All of these watches appear to be made in japan and are very high in quality. the one i received had it's band ripped away from the watch during postage [buy the .99 insurance-cheap] BUT Mininthebox made it right as quickly as possible. in my opinion you simply cannot go wrong in buying anything from this manufacturer or supplier. they stand behind their products 100%!!! i have been their customer for 2-3 years and have always been handled fairly or more so. sometimes when i have had a complaint their response to fix the problem was so nice i was embarrassed to have overreacted in the first place. this is a very professional site. if you don't find it here then try their sister company 'lightinthebox.com'.this is not a paid or in any way compensated endorsement. i am a real person and these are my true feelings. thank you!
