When it comes to precision timing, Victorinox is a brand that takes its commitment to quality very seriously. Their latest offering, the Victorinox I.N.O.X. Chrono, exemplifies this dedication. This remarkable timepiece combines carved shapes, strong geometrics, innovative materials, and the brand’s industrial heritage with Swiss precision to master time and events.
This unique design masterpiece effortlessly balances strength, elegance, and performance while seamlessly incorporating elements from the brand’s Swiss Army Knife roots. Arianna Frésard, Head of Category Watches at Victorinox, explains, “I.N.O.X. is the most iconic Victorinox watch collection and is the inspiration behind our new design approach. We’ve blended elegance, strong geometrics, and industrial codes into a combination of functionality, resistance, and innovative material mixes. The result reflects our industrial-derived ability to deliver modern sophistication.”
Back to the Basics: A Tribute to Swiss Army Knife
The Victorinox I.N.O.X. Chrono pays homage to the famous Swiss Army Knife by integrating the popular Alox pattern, a well-known feature of pocketknife scales. The watch case boasts robust shapes and curves, and the redesigned signature bezel appears as though it was skillfully carved by a sharp pocketknife. Even the Swiss Army Knife itself is subtly referenced in the counterweight of the second hand. At its core, this watch houses a chronograph movement, ideal for individuals seeking performance in their daily lives. Antimagnetic protection ensures precise timekeeping, guaranteeing absolute punctuality and reliability.
Industrial Roots and Innovative Materials
The brand’s industrial roots are mirrored in the innovative materials used for the diverse range of models, including steel, a titanium case, and a carbon bezel, or an all-carbon version for a lightweight and sporty feel. ISO certification for shock and water resistance grants each watch owner the freedom to embark on any adventure or activity.
Manufactured in Delémont: Swiss Excellence
As a true Swiss brand with over a century of expertise in industrialization and steelworking, Victorinox has progressively verticalized its watch manufacturing process. Starting with the launch of the first I.N.O.X. watch in 2014, the production of internal components began and expanded to include stainless steel/metal components. The brand also ventured into crafting titanium components, a challenging but exciting endeavor. Today, depending on the line, complete cases or components like bezels, middle cases, movement holders, containers, or back cases are not just assembled but produced in-house. Victorinox’s authentic design and unwavering commitment to quality showcase the brand’s expertise, ensuring consumers are prepared for any situation.
Victorinox proudly states that its watches are designed, developed, tested, and manufactured by Victorinox in its own factory, the Watch Competence Center in Delémont, Switzerland. This commitment makes the brand truly unique, and in the coming years, Victorinox will continue to enhance this integration with upcoming lines. “Swiss Made” is not just a mark of quality; it’s Victorinox’s promise to continually improve. A 5-year warranty underscores the brand’s high-quality approach.
Personalization Option: Tailor Your Timepiece
To be prepared for any situation, all-new Victorinox watches offer a wide selection of straps. With an innovative strap-changing system that requires no tools, you can switch straps in seconds. This allows you to personalize your watch to match your outfit or activity of the day with options like paracord, rubber, leather, wood, and more. Furthermore, these watches align with the brand’s heritage of high quality and functionality.
