I’m a big fan of both Swiss and German engineering. The Germans make the finest cars on the planet. The Swiss make the very best watches available.
My brain fits better with the Swiss model. I am fascinated by small things. (However, I did have major fun, the last time I drove a BMW!)
Why is it that these two similar countries excel in these two areas? I am not sure, but a Swiss or German graduate student should do a PhD dissertation on that topic.
