Review of Beuchat swordfish logo"

Beuchat classified its products into three namely spearfishing and freediving, snorkeling and scuba diving. The company started in 1934 under the pillars of Georges Beuchat, a man known for being part of a famous Swiss watchmaking clan. Back then, the company was called by another name.

In fact, in its 75 years of existence it changed names several times from "Peche Sport" to "Beuchat" to "Beuchat Sub" to "Beuchat International".

In the 70's, the founder created the Beuchat swordfish logo that can be seen in every scuba diving product launched by the company.

From France, it branched out to other countries worldwide. In 1982, Georges decided to sell the company to a certain Alvarez de Toledo who later on sold it to the Margnat family after 20 years.
