    Currently in Switzerland, head about to explode!

    I am in Switzerland right now. I was in Geneve yesterday, visited the Pstek Phillipe museum , so cool. There are watches everywhere! I was in the Bucherer store twice, once in Geneve, and one in Luzern. I tried on a bunch of awesome watches, almost maxed out credit card twice, didnt causevwife is with me, and talked me out of it, probably a good thing. Watches are much more expensive here than in the US, especially because the Swiss Franc vs. The US dollar issue, and i havent heard ofvany discounts. I wouls have posted photos, but no one lets you take any, bummer. Just thought i'd dhare a quick report.

    i believe you do not need to pay sales taxes, if you are a tourist.

    You can get 8% off the price.

    Enjoy, I was in Zurich just last week and got home to the states a few days ago. What a wonderful city and country. Wasn't able to leave Zurich but definitely will upon my next trip which looks to be in one year. Reinsurance is a good industry to be in to see likes of Switzerland, UK, etc!

    I spent 5 hours up and down Bahnoffstrasse (sp?) looking at hundreds of watches. Simply amazing. Tried on numerous watches, really enjoyed myself. I ended up buying the wife earrings from Bucherer, but no watch for myself. It ain't cheap! Nothing in Switzerland is, for that matter. $25 grey goose sodas, $7 just to get into a cab, etc. But what a country.
