does anyone have knowledge of a bulova dealer in geneva, switzerland?
No, Bulova is a Japanese brand. Wholly owned by Citizen. It is a shell of the former great company it used to be.In an effort, during a recent trip to Geneva, to locate anyone selling Bulova watches , I came up totally empty handed. Go ahead, browse the retail stores there. Not a single Bulova or Accutron in sight. In fact, I could only count about 6 marquis brands and about 8 secondary brands of Swiss watches in the entire city.
The nearest Bulova contact on the ground, claimed to be incommunicado till 11/28, the exact date of my return.
So my question is this. Is Bulova a Swiss brand or not?
I have a different take on that, Bulova is still US headquartered and run by an independent CEO. Offcourse Citizen now owns them but that doesn't make them Japanese as much as Jaguar/Land Rover can't be called Indian brands just because an Indian company owns them or Rolls Royce,Mini are German because BMW owns them. It the time of globalisation and it doesn't really matter who owns these iconic companies. What matters is that they survive because if they don't our vintage collections won't be attractive to the next generation. No one wants to collect anything from a brand that doesn't exist anymore.No, Bulova is a Japanese brand. Wholly owned by Citizen. It is a shell of the former great company it used to be.
