The Victorinox Swiss Army brand started out in 1884 as Karl Elsener’s cutler shop, where he designed and pioneered the world-famous Swiss Army knife for the country’s armed forces. A hundred years hence, the brand has not lost ties with its army origins, and the brown and green colors of the Swiss Army still crop up in many of its designs. The Victorinox Infantry Vintage mechanical watch, sports not only these emblematic shades but also the rugged sophistication and reliability of the military. The solid make of the Swiss watch encloses a mechanical self-winding movement that is viewable through the clear exhibition case back of the piece. The distinctive green dial shows a day calendar on the 12th hour, a date calendar on the 3rd and alternately sized numeral indicators on the multi-textured face of the watch. An inner circle of smaller numerals counts the hours in 24-hour format. In general, the watch is a picture of rugged and durable device in a beautifully remarkable package.
