Before we get into these details, my ex fiancees father was a very well know watch smith and he always stated that Pateks and APs were in a whole different class than Rolex. Let me know if you want more details.
How does a substantially higher price point automatically contribute to a higher class product?
I'm not here to argue which watch is better, I was simply interested in the OPs reasoning for his statement.
Your smith's opinion is noted.
