Well said. I guess the sameness Business model could be said for electric toothbrushes, Gillette razor handles, coffee machines, printers etc to entice you into the consumables later. Though possibly at a break even rather than loss
The watch you mentioned is discounted by 40% by some retailers. (Hardly "they don't lose value"). This is typical of many people who post on here and you've fallen into the same trap too. You seem to be under the impression that Seiko aren't making the same percentage of profit as anyone else and that they're doing you a favour by selling it cheaply. And you've found this amazing deal. I've seen people think the same with, say, Primark clothing, yet that company makes massive profits, but everyone falls into the trap that the company isn't making much money and is selling that stuff at those prices out of the kindness of their own hearts. And you're still stuck on this idea of purely the cost of manufacture, you completely forget other overheads. Those are included in the price you pay. A larger company can reduce overheads, smaller ones can't. If it was that easy to make money everyone would be doing it. The only thing in the world I can think of that is sold at a loss is games consoles, but the money is made afterwards with the sales on games.
Don't know why you're giving quartz such a bad rep. Loads of decent watches use a quartz. Seiko 9F. Citizen eco drive one. Omega space master. Breitling Exospace. To name a few.
This is what's wrong with this forum! Dude/woman posts iPhone deal and opens the debate of what's best, android or Apple. Dude posts BA deal and opens up the debate of what's best, Ryanair or BA. How about dude posts iPhone deal and if you can't find an iPhone cheaper elsewhere then just accept it's a good deal and if you want to buy said deal...crack on!! Might start being a look and not post member like most people on here.
I appreciate where you're coming from, but considering an automatic in house movement can be produced in a watch that costs £70-£100 (Seiko 5) which is far far more complex to build, and a quartz watch which is far cheaper to produce is RRP at £150-£400 (MVMT, DW... etc) you have to question the value. You will rarely see automatic watches discounted above 20%, usually because you're paying for something that holds value for what it actually is, instead of the brand it has on the front.
Happens all the time in here...spam posts from dodgy companies purporting to be real people. SportsDirect deals in particular. You may not be, but there again you very well may be and who wants to be another 1 star reviewer that's effectively been ripped off. Don't take it personally, but having read those reviews I wouldn't touch this lot with someone else's bargepole - yet another cheap pig's ear watch trying to be a silk purse.
not spam, just a new user and a person who likes watches watches. Everyone has to start somewhere sharing deals. but thanks for the kind welcome to the commuity
Strong smell of spam in here.
To be honest never seen that, just read it and it is interesting hahah not the best write up, ive purchased 3, partner and family in total 5 and never had a problem.
The watches aside, trustpilot, Facebook and forums carry plenty of comment relating to the manufacturers customer service. :/ uk.trustpilot.com/review/larssonandjennings.com
Heard about this brand, becoming quite popular for young adults. 40% is a good discount too. Shame that the watch sizes are hit and miss. 38mm watch face is a bit small.
Once glance at trust pilot will tell you to stay well away even at 40% off
They look good and excellent discount, I had not heard of this brand though.
