No wristwatch should make you feel dirty.

Definitely getting academic, we all have different places to draw the line. Design is all derivative, but for me I find the design/engineering the most interesting aspect of the watch hobby. For most "products" I value original design over copies at a discount. I might take a different line on things like pharmaceuticals... thankfully Pfizer never had a patent on penicillin and it is cheap and easy for everyone to replicate.... I don't think watches play the same role in contributing to the greater good.Ryeguy wrote: ↑Tue Feb 08, 2022 8:58 amWhat I find interesting from an academic perspective is whether this type of position (not you specifically, but generally speaking) is consistent across all commercial products?
For example, how many Glock, Browning, or AR-15 design copies are there out there? Car manufacturers crib design elements all the time, as do consumer electronics companies. The list goes on and on.
Seestern, Maranez, "Proxima", etc, take the "copy the design and change the name" to an extreme, but is there a position where a little design copy is OK, but only up to a limit? "Just the tip" as it where?

Personally I can't see that at all but seeing as Kia's design team previously designed for the likes of BMW, Volkswagen, Audi, Cadillac etc, it wouldn't be surprising if Kia's bear a resemblance to other makes, especially Hyundai as they are the same company and use many of the same parts and body shells
I hear you, but all they do is rip off last year's design - they are not coming up with new ones.snootydog wrote: ↑Tue Jun 21, 2022 5:58 amPersonally I can't see that at all but seeing as Kia's design team previously designed for the likes of BMW, Volkswagen, Audi, Cadillac etc, it wouldn't be surprising if Kia's bear a resemblance to other makes, especially Hyundai as they are the same company and use many of the same parts and body shells
I have to say previous posts and threads here in years gone by have made me feel dirtier. Looks good.
