    I find it amazing that they can produce cheap tourbillons that are surprising good quality, yet the Swiss manufacturers claim they canít be on watches under £10k.

    I'm sure there's a Veblen element at work with Swiss watches, too.

    Completely agree on the Veblen element - look at Rolex pricing versus inflation, and Omega attempting to catch them up with Seamaster pricing to increase desirability.
