They are at Baselworld, in Switzerland, and yet their watches are all made in China. It seems like most of the other brands are made in Switzerland. Probably why there's no one in their booth...

They do have a Swiss Made line (Prestige) but most are made in China. Basel isn't just limited to Swiss brands. Android was there last year and I doubt they have ever produced a Swiss Made watch.

Is Baselworld strictly a Swiss watch show or is it just a watch show held in Switzerland?It's a global economy today and watches are like cars, the parts are often made in one place and assembled elsewhere. Stuhrling Original watches do have Chinese movements (and to be fair some are good) but some Swiss movements have Chinese parts. Baselworld also allows Invicta, which is considered a maker of fashion watches, not luxury watches, and Invicta uses Chinese movements,soBaselworld is an eclectic mix of both high end expensive watches and low end affordable watches. As for the staffing at the booth, maybeSturling has sequestration and that daywas the Stuhrling furlough day LOL?
