If you contact the Swiss Chess Federation, I'm sure they will be more than happy to help you:

P.S. Although the domain to this web site is in English, the content is exclusively in German and French.

If Franz Carl Weber doesn't have one you like, I doubt anyone will. They can also order in for you from their main shop in Zürich, if necessary.

Re: Chess set

Even larger Migros with a toy section will have decent board games, have a look. Coop with toys as well, I saw them in Manor, too.
