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 wanted a watch for myself that I could see without glasses, and I wanted the day and date as well. This watch has those features. It is a large men's watch (44mm), the dial is Infantry Green, which is more like a soft black shade, with a beautiful thick, dark brown, leather band. I have never before worn a watch like this (large, men's, leather band), so it took a few days to get used to it. It's not that it's too heavy or thick, just different for me. The watch looks exactly as described and I can see the time without glasses, but the day and date elude me. With glasses I can see both day and date in a lighted area, but not otherwise. The one disappointment is the luminosity of the watch, as another reviewer stated; It is poor in that area. However, due to the size of the numbers and hands, I can still see the time, but in total darkness (I tried it in the closet) the luminosity was a bust...barely visible then faded. It was not difficult to set the time, day or date, and it has kept perfect time thus far and feels well made. This model has been around since I believe 2004 and has unfortunately been discontinued. All and all, I am well pleased with the quality of the entire watch and I like it. I would definitely have no problem with purchasing a Victorinox Swiss product in the future, and I would purchase this one again. I rated it 4 stars because of poor luminosity.

    3/3/2016 UPDATE: A few words about the luminosity issue. My husband said maybe the watch needed to be placed under a very bright light to kick start the luminous feature. So, I held it very close to the halogen light on the table, just for a few minutes, then we turned out the lights in the room and the watch practically lit up the room. I was thrilled and thought that must be what it needed.

    After wearing for many months daily I can say it's a great watch except for one minor downfall. It keeps time great, so far has been rugged in extreme heat, extreme cold, and wet conditions. The ONLY negative remark I can provide that lost it a star was the luminescence of the dial is very sub-par. If you're in the dark you're lucky if you see anything. If you immediately came out of lots of direct sunlight it glows great for a short while. Otherwise good luck reading the time in the dark. However that's my only disappointment which I would have expected better from Victorinox. Other than that, great watch!

    I have owned several Victorinox watches and have always been impressed with the quality of the luminous paint used. Even my $60 Garrison watch glows all night. The paint on this watch was very disappointing, though. It glowed for about 2 hours before becoming completely dark. I do like the look and feel of the watch-- it is very stylish. I also like the fact that the band is solid leather and not padded.

    This watch, what can I say?

    I loved this watch.

    I say loved because in 2011 while coming back from a trip it disappeared while moving through the metal detector at some random airport.

    I traveled a lot during that time for work for training sessions and was in and out of airports on a weekly basis.

    I grew use to taking off my watch and to save time, I'd toss my belonging into my laptop bag and then move away from the detector and get 'dressed' again...

    Anywhooo...

    That watch was the perfect blend of watch enough ruggedness and sophistication that people always noticed the watch and commented on it.

    The ware of the watch was fantastic.

    I never had an issue with the watch and time.

    The weight of the watch felt perfect and you knew when you had it on, I ironic because I knew I did not have it on after I walked away from the screening area!

    This watch is a must have for men.

    Actually I've been hinting to my Better Half that I will be buying another one.

    She thinks me to be crazy because I have too many watches now...but it's like your first car...you never forget a great watch!

    The watch is attractive, keeps excellent time, and I wear it most of the time. I purchased it because I wanted the DAY-date function. It is as described in the Amazon write-up. The only reason it is slightly downgraded to 4 stars is that it is thicker than I envisioned. To be fair, the correct thickness was as advertized.
