Being a man of style, you can never go wrong with a Victorinox Swiss Army watch. Manufactured and sold by Victorinox, the original Swiss Army Knife maker, Victorinox Swiss Army watches are proud to have their place in the tradition of a family business established at Ibach, Switzerland, 130 years ago. Made from high quality materials, they are famous for being stylish, durable, multifunctional, and most of all for being technically superior compared to other brands. These timepieces are genuine precision instruments that will always withstand the passage of time.
One of their latest model is the I.N.O.X., presented to commemorate the 130th anniversary of its parent company in style. This watch whose name comes from the French word meaning stainless steel, has a sharp, versatile design that is so strong it defies the imagination. Designed to withstand unusual stress, the I.N.O.X. has passed a battery of 130 strength tests which clearly shows a level of robustness never before achieved in watchmaking. This watch is capable of resisting 8 tons compression under a hydraulic press; salt spray corrosion or chemical attacks by all kinds of fuels, oils, solvents, cleaning products including sulfuric and nitric acid solution; a drop from a 3-floor building with an impact speed of 50 km/hour; exposure to a flame at a distance of 5 mm for more than a minute; glacial cold; and extreme conditions at a stratospheric altitude of 21,300 meters.
Aside from its robustness and elegant design, the I.N.O.X. boasts of features like the Swiss-made Ronda 715 movement; reinforced stainless steel case; scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with triple anti-reflection treatment; removable black silicone and nylon bumper; screwed-on stainless steel caseback; and water resistant to 200 meters (20 ATM/660 feet). It has a black dial, black rubber strap; khaki green dial and rubber strap; navy blue dial and rubber strap; stamped indexes and luminescent hour markers and minute hands; military time on the flange; and date window at 4:30.
