What does assembled in Chicago mean?

Our goal is to one day manufacture as many parts of our watches here in the USA.  Currently, watch manufacturing in the US in virtually non-existent so we design our products and have them manufactured outside of the US in Europe and Asia and then sent to us to do final assembly.  Many reputable companies take this approach and we hope to change this in the coming years.
