JBH was kind enough to give me some oil that Breitling gave him as a gift. It looks so nice, I'm almost afraid to use it. Anyone read french?

Cant be for a watch

Hey John,

I don't read French but I reckon it is too nice to eat or use.:cool1:

What great looking olive oil (extra virgin's the best grade). I guess you have to decide if the pleasure is in owning it, or using it. Either choice should give you much enjoyment!

I'd be very interested to know the connection between a French Olive Oil company and Breitling - any clues?

I was sort of curious about that as well. Breitling is a Swiss company and Switzerland is much closer to Italy (they touch each other), and everyone knows that anything from Italy is far superior to anything from France. :D :thumbup: (not that I'm biased or anything of course)

Although, how come the dial on my Olympus is written in French?? :confused1:

I think the Breitling bakerlite watch box is made in France and I noticed the first language in all of my booklets is French.The only thing I am thinking is that French used to be the international language many years ago and it might be a hangover from tradition.:confused1:

At least they are not English,as they would be leaking and most likely broken down.:lol:
