1) I would like to know (at least) the top 5 countries (markets) for VC in terms of volume sold (figures or percentages if available).
2) Although I appreciate the tremendous work that goes into the VC in-house movements (in particular), I feel that the prices of most new VC watches have been going through the ceiling in the last few years. While the concept and design of the QdI hit the spot, don't you think the pricing will be a barrier? Is such pricing part of the marketing plan? (VC is VC because not everyone can afford one).
3) Are there any plans to strengthen VCs marketing/advertising? In Japan, I have noticed more ads in magazines nowadays. However, whereas PP, AP, etc. are often included in feature articles, it is quite rare for VC to be included in such articles and pictorials. Is this a barometer of how unpopular/unknown VC is with the press or targeted readers, or is VC just not into working with as many publications (VC may be too choosy with the publications it works with... many are exposed to Patek or even AP but not VC). Anyway, I would love to see more coverage of VC.
On a more positive note, the VC representatives that I regularly meet at watch fairs are the friendliest and most accomodating people around but they need more help to sell more VC watches! A little more exposure can't hurt.
