Be still my heart! Victorinox releasing a Valjoux chrono!

I’ve always wanted a mechanical Swiss Army watch. It’s been a private dream of mine, stuck somewhere between the jet-pack and dating Milla Jovovich. I know that Victorinox once made mechanicals but now they’re making them again, and I couldn’t be happier. There are two models one with an “olive and cream dial with luminescent hands and numerals on a genuine brown leather strap for $1695 and a black dial with PVD case and bracelet for $1895, not too bad for a Valjoux 7750. The model first appeared with a quartz movement but now is going automatic. Huzzah!

These should be available this winter at Victorinox stores near you. Now if only I could do something about Jovovich.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
