This is a pretty cool pictoral that was prepared by Bill Yao to show the WIS community why it takes so long to produce and ship "Pre-built" watches. I own one of the MKII LRRP watches and the quality is excellent! Here is a link and a couple of examples of the steps that are taken by Bill at MKII to get a new MKII watch out to a customer:

The quality control resumes and is a constant obsession throughout the process. Here we check the hand alignment, crown operation, and the movement clamps inside the case. Based on this review we classify each piece by the amount of re-work required, if any.

(a) Re-checking the hands for scratches, (b) bending the hour hand to travel parallel to the dial when installed, (c, d) putting a curve into the minute and seconds hand so that the custom red tipped sweep hand will clear the crystal, (e) adjusting the hand setter to the 2836-2, (f) setting the hour hand

Wow, this is really very cool to see, and hear about Mark. Makes you appreciate the watches,
workmanship, as well as person behind a watch company like Mr. Yao even more I think. In
the end it sounds like these watches are really worth the wait ! Pre-built watches (aka What the h*ll takes so long!) 803574 Pre-built watches (aka What the h*ll takes so long!) 803574 ..Genuinely sheds light

even more as a result. Thanks once again Mark !
