With a score of 8.3 out of 10, Breguet was rated first of 27 luxury watch brands for the upper-class US shoppers, said the 2012 Luxury Brand Status Index (LSBI) survey conducted by the Luxury Institute.
The New York-based institute said Breguet achieved the top rank for its product design, customer service and brand reputation—the focal areas where LSBI scores were based. Breguet, part of the watch industry since 1775, was esteemed as a brand “purchased by people I admire and respect.”
Next to Breguet is another Swiss brand, Patek Philippe (8.05), followed by Paris-based Boucheron (7.99). Ranking at a close 7.96, Rolex came fourth but was found to be the best-known luxury watch brand, garnering popularity from 52 percent of the wealthy shoppers who earn a minimum of $200,000 a year with a net worth of $5 million.
