The market for 'affordable' Swiss watches is a minefield economically - as Chinese/Japanese brands improve in quality and their marketing slowly increases their market share.

Add currency, trade wars and labor costs - not a business to be in stress free ...

My US purchased Steinharts remain many of my favorites: solidly built, well designed and nicely finished for the price. My preference was they remained with a US distributor - but - the 'free market' makes the determination.
