Odds are its made in China if it doesn't say "Swiss made " on the label. If it simply says "Swiss" its a Swiss movement installed in a Far Eastern factory. My Tommy Bahama Panama Pilot watch, which is a Breitling Navitimer homage, is manufactured by the Geneva Watch Group. Chunky watch with a cool strap. The Chinese install good Swiss or Japanese Miyota quartz movements so go right ahead and buy one. You're still getting a solid watch for the money. As for automatics, the jury is still out on them although Lexus movements have improved to the point where they're dependable in $50 Alpha watches. Where the Chinese haven't made their reputation (yet) is in the mid to high end watch brand market, where the Swiss and Japanese dominate. But this is a forum for affordable watches and as long as they keep time, people are not going to be overly picky about where they pick up a watch as long as it does what a watch is supposed to do.Chris B. said:That much I found myself but it doesn't tell me anything like where they are manufactured.
It's my understanding that Boccia is the only company in the world that makes all their watches out of titanium but I've never heard of them. Nor do I know where they are made.
My understanding of the brand was that they were owned by Tutima and are a more affordable alternative. I was considering one when I was in the market for my first all titanium watch and they were recommended to me. I guess their relationship with Tutima is not unlike ESQ with Movado or Tudor with Rolex. If you're looking at getting one I wouldn't hesitate; They seem to have good specs from what I've seen.It's my understanding that Boccia is the only company in the world that makes all their watches out of titanium but I've never heard of them.
