Yeppers, they're great. But their pricing is really getting out of hand. The Swatch Group is notorious for their annual price increases (2-3x per year in Europe, 6-10% each time), and that is already bad. Now, the new Conquest costs more than the retail for the basic Spirit, which Spirit I bought at a discount. The price of the Majetek is batshit crazy. Yeah, it's kind of nice, but not 4K euro kind of nice. I mean, it's fucking DOUBLE the price of the Spirit. What the fuck for, the corny "1935" plaque?
I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.

Haven't you noticed? All the mainstream Swiss prices are stupid now. That's a big part of the reason I'm not buying any more. I wonder how many other people have also decided they don't need that watch.
