The bottom half of the dial is also interesting. Sandoz is not a Swiss Made watch. Just to make that very clear. Sandoz watches to my knowledge are assembled in Hong Kong and Korea, but the quality is very good. That is the only feasable explanation why Sandoz can offer those watches in such quality at lower prices then Seiko and not to mention Swiss Made dive watches.
The indication of the SWISS ETA CALIBRE (French for caliber) is a nice try, a bit like METHODE CHAMPENOISE on the Champagne bottles not coming from either Epernay or Reims, the two only French origins allowed to carry "Champagne" on the label.
Again, the printing here is very nicely done. My Seiko Flightmaster printing looks like children handwriting in comparison...
