I would welcome any and all suggestions. Below is what I think is the latest law describing "Swiss Made" watches.
"The main change introduced by the strengthening of the label consists in specifying a minimum value criterion for the watch, as opposed to the movement only. To be marked Swiss made, a watch has to meet the requirement of minimum 60% of Swiss value.
Previous requirements, such as the incorporation of a Swiss movement, casing-up and final inspection in Switzerland, remain in place. However, the definition of the Swiss movement adopts a minimum rate of Swiss value of 60% (as opposed to the previous 50%).
New criteria are added to the calculation of Swiss value, such as research and development and certification costs.
The new Swiss made ordinance entered into force on January 1st, 2017."
