***Beginning in June 2016, the Soarway Transglobe will no longer feature a dial that reads "Made in Nepal", as Kobold no longer produces watches in Nepal following the two earthquakes of 2015.
The Soarway Transglobe will continue to be produced at Kobold's headquarters in Pennsylvania using a U.S.-made case. The new generation dials read "Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania".
