Currently under discussion by the Swiss parliament, it lays down tougher Swiss Made criteria, stipulating that at least 60% of watches' cost price must be produced in Switzerland, versus the current 50%. Around a quarter of manufacturers of low to mid-range watches have formed a Swiss Made Community of Interests to oppose the proposed revision of the law.
