According to (Marza’s,2019) Chinese buyer power is low because it amounted for 27% of luxury purchases, and it is expected to grow to 50% by 2025 with price, style and quality, which Wessex Watches prides itself on, being the main drivers. (Jing Daily,2019) States that Chinese millennials are more informed and knowledgeable about the value of luxury watches because of social media and their income levels, which is expected to continue rising, makes them a promising demographic. The rivalry is high for Wessex Watches, which is mainly from resale websites such as Watchfinder and Chronoexpert that provide second-hand luxury watches at cheaper rates (Marza,2019). The most significant threat of substitute to Wessex Watches is high because mobile devices provide time (Jing Daily,2019). However, purchasing trends are still healthy as (Statista,2019) reports that luxury watch sales revenue for this year so far is £8,323m, and the market size is approximately £2.12bn. Overall the industry is highly competitive with the Swatch Group dominating 32% of the luxury goods market, followed by Rolex with 19.2% and others at 8% (Statista,2019).
