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 Victorinox Swiss Army Alliance fits nicely into my mighty (:-)) watch collection: A Bulova Precisionist Claremont, a vintage Longines gold dress watch and a Timex DataLink 150 (vintage too, I guess. And certified by NASA for space travel).

    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.

    The Victorinox Swiss Army Alliance #241474 is a great looking Swiss-made quartz watch. It is very nicely sized at 40mm--not too big or too small. The bezel is either chrome plated or highly polished to a flawless finish. The face is satin black with applied bright metal numbers (3, 6, & 9) and hour markers along with the Victorinox logo at 12 o'clock. The balance of the markings are cleanly printed in silver. There are luminous hands along with hour marker dots on the bezel. The band is a quality feeling matte-finish black leather with subtle dark grey stitching. To my eye, this design is close to perfect. It's dignified enough to dress up smartly, but not too fussy to be worn in more casual situations. Highly recommended.

    This watch looks great and is very comfortable. I wear it to work and casually on the weekend. The stainless steel gives the watch shine, and the black gives it subtle elegance.

    Excellent time piece for the money! I wanted a classic, simple looking watch without spending too much money and this watch is perfect! The face isn't too big and the stitching on the leather is top notch. It's comfortable and keeps excellent time so far. I'd recomend this for somebody who wants a quality time piece but doesn't want anything too flashy.

    I love the watch. It's beautiful and works well with both formal and casual clothes. The leather is soft.

    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.

    Update. Re-ordered from a different seller (Teelys), and happy with their product. Watch came in new condition / packaging.
    ----------

    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).

    I just received this watch. It is a great looking watch. It's design is simple and classic. The face is just the right size, Not huge like today's style but still big enough to satisfy the trend. the box it comes in gives it a very nice presentation as a gift. the leather band seems to be of good quality. Its a little stiff, but what leather product isn't at first until you break it in. do not hesitate to buy this. Actually please don't buy it. Then I won't see it often on other people's wrists! BTW does anyone know the specific battery that this watch uses? thanks.

    This is a very handsome watch with a simple, elegant, easy to read face. I've owned 4 other Swiss Army watches over the years, and all gave good service for about 5 years each before they had to be replaced, not bad considering their inexpensive cost, never more than $200. This new watch is a bit more expensive and looks it! I would not hesitate to buy it again. I have only 2 minor complaints: the date window is very tiny and thus difficult to read, and the watchband is very stiff, making it difficult to fit the end through the retainers once the band has been buckled
