Just imagine what other stuff is secretly Swiss-made, which you folks import from God knows where

Could it be that my 25 CHF Tschibo watch is actually Swiss made?

Re: The "I found a deal/bargain" thread...

I've just found out about this site that claims to offer a free banks account for two years and a free year of TCS breakdown cover for new arrivals to Switzerland.

Unfortunately, I missed these opportunities so can't comment on the process or success etc.

It's plastic. Saw a lot of them during sommer sale at Manor for this price or even cheaper.
BTW, I'm happy with my glas (not outdoor though) version of them.

Ahhhh man I didn't notice that! I just saw:

• Dishwasher safe (do not place glasses into a crowded dishwasher)
And assumed they really were toughened glass.

Thanks for correcting me.

Finished up standing in front of a parking ticket machine with a queue behind me and no possibility to tell the damn thing I had a shopping receipt in my hand.

Re: The "I found a deal/bargain" thread...

Dali Zensor 7 speakers (pair) reduced to half price at Digitec... 499 from 998! https://www.digitec.ch/de/s1/product...recher-5881609

For those wanting a large pair of speakers for a home cinema kit they are basically unbeatable for that price... I am tempted myself!

When I read 22yard's post I was imagining that big, ugly, black thing dominating my living room.

When I grew up, we had a separate TV-room - but the things were tiny. Now some of us lack the living space.
