    A band can always be switched and means nothing that the current band is from China.

    No way to answer your question without sharp, close up pictures of the watch, front sides and back, and even the movement if possible. Even then, can be difficult to tell.

    Some Movados only say Swiss Quartz. And they are authentic. The example at Jomashop States swiss Movement on the caseback.

    You can't judge watch by its strap anymore than a book by its cover.

    No reason to think it's not authentic...
    On Movado side - Bold line has casbacks saying "Swiss Movement"

    I would not at all be surprised if they are authentic AND made mostly in China (cases, dials\hands, crystal, strap, etc)
