Global watch market: Launch of personal accessories by key competitors under the affordable luxury segment

With the limited supply and high demand for luxury watches, the prices continue to surge. However, considering the difference in buying power and customer preferences, the key market competitors are launching products that are considered affordable luxury. For instance, Kering’s GUCCI brand decided to align its offerings with different urban classes in China. Instead of following the one-size-fits-all brick and mortar expansion. GUCCI adopted a tiered approach for its product assortment. In other tier II cities that are characterized by the presence of less affluent customers, less expensive leather goods and personal accessories hold a majority of the shelf space.
