    At what price point do you get a hand-built watch?

    Do you have to spend $20k+? Is it with a $10k UN? A $7k Rolex?

    Are mid-range watches hand-assembled?

    Hand made for 650 ? I really doubt it. Hand assembled is more realistic.

    OK, so hand-assembled - are most swiss made watches from a reputable maker at least put together by hand?

    Say, an Oris Diver watch?

    Nope.
    Better to regret something you have done, than something you haven't done...
