Inspired by the ingenuity of the Original Swiss Army Knife”: the motto underlying the philosophy of Victorinox Swiss Army’s timepieces has never been more appropriate. To celebrate the 125th anniversary of its parent company Victorinox,the maker of the Original Swiss Army Knife, the watch design team at Victorinox Swiss Army realized the old dream of combining a timepiece with the folding system invented for the Victorinox pocket knife in 1884.
Joining their forces, the technical teams of both the knife and watch divisions have managed to apply the principle of the retractable blade to the design of a stylish pocket watch. The resulting Pocket Watch Alarm features the same spring effect and “click” sound as the Original Swiss Army Knife, the same red side-panels made of sturdy MABS plastic composite, and even includes the famous toothpick and tweezers found in all Victorinox pocket knives.
The Pocket Watch Alarm sports a Swiss-made quartz movement with an alarm feature, activated by a pusher at 2 o’clock, a date calendar and the functional design and high legibility typical of all Victorinox Swiss Army timepieces. This very special model is limited in 1884 pieces worldwide in honor of the foundation’s year of Victorinox.
