Victorinox Vintage Officer's Chrono
On a recent trip to Switzerland in pursuit of hidden Ferrari treasure, I wandered into a small but exclusive shop in Geneva well known for its taste in timepieces. There amid fabulous Breitling's, Patek Philippe's, and Audemars Piguet's, each more flamboyant than the next, my eye was drawn to these understated but undeniably handsome military-style watches by Victorinox.
As supplier to the Swiss Army since 1891, Victorinox enjoys a heritage that's rich in tradition and quality — surely one of the most respected brands in Europe, and throughout the world. The Vintage Collection represents Victorinox's salute to WWII. All are 100% Swiss made in Bonfol, in the heart of Switzerland's Jura watch-making region, and utilize Victorinox finest Swiss-quartz movements. The Officer's Chrono sports a large, 44mm dial in either Black or Olive in a brushed and polished, dual-finish stainless case. Three subdials allow pinpoint timing to 1/10 of a second. Luminous hands and hour markers glow like plutonium after dusk, letting you execute missions with military precision on moonless nights! All models depth-rated to 100 meters (330'), with genuine leather padded straps. Choose Black or Olive dial when ordering Officer's Chrono.
