Maybe this is the new strategy:
1. Buy the firm Breitling
2. Drop the prices of watches -> increase the volume sold and the profit short term while the brand is still a high-end brand.
3. Show off the increased profit, and sell the firm.

I think this is in place already at some ADs. I was in large dealership today and the prices of the models I know - largely the Avenger range have definitely been lowered. Seawolf on bracelet, for example, was £3550 and now £3300; Avenger Blackbird, £3900 from £4195. Good news so far!

Lowering prices by a few hundred bucks is not going to have much of an impact on volume. These are still very spendy watches.

True; if, for example, you compare the Omega diver pro' chrono' with the Avenger, the price gap was too much in my view (£4000 against £4790) but at least this narrows the gap. I'd like to know the thinking behind it, though; a pretty unusual move, I would have thought.

Are you sure the straps was the same as the price list for the same models ?
If there will be a real politic of reduced price it will not be for some hundreds... I don't see the interest to do that

They need to dramatically reduce the pricing on some of the straps. 500 for a croco strap is just insulting.

Yep, same on the Breitling website. Seawolf on bracelet now £3300; same watch was (and still listed as on some sites) £3550.


Avenger Seawolf II on bracelet showing at £3130 on Goldsmiths site. They usually show RRP.
