Victorinox watches also knowns as the Swiss Army watches.
The manufacturer Victorinox is 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.
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

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 vame 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.
My friend has a
burgeoning collection of Swiss Army watches, and his prized item, not
for how much he paid for it but because of its functionality, is the ST
5000 Digital Compass model. At just half a grand, it is one of the
most, if not the most, sophisticated digital compasses I've ever seen
on a wristwatch.
A small LCD above
the 6H displays the user's numeric heading. This Swiss Army watch will
also indicate the magnetic north, and has a built-in spirit level to
optimize precision. In addition, the user's bearing is shown, and it
enables you to lock that memory to ensure that you're kept on track.
Its beauty lies in
the light-emitting diodes, or LED, which can be used to navigate in the
dark. A 5-point LED system also indicates any needed course
corrections. In addition, the crystal is made of antireflective mineral
material, which makes it very easy to consult while diving.
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. See the image above.
