MADE IN SCHAFFHAUSEN

All I can say in a politically correct manner as part of this forum, is that the calibre you are referring to, has been produced by ETA according to IWC's strict standards. If IWC will test the movement and ensure that it is exactly the same as if it was made in the factory at Schaffhausen. The reason for doing so is basically to develop a collection of 'entry-level' watches at a reasonable price for budding watch lovers out there. By 'outsourcing' the production of some of their 'entry-level' watches, IWC could then focus their resources into developing more in-house movements and innovations for their 'mid - high' level watches. This explanation is of course just the tip of the iceberg....
