A majority of the parts are made by Weiss. If you bothered to read anything about the watch movement, it is a Swiss movement, but each one is assembled and finished by Weiss in the US, not Korea, not China.

Ah, another "made in the U.S.A" but just assembled. You know,
fit together the separate component parts. C'mon guys, let's not water down what it really means. It's a bad road to travel.

They make their components and assemble/finish the movement...not anything like the other companies. This is a legit watchmaker

They receive the movements in parts, finish the parts and assemble the movements...how hard is that to understand. Cameron has extensive training as a watchmaker from AP and the Hayek watchmaking school. Do a little reading guys and don't just blindly comment and crap on an incoming thread...

Keep it up...
