History will show that from the start, Stewart was an adept driver. Jackie claims that he owes much of his professional success to his learning disability dyslexia - or at least how he managed to live with it. Stewart is remarkably open about struggling with the problem but in a sense sees his lot in life as a virtue. He is quick to name a list of noteworthy successful people who also have dyslexia and frankness about the topic is unique and refreshing. According to Jackie, dyslexia not only prevented him from finishing school, but also allowed him to hyper-focus on his strengths as a means of compensating for what he might lack elsewhere. For Jackie, his struggles with dyslexia prompted him to intently focus on certain attention-requiring tasks that require not only an extreme attention to detail, but also rapid decision making - such as shooting moving targets, or competitively driving a dangerously fast automobile.
Outside of a few exceptions from brands such as Montblanc and Cartier, men and women whose budgets are ,000 will not find too many new watches that we really recommend taking a serious look at. This, of course, is the most difficult market segment to get right, and brands are loathe in uncertain economies to dedicate massive production and marketing costs to enticing more “mainstream” consumers with fresh watches to get excited about. Instead, they rely on existing products to continue selling which focusing on the richest demographic who has increasing amounts of disposable income and is vastly less price sensitive. What does this mean? Well, the difference in price between ,000 and ,500 can certainly influence a lot of sales, whereas the difference between a 0,000 and 0,000 price makes less of a difference to consumers at that level. We, thus, see SIHH brands focusing as much on the ultra-elite consumer as possible. If you like diamonds, precious metals, and highly complicated timepieces then SIHH certainly has something for you.
