The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph 25th Anniversary celebrates 25 years of the Royal Oak model
When a watch is Swiss made, it is often seen as a quality stamp, a guarantee for quality. Which is not necessarily true. The Swiss made label is nothing more than a guarantee that a watch has a movement that is Swiss and its movement is cased up in Switzerland and the manufacturer carries out the final inspection in Switzerland.
A watch movement is considered Swiss if the movement has been assembled in Switzerland and the movement has been inspected by the manufacturer in Switzerland and the components of Swiss manufacture account for at least 50 percent of the total value, without taking into account the cost of assembly. From 1 January 2017, the Swiss law set the minimum at 60 percent.
Again, it is not a guarantee for quality, it is more a Swiss law to protect watch industry. Just like champagne can only be called champagne if it comes from that area in France.
