I thought Sinn should be pronounced as "Zinn" because in German, the letter S is read with the Z sound?  ::) ::) ::)

it all depends on the country you are from. the french pronounce JLC as "zhezher lecool"... the americans as "yaeger lecoultra"

Post by: BBouvier on May 02, 2013, 08:08:50 PM
<"It is pronounced "Zinn" as far as I know."


"SINN"?

I am German...I also speak English, French, Latin, and a little Spanish, Italian and Danish as well ...
The "S" there is very "soft" and pronounced  like "dogs".
And the "i" llike "him".

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

And "IWC" goes like this:
I = ea(r)
W = w(onton) + e(h??)
C = Z(urich) + e(h??)

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

OMEGA:
=>
O = O(xford)
M = m(uch)
E = e(h??)
G = g(et)
A = a(rmy)

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

PANERAI
=>
P = p (ast)
A = a (rmy)
N = n (one)
E = e (h??)
R = this r-sound does not exist in English...a little bit like "harp" but done with the tip
of the tongue in the upper front part of the palate with a little ratteling => rrrr ... a sort of short snarl
A = a (rmy)
I = ea (ger)

Regards,
BB
Title: Re: How to pronounce your favorite watch brand name ;)
Post by: BBouvier on May 02, 2013, 08:37:31 PM
<"Brey Ling">

Not quite.

B = bright
R = see above --- does not exist .... "rrrrr"
(especially nice to try for Chinese?)
E I = either
T = t
LING = ling

BREITLING is very close to "Brightling"

Regards,
BB

Post by: windstruckk on January 05, 2014, 11:21:40 PM
Shouldn't the pronunciation of a brand name be standardize globally?

Most of us read Panerai as Pa(pa) Ne(rvous) Rai (bahasa baku).
Tag Heuer as Tag Hew Er.

watches mostly not make in england
most of the brands are not from england as well
so its difficult for us to pronounce since most malaysian speak english as their second language

We all mispronounce words at some point in our lives. And we all tend to have a good laugh when we hear those in power say a word incorrectly. But some words are mispronounced more regularly than others, and it makes sense to be aware of them if you want to appear professional. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Here is the updated link on How to pronounce the names of these luxury watch brands http://www.watchtime.com/reference-center/watch-brand-pronunciation-guide/2/

Hope it will helps us the watch lovers ;)

Title: Re: How to pronounce your favorite watch brand name ;)
Post by: diabloxster on December 10, 2018, 12:17:03 PM
Really interesting! How I see it is that you follow the pronunciation of the home country of the brand. If it's French, pronounce it French, like Hermes is "air -mess" as the French dont pronounce the H, Hublot is "ue -blu" with no H. If it's italina pronounce it like the italian and so on. So Nasi Lemak should not be anything else, right? LOL
Title: Re: How to pronounce your favorite watch brand name ;)
Post by: kennethkoo on December 10, 2018, 03:52:35 PM
Good info. But I guess it's important to be able to pronounce the brand of the watch you have on your wrist. LOL
Title: Re: How to pronounce your favorite watch brand name ;)
Post by: diabloxster on December 10, 2018, 04:06:39 PM
Yes, of course, like I said country of origin is the key.
