I have a West End Impearable. Seems to be a nice watch. I see they have a good history. I kinda wonder abort their place of manufacture. Any thoughts?

West End Watches are Swiss, but their biggest market is in India.
One of the first military issued watches in the world, to India in WW1 as can be seen in this period advertisement.
