Relative to this post here and the OP.....

Quote from CW.."Just for the record... SH is not owned by Fossil...we have nothing to do with Fossil...never have....probably never will... SH and Fossil parted company a long time ago before we got involved with SH"

This document will show that SH reformed as a Limited Company in March 2007. CWL made the move to Swiss production in August of 2008.

Thanks Aifo.

How long did it take you to find this post? Affiliations can be far-reaching.

Hi Russ, just happened to find it when I search "Hong Kong" under the forum. A coincidence really. Not sure how much bearing there is to the topic post but seems related so linked up for discussion sake.

It is very relative to the early days of CWL and how the relationships were developed into CW watch production.

Sorry for spreading any misinformation in that thread! Glad to be corrected.
When owned by Fossil or after, the people of SH do very nice work!
