This article about how Leica M10s are made is more interesting for the comments than the actual article.
Simply beautiful. Every Leica is a handcrafted masterpiece. As a camera should be.
Why though? Hand-assembled hardware doesn’t improve the picture quality in any meaningful way. All it does is jack up the price because economies of scale disappear.

If you ever shot with an M and learned to appreciate the rangefinder experience you would answer your own question.

You sound like the reason I wouldn’t want to get into making overpriced tchotchkes for the filthy rich.
