in chinese music scene, we've the 4 Heavenly Kings. interestingly in watch market, internationally marks Patek Phillippe, Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet & Jaeger-Le Coultre as the Big 4! especially the first 3 brands, each easily commands a 5-figure sum. all are old brands with Great Complications eg Tourbillon, World Time, Chronograph, Power Reserve, Minute Repeater etc.
one who wears any of the above will usually be known as rich, status symbol, know the stuff etc. a friend told me a rich china chinese man in s'pore wore his newly bought Patek to Suana! next moment he questioned the Patek staff that what kind of expensive watch was this that failed him at the health centre!
i'm glad to own the above, a 5119 Rose Gold Calatrava. hope to have the other 3 brands too.
