    What countries are your watches from?

    Where in the world are your watches from?

    Rather than listing watches by maker, I thought it would be fun to see what countries are represented in our collections.

    If you're inclined, list the countries you have watches from, along with one or more watches from each country. I'll start:

    Japan: Seiko Bell-Matic
    France: Baltic Bicompax 0001
    Austria: Habring Foudroyante
    Australia: Melbourne Watch Company Collins
    Russia: Poljot alarm watch
    United States: Braithwait Classic Slim
    China: Sea-Gull Airforce 1963 Reissue
    Germany: Guinand 12h Flying Officer
    Switzerland: Rolex Explorer I
    United Kingdom: Christopher Ward C1 Moonphase

    I assume you mean where the companies are based rather than where they are built?

    Mostly that: Where the companies are based, where the watch is shipped from, or what country the companies considers itself to be in. Some countries of origin --like a Rolex from Switzerland or Grand Seiko from Japan-- will be clearer than others.

    A couple are from Japan, and I have a few American micros with ETA movements. The rest are 100% Swiss.
