watch movement is considered Swiss if:
movement has been assembled in Switzerland and,
movement has been inspected by the manufacturer in Switzerland and;
components of Swiss manufacture account for at least 50 percent of the
total value, without taking into account the cost of assembly.
a watch movement is intended for export and will not be cased-up in
Switzerland, but it otherwise meets the criteria to be considered a
Swiss movement, the
watch may say "Swiss Movement" but it may not say Swiss Made
on the watch case or dial. A Swiss Movement watch may be
assembled elsewhere with other parts such as casing, needles, glass,
bracelet or straps made in other countries.
watch that says "Swiss Quartz" is considered to be a proper Swiss
watch. However, it is often improperly used by foreign manufacturers to
merely indicate that the quartz movement is of Swiss origin. A Swiss
Quartz may not necessarily be Swiss Made and probably only has Swiss
movement in it..
Swiss Movement watch may not have the same quality as a Swiss Made
watch as it is mixed with parts from other countries although the
movement is Swiss, Swiss movement watches are also cheaper than Swiss Made
