For industrial products: 60% of the manufacturing costs and the essential manufacturing step must occur in Switzerland.
Dial, case, hands may mount up to more than 40%, or assembly is outside Switzerland?

In twenty years or so, the German language will be one, massively long compound word.

Good points. I shall investigate further.

Patience is a virtue and virtue is rewarded with beauteous bounty. In this case, the beauteous bounty of knowledge. The inside line on Dietrich you've been waiting for. Expect the unexpected. Vorsprung durch wank.

Eddie Dietrich explains: "To be Swiss made, 60% of the costs have to be of Swiss origin. A Sellita SW-200 is far from reaching this percentage of the whole costs of our Skin Diver. That is why it is only labelled “Swiss Movement” and not “Swiss Made”.

So there you go. More value in the case and bracelet than a lot of us realised.
