Victorinox Swiss Army Infantry GMT

After the recent launch of three editions in golden steel, the 2014 Infantry collection is expanding again, this time with a very useful GMT model. The ideal complication for long distance travellers, the Infantry GMT is equipped with a quartz movement and available with a steel mesh bracelet or an ecologically tanned leather strap.

In addition to indicating the time and date, the Infantry GMT also indicates a second time zone of the wearer’s choosing. This is a much appreciated complication for world travellers, as it allows one to track local time and the hour back at home. Along with the dial’s hour, minute and second hand is a red central hand marking the hour in the second time zone. The second time zone numbers are engraved on the bezel, with the number 24 printed in red at noon in Victorinox red, the same iconic colour used on many of the brand’s classic knife cases.

In every way, Infantry GMT remains faithful to the qualities that have made the line a success. The 40mm stainless steel case retains its fluid and clean lines. Stylistic references are principally drawn from the world of military watches, but it also has retro appeal. This is particularly evident in the design of the indexes, which are inspired by old typewriter fonts.

Infantry GMT is powered by Swiss Made Ronda 515 quartz movement and comes with an ecologically tanned brown leather strap or a Milanese-style steel bracelet.
