Fashion label Louis Vuitton has been rated the top luxury brand by a sample of African millionaires.

The survey was conducted by New World Wealth, with the sample comprising wealthy individuals from South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Zambia, Angola and Mozambique. Criteria for rating the brands included exclusivity, quality and reputation. Semi-luxury brands – such Lacoste, Mercedes and Jaguar – were excluded from the study.

In recent years the super-luxury watch market has seen significant growth in Africa, according to New World Wealth, with popular brands including Patek Philippe, Breguet and Ulysse Nardin. Prices for these super-luxury watches start at around US$10,000.

New World Wealth says watches are a status symbol for men. “Watches have become to men what diamonds are to women,” commented one retailer. Other reasons for the popularity of super-luxury watches are their portability and the fact that top-end timepieces hold their value reasonably well.
