Hi - I'm still learning about vintages, and particularly the pitfalls in trying to buy a vintage.
My question relates to the words "swiss" or "swiss made" appearing on the dials on vintage swiss watches. Is my gut feeling that in the 50, 60's and perhaps 70's, manufacturers didnt not always put such wording on the dials of their watches?
Or is it a case of where manufacturers cased watches in countries outside Switzerland (eg, GP i believe for a period assembled watches in NY), they omitted the wording?
I am basically trying to find out if a vintage doesnt carry such wording, its the signs of a poor refurbishment.
