BEST PRACTICESINTRODUCTIONGetting to know luxury"Why do I need to know how the watch market is doing? I'm in the business of luxury"- Partick Heiniger, CEO, RolexLuxury brands have often been associated with the core competences of creativity, exclusivity, craftsmanship, precision, high quality, innovation and premium pricing. These product attributes give the consumers the satisfaction of not only owning expensive items but the extra-added psychological benefits like esteem, prestige and a sense of a high status that reminds them and others that they belong to an exclusive group of only a select few, who can afford these pricey items.The luxury sector targets its products and services at consumers on the top-end of the wealth spectrum.
