Getting a Piece of the Cheese!

YOU CAN HAVE A PIECE OF THE CHEESE TOO…read end of this post to find out how!

With wonderful timing – yesterday – the first day of Snow here in Zurich, FunkyForty had the opportunity to attend the Official Press day for the Tag Heuer Stöckli Special Ski Edition.Version 2

The twinkle in their eyes is a reflection of just how excited the two men (Luc Decroix, TAG Heuer International Sales Director – right and Marc Gläser CEO of Stöckli – left) are about this brilliant collaberation between 2 well renowned Swiss companies.

120 sets of TAG Heuer Stöckli Special Edition Skis have been produced and will be sold within 30 TAG Heuer shops worldwide – the cool thing is that this includes Airport shops…love it.. go on vacation and buy your Christmas skis enroute- smile!

Personally I love the fact that it will be super easy to find the skis after a break as at 120 skis worldwide chances are super slim you pick up the wrong skis.

As a goodie bag we got a super cute Hat from Stöckli and a piece of Cheese. Not just any Cheese – exclusive Cheese from Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of Tag Heuer!


Every year Biver produces approx. 5 tonnes of cheese on his Swiss Alpine farm. He refuses payment for his cheese and offers it only to friends, family or people he specifically chooses stating: “I will be the master of my cheese until the last piece.”

Exciting for my lovely FunkyForty readers is that


…the first 5 people to either newly subscribe to FunkyForty in the pink box below, or send an email to with their address, will be sent a piece of Biver’s exclusive cheese! (due to various import restrictions offer applies to Switzerland only)


Wishing you all a fab start to the weekend!
