Default Swiss Made?

Gonna be hard to convince me. The Tritium tubes are made by Micro Tech, a Swiss company. So maybe the dial and hands are made or assembled in Switzerland. The plastic case? The movement is Chinese. Runs well though and I didn’t pay a whole lot for it when I bought it a couple of years ago. Just had it regulated and thus exposed the movement and caused me to post. Thoughts?

In Switzerland maybe they sell it.
It's a Chinese product, not very good quality ....

"Swiss made" inscription is 50% of Swiss costs.
It's enough to make a watch in China for $ 10, put it in Switzerland where the labor costs are high ($ 20), and we have a legal watch with the words "swiss made"
In short...

Your explanation makes sense.

No problem
Swiss quality is history (except Rolex, AP, VC, PP and several others)
Omega produces bracelets and watch cases in China, Panerai also ...
