    So easy to synchronise when they hack.

        Rado Alpine Models

        Hi!

        Nice idea, Ken, to start a thread about the Alpine models of Rado!
        And nice watches, though the crazy Japanese medallion collector seems to have a branch down under.

        I own just two Alpine models, an Arosa and a Ticino:





        Thanx to JohnPat for making this wristshot possible with the generous donation of two Ticino bracelet-links!

        Here is a list with the models/locations:
        Alpineum is a museum with a diorama of the Alpes in Luzern, Switzerland
        Arosa is a city in Switzerland.
        Berg is the name of several cities in Switzerland, Austria, Germany and also German for mountain.
        Breithorn("broad horn") is a mountain near Zermatt in Switzerland
        Brienzer is an inhabitant of the Swiss city of Brienz - in the near the Brienzer Rothorn
        Ebnat is a city in Switzerland
        Eiger is a mountain near Zermatt in Switzerland
        Esel is a mountain in Switzerland - and German for donkey
        Freiger or Wilder Freiger is a mountain in Tirol at the Austrian-Italian border
        Gorner is a glacier near Zermatt in Switzerland
        Jorasses or Grandes Jorasses is a mountain near the Montblanc in France
        Kapell is a skiing and hiking area in Austria
        Kriens is a city near Luzern in Switzerland
        Lauberhorn is a mountain and a famous ski race located near Wengen in Switzerland
        Limmat is a river in Switzerland
        Matterhorn is one of the most famous mountains of the Alpes near Zermatt, Switzerland
        Meilen is a city at the Lake Zürich in Switzerland
        Monte Rosa is the 2nd highest mountain of the Alpes in Switzerland
        Murten is a city in Switzerland
        Randegg is a city in Austria
        Rothorn("red horn") or Brienzer Rothorn is the name of a mountain near Brienz in Switzerland, a lot of other mountains in the Alpes wear this name
        Scheidegg is a mountain pass in Switzerland(Große/Large and Kleine/Small Scheidegg)
        Schilthorn is a mountain near Mürren in Switzerland
        Schreckhorn is a mountain in Switzerland
        Ticino is both a river and a Kanton(federal state) in Switzerland

        maybe to be completed ...

          I have one Possibly two depending on how fussy we get.

          first is a Schilthorn

          the other possiblity is the Kapell (chapel) I know it is the name of a famous bridge in switzerland but not sure if it is named after a specific geographic location/formation.

            Everybody has a Schilthorn except me ...

                  Hi!

                  If s.o.´s interested in the Alpine models, the list is completed.

                  BTW, there´s still another "new" one in the list, an Apis, but that´s a deity of ancient Egypt.

                        Ticino - vital travel information!

                        Canton Ticino boasts just 330,000 inhabitants, but more than 30 brothels. More than 80 percent of the clientele come from Italy, where tough laws send many would-be customers across the border into Switzerland. Some hotel and restaurant owners have cashed in on the boom by converting their businesses into brothels.

                          Fascinating. People must now venture from the ancestral home of Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus (Caligula) in order to fornicate?

                            Yes, "Silvio The Great" is a very honest man and takes care of morality, law and order in Italy.
