    All about "swiss made" and "swiss parts" here: The Swiss Watch Industry - Swiss Made

    Swiss parts: This marking indicates that the movement is composed of movement-blanks which have been manufactured in Switzerland, but assembled abroad. This indication may only appear on the movement, and never on the outside of the watch.
    Kind regards

    It means.. "I'm trying to make you think it's Swiss Made."

    Invicta is a favourite in this forum.

    And the label "Swiss Made" is trying to convince you the watch is made in Switzerland. As with Swiss Parts a watch labeled Swiss Made contains only some parts made in Switzerland. Opacity dominates both definitions.
