Product Description

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.

    The glow in the dark markings works well.
    Mr Li
    The watch is a little thicker than I anticipated, so if you have a small wrist, it may seem a little bulky.
    GA Boy
    It is one of the few watches you can feel comfortable with for real diving.

    I've had my Victorinox Swiss Army Dive Master Titanium for nearly two years and it still feels new every morning.
    It is a superbly designed, machined and matt honed watch and the price is surprisingly affordable for what one gets with this watch.
    The case is bulky but the Titaniuam material compensates for that.
    The bracelet is robust.
    The only very minor gripe I have with this watch is the quality of the diver's clasp: it does not close smoothly with a reassuring double snap.
    So it is not quite up there with clasp quality of Breitling and Omega.
    Other than that, I have no quibbles with this watch.
    I also own a Breitling Aerospace Chronograph Titanium which has COSC certification, but to be honest, this keeps as good time anyway as any COSC watch.
    So if you are looking for a robust yet reasonably lightweight activity/diver watch which oozes quality, look no further than the Victorinox Swiss Army Dive Master Titanium.

    For many things, the picture looks better than the thing. For this watch, the watch itself looks far better than the picture. A few quick points.
    1) It's big. If you have less-than-average size hands, it'll look too big.
    2) It's thick. If you want a thin watch, look elsewhere. (I do wish it were thinner.)
    3) It's heavy. 4.7ozs with 2 links removed. I would not want this watch in steel.
    4) It's frickin' titanium, people. Solid, end-to-end.

    PVD blows. I had a steel/PVD-coated Heuer. After a few years, it scratched-off and looked CRAPPY! This watch has a nice, "Fine-brushed" finish. (It looks much better if you have the patience/resources to polish-out the brushed finish; a Dremel will do.) When PVD chips-out, you have no such options, and your watch will look like crap.

    Titanium alloy is harder than stainless steel, so it will scratch less. PVD usually involves a form of titanium, so it isn't more-or-less hard, but again, when it eventually scratches/chips-out -- and it will -- you can't "fix" PVD. The color of titanium (a sort of light yellow/gray/brown) is quite lovely.

    Finally, I don't need to calculate "time-to-mark" on my yacht, or airspeed/arrival time of my private plane too often, so I don't need an 18-function wrist-based chronometer. I am a diver, but I don't even need a dive watch for that. (Hello, application-specific computers for everything nowadays.) I do, however, frequently need to cram a quarter in a slot and remember when the meter maid is going to ticket me. A rotating bezel is perfect for that.

    Very, very pleased with it.

    Finally, some other reviewer suggests it "doesn't polish as well as stainless steel." I don't know quite what that means. It doesn't polish "as easily?" That's true. (It's a harder material, and therefore harder to machine and polish.) It can't be "as shiny?" That's false. It's not colorless? That's true.

    I had my Victorinox for 12 months and can share a fair review.
    Other than the clasp not having a "positive" lock, it is a great watch. Looks more expensive that it is, it is easy to see the time. I play golf with it, the weight does not bother me, it is titanium and 1/3 compared to a steel watch. The dull finish is awesome, I think it looks better now that when it was new.

    I received this watch yesterday. I did not expect it is so heavy. I used to have a Seiko Kinetic Titanium and this one is a lot more heavy. It takes me a while to get used to the weight. I am glad to get the titanium instead of steel version. I cannot imagine how heavy the steel one would weigh.
    I am quite satisfied with the watch. It is very sturdy and well built. The glow in the dark markings works well.
    Some minor complaints:
    - the rotating bezel has some semi-sharp corner where the digit marking is. It will be nice if they could smooth it out.
    - the date window with the magnify glass is kind of hard to see if you view it at an angle.
    Overall it is a very good value watch.

    Verified Purchase
    totally awesome! better than the pictures and better than the reviews would suggest.

    it is big, but not ridiculously so. the titanium reduces weight that a gunmetal watch would otherwise have. the luminous markings, although they are not tritium, continue to emit light for upwards of 10 hours.

    the watch is elegant, simple, understated and utilitariian.

    the only drawback might be it's thickness. at 12- 14 mm (depending which stats you look at) it is chunky. but again, not ridiculously so.

    i am delighted about this watch and hIghly recommend it.
