Watch Industry Predictions for 2022

Post by koimaster » January 10th 2022, 8:47pm

Forecasts are notoriously difficult to get right. But that hasn’t stopped us from trying. We asked a mix of people familiar with the luxury watch trade the same question: What is your boldest prediction for the watch industry in 2022?

Their answers, which have been lightly edited for clarity, ranged from the obvious (Rolex prices will rise) to the far-out (see collector Morgan King’s fantastical prediction), but all of our respondents agreed on one point: The high-end watch category is destined for another blockbuster year.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Boscoe the Seer predicts:

Manly men will continue to prefer 63 mm watches, intent on being the center of attention when they saunter into Whattaburger.

Dirk Pitt quits adventuring an finds his true calling - serving Orange Julius with an untrusty Doxa strapped to his wrist.

Pretentious fops at TimeZone sue the U.S. government for copyright infringement and file a cease and desist order - complete with scans.

Invicta continues to be the "most feared brand in the industry" after an outbreak of roid-rage induced "yellow fever" in Florida.

Chinese artisans introduce the CrApple watch which measures the health of the user's stool in both left and right hand versions.

Big fat old guys wearing Invicters will get laid by hot broads.
