Victorinox Swiss Army launches Infantry collection
Victorinox Swiss Army watches recently launched the 'Infantry' collection available with two bracelet choices - an organic black leather strap and a stainless-steel Milanese-type mesh bracelet.
The models are easy-to-adjust, flexible, thin and elegant while the steel bracelet transforms the timepiece, giving it a more urban, jewelry and feminine look.
Compared to previous versions, the curve of the box is smoother and more fluid.
From the side, the silhouette is reminiscent of the Victorinox Officer's knife.
On the dial, a new font, inspired by old typewriters, gives the watch a vintage touch. The numbers, indexes and hands are, as before, covered with luminescent material, the company claimed.
At the entry level, Victorinox offers a three hand version simply called Infantry, with a date window and Ronda 715 quartz movement.
It has a small additional detail on its dial, the military hours discreetly printed above the classic numerals.
Moreover, for those who prefer fine mechanics, there is the Infantry Mechanical, with a self-winding ETA 2824-2 movement.
Finally, for fans of sports watches, there is the Infantry Chronograph, outfitted with a Ronda 5030-D quartz movement.
It displays three counters on the dial, as well as traditional push buttons to the right of the case middle on each side of the protected crown.
All three models are waterproof to 100 meters and have a 40 mm case--signs that they cater to everyone, both men and women.
