After a successful seven-year stint running Roger Dubuis, Jean-Marc Pontroué was elevated to the top job at Officine Panerai, not just a far larger brand but one of the most significant in the landscape for its influence and popularity.

"If you’re not doing four hours of sports every day, you don’t deserve a Submersible."

That was a totally ridiculous statement.

It's marketing by challenge/insult. The former CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch did something similar in an interview some years ago. He basically said, "if you're too smart (i.e. NERD!), fat, or unattractive, our clothing really isn't for you."

Statements like that, while ridiculous and seemingly self-defeating on their face, may end up encouraging people to actually buy the product. "You think I'm ugly/fat/sedentary?! I'll show you - take my money!!"

So you basically need to be an athlete or a retired old man who bowls 4 hours a day? Ain't nobody got time for 4 hours of sports daily.
