    It would be cool if the watch could travel to the Jungfraujoch. They have a watch store that is purported to be the highest in the world. The scenery is spectacular.
    A trip to the Alps wouldn't be complete without a trip to the "Top of the World".

    Spectacular scenery.

    Look closely at the southeastern most point of the route depicted in this link.

    Murren is about 6 or 7 miles from the observatory?

    The view of the Eiger from my room at the Hotel Alpina, Murren


    That is correct, very interesting train ride and funicular ride to the top. I have stayed at the Hotel Alpina in Murren and recommend it. Very friendly folks. Murren itself is a trip in itself. Can't drive there, must take the funicular. No cars allowed. Bond, James Bond filmed there.

    Re: WUSF6 Watchmakers of the World Watch Tour

    Here are my first pictures.

    The watch came on a black strap with green back side.



    And no, that compass is no longer working properly. It sometimes turns, but never in the right way:



    First thing I thought was to try it on a croco strap to see if it would make look the watch any better:



    I do think it makes the watch look a bit more classy. Here's an on the wrist:



    Maybe I should also try a black crock strap?



    More pictures to come later.
    Best regards,
