If you’re looking for the perfect watch for someone who values form as much as function, the new Heritage Collection from Victorinox Swiss Army is a worthy choice. The Heritage series is inspired by the original iconic design of the bestselling Swiss Army watch from the ’80s and ’90s. Like the original series, the Victorinox Swiss Army Heritage Collection is equal parts rugged and legible, paying tribute to the historical Swiss Army military design language and resulting in a subtle vintage look and feel. And this new series arrives just in time for the holiday shopping season. The Victorinox Swiss Army Heritage Collection series is a great introduction to the brand for new watch enthusiasts and a spot-on choice for those who are already well-versed in the Swiss Army brand — as well as anyone who enjoys a vintage aesthetic, authentic design language, and tried-and-true reliability on the wrist.
A genuine field watch in terms of both form and function, the Victorinox Swiss Army Heritage Collection features the brand’s iconic red seconds hand with a counterweight in the shape of the legendary Swiss Army Knife, and these watches also have a red cross and shield on the dial, both instantly recognizable design elements of Swiss Army DNA.
Like all products from Victorinox, quality and functionality are translated into this line. To offer high readability, both day and night, the watch features distinct numerals and generously sized minute and hour hands, each coated with Super-LumiNova (with the exception of the numerals on the models with a white dial). And a newly designed bezel pays homage to the original by which it is inspired.
Durability is ensured by the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and crown protection in the form of a triple application of anti-reflective coating. Inside, a reliable Swiss Made Ronda 715 movement powers the watch.
The Victorinox Swiss Army Heritage Collection watches come in nine variations on the retro-cool theme, each 40mm — which means they fit a wide range of wrist sizes — ranging in price from $300-$375, making it not unreasonable to pick up a couple different styles for your own collection and give as holiday gifts. Choose from a black dial with black leather strap, a blue dial with brown leather strap, a white dial with black leather strap, and a green ideal with a green NATO strap — all for $300 USD each. Coming in at $350 are the black PVD-white dial with brown leather strap, the black PVD-black dial with black leather strap, the black PVD-blue dial with brown leather strap, and the black PVD-green dial with black NATO strap. And for $375, you can get a black dial with a stainless steel bracelet.
