I thought Pierce was too...very old brand, but thier website is vauge about where they made now
Nothing wrong with re-launching the name as long as they are Swiss made, good quality etc... are you saying these are Chinese made with a Swiss contact address to give credence....like MWC etc...?Pierce was re-established. No traditional roots or whatever. They just took over the name.
Yeah same company Pierce1883, funny they say Swiss movements, assembled and adjusted in Germany....mmm....one would think final assembly/adjustment would have been just as economical in Switzerland , plenty of small workshops who contract... its only a stones throw away and they could have had "Swiss Made" on the dial legit.....maybe a more honest statement would be made in China with a swiss movement, packaged and adjusted (correct time) in Germany??I was talking about Pierce1883
Pierce is an enterprise (or should I say a one man show) of Lars Korfhage, Dargun/Germany. The watch dials do not say "Swiss made" but "est. in 1883 Swiss" which refers to the foundation date of the old Pierce manufacture. Be careful though.
BTW: There´s no real swiss contact. For Switzerland and Italy there´s an address in Bolzano/Italy.
