So here’s a bit of inside baseball for you all: E.Gluck has acquired small pilot watch maker Torgoen for an unknown amount, merging a relatively unknown boutique brand with something much, much bigger.
Who is E. Gluck, you ask? They make almost every fashion watch in the market including:
That’s right: all your favorite T.J. Maxx brands. Anyway, Torgoen might not survive this transition but here’s hoping they try. I loved the company back in the early 2000s and they made some beautiful pieces including a few really bold quartz chronos from the old days. Now, however, the entire brand is pretty staid and they’d fit quite well in the E. Gluck stable.
From the release:
?E. Gluck and Torgoen share many core values including developing high-quality watches at affordable prices,? said Bobbie Weichselbaum, CEO of E. Gluck Corporation. ?We are excited to have them join our family of brands and look forward to applying our expertise to help Torgoen grow to its full potential.?
?We are thrilled to be working with one of the major forces in the watch manufacturing industry,? said Ziv Emet eCommerce Manager, Torgoen. ?We have long admired E. Gluck?s team of highly creative, passionate and talented individuals and feel they are the perfect group to help take our brand to the next level. We are excited to be a part of their expanding portfolio.?
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
