Swiss Army Watches Are So Precise!

Jan 12, 2008
The Swiss have always been known for mechanical precision. Their timepieces are no exception. But even before they introduced Swiss Army watches, Victorinox was already well-known for another product: the Swiss Army knife. This item was introduced in 1897.

Victory for Victorinox

Karl Elsener was the founder of Victorinox. He wanted to manufacture a product that would be in great demand. He wanted not only to profit from manufacturing this product, he also wanted to give jobs to the Swiss citizenry. The Swiss Army knife then became famous all over the world. Since the time of Lyndon Johnson, Presidents of the United States have gifted their guests with Swiss Army knives.

When the Swiss Army knife reached the zenith of its popularity, Elsener turned Victorinox to manufacturing a better wrist watch. The result is Swiss Army watches that are as popular as Swiss Army knives. Over time, styles have evolved and various models have been added to the line of Swiss Army watches. The performance of Swiss Army watches is excellent. This has made the brand a recognizable mark of quality all over the world. And they look good too!

Watch It!

But Swiss Army watches bear no relation to Swiss Army knives except in name and quality of build. What is so great about them you ask? Well, the "Vivante" collection for ladies is aesthetically attractive. It does not matter whether they are on a wrist or not. These are striking pieces. You can even choose between a steel or leather band. Dials are made of mother-of-pearl and some the pricier models are even adorned with diamonds.

If you are a businessman, you need a model for ostentatious display. Your clients and the people you do business with will look at you in a different light with the "Ambassador" line. If sports watches are more your thing, check out the "Active" line. Some of the "Active" watches are functional underwater up to 330 feet. Want something unique and monstrously extravagant? Extra-special is the best way to describe the Legacy 2006 Reserve de Marche Platine. This fabulous timepiece can be yours for a mere $20,000. There will only ever be 60 of these watches.

When it comes to Swiss Army watches, there is something for everyone. And every Swiss Army watch comes with a three year warranty. As if you needed more incentive to consider buying one. Remember, you are not just buying any old watch, you are buying a quality product with a longstanding tradition and track record of reliability behind it. It is precisely this reliability which makes it so valuable. What more could you ask for in a watch? Not only is it durable, it is attractive as well. It makes a perfect gift for a loved one. It can even be viewed as a personal investment as its value will only increase over time. There is no reason to consider any other brand. Timekeeping is raised to a beautiful art form by these beautiful watches and you definitely will not regret your choice when you glance at your watch to tell the time.
