I CALL BULLSHIT!
For anyone who dreams of buying a fine "Swiss made watch" brand new, from a certain television network publicizing "shopping from home" - and thinks that they will be buying a "down home" made in Switzerland watch for south of $1,000 - consider this a public service announcement. You may indeed be getting a watch "knocked together in one of the cantons" for that price. But nearly every part of that watch - at that price point? Came from a place where Chinese food is not considered an "exotic" / "ethnic" treat.
Consider this - lunch in Switzerland - nothing too fancy? $35 US. Do you really think that if a restaurant can't make wages, etc. based on something lower than $35 US, that the mighty SWISS giants can meet wages for a wrist watch (not a basic lunch) for less than $300? I will go even further, anything south of $1,000 US - ask to examine the "passport" of the watch in question. I am not claiming the it won't meet the "heritage" standards as set forth by the latest ruling. I am saying that as someone who has lived in the US, Japan, Canada, Portugal, Scotland, Portugal and Finland - it might be as "multi-national" as me ; )
