None of this is necessarily a bad thing, and small watch makers are often proud of where they get their parts from. You see, only the largest of watch makers are able to be "vertically integrated." Meaning they make all (or most) of the parts that go into the watches themselves, plus assemble the watches. Even then, there are often highly specialized parts that are sourced. Behemoth watch maker Swatch still relies on certain outside companies to make watch parts from time to time. That, or they just buy the parts manufacturer and bring them into the family. Swatch is one of the only European watch makers that can be said to actually have an integrated manufacturing system. Large makers such as Citizen and Seiko in Japan likely make most of their parts, some of which are perhaps actually manufactured in China (though lets not stress that part of it). We know that American based Fossil relies heavily on China for parts, which makes sense given their less than world class wrist watch offerings.
When I didn't include doctors in a list of professionals that tend to be watch lovers I got a bit of slack. In response, I will discuss a watch that will appeal to watch loving doctors as it is especially made for them.

Though I have mentioned Temption Cherubin watches before, I've never featured the Cherubin GDA model. Another limited edition (500 pieces) Cherubin model. This is likely to be one of the most sophisticated Cherubin watches, and this model is beautiful with its red trimmed parts. The watch also comes in different trims including blue, green, and a few others I believe. The Cherubin watches are at the top of the German Temption's line-up. Highly stylized watches that clearly retain class and dignity without succumbing to any fleeting appeal of avant garde design. Basically I am saying that while there are no other watches out there that resemble the Temption Cherubin GDA, but nevertheless the Cherubin fits in nicely with other high-end watches and has lasting appeal.
