Victorinox INOX lands locally, priced at Php27,500




Today marks the official debut of the rugged timepiece from Victorinox Swiss Army called I.N.O.X. Mind you it’s not the typical weather-proof watch that we often see in the tech segment, rather a watch that was ran over by a 64-ton tank and lived to tell about it.

During our short interview with Victorinox’s marketing head, he mentioned that the company wanted to incorporate most, if not all of the features that made their Swiss Army knives popular. That includes simple but refined design, coupled with a world-class durability that will last a long time.


 

To ensure that they all have their bases covered, Victorinox has put their new timepiece through its paces and conducted 130 stress tests which include (but not limited to) temperature shocks, exposing the watch to direct flame for a minute and dropping it from a height equivalent to three stories high.

Victorinox INOX specs:

Reinforced stainless-steel case
Scratch-resistant Sapphire crystal glass715
Swiss-made Ronda 715
Stamped indexes and luminescent markers
Water-resistant to 200 meters
Colors: Black, Khaki Green and Navy Blue

The new Victorinox INOX is now out in the market and currently being retailed for Php27,500. It’s available in L Time Studio, Chronos and Victorinox boutiques.

    How far will it go compared to G-shocks?

    People nowadays tend to buy Rugged wristwatches only to be displayed. :D

      Well why else do you need to spend 10k pesos plus for a watch? Simply to show your wealth. It is for displaying and aesthetic purposes.

      @truthboy: Susme! e sino ba may gusto ng pangit na relo? ikaw siguro….. depende yan sa kakayahan (financial capacity) ng isang tao. Kung bumili ka ba ng damit o sapatos, yung mumurahin at madaling masira? Kung open minded ka maintindihan mo sinasabi ko.

      that one right there is a piece of swiss engineering, and i believe those are 70-90% handcrafted which makes the price slightly higher than the competitors .. and the swiss have the unbeatable reputation for making watches for generations..
