Some Bulova history

Ok, I apologize if this info has been covered in other posts, but just a quick summary, as it addresses some questions regarding what Bulova actually manufactured.

Bulova owned the factory(s) in Switzerland that manufactured ebauches for their watches. An ebauche is a raw movt, and can be modified to a particular finished design. There are references to the factory being operational by 1912. Before US modifications to raw ebauches became common practise for Bulova, I suspect that complete movements and watches were manufactured here in Switzerland.
