Internet is full of resources comparing the two brands so I am not going to add since to me it also depends on the model and parts.

However, the later questions is more straight forward, Swiss made implies the whole watch is made in Swiss or at least a good portion of it (Google Swiss Made Percentage). Swiss Made Movement means only the inside mechanical or quartz movement aka driver / engine / heart (once again or good portion of it) is made in Swiss, so the rest of the watch is likely not.

Does it matter in the real world between Swiss Made / Mov't ?? It is hard to say but if you are collecting, you probably want as much Swiss as possible, but for a user it probably doesn't matter too much, but it is generalizing again of course.

Debatable. There are some excellent German brands like Sinn, Muehle Glasshutte and Stowa that use Swiss Movements. Then there are far less stellar brands that will slap a swiss movement into any cheap old case, like Invicta's new bastard child.

Not disagreeing with that, like I said need to research and look at each model and part.

Japanese Miyota 9015 is an amazing and more accurate out of th box alternative to the Swiss movements. Same beat, more reliable and cheaper for micro brands. Yet to see it being applied at mainstream brand level though.

Is Vincero a good watch brand? I see a lot of youtubers recommend it but only because they are sponsored by them. They are in the price range of 100-200 dollars. I think their appearance are meh.. Are they similar to fossil watches?

I second that Orient suggestion. Great bang for the buck.

Just so others are clear, this is list price development, not the value of any particular watch...and it doesn't not mean that your owned watch is appreciating.
It also doesn't show ASP or even release size...

That all being said, we know that the companies have been increasing their pricing. If people are willing to pay, why not!
