    What was the watch Terrance gave Ari on entourage? The episode where Allen what's his face dies and Ari gets offered the head of the studio gig?

    Any list that doesn't include Jaeger LeCoultre is highly flawed. Their Gyrotourbillon is the most beautiful and intricate movement I've ever seen.

    Wow, I clicked the link, and it places Rolex above Jaeger. This list was compiled by a bunch of morons.

    Stringer,
    Its an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, a nice watch and a discrete one among those who don't know watches (unless of course it's gold like the one on the show) Ari also wears a stainless version

  • monkeysama's picture

    My watch costs nothing, is invisible, and helps me meet people and make friends at parties!

    "Hey buddy, got the time?"

  • Pennypacker's picture

    All rankings of watches are ridiculous, its like ranking fashion brands. There is an overall consensus that PP/AP/VC is the three top brands with PP being in its own league.

    To everythingsucks,

    Hey Buddy, why do u think Jaege shoud be above Rolex?

    I guess different people have different perspectives, mostly on emotional side, but what matters most is the ranking methodology, isn't it?

    according to those who published the rankings at watchesranking.com, " The rankings are compiled based on five key indicators of quality: Price, Art, Reliability, Investment value and Search engine citation. Scores for each indicator are weighted as shown to arrive at a final overall score.

    I guess Rolex have much higher score than Jaeger-LeCoultre in terms of public recognition among search engines and watch magazines. Besides, Rolex is widely known for its investment value. Rolex does excel in these two indicators, which definitely boosts Rolex's ranking among Luxury watch rankings.

    which watch do you wear?

    Here comes Rolex!
    Rolex ranks #2 in Luxury watch category with an overall score of 87.1 and an average price of $13,172

  • thewatchguy's picture

    I'm a big fan of Rolex, wearing Submariner for 10 years, just love it!
    my wife has a Cartier tank. kind of funning to rank these brands. which one is better? Cartier or Rolex, I can hardly tell...

  • manbearpig's picture

    Zenith chronomaster t open. Beautiful watch. It was a gift from my grandparents. (I think it costs around 7K)

    As for your actual question of which watch I wear, that would be Tissot. I wear the Zenith on very special occasions only. (I've only worn it once since I got it 2 years ago.

  • GOLDMAN911's picture

    PATEK is much better than blancpain. blancpain is just a shitty brand who maks expensive watches. my mother had one and it sucked

  • Imakeitrain's picture

    Can't argue with Patek at 1 but AP is number 2 without question. You also have to include JLC and Rolex in the mix as well.

  • Kanon's picture

    Disagree with Blancpain as #2. Feel like A. Lange & Sohne should be at 2 or 3, or at the very least top 5 - not 6.

  • Unforseen's picture

    Yep, A. Lange & sonhe should be top 3 if we re basing our rankings on craftmanship, prestige, and reliability
