Are You Pronouncing Your Favorite Watch Brand Names Correctly? Here Are A Few That You May Be Getting Wrong And How To Say Them Correctly (Video)
The lion’s share of high-end watch brands come from French- and German-speaking regions, so their correct pronunciations are not always obvious or easy for speakers of other languages.
In this highly entertaining video by our friends at The Watches TV, Marc-André Deschoux takes to the streets of Geneva to get some . . . um . . . fun pronunciations to demonstrate how not to say the names before moving on to the correct pronunciations, which Deschoux expertly rolls off his loquacious tongue.
I hope you enjoy this amusing 14 minutes of watch fun as much as I did.

When I’m bored I watch Watchfinder videos on youtube with sound off and auto-generated subtitles on, and try and figure out who Psycho and Odum RPK are.
Ha ha ha, never thought of that! Odum RPK….rofl.
Just gave it a shot, and ‘reggae double tobey on’ had me chuckling. It was interesting learning about the link between the ‘blanc pants’ Fifty Fathoms and ‘captain robber malou ba and left-handed cloud reefout of the French Navy’, though.
Glad we could make you chuckle!
For the years I’ve been writing for Q&P I have so often been embarrassed that I hadn’t a clue how to properly pronounce some these manufacturer’s names. So thank you, Elizabeth for this most useful piece.
