Victorinox Watch – For Men And Women – Reviews

Victorinox Watch

Hey In this article we will look at the history of the Victorinox watch brand and review two watches for men and two watches for women. Enjoy!

History

Victorinox watch
Karl Elsener – Knifemaker and founder of Victorinox.

 

Victorinox is a Swiss brand, that makes knives and luxury watches. As most Swiss brands they are also known for their quality products. It seems to me that only the best is good enough for them.

Victorinox founded their company in 1884, it was just a small workshop then. Later they began to deliver knives to the Swiss army. They almost went out of business when another company could deliver knives at a lower price.

Victorinox Then in 1897 got a patent on *Schweizer Offiziers- und Sportmesser* which is the Original Swiss Army Knife. This knife saved them from going under. Today this knife is iconic.

The founder named the company Victoria in 1909 in honor of his mother who passed away that year. In 1921 It was rebranded to Victorinox, which is a mix of Victoria and inox. (Inox means stainless steel)

They did not go into the watchmaking business until 1989 under the brand name Swiss army. They are well-known for the quality of their knives and luckily for us, they passed on that quality to their watches.

When I think about quality watches, most of them are Swiss, So to come in the watchmaking game so late, In Switzerland, is HARD, with great competitors like Rolex and Omega, Victorinox had to bring their A-game. I believe that Victorinox nailed it, with their own unique designs and competitive prices and truly solid build watches.

Victorinox Women’s Quartz Watch With Silver 241768

Victorinox watch

This is a Quartz Field watch. It has a Japanese movement. If you’re thinking, why would they use Japanese movements in a Swiss watch? There is a good reason for that. Seiko, a Japanese company made the very first Quartz watch and their quartz movements are some of the best you can get. So most Quartz watches have Japanese movements because they want to make quality watches.

This is made of stainless steel and it has Superluminova which means it glows in the dark. This watch is not what I would call feminine even tho it is for women, it is more the size that makes it for women, I have also read that men with small wrists are buying this. It is water-resistant to 200m or 660ft, so you don’t have to take it off when you go for a swim. The case diameter is 37 millimeters and the case thickness is 15 millimeters. It has a 3-year warranty but will probably last you a lifetime.

If you are a couple that likes to match, this next one is for the man.

 

 

Victorinox Swiss Army Men’s I.N.O.X. Watch

Victorinox watch

This watch looks almost the same as the one above for women, only bigger. If you and your Lady want to match you can get this in black, there are 12 different colors/versions of this, some of them are even made from Titanium.

If you have read my review on Dive watches, I talked about I.N.O.X professional diver. This is the same watch without the bezel. The bezel is a big part of what makes it a dive watch.

I.N.O.X. collections are made to endure a lot more than they need to, they put this watch through 130 test to show how robust it is. some of the test was a drop from 10meters and they ran over this with a 64-ton tank, they dived to 200meter, and so on. They proved that It is extremely hard to break this thing.

Just as the one for women, this has a superluminova, and water-resistant to 200m or 660ft. This is a lot bigger tho, with a case diameter with 43millimeter and case thickness is 14 millimeters. If you would like a smaller watch, The one called I.N.O.X. V has a case diameter of 37millimeters. This is also a Quartz with Japanese movements.

I must say that the I.N.O.X. collection is probably one of my favorite watches of all time.

Is there an I.N.O.X. for women too?

 

 

Victorinox Swiss Army Women’s I.N.O.X. Stainless Steel Swiss-Quartz Rubber Strap.

Victorinox watch

There is not really much more to say about this watch. It is an I.N.O.X. So it is pretty much the same as the one I talked about before. The case diameter is 37 millimeter so it is smaller. It also looks very good and is more feminine. This comes with a bezel cover, so if you should use it while doing something that could make scratches, put it on to protect it, and take it off when you want to show off how beautiful it is.

There is also a luxury version of this. It is Gold plated and very pink. It does not come with a cover so this is more for looking pretty. But still very durable, it is an I.N.O.X. after all

Victorinox Swiss Army. Men’s Original Swiss Quartz Watch with Nylon Strap

Victorinox watch

This is a quartz Pilot watch, it comes in 4 different colors. Black, Green, Purple, Beige. This is by far the cheapest watch I have talked about here. The case diameter is only 38 millimeter and the case thickness is only 9,5 millimeters. So it is small and lite.

Its is kinda hard to see in this picture but if you look closely it is some beautiful details here, in the face and on the bezel.

It comes with a nylon strap, and it is waterproof to 100m or 330ft. So it is suitable for swimming but not diving. It has lume on the hands. This watch is priced somewhere between $60 to $80 so for that price range it is hard to find something better.

Sooo…

I hope you liked this post, and please leave a comment below. Come back to visit us again for more info and reviews. I am planning to write a review on dress watches soon and I will talk about one watch from the Victorinox Alliance collection there, which is beautiful. So stay tuned. Have a nice day!

  1. These are all attractive watches that seem to be of high quality. They’re more expensive than the $20 or so that many watches cost. However, the higher price is worth it because they last a lot longer. If you’re regularly spending $20 for a new watch because they keep breaking, it soon adds up. 

  2. I love how the watches spell sophistication and class. The Victorinox Women’s watch has a really great look to it unlike the obvious feminine watches. The water resistant feature is just something I would really go for. The 3 year warranty says a lot about the brand and how sure they are that it can surpass those years in their functionality. Thank you for the great history of the Vitrorinix Brand. These are great Suggestions. 

  3. Wow, great article!! 

    Victorinox is one of the best brands on the market.I didn’t have an idea about the history of Victorinox. I got a lot of valuable info on your article. now I have an idea about the quality and background of Victorinox.

    Swiss Army Men’s I.N.O.X. and Women’s Quartz Watch with Silver watches will be suitable for me and my girlfriend.

    Thanks for sharing the links to buy. I will buy it soon.

  4. These watches exude quality. Nice to know that this company was responsible for the famous Swiss Army Knife. I noticed these designs are not flashy but have subdued appearances. I think if one wants to wear a high quality watch without attracting attention that a Rolex does, this is it. And at a much lower price too! 

    It was interesting to see these watches available in a variety of colors as well as sizes for men and women. 

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Great review! I didn’t really know that Voctorinox was a mixture of names! 🙂

    I honestly didn’t know they made watches either. And yes, the Swiss usually do everything of quality.

    I really liked the watch that can be exchanged with your wife, and that it is also robust, since I work on a drilling rig and we cannot use it, and in those days I can leave it to my wife to use it. And yes … in this job we must be connected in some way!

    So we would definitely go on the INOX line!

    That watch comes with a rubber strap, right?

    Well, thanks to this review I will begin to investigate more the Victorinox brand for watches! Thank you very much for showing us these products.

    Regards

  6. Beautiful watches and somehow they look pretty much the same I suppose that is because they are all victorinox watches yet have a different beauty everyone of them. I hope I’ll be able to get this for myself for my next birthday I’ve had so much of fake watches that never last long even though they are quite cheap, I’m sure the prices of these Swiss watches assures that great value and quality has been input in them. They look real perfect thank you.

  7. I actually never knew the company who makes the Swiss Army Knife also created watches. The quality and timelessness of the Swiss Army Knife gives testament to the quality one could expect in their watches. This in itself is a huge consideration point for me. 

    My skin is super sensitive to most metals. The fact that the Victorinox watches are made with titanium is perfect for me. I am impressed with the color selections as well. I am notorious for damaging electronics with water so the watches being waterproof is excellent! So far I am extremely impressed with the Victorinox watch. Thanks so much for the details and information!

  8. Thanks for providing us with the historical background of the victorinox watch and its founders it has really be fun because I have enjoyed the story its like I was reading an interesting novel and I have fell in love with that of pink color so am looking forward to buying it for my wife thanks very much 

  9. Great review—very informative.  I didn’t know that the Swiss Army Knife made watches.  The quality seems to be impressive.  When I need a good quality watch without mortgaging the house, I’ll know what direction to head in. They are not very dressy yet they are attractive.

    Many thanks for this information!

  10. Hi Simon

    That’s a great review post- and I really like your business name and domain.

    I like the history that you have given us about the origin of Victorinox and their Swiss army brand. I got inspired by the statement that the founder, Karl Elsner, began in a small workshop. That’s pretty where I am with my business and so I got inspired.

    About the watches I’ve liked their price the most. For a brand that’s in the luxurious category, one can safely sayvtheirbprices are fair- of course, the model and make being considered.

  11. Quite some information about the founder of this brand there. I have heard about the swiss knife is some other article and knowing it came from the same company with these watches is amazing. There are those who go for flashy and those who apprechiate quality. For me, the quality will always be a priority no matter the cost and this watches being unisex with very cool colors is just what anyone would asks for. Best regards.

  12. Hi! I have been looking for a high quality watch so Victorinox Swiss Army is one of the brands I’m interested in. But I’m also interested in something affordable. My budget is not so big. So Men’s Original Swiss Quartz Watch with Nylon Strap seems to be the one for me. Thank you very much for this review.

  13. I really like this brand. And I absolutely loved the Victorinox Women’s Quartz Watch With Silver 241768. I know that my boyfriend also likes Victorinox very much so I think I’ll buy the men’s version for him to as a present.

    It was cool to read how Victorinox started. I didn’t know they were also almost knocked out of business at one point back in their beginnings.

  14. This is an amazing review on Victorinox Watch; especially its history and the meaning of this brand. It seems to be a great Watch with a high quality and affordable price. I have also read your review on Dive watches,and the way you have described the ‘I.N.O.X’ -So I may go for Victorinox Swiss Army Women’s for my lady and go for I.N.O.X. Stainless Steel Swiss-Quartz Rubber Strap.As I liked its bezel cover as well. Thanks

  15. I have been looking for a quality watch (something that will last) for my hubby as a Christmas gift. The black Victorinox Swiss Army watch looks perfect. It is more casual for every day. I clicked the link to see the details and I love it. I also see there are lots of great reviews at Amazon which is important to me. Thank you for all the ideas. I think my hubby will like this one.

  16. These are legendary watches.  Not everyone can afford to wear them.  It’s a life long brand with a reputation of good quality.  They are watches for men and women with style.  I like watches, not just any, but a good brand.  Wearing a Victorinox Watch speaks volumes about the person.  Good review choice.

  17. Hello Simon.

    It always amazed me to read that a product had been made for the Swiss army. It’s a very small country that has always been neutral, which is why I wonder why they were keeping an army?

    That said you have a website about watches that is very interesting to read because you give us very relevant information as your explanation why a Swiss watch has a Japanese Quartz movement. 

    I have a Bering Ceramic watch and I like beautiful watches and I can not wait to read what you have to say about the Victorinox Alliance Collection watch.

  18. Nice to read a little history about a brand that has been appreciated by so many over the decades including myself.

    The Swiss Army knife  has been a favorite of mine since I was in my 20’s and I always have one in my pocket especially when hiking.

    Except that they are a little pricy for my pocket book, I have always admired the workmanship/quality of the Victorinox watches. They really are a classic.
