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.

Many things to like about this watch:
Size is just right
It looks smashing; classic look that goes well with both jeans and a suit
The strap is very nice
It has got a sapphire crystal
Yes, it comes with a Swiss quartz movement, not automatic or manual. And it is not an IWC - but it shares some of that brand's simple and classic lines, and at around 300 USD it is practically free in comparison.
The only thing I do not like about it is the quality of the luminous display. Do not expect to keep track of time when in bed at night.
However, the luminousity of the second measures is 99% non-existent. And the second hand does not _quite_ align with the second marks, but it's only noticeable if you really look for it.
I would buy this brand again.
Beautiful watch - good size (not too big or small).
Very disappointed with the seller (Watch Planet). The watch received was clearly a return and had it been discounted / labeled accordingly (like a return and/or warehouse deal as an example) I'd understand and perhaps made a different decision.
Here is what I found when I opened it;
* Scratch at the bottom of the watch (steel swirl scratch).
* Scratch on the leather band (by the metal buckle/hook).
* No protective peel stickers on either the face or the bottom.
* Box is a small carton with the logo vs. the nice large box with velvet like lining in the picture (standard that you'd see in stores as an example). This matters (in my opinion if you're giving this as a gift).
