I am assuming they are made in Switzerland, but I do not see a "made in" anywhere on the outside or in any info received ..maybe it says "made in..." on the inside somewhere I do not know.
That is odd.
Most countries proudly put stickers showing its origins.
Probably there is a law in Switzerland allowing some products to be marketed with a more relaxed requisites.
Optimist! Otherwise this would be 'experimental business law 101'. Experiments in this area may become very expensive (as pointed out earlier: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=251&start=20#p3391)

Just looked at a website based on USA law (after all, they own the internet, or so many of them would have us believe), and it looks like a country of origin sticker isn't needed for imports that are for personal use.

Edited to add: all in good humour, of course! I hope no-one gets offended :)

From Wikipedia:

"Accordingly, there are two conditions that must be fulfilled for goods to be legally labelled as being of Swiss origin:

- The Swiss portion of the production cost must be at least 50 percent (until 1 January 2017, then 60 percent[2]).
- The most important part of the manufacturing process must have taken place in Switzerland."

Apparently the DM42 can not use a Made in Switzerland sticker because most if its production happens outside Switzerland.

[rant] Yeah, sometimes it would pay to read a bit before starting a thread. ;) And BTW, the picture is here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=251&start=10#p3372 (proper linking instead of thoughtless copying & pasting is appreciated as well). [/rant]
