The term “chain of contempt” has been around for many years. And there are chains of contempt in every field, not only for cars, bags, and famous watches, but also for mobile phones, TV dramas, and games, which surprised me.
On the Internet, famous watches also have a “chain of contempt.”
Recently, I saw a “luxury contempt chain” on the Internet, which roughly means:
Hermes “Chanel, Dior, LV” GUCCI “Celine, Balenciaga, Fendi, PRADA, Givenchy” Armani, Versace.
The contempt for luxury goods is relatively simple, but I don’t understand the chain of hate for cars. Lexus and BBA, which often appear on the Internet, “despise” each other, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi “despise” each other, and there is even a “chain of contempt” between different models of the same brand. For people like me who are “very big” about cars and the cars are almost enough, seeing these complicated “chains of contempt,” I don’t know what is comparable. Replica swiss watches.
There are more and more complicated chains of contempt between cars.
As a fan of famous watches, I have seen some “chains of contempt” in my favorite eyes. In addition to Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet, and the traditional watchmaking “troika” recognized in famous watches for Rolex, Omega, IWC, Cartier, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai, Blancpain, Glashütte Original, Zenith, Hublot, Breitling, etc., the mainstream famous watch brands in the market, I have also seen some people insist on distinguishing one, two, three, and even who is one or half a grade higher than another, and insists on overwhelming one.

Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, and Audemars Piguet are recognized as the “troika” of traditional watchmaking.
The car involves a lot of performance and configuration; my understanding could be more. Still, I think the “chain of contempt” for famous watches is unnecessary because, among real watch fans, there is no chain of contempt.

- people are playing with all kinds of watches, even the most niche ones.
Although the common ones are Rolex, Omega, and other mainstream brands in the market, niche watches such as Kunlun, Ruibao, Bell & Ross, FPJ, Henry Moser, and antique watches are all played by people. Different people play differently.
A famous watch, whether it meets your preferences or not, even if you don’t like it, someone will like it.

- No matter what watch you wear, you can chat together.
Over the years, I have met online and offline, including some cousins from the same city in Beijing. There are all walks of life, all industries, all age groups, and people wearing all kinds of watches. The oldest cousin I know has retired at 60, and the younger one is a student who just graduated in his early 20s, and they can chat together because of famous watches.

That being the case, why do famous watches still have a “chain of contempt”?
Famous watches at different prices have different positioning, which is fine. Tissot and Longines are in different positions than Rolex and Omega; Rolex and Omega are certainly not in the same position as Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin. But for famous watches with similar positioning (such as Rolex, Omega, IWC, etc.) or overlapping prices (such as Rolex DD and Patek Philippe watches with the same price, referring to the actual cost), it is meaningless to figure out who is higher and who is lower.
Once I saw a comment on the Internet, I was impressed and thought it was funny. One person said, “Even if a certain famous watch costs 40,000 to 50,000 yuan, it is still a first-rate watch; even if a Rolex is worth hundreds of thousands, it is still a second-rate watch.” I find it very funny. This is not a question of discussing famous watches but of finding a “psychological balance” for myself.
In my opinion, the main reasons are:
- Some players have not been in contact with famous watches for a long time, and the watches they have bought are still relatively limited.
When a person is new to famous watches and has some understanding but not much understanding, it is straightforward to “blindly judge who is good and who is not.” For example, it is only based on value preservation or not to judge which watches are good and which are not; for example, only to use movement to consider which eyes are professional and which trends need to be experienced.

When you have played for a long time and bought more watches, you will find that different famous watch brands have their characteristics and focus on other things. For example, Rolex and Omega have good comprehensive capabilities. Still, Cartier’s design is very prominent, Hublot is very explosive, Jaeger-LeCoultre Blancpain is complicated and central, IWC is very majestic, Panerai is rough and tough guy style, Glashütte The originality is that the German style is different from the Swiss watch and so on. Buying other watches is a matter of changing styles and tastes. After playing a lot, for the question “you buy a certain watch, it is better to buy XXX,” you can answer “I like it” or “bought it” in three words.

- Take the famous watch too seriously and pay too much attention.
Famous watches are luxury goods, with tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars widespread, and hundreds of thousands of dollars are not uncommon. I also bought it step by step, so I understand very well that I purchased a watch after spending a lot of money, after various thoughts and entanglements, and I also want to express that my watch and the brand I like are high-end and perfect. Yes, you have to debate with others. Especially the young and energetic ones who care about the eyes of others.
As they age, many players must have started a family or reached a certain age. The focus of attention is basically how to make the life of one’s own family live well and don’t care too much about other people’s eyes to “compete” with others. Famous watches are an “adjustment” to life. Now I buy whatever watch I like, which looks pleasing to the eye. I have bought LV and GUCCI watches. I don’t care about other people’s opinions about famous watches and the basic necessities of life; as long as I like it, it’s OK.
Someone ridiculed that the first car suitable for young people was Rolls-Royce, and the first watch was Patek Philippe.
Although there is a “chain of contempt” for everything now, especially some people ridicule “the first car suitable for young people is Rolls-Royce”; “the first watch suitable for young people is Patek Philippe.” This teases the phenomenon of “despising the chain” and “persuading people to add money to XXX.”
There are still relatively few “despite chains” of famous watches (less than cars) among watch lovers. Although I have also seen people being “noisy and noisy” on the Internet, none of the cousins I have come into contact with has a “chain of contempt.”
