Victorinox Swiss Army – History

Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery shop in Ibach, Switzerland in 1884. Seven years later, in 1891, Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier’s Knife. After the death of his mother in 1909, Karl Elsener introduced the brand name Victoria and the iconic Cross and Shield emblem is registered as a trademark. With the advent of stainless steel, Karl Elsener coined the company’s name, Victorinox, by combining his mother’s name with “inox”, an abbreviation of the French word for rust-resistant steel, “inoxydable”. After World War II, the “Original Swiss Army Knife” began its successful progression around the world and enjoyed exceptional popularity. In 1989, Victorinox entered the timepiece business in the United States under the brand name “Swiss Army”. Ten years later, Victorinox joined the Travel Gear market, partnering with TRG Group in St. Louis. And in 2001, Victorinox fashion was introduced in the US to further capture the brand’s essence of practical luxury. In 2002, in order to promote global unity, the Victorinox Swiss Army timepiece brand was launched internationally. In 2007, Victorinox set up Victorinox Swiss Army Fragrance AG, and in 2009 Victorinox Swiss Unlimited was launched. 2014 marks Victorinox Swiss Army’s 130th anniversary, and each Victorinox Swiss Army product embodies the spirit of the Legendary Original Swiss Army Knife, a universal symbol of Functionality, Innovation, Quality and Iconic Design.

    I assume that this watch will appeal more to watch lovers / collectors.
    In fact, I have a luggage of this brand in red and when handle broke, they repaired for free even though warranty was over.

    Overall this a good looking Swiss made mechanical self winding watch with a valjoux/ETA 7753 movement.

    This is a big, heavy mechanical chronograph using a swiss ETA movement (Valjoux 7753). And it's a keeper.

    First, there aren't a lot of 7753 chronos out there, even fewer in this price range. Most other mechanical chronos in this price range use the more common 7750 movement which puts the subregister (tiny dials for counting elapsed minutes and hours, etc.) in the 6,9,12 position and displays the day/date combo at the three o'clock position. If you like that layout better, Hamilton has a bunch of 7750 chronos for about the same price as this watch.

    But if you prefer the 3,6,9 layout better -- the layout used by Omega on their famous Speedmaster Moon Watch and by Rolex on their Daytona Chronograph -- this watch is probably your best bet. Besides the mechanical movement and layout, there are a few other pluses to keep in mind. First, the size of the watch is put to good use as the luminous numbers remain un-scrunched or covered over since the sub-registers fit neatly inside the main time indices. This is unusual in chronos and it makes for a far more legible watch face than most. And the legibility is actually enhanced by the maroon colored face and offset, black subregisters. Second, the luminous numerals and watch hands are encased in a silvery white gold or rhodium, giving the watch a dressier look but also enhancing readability in lower-light situations where the white gold catches available light perfectly.

    Two other things to keep in mind. Unlike most sports chronos, this watch has a non-screwed down crown. Meaning you can hand wind it without having to unscrew the crown. This is good if you like to nervously fiddle with your watch (which I do), but bad if you plan on routinely swimming with the thing.

    I bought the last one it seems. Great Watch, great price!

    It's large and easy to read. It's also beautiful. No Battery, it's mechanical/ self winding with design features that go back to the 1800's. Lot's of WEB info. Check out ETA 7753 on Google.

    Comes in BLUE and BLACK also. But Deep Maroon is best for me.

    Hate to say this, but it really does "Run like a Swiss Watch"...ugh.

    Probably my last watch...

    First off, this is a beautiful watch manufactured by a reputable company. In fact, I own the blue dial version of this watch and so I am well versed on how it works and how it should work. It is in this light that I write this review.

    There are two problems with this watch. First, it was shipped unsecured in a box that allowed the watch to bounce back and forth during shipping. Kind of reckless for so nice a watch. And though not obviously damaged, it might have caused issue #2. It keeps what I consider poor time. It runs fast 30 seconds a day. This is not a chronometer and so I understand not to expect chronometer accuracy. However, the blue faced version that I have had for 2 years keeps + or - 1 second a day after 2 years - and without ever needing service. This watch was 30 seconds fast out of the box and after running consistently for the past week, it maintains that speed. Therefore, I paid $800 for a watch that keeps worse time than a $50 Seiko Automatic. That is my main issue. However, I also need to warn potential buyers of the pitfalls of buying through Amazon.

    I twice contacted Amazon and informed them of my desire to keep the watch but get it timed. They ignored both emails. I then sent them a request to return the watch. They sent me the necessary mailing information but implied that there could be issues that would prevent them from honoring their refund policy and that it was not guaranteed. This gave me pause, though it was right out of the box and onto a watch winder - which they knew.

    And so, I thought I might use the warranty company. However, I was responsible for shipping and the repairs could last up to 8 weeks.

    This seems like a bad deal all around.

    A really beautiful watch, and it keeps the time better than 2 other automatic watches that I own, and it's just as accurate as a more expensive montblanc that I have. My friends also love it.

    Extremely disappointed with the shoddy packaging of this expensive watch; there were three plastic "pillows" to protect the watch in transit--two of which were deflated. The watch had clearly been battered around in shipping. Also, the plastic protector on the crystal watch face had been removed and re-applied. The inside of the Victorinox factory watch box was stained with what appeared to be blue ink, or perhaps dye rubbed off from the watch band. The metal side of the watch was smudged.
    After reading reviews from other purchasers, I do believe I received a used and re-packaged watch. This transaction is a very poor business choice by someone at Amazon. Other reviews indicate I am not the first victim.

    On a positive note: the customer service representative who assisted me in returning the watch and crediting my account was extremely helpful, respectful, and positive to work with. She made the return painless and efficient. Because of the stellar customer service and full refund, I will again purchase--with caution--from Amazon.
