Pardon me as I laughed when I read your 大动肝火
It may be better to do so though...

I bottled up everything in my heart and that is why am so stressed and moody.

:lol:

Do you have the strong belief that Japan made products are of better quality than those in Asian countries?

Is it more about the culture of the people who treasure finesse? Rather than country specific?

Erm.... To a large extent, I think Japan made products are still better. However, this is like almost non-existent Liao. On the backside of the product, it can be indicated as MIJ and assembled in Thailand. :shrug:

having said this, I think the way the product is used has a direct bearing to the length of its useful life.

My watch has been with me for 11 years. Recently sent it for servicing. When I first took it back, it didn't work. :roll: sent it back again, the uncle said might be time's up le. :cry:

Thank god, the second servicing did the trick and my beloved 11 yo was ticking again. 那几天没有它的日子真难过。

Label Made in Japan but is made in Thailand?

Cannot be bah?

Somehow I have this impression that a workman who has a deeply rooted culture is more likely to have great pride in his craft. 慢工出细活

For those workmen who are preoccupied with the daily survival demands, are more likely to pay less attention to the finesse of the craft, to just get it done with in a production line, to produce the greater number of products in the shorter time frame, to get to the trading market to sell the products faster.

China and Thailand factory working conditions less robotic setup? More dependable on human touch? Higher chance of product variance?

Slight difference between "made" and " assembled". I would take it to mean that the parts are manufactured in Japan but then sent to Thailand to be put together. Then it really depends on whether you feel that the manufacture or the putting together is more impact on the product's quality.

I think the main reason why things are not lasting as long now is not where they are made/assembled (although QC etc does have some impact), but it's that manufacturers now realise that making things that last too long is bad for ther bottom line. If something lasts for 30 yrs, then the consumer won't be shopping again until then. It's called "designed obsolesence", where something is designed to last for a limited period only.

Yes, slmkhoo read me right. It would b misrepresenting to label mij when the products are in fact mit. I wrote "made in japan and assembled in thailand".

I personally find thailand made prducts are still ok given the price. As for mic, i think the QC is cmi. Buy at own risk.
