    a timepiece that people [YouTube Video]

    [...] you're getting a handmade watch. It's a timepiece that people [...] wants to make the most basic timepiece.
    (YouTube; Are you a Rolex or a Patek?)

    Would you be so kind as to tell me what is being said here?

    Thanks.

    Re: a timepiece that people [YouTube Video]

    That's very unclear. I wonder if there is a little bit of the audio missing. It sounds like "It's a timepiece that people are spending the night and wants to make the most ...", which makes no sense. I've watched it about six times and I've tried to lipread it as well as listening to it and that's what I get every time.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    He says "It's a timepiece that people are spending up to nine months to make the most basic timepiece."
