Victorinox Swiss Army

New Timepiece from Victorinox Swiss Army:

by Time&Style Staff

We love when watches go back in time to take inspiration. For instance: the new Infantry Vintage Mechanical Chronograph is trimmer in case size than its
predecessors. The look is simpler but refined: the tone-on-tone colour block combinations set it apart. So, too, does its dial presentation: three bold hands and three circles of indicators — 24-hour military markers in the middle, oversized Arabic hours around them, and a 60-minute/second track with 5-second intervals at the dial periphery.

It’s sleek, powerful, and technologically advanced. What else could you ask for?

Victorinox Swiss Army Original

by Time&Style Staff

The ‘Original’ is a modern day redesign by Victorinox of their original Swiss Army watch. First released in 1989, the earliest Swiss Army model has since became something of an icon because of its practicality.

The ‘Original’ offers a revamped dial with subtle design touches, like the logo and model name on the dial matching the colour of the lower plate. Brushed metal and amplified numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock give the masculine watch a sportier edge. There will be four colours available when it’s released in the Fall – grey, black, beige and khaki green. A price is not determined in dollar value yet, but will sell for 273 Swiss Francs.

Victorinox Swiss Army Officer’s Chrono

by Time&Style Staff

This is a sportier variation of the classic Officer’s collection from Victorinox, with a wide-open three-face dial and rounded stainless steel case. It’s impossible to lose time with its 1/10th of a second, small second, and 30-minute timekeepers located at the two, six, and 10 respectively. Those are also accented by the date window, located at the four. The watch is available in June, with options of black or silver dial, and depending on your choice of dial, the strap can be black rubber or stainless steel.

by Time&Style Staff

Victorinox Swiss Army is presenting another ultra-rugged, highly functional timepiece – the Dive Master 500 Gunmetal Chrono. The timepiece can be submerged as deep as 500 metres (hence the “500” in its name). This chrono version is in keeping with the Swiss-made quartz movement – it’s cased inside a 43 mm stainless steel case with a sleek gunmetal coating. Also include is the triple-coated anti-reflective sapphire crystal cover and black strap for good measure. The Dive Master 500 Gunmetal Chrono will be available starting in June.

You already know about Charvet shirts, you’ve gone to the trouble of finding the right shoes to go with a tux, and you know better than to wear a ski jacket with a suit or to tuck a man bag under your arm. But unless you have three different watches—or more specifically, at least one watch from each of three different categories—you cannot be said to have yet mastered the art of the wardrobe. Allow us to make a few suggestions to set you on the path to full sartorial enlightenment, or at least get you to dinner on time.
