Bucherer Acquires U.S.-Based Tourneau
We are pleased to inform you that the Bucherer Group has taken over the US watch dealer Tourneau. Tourneau was founded in Eastern Europe in 1900 and has been active in the US since 1924. Today, Tourneau has 28 stores in 10 US states, and is the largest luxury watch retailer in North America. The flagship stores in New York City, Las Vegas and Hawaii are among the must-visit watch stores for haute horlogerie aficionados in the US. As a forward-looking company, Tourneau is also active in the area of e-commerce and sells luxury watches online.
Guido Zumbühl “We will do everything to continue to provide our local and international customers the very best shopping experience both online and in our stores and are delighted that Tourneau’s management will join our team to ensure both continuity and to help us drive the future success of Bucherer within the U.S.”
“Bucherer is a dream partner for Tourneau,” said Ira Melnitsky, chief executive of Tourneau. “A Swiss company with 130 years of history in the industry, Bucherer understands fine watches like few others, making them the ideal partner for Tourneau.”
