Though synonymous now with high quality timepiece, it wasn't till 1989 that Victorinox Swiss Army formally launched its timepiece collection with the Original Watch. In marking the model's notable standing within Victorinox's nearly 130 years of history, the company recently launched the Victorinox Swiss Army - Original Chronograph Limited Edition Watch.
Handsomely constructed in dark gunmetal grey, the watch features a stainless steel screwed-in case back, scratch resistant mineral glass, and an aluminum bezel. Driven by a Swiss-made ETA G10-211 quartz chronograph movement, the 40 mm dial face includes luminescent index and hands, with a seconds hand in emergency orange. Three separate sub-dials, along with a date calendar window, complete the chronograph design.
Comes with a genuine leather strap and a protective hood, the watch is waterproof up to 100 meter, or 330 feet. Packaged in a special display case, the Victorinox Swiss Army Original Chronograph LE Watch will be a limited issue of 1989 numbered units only. Available now for $495 USD at Victorinox Swiss Army retail locations worldwide and its online store.
