Looks like Victorinox didn’t to let B&R (amongst others) be the only ones digging into their own past for a new collection. Not surprisingly, they’re calling it the Classic model. What does all of this reminiscing get you? Let’s have a closer look.
For the asking price of $295, you’ll get a watch with the following:
- A 40 mm Nylon Fiber case with aluminum bezel and stainless steel case back
- Swiss analog quartz movemen
- Shatter resistant, hardened mineral crystal
- Luminous hands
- Date Calendar
- Nylon “NATO” Strap
- WR: 100m
Nothing fancy, nothing overly complicated. Just a watch that seems like it would be light-wearing on the wrist (between the case and the strap) and give you reliable, trouble-free, time keeping. I personally like the “sandwich” style on the dial, as it hearkens to another of my favorite brands, the Panerai – albeit in a much more affordable way. For some reason, the green one really grabbed my attention, though the bronze and grey combo looks sharp as well.
