Swiss-Made wristwatches are certainly in a league of their own. This prestigious and highly esteemed designation only appears on the dials and case backs of fine timepieces that are actually produced in Switzerland, where many of the leading watchmakers in the world have their headquarters and production facilities.
A wristwatch can only be branded as Swiss-made if the movement inside, being mechanical, automatic or quartz is exclusively produced in Switzerland. This Swiss-made movement has to be encased entirely in Switzerland…and the final inspection for this watch must be completed in Switzerland by the manufacturer.
Numerous watchmakers feature Swiss-made movements in their timepiece collections, however the movements are only produced and inspected in Switzerland. The remaining production of these timepieces is assembled and completed in countries outside of Switzerland.
