This brand with the Swiss cross in its logo is a true child of the years of rapid industrialization in Central Europe. Today it is a symbol of Switzerland, next to the well-known cheese and chocolate. The brand was founded in 1884 as an official knife maker for the Swiss army and in the more than 125 years of its existence, the practical and versatile officer's knife known as the Swiss army knife has become legendary. This army knife has become a household name in its most important market: the United States.
Swiss quality Victorinox watches
However, the Victorinox group, a family business, includes a handful of other divisions, with products that are all highlights of functionality coupled with style. Top quality, high reliability and consistent functionality are also characteristic of the watches of this brand, as well as its business practice. Faced with a severe recession, CEO Karl Elsener struggled to find other ways for redundant workers to earn their living until the storm passed, while he himself entered new markets and developed new products, such as a range of suitcases and perfumes. Since the acquisition of the American subsidiary Swiss Army Brands, Inc. in 2002 the Victorinox group adopted the name Victorinox Swiss Army and successfully started applying the proverbial versatility and robustness of the practical pocket knives to the affordable watch line. Proof of this can be found in the Infantry, Airboss and Alpnach watches, which have been introduced in recent years and have established themselves in the market. On the Chrono Classic, the hour and minute hands of the watch are ingeniously converted into a chronograph, with hundredths of a second indicated in the large date window.
