In this piece, Victorinox Swiss Army combines its reinterpretation of the famous Officer’s watch with the Swiss Army knife. The Officer’s watch is part of an existing collection that gets its name from the knives that were given to the officers of the Swiss Army. The original guilloche used in 1961 can be seen in the center of the dial. The Officer’s watch is available in three versions that include mechanical, large, and chronograph versions.
The mechanical version of the Officer’s watch comes in a 40 millimeters dial that combines the guilloche design with modern look. The large version of this watch is also 40 millimeters in diameter but operates with a quartz movement. The chronograph version of the watch is the largest of the three and has a dial with a diameter of 42 millimeters and has a quartz movement.
The dials of the Officer’s timepieces is reminiscent of the the knife as it has an elongated shape. The brushed finish dial has luminescent markers and Arabic numerals for easy legibility. The hour and minute hands are also easily legible and slightly different with each version. Coming off the case is a leather strap that gives the watch a contemporary look. The band also comes in a metallic form that features a brushed and polished finish.
The Swiss Army knife that accompanies this Officer’s watch include two versions that have been specifically created for this occasion. One is a medium gray while the other one is an anthracite gray, both match the watch they come with. The knife includes a reamer, cap lifter, screwdriver, wire stripper, and key ring, with one version also having a large blade. The knife also includes an engraving panel on the back to engrave names or initials to personalize it.
