Good morning from the USA, Dievas Team. First let me state that I am a big fan of your watch line after having recently purchased a Vortex. After doing more online research of your company I became confused as to the actual roots and location. Luckily I belong to a few online watch forums and members have helped me out. I understand your main distribution center is located in Singapore, but I see you have others around the world, and Long Island Watch being the closest to me. My concern rose when I saw your Distribution Center locations, but my understanding was the Vortex is produced in Germany. I have verified this now after reading an Interview with Mr. Anders on the “aBlog to Read”. Link attached: http://www.ablogtoread.com/dievas-vortex-diver-watch/
My question is this. I understand that you are sourcing parts from around the world to gain a competitive edge in the market place which is understandable. How will we know which Models from the Dievas line are produced at which locations? Will you spell this out in your Marketing information with a new introduction or in the Technical Specifications? Example, you have just introduced the new Vortex Professional. (Excellent looking watch by the way, congratulations). Where is this Vortex Professional manufactured?
Micro Brands are popping up on every street around the world lately as you well know. Those that will stay in business will have a proven track record with enough disclosure for the WIS crowd to be comfortable. Unfortunately, there are many companies that have started up and are simply “Grocery List” Marketers. Pick from a list of already manufactured parts at dirt cheap prices in China and let someone In China, India, Korea, etc. assemble it. Some companies take is so far as to put Swiss Made on their dials at the 6 o’clock position when in fact upon investigation a tear down of these watches, we find they are not.
I look forward to your response and where the company is headed. Best of luck to the Dievas Team.
