I assume that you are talking about products made by companies that are based in these countries, regardless of whether the product itself is actually made in that country today.  If so, there are many products of the sort you mention made in these countries:

  • Mercedes-Benz automobiles.  This is a German company.
  • Adidas.  This is also a German company that makes sporting goods.
  • BMW automobiles.  This is also a German company.  The acronym stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke, which means "Bavarian Motor Works."  Bavaria is a part of southern Germany.
  • An example of a Swiss company is the Rolex company.  This company makes high-end, luxury wristwatches.
