Since I always mention that I'm not a "collector" it is surprising how many watches I have to chose from. :-o ;)

Yes but they know you're an appreciator!

very cool. I have a watch from Tissot, and they make several RhB watches that are quite cool, but they didn't have them at the duty free. I got a neat one with a touch face. I push a button on the side, and then tap the face to turn on weather, stop watch, altitude, and even turn the face into a compass.
That Swatch has nice graphics.
nice to have friends like that. :-)

Interesting explanation!
BTW the Gotthard watch has enough "Swiss Made" markings, from packaging to the actual watch, to make it "believable".

BTW at the 2010 Olympics we received plenty of SWAG. Since I volunteered for both the Olympics and the Paralympics I got two of the Swatch watches. One I passed on to an "appreciator" in Switzerland, the other is part of the "non-collection".

Among the Swag enough "mountain gear" to last the rest of my life. All of it appreciated and rotated on a regular basis. :)) ;)
