Victorinox’s Vintage

August 6, 2011

Victorinox’s Infantry Vintage Mechanical’s tone-on-tone colour block combination is an industry first.

The new Infantry Vintage Mechanical from Victorinox is trimmer in case size from its mechanical predecessors, in keeping with contemporary watch aesthetics. The look is simpler but refined: the tone-on-tone colour block combinations set it apart. The dial presentation has three bold hands and three circles of indicators – 24-hour military markers in the middle, oversized Arabic hours around them, and a 60-minute/second track with 5-second intervals at the dial periphery.

Every surface is satin-finished, with cut and polished angles subtly bringing a shimmering light to the outline. Generous volumes of luminescence – on the minute, hour hands and markers, greatly increase the watch’s night legibility. Anti-glare treatment on the sapphire crystal makes it equally easy to read in direct sunlight.

The standout case coating in an exclusive Black Ice PVD coating is a pollution-free and non-allergenic technology issued from the aeronautic industry. The warm and lustrous depth of the colour is underlined by its soft contrast with a brown dial and matching leather strap. The tone-on-tone color block combination available in black, beige, brown and indigo blue is an industry first.

The 3-hand, stainless steel case, leather strap is Rs. 50,000 approx while 3-hand, stainless steel case with Black Ice PVD treatment, leather strap is Rs. 55,000 approx.


Victorinox’s Alliance

Victorinox’s 2011 Alliance roll out emphasizes fluidity and dynamism

Serious, sober, function-driven design using Swiss-made components and crafted materials of the highest caliber, that what the Victorinox Alliance Line is all about.

The Alliance line has steadily evolved since its earliest incarnations. This year’s new Alliance rollout emphasizes fluidity and dynamism. The lyre-shaped watch horns are elongated. Dial styles reflect the spare, essentialist design philosophy: lacquered black but not glossy; silver, satin-finished, with a sunray effect subtly catching the light; or slate grey and matte-finished. Brand new is the presence of only three Arabic numerals on the dial face — at three, six and nine o’clock. Elsewhere, raised and sharp-edged markers indicate the hour. The date window is at six on the watch and angled between four and five on the chronograph. Soft leather for the strap or a classic bracelet in three-link steel, with alternating finishes or understated colour variants.

Available with black, charcoal grey and silver dials and  3-row alternating-finish steel bracelet or leather strap in black, charcoal grey and camel, Alliance Line is priced between Rs 30,000 to Rs 50,000.
