burst as soon as it blows. It is strong enough and still cannot be bombed. To ask when the bubble burst happened? Isn’t it beginning to show signs? Will it exceed this year? If it can exceed this year, it can only be said that the operation of this wave is too strong and too strong. We Chinese are rich, rich, and rich. 2. At least this wave of operations has probably promoted Omega, Audemars Piguet and Blancpain. Even pushed everyone to play together. These three brands are already very good, with their typical market-selling watches. It turned out that Audemars Piguet and Blancpain were 50 years old. Because the brand and product positioning are higher than Rolex, some people can’t reach it. Now, some of the original hardcore users of Rolex, since they want to increase the price so much, they can’t buy the watch they want. If you ca n’t receive the services you want, why not buy a higher-level brand watch directly? These people are rich and smart, and naturally have better choices. But Rolex did lose good users. Omega is self-evident: Originally buyers would choose between Rolex and Omega watches. Now Rolex ca n’t buy it at all, and they have to increase the price, so buying Omega at the normal price is ‘just good’ … ..3, love watch is the most important. Happy is the best. If you really love it, it doesn’t matter. If you have enough money, spending 100,000 yuan is like buying ice cream, and you will not care about the price of 100,000 in the future. If you just love these watches speculated at high prices, then you are right to buy any one. Just be happy, we’re sending immense envy here. Others, I suggest you wait for your clarity, or consider other tables. You do n’t understand the world of watches, and there are many more watches worthy of your play. 4. Don’t compare the new Rolex watches with the new Rolex antique watches in the auction market. Those who really love Rolex, those classic models that can still be sold in the store, aren’t they all worth seeing? Why don’t you take the time to study this new Rolex watch? Just don’t crowd them and experience self-respecting purchases. With your calm, the arrival of the normal market may be a little faster. Looking at the present, the enthusiasm makes everyone forget about licensed parallel imports and don’t care. Too much to analyze and say on this topic. We don’t have to repeat too much subjective speech. What I want to hear most is your views on this situation.
