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.
Our Victorinox Swiss Army timepieces are designed to optimize their usefulness. Functionality ranges from easy-to-read dial designs to sophisticated professional functions. Every design detail is purpose-based. Functions are never add-ons or embellishments. The goal is to create watches that are timeless.
Victorinox Swiss Army constantly enhances its timepiece lines with new design elements and innovative functions while seeking creative ways of upgrading existing components to enhance their capabilities.
Victorinox Swiss Army timepieces are designed and manufactured with the same rigorous attention to quality as the brand’s legendary Pocket Tools. They also meet the highest standards of the Swiss watchmaking industry. The quality controls and testing that every timepiece undergoes (material, movement, assembly, finishing, etc.) allow Victorinox Swiss Army to offer a three-year limited warranty.
The Original Swiss Army Knife is one of the world’s most functional pieces of design. Victorinox Swiss Army timepieces share this icon’s spirit and heritage. They are multifunctional precision instruments engineered to last, yet also timeless and contemporary in design.

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.Read more ›
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...
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!
