Vulcain Company Under New Ownership

Vulcain Company Under New Ownership

Postby koimaster » June 27th 2017, 8:35am

Swiss watch brand Vulcain announced today that they have been acquired by new corporate owners. Little is yet known about the unnamed group except that it is from Luxembourg and already involved in luxury watches. By no means the first time for the brand to change hands since its origin in 1858, the message is that we should expect Vulcain to be reenergized and "reawakened" with new financial support and corporate direction.

Vulcain is one of the less common Swiss brands that interests me, every since I just missed out on a used one on Craigslist. For choice of Swiss I'm mostly an Omega fan and I like some affordable brands like Tissot or Victorinox. But some day I would like to add a Vulcain or maybe Eterna to my collection.

At least it wasn't picked up by Lalo, Ozo From Beetlejuice Ben-Schmuel, or Fischer.

very iconic, pricy watch. I would pick a used Memovox over these.
