Victorinox Swiss Army wristwatches are among the most popular watch brands for men and women today. The brand’s no-frills military inspired designs, premium -grade stainless steel construction, quality Swiss craftsmanship, not to mention affordability have made them leaders in watch industry since their inception in 1989.
Swiss Army’s origins started with surgical grade knives in 1884, when the brand was founded by Karl Eisener, who opened a cutlery shop in Ibach-Schwyz, Switzerland. By 1891, Eisener was commissioned by the Swiss Army to produce pocket knives for soldiers. Six years later, the “Swiss Officer’s Knife” and “Sport Knife” were legally registered to the brand.
In 1921, Eisener coined the company name Victorinox in honor of his late mother Victoria and the term “inox,” an abbreviation for the French word for rust-resistant steel “inoxydable.” In later years, the company flourished throughout Europe and became globally popular after World War II.
The brand’s next progression was the introduction of timepieces in the late 1980s. Utilizing the quality surgical grade stainless steel they were renowned for with their knives, Victorinox introduced watches built to withstand the rigors of active living, featuring durable nylon straps, highly legible dials and water resistance… at a relatively inexpensive price.
For over 25 years, Victorinox Swiss Army watches have been widely popular in the United States and all around the globe. The quality craftsmanship shows in every detail from the high quality cases and anti-reflective sapphire crystals on the outside to the premium ETA Swiss-made movements on the inside. ETA is the highly-regarded Swiss watch manufacturing company that produces movements for Omega, Patek Philippe, Tudor and Swatch watch brands.
