The Apple Watch was supposed to be a big threat to established Swiss watchmking brands like TAG Heuer, whose sporty timepieces often serve as entry level luxury choices for people buying their first "real" watch.
You can pick up a simple TAG Formula 1 watch, in stainless steel, quartz-powered, for less than $1,000.
A comparable Apple Watch, once you add the $450 stainless-steel bracelet, comes in around $1,000. But of course you can spend a lot less. And the Apple Watch does a whole lot more than tell the time, which is about all the TAG F1 does.
When you move up to Omegas and Rolexes, with automatic movements and much more status appeal, you're talking $4-8,000. Properly cared for, the Tag will last pretty much forever. So will the Omegas and the Rolexes. The Apple Watch, pointedly, probably won't.
