I really can't add much more since I haven't spent much time watch shopping in Switzerland for the last ten-fifteen years. Regarding Bucherer's. It is the largest Rolex dealer in Switzerland and has stores in just about every major city. You never know what you can find there unless you look but I would classify them as an exclusive "Bahnhofstrasse Jewelry Store" dealing mainly with $1K-up exclusive watch brands. The same level as Tiffany's. They have a big store in Luzern in the old city shopping section across the Ruess River bridge from the train station. Nice to window shop there though. If you are a tourist in Switzerland, except for ShopVille at the Zürich HB, you will probably never see a typical US type mall. Tourist area streets will just be lined with small shops selling cookoo clocks, music boxes (cheap to very expensive), watches, jewelry, embroidered clothing and patches, wood carvings, army knives, chocolates and other Swiss items known to the world. Switzerland is NOT a cheap country. That's why I eat mainly at Migros and Coop grocery stores.
