If you remove the makers name ;i.e. "Oris". Then do the same to " Glycine", on the combat classic: would you really spent $650 more for a Swiss watch with similar specs? Notwithstanding I personally, and I would think others too may prefer the more understated look of the "Glycine". But I guess marketing has almost brainwashed most of us into "Brand" buying. It used to be that the "Brand" was the best identifier to state the quality of the product; but I personally think that is a guideline for pre-internet and globalisation; and some companies are just stretching out there increased profit margins over the cost per product. Now I am getting worried; starting to sound a bit semi-communist!!
