You are not looking hard enough. At least the majority of micro brew companies are honest, they will tell you their watches are made in Hong Kong. The only difference between some swiss made brands and, micro brew is that the Swiss has a watch priest that bless their watches prior to leaving Hong Kong. subtlelaugh.gifsubtlelaugh.gif The priest must get paid.

It would be interesting to see who makes what brand and which factories make multiple brands under 1 roof.

it's no a mystery that the Jenny Family aka Walca owns Doxa along with others and have a Swiss manufacturing facility as well as another in HK...nor that the large percentage of Swiss watch companies outsource to HK.
...and yes I am playing the devils advocate as far as Doxa who does put in writing that they meet the Swiss federations guidelines as far as "Swiss Made" which is 51% of the watches cost to manufacture...
...I do agree with Johnny that more companies should speak up and disclose the truth as well.
...the main reason many of the micro-brands are so successful is due to their truthfulness as to the origins of their watches...or at least those supported here on 3T.
...I can name a couple favorites on another forum who will go so far as to not only make false statements and paint a blurred picture by saying certain parts come from different parts of the world in order to mask the fact that they are made in HK and duping good yet gullible WIS into further spreading the lies while they sit back and say notta...the latter being what truly p's me off.
...I don't really care where a watch is made as long as it is made well and sold at a price representative of what is put into it...nothing more nothing less...

Amen brotha! Must agree this is nothing new we have known this for years. C'mom some micro brew aren't so bad after all. I will stick with Dievas watches, and a few others.

Johnny,, find it tough to believe.. the web site deleted the
photos within an hours after u posted on 3T..

How the company web owner knew so fast n reacted??
Thks for your link,, it's indeed informative..

I enjoy watches esp buying some with good build quality;
country of made is one of last consideration...
