Hey everyone,
About 10-15 years ago it seemed to me that Breitling was much more popular than it is now. Growing up I always viewed Rolex followed by Breitling as the most popular and nicest watches. (Within reason and in the mainstream. Excluding Patek, AP, RM, etc) It seemed every jewelry store carried Breitling and displayed it at the front of the store.
Was this just perception or has Breitling decreased in popularity over the years?

Hi @Jimstark, and welcome to the forum. I guess the answer is: it depends where you have been hanging out? Breitling is still a very popular brand, especially amongst a certain range of collectors. This forum is a little quiet these days, but if you join some of the Facebook groups and look through Instagram, you'll see very active support for Breitling. The other issue could be that the new management is trying to move the brand somewhat more up-market, and that might mean some of the older sales channels where you previous saw Breitling have dried up a little, in favour of new Breitling boutiques.
