Abstract

Luxury watches often invoke a lot of debate amongst its aficionados. After the great lengths to which people go to, to collect, study, appraise and critique these mobile mechanical clocks, it is no surprise that they feel very strongly about their picks. Decisions made by prestigious bodies, such as the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie, are hence quite delicate. People's money, ego, and pride are at stake. So picking the winner that will keep the majority satisfied is crucial, yet quite difficult to do. Drawing comparisons to political election outcomes, SMU Economics professor Massimiliano Landi explores a new voting system to address such concerns.
