Victorinox Watches aka Swiss Army Watches: Function and Form

Victorinox, the makers of Swiss Army watches, are more popularly known for their world-class knives rather than their outstanding watches. Almost everyone has at least one of those stainless, all-purpose, take-it-anywhere-with-you knives with the distinctive cross-and-shield emblem. Since the creation of the first Swiss Army Knife in 1897 in the small village of Ibach, Victorinox has prided itself in crafting only tools of utmost precision and versatility.


This centuries-old tradition has been carried on in the manufacture of Swiss Army watches, which reflect the company's image osimplicity and class. Other Victorinox products, such as camping gear, travel gear, cutlery, and apparel are also known for their trademark durability, but it's the Swiss Army watches that you can take with you wherever you go, be it in a plane, underwater, while rappelling of a cliff, or conquering the Amazon forests.


4 Categories
Swiss Army watches are classified into four categories: Active, Classic, Professional, and Pocket/Travel. Make sure that the watch's dial says, "Swiss Army," as this is the only company authorized by the Swiss government to carry the Swiss Army name. The Pocket/Travel collection carries handsome pocket watches that are reminiscent of centuries past. There are pocket watches, leash watches, and pack watches whose prices are all within reach of the average traveler. Swiss Army watches cost anywhere between $100 to $1000.


To perhaps offer a dress watch for enthusiasts of Swiss Army watches, Victorinox came up with the Alliance Diamond Model for women, classified under the "Classic" series. It has a scratch-resistant hardened sapphire crystal, a genuine Mother-of-Pearl dial with a date window at 3H, a push-button deployment clasp, and 40 full-cut diamonds. Although it's water-resistant up to 100 meters, I don't think I'll be wearing one on my next fun dive lest a trigger fish nips at one of its bezel diamonds.


Swiss Army watches are very simple in design, with clean lines, uncomplicated numbers, and straightforward functions. All models are also reasonably priced and always come with a warranty, which assures you of only the strictest quality assurance standards.
