Thread: Cars and Watches..... Yeah, I know!

  1. #1

    Cars and Watches..... Yeah, I know!

    So it's not the greatest comparison to make, but we see it time and time again. Just for FUN (!) I thought we could have a bash at seeing how well we could link some car and watch brands with some semi-decent likenesses..

    My attempt.

    Toyota - Seiko: Japanese with a long history and a reputation for quality

    Lexus - GS: Luxury sub brands of the above companies. Both offer excellent products which perhaps took a while to be fully understood outside of Japan

    Maybach - ALS: German, at the top of their game and both rejuvenated brands

    Porsche - Rolex (Professional range): The default sporty choice that many aspire to for a very good reason. Enduring designs and everyday usability

    Rolls Royce - Patek: Both are royalty in their own area

    Bentley - Vacheron Constantin: Exquisite, long interesting histories with a little fun and character injected

    Bristol - Bremont: Both ever so English, with a touch of Biggles thrown in

    Audi - Omega: A rich history of achievements, a quality brand with an upmarket image and yet a real spread of prices

    I have a few more up my sleeve, but rather than rattle them all off I'll throw it to the flow first.....
    G-Shock: GW-7900-1ER & GW3000B-1A
    Rolex: Submariner 14060M
    Accurist: 1961 Shockmaster (Gold) & 1965 Shockmaster (Steel)
    Omega: Speedmaster Professional 3570.50.00
    Meistersinger: Perigraph AM1002
    Ben Sherman: S489.OOBS
    Rotary: 1990 Quartz (Gold)
    Steinhart: GMT Ocean One 39mm
    Vostok: Komandirskie 650547

    I have been trying to think of a car maker that can compare with Rado.
    Innovation, striking designs, undervalued among the general public.
    Any ideas..?

    Nobody else want to play?

    Morgan - Robert Loomes: Both have that slight wife of tweed about them (in a very good way)

    GShock - Range Rover: Both are trendy, will take anything you can throw at them but still come with a whole host of features and gadgets

    Panerai - Amphicar: Quirky, distinctive and designed for the water

    Citroen? I was trying to think of a watch with those exact values.

    Way ahead of it's time, and a bit Marmite.

    Possibly true with the old Citroens. TBH I was hoping for something a bit more stylish, lol.
    They're both more than a bit Marmite.

    Fiat?

    TAG might be like merc? It now pretty much encompasses every segment. From F1 to compact tiny two seaters to moving vans? and especially some are good, some are not so good?

    And i think range rover is too high end for gshock.. Price tag way too high. Maybe gshocks more like subaru?
