Looks ok, but $600 is pretty expensive for a quartz watch. For that much, I'd at least expect a decent ETA automatic movement.
Very little of the watch has to be swiss to carry the name. The case, crystal, dial, hands etc could all be made in China. As long as the movement is swiss or the watch had any sort off assembly in Switzerland it can be called Swiss made.

As far as the cost, titanium, sapphire crystal w/ AR, 200M WR, etc $600 MSRP isn't a bad deal.
