Disneyland was an extension of Disney videos. It mirrored some of the magic of the films, but established a little something new and precious as perfectly. Disneyland had some of the Disney essence and then crafted some thing additive and new.
Apple did the same detail with the Apple iphone in extending the brand of the Mac.
On the other hand, the new Leica enjoy is basically a souvenir. It’s not a superior enjoy. It’s not far more of a Leica than any of a dozen other overpriced watches could be observed to be.
