Jason here. I’ll be helping out the Wrist Watch Review with some posts in the upcoming weeks/months. I’m not nearly as big a watch whore as John, since, like they say about real whores, you gotta get’m while they’re young.
So I’ll start my now-sure-to-be-short tenure here with the topic of “Swiss Made” watches. What does it take to get a label of “Swiss” or have “Swiss Movement”? Apparently, not a whole lot.
What is interesting and an eye opener is how the requirement for the watch movement and case needs only to reach 50% of total value and the watch is still deemed Swiss.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
