I was just being snarky to point out the worldwide nature of the biz. I wouldn't think that this would be a good place to discuss old Bulovas, but perhaps new ones have some Japanese input and would be appropriate to discuss here.I'd say that's your prerogative.
Perhaps you can enlighten me, as to which parts, or processes in the creation of a Bulova, are actually Japanese.
Hi Noah, I don't think "loosely defined" - in relation to Japanese watch makers who are members of the JCWA ( Japan Clock & Watch Association) is the case anymore.To try and make things easy, the forum entitled "Japanese Watch Forum" is for watches which were manufactured by a Japanese company (a company headquartered in Japan). Where that Japanese company's factories are located does not factor into it, which is analogous to how "Swiss Made" or "Made in Japan" is legally (and some might say, loosely) defined. As Citizen now owns Bulova, discussion of Bulova watches (of any age) are permitted. This is easier than having to determine when any particular Bulova was made, and under what ownership. We like easy
