Do you want the swiss army knife of watches, or a Swiss Army Watch?


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.

Given the materials involved, I’d be tempted to say you could wear this as a “beater” – but the price may give you second thoughts about that title.   All in all, looks like another solid and durable addition to the Swiss Army line of watches.

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.
