The Most Swiss of Watches

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

It’s one of unique brands that can rub off to its other product lines. The Swiss Army pocket knife is an iconic symbol of efficiency, quality Swiss manufacturing, and the benchmark that all other pocket knives are measured against. In a brilliant move by the company, it expanded into timepieces, a selection of watches that represent the Swiss brand’s value propositions. When you buy a Swiss Army watch, you get the same reliability and endurance the pocket knife is known for. Whether it is the I.N.O.X., Chrono Classic, Maverick, or Alpnach, the Swiss Army watch is guaranteed to stand for the perfect fusion of performance and timeless allure. Like the pocket knife that made the brand famous, the watches pass through 100 quality control tests.

I.N.O.X isn’t a watch brand?

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

How strong is an I.N.O.X. watch? Victorinox-Swiss Army CEO Alexander M. Bennouna can give you an idea: “We looked at what is the heaviest engine around us and realized that it’s a 64 ton Leopard tank. We said let’s drive over the watch,” he was quoted in an interview at the recent Baselworld event. We assume the watch survived. I.N.O.X. is said to be super strong that it took the company three years to develop it because the watch underwent 130 strength tests under extreme conditions, the Leopard tank included. Bennouna said I.N.O.X is different because it focuses on quality and durability, rather than luxury and heritage that other top watch brands specialize on. “We are not a watch brand but a Swiss brand making watches.” Perhaps, I.N.O.X. is the very embodiment of the CEO’s point.

For Rugged Guys Who Mean Business

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

Whether we like it or not, we get judged by people through our fashion choices. Darline Price of Well Said, Inc., in an interview with Business Insider, said that even though what you wear defines you and determines your value as a person, it significantly influences how people see you and respond to you. This is why fashion selection and in this case, watch selection. We should choose wisely. If you are the kind of that rugged guy that values functionality, durability and accuracy most, you might not choose models that are all to flashy. But you can't wear big bulging wristwatches reminiscent of kits from 80s spy movies in business meetings. What you want is some middle type watch that is rugged and functional but also means business just like you. The first collection you should scout for this is Swiss Army Business Watches. My favorite in this line is the Chrono Classic with Chronograph. It is the perfect middling watch for durability and business style.

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

The Swiss Army brand is one of the world's most admired and valued signatures, that collecting its watches make a good investment, if not for passion.

Swiss Army Watches

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Swiss Army (38)

When it comes to watches and timepieces, it is hard to think of the Swiss to fall second to any other makers. Armed with rich tradition and the deep sense and yearning to innovate, the Swiss had made a name for themselves as one, if not the, best watchmakers and designers in the whole world. One brand though didn’t start out to be a watchmaking company. It, though, scratched the world’s history deep when it invented a revolutionary tool – the Swiss Army Knife. Armed with the same Swiss heritage and drive to create wonderful inventions for the world, this invention rolled out by storm – offering a ton of functionality that fits in one’s pocket. This same drive and Swiss-inspired innovation led the company to also create watches that are both durable and accurate without compromising look. This makes every new Swiss Army model coming out worth checking out.

What else can it be but Swiss?

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:30:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

What can be more Swiss than the Swiss Army knife? At the least, the name is one of the most iconic Swiss brands along with Swiss cheese and the Alps. In fact, Swiss Army now manufactures its line of luxury watches and you guess it, they’re genuine Swiss watches. But what makes a product Swiss in this age of global supply chains? According to Swiss law, a watch can be called Swiss made if its movement is manufactured in Switzerland. Likewise, the watch should be cased up in the country and the final inspection is done in Switzerland. Furthermore, the movement—a conflagration of tiny parts—itself should be assembled and inspected in Switzerland. Likewise, the Swiss manufacture cost should be at least 50% of the total cost. You don’t have to know all these requirements though. When you buy a Swiss Army watch, you know it’s Swiss.

Nothing beats the original

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

If it doesn’t say it’s Victorinox, it’s not the Original Swiss Army knife. The original red pocket knife has become an icon for outdoor adventure for both leisure and professional explorers. The idea to combine an all-purpose small knife with a can opener, screwdriver, bottle opener, wire stripper, and reamer gave birth to modern time’s biggest small wonder and spawned more versions that feature more implements. Not the least, copycats flooded the market trying but failing to emulate the durability and seamless functionality of this red reliable piece of workmanship. Today, the Original Swiss Army knife is used in as varied environments as in travel tours, scientific explorations, army campaigns, and camping. In the age when tech gadgets come and go as day and night, it feels good to have an original gadget that stands the measure of time.

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

Original is (Not) Overrated

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

In a world full of reproductions, watered-down visions, and genuine fakes, being original is a scarcity. Yes, originality takes time, thought and effort; but it is more satisfying to be original because of the sense of accomplishment you get from it. Being original is being unique, the only one of its kind. Whether it is true with jewelries, people, or DVDs, the original is always so much more vivid, more alive than any reproductions you will ever see. So why not go with the original?
Victorinox Swiss Army, maker of the Original Swiss Army Knife, has always been a lover of originals. In fact, in 1989 it released a timepiece called the “Original,” which is still made and sold today with a newer, updated version. Being Swiss Army’s new entry level offering, the Original offers its wearer a brushed aluminum bezel for a trendy touch. The secondhand is adorned with a delicate touch of orange, with the strap being a stylish two-piece leather or three-piece strap, for a completely new look. Not bad for being Original.

Travel with Swiss Army

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

Anyone can travel and should travel. Traveling, jolts us awake. For most, traveling is a dream that comes true once a year for the annual vacation. For some, travel is a sweet plan for retirement on a boat, with a backpack or by train. And for a few, travel is an all-consuming passion. You might be traveling to visit family or friends, for work, because you’re relocating, volunteering, sight-seeing or to simply relax on a beach somewhere to get away from it all. But there is a broader question: as a human, why do we travel in the first place? There are a million reasons why people travel: to challenge oneself, to enjoy new experiences, to find oneself, to learn a new language, to experience new cultures, to simply have fun, to see new things, or to basically just eat new food – but people generally travel because of fear. Fear makes travel so enlivening and revelatory. You're perpetually off-balance and on guard. After a while one yearns for the mindlessness of familiar routines. And when you do return home, old pleasures are much the sweeter for having been suspended. One can't think of a better vaccine against dogmatism or a quicker cure for self-satisfaction. As we struggle to reconcile what we're experiencing with what we take for granted, we strip away what's arbitrary in cultural practice and approach what is universal. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. Traveling is an easy way of surrounding ourselves, as in childhood, with what we cannot understand. In other words, we travel because we want to. 
Yes, traveling is a way to reverse time, to a small extent, and make a day last a year; we live without a past or future, for a moment at least, and are ourselves up for grabs and open to interpretation.  But that does not mean that we should forget all about time while traveling, right? When you travel a lot, particularly on business you need some form of reliable alarm. Maybe you have a flight to catch, a journey to take or an important meeting to get to. Travel clocks are usually handy for these occasions. They are usually used as a gadget to wake you up from a perfect 'vacation' slumber. If kept under pillow, it will vibrate to wake you up. When you feel like getting on an early morning bus, an alarm clock helps a lot. When you feel like seeing a sunrise, an alarm clock helps a lot. If you’ve got jet lag you know there is a big risk of you over sleeping so you need something to wake you up. When you feel like getting away from people who tell you what and how to spend your holidays then an alarm clock helps a lot as they still sleep. Quite frankly, you can never always rely on someone coming to wake you up, even automated ones have a tendency to go astray. 
Taking into account the above premises, it is but natural that Victorinox Swiss Army, a leader in quality, reliability, functionality, innovation and iconic design, would gravitate towards the need to always be on time while traveling. In fact, Victorinox Swiss Army has long embraced the concept to create products designed and built to accompany us through life’s journeys. The requirements of mobility have driven Victorinox Swiss Army’s product designs for more than a century: since 1891, when the Original Swiss Army Knife emerged from Karl Elsener’s cutlery workshop to meet the needs of the soldier in the field; since 1989, when the first Victorinox timepieces combined classic styling with durability equal to the most demanding environments – from the summit to the sea floor. Together with Victorinox Swiss Army’s rugged travel gear, their functional, fashionable men's wear and their distinctive fragrances, these products have taken the Victorinox reputation for innovation and quality and subjected it, successfully, to the tests of trips for business and backpacking, not to mention expeditions to the Amazon Rain Forest, Mt. Everest, the North Pole, even the Moon. Quality. Reliability. Functionality. Innovation. Iconic design. The spirit of the Original Swiss Army Knife is alive and well. Take the spirit with you with Victorinox Swiss Army Travel Alarm 2010 Road Tour Limited Edition. The Victorinox Swiss Army Travel Alarm 2010 Road Tour Limited Edition has a silver dial, black bezel and Ice PVD bracelet, 54 mm in diameter with quartz movement. 
With Victorinox Swiss Army Travel Alarm 2010 Road Tour Limited Edition, the more you travel, the further you go, the more you’ll be glad you did.
