    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    Friends don't let friends buy G-Schlocks.

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    Hopefully this doesn't cause conflicts of interest with brands... but also hopeful they'll expand the market.
    Choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life because that field isn't hiring.

    Bucherer is such a niche watch brand that I don't see conflict of interest, certainly not in the pre owned arena and very little as to new.

    They buy a footprint in the US which is huge market and then also a launch pad of boutiques for Carl F Bucherer watches which from what I believe doesnt have a huge presence in the old US of A.

    The question is will they still remain Tourneau in all locations or will some be rebranded as Bucherer. Especially in prime locations like NY, LA, San Fran etc

    Well, Bucherer as a watch brand might be a niche product, but Bucherer becomes the second largest watch retailer in the world.

    Bucherer is one of the biggest luxury watch/jewelry retailers in Europe, it's just that they have a watch brand on the side :) Wempe is doing this as well.
