There has been some discussion lately about "Made in Germany". Here is a good example for Made in Germany and product transparency:

Greve-Uhrendesign (only in German, sorry for that).



No question remains unanswered:

Case suplierer: Fricker FRICKER GmbH & Co.KG ---- Feinwerktechnische Manufaktur Made in Germany

Dial: Cador Homepage befindet sich im Aufbau Made in Germany

Strap: EULIT + TROLLBEADS das Original seit 1976 Made in Germany

Hands: Welcome to Estima

Movement: ETA 2824-2

Assembled:ERMANO - AGEND OF RONDA Pforzheim/Germany

Thanks for the details Mike,

but this is an example - IMO - that transparency can't transform a duck into a swan :roll:,

That watch sure seems "Made in Germany" to me.

Again, it is MY belief that if a watch uses any German parts and/or is assembled and QC tested in Germany, it "can" classify itself as "German". But I would classify a watch "Made in Germany" as one that is almost entirely made from parts/components actually made in Germany.

Still a bit confusuing but I have better clarity now. :-!

Hi Volker,

Completelöy agreed. However making mention of his sources is kind of...................well....................exemplary. Some manufacturers should take a leaf out of his book. Just my two cents.
